Tom Hiddleston has been a shining star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the films themselves have ranged from really good to spectacular, the villains have been rather bland…except for Loki. Being badass enough to take on Asgard in the first Thor film and then being the reason that the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes assemble in Avengers puts him at the top of the villain list right now.
But the future looks a bit muddled for the Trickster God as of late.
The Daily Beast interviewed Hiddleston and asked him about his excitement for the third Thor film, Ragnarok:
THOR 3 will be cool because I’ve not done it for four years. I love working with Chris [Hemsworth]. This will be my last time out of the gate.
Wait…what? Did the actor just confirm that Loki won’t be in any more Marvel movies like Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 or Part 2?
I don’t know! Honestly, I don’t know. They haven’t got their ducks in a row yet. They make it up as they go along.
I’d be more than a little bummed if we didn’t get a little Loki / Thanos interaction, seeing as the Second Son of Asgard used the Mad Titan’s army during the first Avengers film. This would just bring things full circle.
Hiddleston could just be swerving us. He’s been around the Marvel Studio’s press circuit enough to know how to get a rise out of journalists and fans to get them talking. Until we see a death scene in Thor: Raganrok I’ll still expect to see him around.
And even if he does die during the Twilight of the Gods …well, it’s not like death in comics is a permanent thing. The film’s will probably be no different.
