Loki Shows Up on the Avengers Movie Set

Tom Hiddleston as Loki in The Avengers Movie Set

I don’t think it’s much of a spoiler to say that one of the villains in Joss Whedon’s upcoming superhero team-up spectacular is Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston of “Thor” fame, right? I think everyone knows this, and if you don’t, then you’re probably not reading this post anyway. Okay, so here’s Hiddleston as Loki doing his evil deed thing on the Cleveland set of “The Avengers”.


Cleveland has stood in for New York City in recent days, but it appears parts of it (Public Square and Terminal Tower) have now been turned into … Stuttgart Germany. Huh. I had no idea Cleveland was so versatile.

According to one of the movie’s extra, Terminal Tower was being used as a museum, and the extra told NewsChannel5 that the character Loki, played by Tom Hiddleston, killed someone in front of hundreds of museum visitors and was making his getaway when the police arrived. Hundreds of extras were seen running in fear multiple times from the set.

The most exciting part of the night came at around 2:30 a.m. when the crew used a pneumatic ram mounted in the rear of a German police car to flip it onto its roof. The setup for the stunt took a few hours and had to be done twice because the first time the car did not flip completely onto its roof.

Oh, Loki, you bad boy, you.

“The Avengers” assemble May 4th, 2012, with superheroes Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, and Cobie Smulders on the roster.
