Tom Hiddleston, the actor famous for playing Thor villain Loki, has earned himself a bunch of new and much younger fans in the promotional run up to the upcoming release of action movie, Thor: The Dark World.
Tom Hiddleston's Loki Comedy Central Slot Will Be Aired On Tuesday Night.
Appearing on Comedy Central tomorrow night, Hiddleston as Loki will address a new array of loyal earthling subjects...in a kindergarten class. Bedecked in his Loki gear, including a wig, robe and white face paint, Loki can be seen sitting on a brightly colored beanbag whilst his four new 'minions' sit around him.
"I'm Loki of Asgard," he announces against a backdrop of toys and books. One of the little girls then raises her hand and responds, "I'm Diana of New Jersey." Loki puffs his cheeks and rolls his eyes in exasperation before conceding, "We'll be friends, that's fine."
Hiddleston & Hemsworth Will Return As Loki & Thor On 8th Nov.
Though all four of the children will be too young to watch Hiddleston's PG-13 new release in the cinema, Loki has been a hit amongst younger generations, having scored a Kids' Choice Award for favorite villain.

The new movie will see the hammer-wielding Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and his evil brother Loki team up to guard against a new evil, the dark elf Malekeith who'll be played by former Doctor Who, Christopher Eccleston.
Hiddleston's Comedy Central slot will round of a summer of promotional work for the new superhero film during which he has surprised 300 kids at a sneak preview of the second Thor film for two children's charities in New York. Furthermore, the green villain whipped his many fans into a whirlwind of excitement after he interrupted Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige's panel at Comic Con in Hall H this year.
Watch The 'Thor: The Dark World' Trailer:
The lights cut out and Hiddleston as Loki strode on to the stage, booming venomously "Humanity! Look how far you've fallen. Lining up in the sweltering heat for hours, huddling together in the dark, like beasts!" to a reception of deafening screams. "I am burdened with glorious purpose," he said, before presenting the new Thor trailer to the reverent crowd.
Thor: The Dark World will be released on the 8th November.
