Is a Loki movie moving forward at Marvel? That’s the big question that fans have at the moment as a petition makes the rounds to try and get the Marvel to save the character of Loki and continue his legacy into his own franchise. With the likes of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America dominating the Marvel circuit, fans have clung to the villainous Loki and are trying to fight for him to get his own film.
ComicBook.com picked up on the petition before Entertainment Weekly or any other publication did and they are now reporting that actor Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, is going to be holding a Twitter Q&A session with fans where the topic of a Loki movie will almost certainly come up.
Marvel Comics has just announced that Tom Hiddleston will be engaging in a question and answer session on Twitter on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 12 PM
With it being a social media Q&A, just because the Loki petition questions come doesn’t mean they’ll be filtered in to Hiddleston and answered.
But the idea of a Loki movie is now something that many fans outside of the pro-Loki circle are starting to consider. With Marvel’s brand being as massive as it is, a Loki movie would make sense. But as we’ve seen numerous times, when films are made specifically and solely because fans want it, you get Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Marvel is on top of it’s strategy, but they might work Loki into their Phase 3 strategy if nothing else.
