While the internet plays host to a number of devoted fans, those of Tom Hiddleston are some of the most devoted, showcased by their petition signing to get Marvel to create a solo film for Loki. This is what they had to say:
“We respectfully yet strongly request Marvel put into action a full-length feature film production based on the Marvel character Loki portrayed by Tom Hiddleston,” writes the Free Loki petition. “We feel Loki (as portrayed by Tom Hiddleston), due to the astounding following both the character and actor have earned as a result of the Marvel films, more than warrants further exploration of his story. We believe such an endeavor would not only be profitable and successful but provide a larger view for general audiences of the incredibly complex and diverse personality a well-known villain of the Marvel universe is gifted with. To explore this darker side of the Thor storyline would be to give credit to a compelling individual, his remarkable portrayer and an appreciative audience that feels a fierce loyalty to both in an unprecedented way.”
Hiddleston took to Twitter to respond to the love (below). But, unfortunately, we’re left only with this truth as it stands: “@ThorMovies is, definitively, the only one on the slate for now. But… never say never.”
The petition needs a total of 30,000 signatures before being handed over to Marvel, and at present the goal is short of 6,576 supporters. To show your love, head over to Change.org to add yours.
