Tom Hiddleston reveals his reaction to seeing Matt Damon dressed up in Loki costume for his hilarious cameo in 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok”.
It is safe to say that almost every Marvel fan was shocked upon seeing the “The Last Duel” star Matt Damon wearing the Loki costume instead of Tom Hiddleston and also seeing Luke Hemsworth dressed up as Thor in place of Chris Hemsworth for their cameo in “Thor: Ragnarok”.
Now, the real actor behind the titular hero of the Disney plus show, “Loki”, has also shared his feelings about this out-of-the-box idea.
Tom Hiddleston came virtually on the Jimmy Kimmel Live” to have a chat with the eponymous host about Matt Damon’s Loki cameo while also talking about the “Stillwater” actor reprising his role in the upcoming “Thor: Love and Thunder”.
Jimmy asked Tom Hiddleston the following question: “Were you disappointed when you found out he (Matt Damon) would be playing your character?”
To which Tom replied, “Loki, as we know, contains multitudes, and somehow contains Matt Damon, even in that suit … It’s kind of like Matt’s trying to bump me from my own character.”
Then Jimmy Kimmel made a comment on his old frenemy by saying, “Yes, he’s always taking things that don’t belong to him and trying to get into places where he’s unwelcome.”
Tom Hiddleston also quipped on Matt Damon by saying, “All I can say is, next time there’s a Jason Bourne movie, maybe, in another reality, there’s another Jason Bourne (he pointed to himself) around the corner.”
In another interview, Tom shared his feelings about having Matt Damon return in Thor: Love and Thunder” instead of him. He stated that:
“Well, I have no ownership as you know. [Laughs] Loki contains multitudes, and he contains Matt Damon. I was so amused on that—I can’t remember, it was a couple of days on Ragnarok when he came in and did his thing. It was like looking into a very slightly distorted mirror. And his take on the whole thing was just hilarious, so I can’t wait to see what they’ve been doing.”
Although with the introduction of Multiverse we may see Loki from the alternate universe meet other Marvel heroes in future projects.
