It's lovely to be hero: Tom Hiddleston on 'Kong - Skull Island' role

Washington D.C. [USA], Mar. 5 (ANI): After finding fame as Thor's villainous brother Loki in the Marvel movies 'Captain America: Civil War' and 'Thor,' Tom Hiddleston is now all set to turn into a hero for 'Kong: Skull Island'.

The 36-year-old actor told USA Today, "Action has always been a part of me. In the Marvel films, it's hidden in the playfulness and mischief of that character. But actually, there's several one-to-ones with 'Captain America' and 'Thor' where the action requires choreography. But 'Kong' puts all of that centre stage."

"It's like, this (Tom's character former SAS tracker Captain James Conrad)

is the guy you want on the ground in a jungle. It's lovely to be a hero," the 'Crimson Peak' star added.

Tom's 'Kong' character is introduced to viewers with a bar fight scene but the actor admitted he would probably "get the hell out of there" in a similar situation.

The movie is all set to hit the theatres in the US on March 10. (ANI)
