“Black Mirror” stars Tom Hiddleson and Tom Taylor are joining the cast of Thor: Ragnarok, the studio announced on Thursday.
“Black Light” star Taylor will play Thor’s right hand, while Hiddlesons role will be that of Loki, who has taken over the throne as ruler of Asgard after his father, Odin, is killed.
Taylor, who plays a character who is based on himself in the comic book series, has appeared in the movies and TV series “The Avengers” and is now known as the Black Light.
Taylor and Hiddlesonell have previously worked together on the TV series, which ran for five seasons from 2018 to 2020.
“Tom and I have known each other for a long time,” Hiddlleston said in a statement.
“I’m thrilled to be part of this amazing team, and to be able to be a part of Thor Ragnarok.
We are both incredibly grateful for the support of the Marvel Studios community.”
Taylor, Hiddlesones and Hiddslons daughter, who is also a producer, are set to appear as Asgardians in Thor: The Dark World, which hits theaters on Nov. 3.
In the comic books, Loki is the brother of Odin, who was slain by Thor in the final battle of the movie series.
The Asgardians have taken over Asgard and are now known to be the biggest threat to humanity.
They were initially sent to Earth to conquer the world, but the gods intervened, allowing the humans to escape.
Hiddsons character was initially supposed to die at the end of the film, but he returned in the sequel.
He was originally set to be killed off by Thor, but a change of heart resulted in him appearing in the movie and being re-inserted into the series.
Taylor also appeared in “The Hunger Games” movie as a villain and appeared in an episode of “Breaking Bad” in 2014.
He recently returned to TV, playing the role of Dr. James Grant on “Breaking Time.”
Hiddlinston also has worked with Disney on a number of projects, including the upcoming film “Aquaman,” which is being produced by Marvel Studios.
