Even after a decade in the role, actor Tom Hiddleston never appears to become weary of discussing Loki. Hiddleston talked about the TV show in a new pre-finale interview with Deadline, and however the actor was mindful so as to evade spoilers, he made them dream to do on the future of Loki and the MCU.
The series’ final episode has aired since the interview was led, uncovering more about the direction the MCU is heading, as well as the mid-credits declaration that Loki would be returning for another season. Before the declaration was made, Hiddleston was bashful when gotten some information about getting back to the role, however he discussed his journey as Loki.
“I have learned, at this point, having said goodbye to the character more than twice, two and a half times maybe, to make no assumptions,” the actor said. “So, it’s not up to me. But I do love playing him, and every time, I seem to find new, interesting things about him. So, yeah, I’m a temporary passenger on Loki’s journey, but we’ll see. We’ll see where the ride goes now.”
Hiddleston additionally discussed Loki’s journey as a character, and how it’s shifted over the direction of the TV show. “Loki’s someone who’s probably been deluded by the idea that he’s burdened with glorious purpose, and that perhaps that purpose has been revealed to be fraudulent or meaningless, and maybe his self-image or the role that he has condemned himself to play is redundant,” Hiddleston explained. “His experiences through this story have shown him that there are actually more opportunities available to him, and you know, it speaks to this idea, like, can we change? Can we evolve, and in that evolution, is there room to grow?”
The actor likewise has all the earmarks of being similarly pretty much as energized as most fans about what the TV show implies for the bigger MCU storyline that is creating. “I feel that the MCU is even more expansive, is even braver, more inclusive than it’s ever been,” Hiddleston clarified.
“I think the stories are getting really exciting,” he added when pushed for more detail. “Not that they weren’t before, but I think they understand that the investment of the audience is very deep, and they don’t take it for granted for a second. So, yeah, I suppose the perspective I have on how Loki might affect the ongoing course of the MCU is this idea of the multiverse.”
While the actor clearly can’t part with anything excessively detailed about the future of the franchise, he was more than happy to speculate. “I know that there are lots of, you know, interesting titles of movies that’ve been announced, which kind of hint at where it might be going,” he said.
