As crazy as this might sound it seems as the days go by, actor Tom Hiddleston's portrayal of Loki is easily the second most popular part of Marvel Studios' Cinematic Universe. After Robert Downey Jr.'s portrayal of Tony Stark and Iron Man, of course. The ladies love them some Loki and his villainy on the big screen can already be compared to some of the best villains ever created in movies.

All of this after only being in two movies. This November, Loki will once again be on the big screen in Thor: The Dark World and his role has expanded, via reshoots, in the sequel from the moment principle photography wrapped in January.

Reshoots are not uncommon in the movie business. Sometimes it's because an additional scene is needed to create a better flow in the film, while other times entire parts of a movie need to be cut and replaced.

Loki actor Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to the Huffington Post about the Thor 2 reshoots and how his role is expanding since some of his past ideas about the villain were also added to the reshoot process too.

"I don't know quite how the decision was made, but we weren't redoing things we'd done before. We were adding new stuff. So that was fun for me. And some of the things were scenes I'd actually pitched for a long time ago."

The actor continued to talk about how open Marvel Studios executives are to ideas and collaboration with actors' ideas.

"Well, the thing about Kevin Feige is he's very, very open and collaborative. And he and Louis D'Esposito, who run the studio—I find it very admirable that they're open to ideas. Possibly more now than they would have been the first go-around. Chris Hemsworth and myself have lived inside these characters for two movies now and we've been inside every scene and we know what works and we know what doesn't work."

Again, reshoots are not a bad thing (most times) and even Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was said to work down to the wire where Disney needs to literally pry the final cut of a movie out of his hands in order for them to get it out to all the theaters on time. When you have someone like Feige who is so committed to making an excellent product for viewers, reshoots are a good thing especially when you're getting more Loki than what was previously scripted and filmed.

Thor: The Dark World releases on November 8, 2013.
