Tom Hiddleston joins Instagram, posts photo as Loki

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9 (UPI) — Tom Hiddleston is the latest celebrity to join Instagram.

The 35-year-old English actor debuted on the photo-sharing site Tuesday morning and has since gained a respectable 286,000 followers.

Hiddleston shared a picture of himself from the Thor: Ragnarok set as his first post, writing, “He’s back!” The snapshot shows the actor in costume as Loki, the adoptive brother of Thor (Chris Hemsworth).

Hiddleston first played Loki in the 2011 movie Thor and has since portrayed the character in The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World. Thor: Ragnarok is slated to open in theaters Nov. 3, 2017.

“I think the experience being in the Avengers has changed Thor as a character,” the actor said of the sequel to Deadline in July. “He’s picked up a few Earthly ways and certainly a few Earthly companions.”

“Also, the experience of being on Earth, I think, has changed Loki,” he added before teasing, “When you see the three characters who haven’t shared the same space since the end of The Avengers there’s a lot that happens to great dramatic and comedic effects.”

He’s back!
