Usually when fans start a petition to a movie studio it’s about a controversial casting decision, which they disagree with. However, in the case of Marvel Studios casting Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the exact opposite has occurred.
Even though Loki is a villain and supervillains don’t usually get their own movies, fans want to see a Loki movie so much that they've started a petition. The Free Loki petition states: “The character Loki, as portrayed by Tom Hiddleston in the films ‘Thor,’ ‘Thor 2,’ and ‘The Avengers’ (2012), has become one of the most recognizable and cherished film characters in recent years. Hence, 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.”
The Free Loki petition passed over 10,000 signatures on this past Friday and is now closing in on 11,000 signatures. Will Marvel Studios listen and grant fans the Loki movie which they seek? After Tom Hiddleston’s Loki speech proved to be one of the biggest highlights of 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios added more Loki scenes to the upcoming Thor: The Dark World, so there’s always the possibility that a Loki spinoff movie could be the next step.
