Tom Hiddleston, best known for playing Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies, has hinted that he might appear as Loki one last time in the upcoming "Thor: Ragnarok."
In an interview with Daily Beast, the 35-year-old actor talked about the future of Loki and what role he has in "Thor: Ragnarok" as the stepbrother of God of Thunder and his archenemy.
"'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," Hiddleston said.
While fans of the God of Mischief might find the statement shocking, Hiddleston has kept his options open. When asked whether he would appear in any of the "Avengers: Infinity War" movies, Hiddleston said he didn't know as yet.
"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," he said.
Debuting in 2011 as Loki in "Thor," Hiddleston has played the character in two other MCU movies — "The Avengers" and "Thor: The Dark World."
Even though Hiddleston has confirmed for now his last appearance as Loki in "Thor Ragnarok," he might return to reprise the role in "Avengers: Infinity War Part I," according to Blastr.
Blastr has said the actors are not told of their role in MCU movies before the script of a particular film is finished. Given that Loki is one of the most popular characters in the MCU, there is a significant chance the Russo brothers will cast him in the upcoming Avengers movies as well.
Till then, fans can only hope to see Loki returning to the future MCU movies doing what he does best — creating trouble for the Avengers. "Thor: Ragnarok" is scheduled to release Nov. 3, 2017.
