Tom Hiddleston Gave “Loki Lectures” to the ‘Loki’ Cast, and Other Marvel Stars Want In. Recently the cast of Marvel Studios Disney+ Series’ WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki spoke with Variety regarding their respective shows, the move to Disney+, and notably, how Tom Hiddleston wound up giving his new co-stars and Marvel newcomers “Loki Lectures” that lasted longer than the first 6 episodes of the series!
Hiddleston shared with his fellow Marvel stars, “There was a whiteboard, I’m afraid. I said to Kate Herron, our director, ‘Would it be helpful if I gave everybody all the information at the same time?’ And Kate and Kevin Wright, our producer, were like, ‘That’s a brilliant idea.’ Shamefully, it then became a Loki lecture.”
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s Anthony Mackie added, “Everybody was talking about it. Tom Hiddleston gave a six-hour symposium on Loki, and we were not invited! Sebastian and I, they made us work. They scheduled one of our biggest scenes so we could not sneak out and crash the Tom Hiddleston symposium.”
During the Loki press event, Tom’s co-stars shared their appreciation for the “Loki Lectures” with Owen Wilson sharing, “Before we started filming, Tom very generously and patiently kind of taking me through the whole sort of MCU mythology and Loki. We were calling them the Loki lectures. And [he let] me kind of ask questions. I think that was really important and really helpful to our dynamic once we started filming the scenes.” Wilson continued, “Because some of our conversations just when we were kind of going over that stuff, would work its way in. That was really helpful to me going to Loki school before we began.“
Tom added to Owen’s comment, “It was such an interesting time trying to compress the experience of my time in the MCU and six movies. And, Mobius is an expert in Loki. He knows more about Loki than Loki does.“
