During a recent chat with Total Film for their issue 212 cover story, Tom Hiddleston was asked about Loki’s lovelife, and in particular about the potential of the villainous ‘Enchantress’ joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “When I was first reading the comics, the relationship with the Enchantress was one of the really fun things I thought would be good to explore, and may have even pitched it to Kevin Feige at some point. Because she is as sneaky and as untrustworthy as he was. They basically had a really fantastic and twisted relationship until they both say, “You know what? I don’t trust you as far as I can throw you. It’s over.” Because they keep betraying each other, in a way. So it could be good.”
