From the first moment Loki appeared on screen in the first Thor movie, he has been a fan favorite. Furthering cementing his place in fans’ hearts was his performance in The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World. And after over a decade of being a part of the MCU, stillabae.com/tag/tom-hiddleston spoke about his future in the franchise, beyond the upcoming Disney Plus series.
Loki and Thor are brothers and in the first Thor movie the younger brother grow tired with Asgard and his former home. Plotting and scheming to be the king of Asgard, Tom’s character caused the ousting of the god of thunder. Then he proceeded to try and kill Thor in Earth, but slowly the brothers became close again and almost started caring for one another by the time they met Thanos in space.
And since his introduction the character of Loki has gone through multiple iterations with Marvel. From a jealous brother, to a super villain, to an ally, and an anti-hero, no character in MCU has gone through these many iterations. So, it is of interest to fans what new version of the trickster is going to grace us next and Tom Hiddleston explained his own idea for the future.
Tom Hiddleston Explains His Future in the MCU as Loki After the Disney Plus Show
Spoilers ahead! In Thor: Ragnarok we finally saw the brothers reunited again as the god of thunder showed his indifference towards his brother after all the chaos he caused. But despite it all we all knew Thor loved his younger brother, that theory was proved further when Thanos arrived onboard the Asgardian ship escaping the burning Asgard.
Infinity War opened with Thanos laying waste to Thor‘s ship and killing half of the people on-board. Then Loki comes out to save his brother by giving the Mad Titan the tesseract. But when Loki turns on him and goes for the kill, Thanos snaps his neck, saying the death was real this time. It felt real as a broken Thor sat with his dead brother.
Well, things took a different turn in Endgame when the Captain and Iron Man arrive in 2014 through time travel. They are there to take the tesseract and the scepter but a Hulk happened to their plans as Tony let the tesseract slip from his grasps all the way to Loki‘s foot where the trickster acted quickly, grabbing the Infinity Stone and opening a portal to somewhere else.
This meant the growth in Loki‘s character over the next decade never happened and he is still the “Puny God” who got beat by a green monster. So, this is a new chapter and new iteration for the beloved character, something Tom explained was exciting. But for how long can Loki keep changing and how long will the beloved actor keep playing the actor, well, Tom Hiddleston dropped some hints.
Tom Hiddleston told Entertainment Weekly, “I’m open to everything. I have said goodbye to the character. I’ve said hello to the character. I said goodbye to the character [again]. I’ve learned not to make assumptions, I suppose. I’m just grateful that I’m still here, and there are still new roads to explore.”
It is true, Loki has died twice already in the MCU and he keeps popping up all over the place. Well, we are not complaining one bit as long as the actor keeps enjoying the character, we are happy watching his have fun. Seeing how excited and into all the marketing ideas Tom is, it does appear as though the actor is enjoying every single day he is spending in the MCU sandbox.
Next, Tom Hiddleston will appear in the Disney Plus series Loki coming to the streaming platform on 9 June 2021. The story of the series follows Loki comes face to face with the Time Variance Authority. They exist beyond time and monitor disturbances. So when Loki causes a variance he is given a choice, either get deleted from time or work for TVA, correcting the timeline.
