Tom Hiddleston drops Loki pic from ‘Thor Ragnarok’ set, James Bond rumors continue

As star Tom Hiddleston put it in his behind-the-scene pic of Loki from the set of Thor: Ragnarok, “He’s back!” Additionally, the Night Manager star tries to escape the constant rumors of James Bond casting, now with rumors that producer Barbara Broccoli doesn’t want the King Kong: Skull Island star as the next 007.

Fans got a look at the disheveled Hiddleton through social media as the filming continues in Australia. Mark Ruffalo recently wrapped his Hulk/Banner role on the film.

Also returning his Chris Hemsworth as titular main character, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Sir Anthony Hopkins again portraying Odin. Cate Blanchett plays the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum stars as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson will bring the classic hero Valkyrie to life on the big screen, and Karl Urban will play as Skurge.

The shoot continues through next month. Kevin Feige will produce the film with executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Brad Winderbaum, Victoria Alonso, Thomas M. Hammel and Stan Lee. The screenplay was written by Stephany Folsom, Craig Kyle, Eric Pearson and Christopher Yost.

Next up is Skull Island for Hiddleston, a big budget reboot of the King Kong franchise arriving in March. There is nothing concrete in Hiddleston’s schedule after the “Phase Three” Marvel flick, so the expect the James Bond rumors to continue, despite the latest news.

Hiddleston is believed to have fallen out of favor with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli. Spy thriller writer Frederick Forsyth told the Daily Mail On Sunday: “I got a tip the other day which I’ll share with you. I understand Barbara Broccoli is absolutely no way going to pick Tom Hiddleston. No. Way.”

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Hiddleston told the BBC host: “The thing is the position isn’t vacant as far as I am aware. No one has talked to me about it. I think the rumours have all come about because in the Night Manager I play a spy and people have made the link.”

Thor: Ragnarok will arrive into theaters on November 3, 2017
