In all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki, known as the God of Mischief is a special character who died a couple of times but came back alive anyway. But when he was choked to death by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, fan knew that it was the end, but until it’s not. In an interview with MTV, Tom Hiddleston revealed that he knew Loki is going to be a part of Disney+ Series about six weeks before the release of Avengers: Infinity War. Tom also spoke about the character Loki and what does it feel like to play it for 10 long years of his entire life. Tom Hiddleston Has Been Lying About Loki’s Fate for A Long Time.
Many actors who are part of the MCU were on the watch by Marvel Studios and were carefully sent to promotional shows in order to ensure there were no spoiler leaks before the film released. Tom Hiddleston was one of them who had to keep his mouth shut for Avengers: Infinity War and unfortunately, he was seen as a cast member on google search for Avengers: Endgame, fans got curious, everybody assumed Loki is going to come back from being dead this time too. But the didn’t happen, we saw Loki from other reality who escaped the Avengers with Tesseract. We will have no idea where he escaped to, until the release of Loki Series in 2021. Hiddleston said,
When we shot [Infinity War], they knew [Loki would be back in Endgame]. For sure, I knew about the Endgame piece. But I knew that in terms of Loki’s journey, the arc was complete at the beginning of Infinity War, and it was very emotional. Josh Brolin was very sweet. He was like ‘I’m sorry, man.’ But also bless them, Joe and Anthony [Russo] were like ‘this is momentous, this is how we’re ending the film and this is the end of Loki and that’s it.’ And when I shot it, I thought that was absolutely the last time I would play the character.
Marvel was clever on what to reveal to their actors at what time, it wasn’t until six weeks before the release of Avengers: Infinity War that Loki actor got the news of Loki Series that is going to be released on Disney+ as part of Marvel phase 4. Imagine how hard it could have been for the actor say Loki is seriously dead this time on all the promotional events and talk shows until San Diego Comic-Con in 2019. He added,
[All that] meant I had to go and do press for Avengers: Infinity War going ‘yup, that’s it, guys. So I did know about it(Loki Series) then, but I didn’t know what the story was. Working with them on what it’s going to be, what the content’s going to be, what the meat and potatoes of the story’s gonna be, the tone, the context, the different challenges, it’s so exciting.
Tom Hiddleston has been playing the role of Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since he was 29. Loki fought Thor, he even fought the Avengers, in spite of Loki’s defeat in the New York battle, he is one of the most favorite and celebrated villains of all time. By the time Loki Series releases, the actor would have spent 10 years of his life as Loki. The funny part is that this spin-off of a villain character is going to have other antagonists and he will have to face hurdles to keep the viewers and fans entertained. Tom is completely satisfied with what is jumping into as an actor. Tom Hiddleston also said,
I feel like I know him intimately. I’ve been playing him for 10 years now, and that’s crazy to me – by the time it’s out, I’ll be 40, and when I was cast, I was 29, which is a great chunk of my life. The point is, there’s this sense of, I know this character now, I feel that the audience knows him, and playing him, and playing him truthfully, but presenting him with new challenges that then have to change him in different ways, is the most exciting aspect of it. You’ve got his very specific gifts, his intelligence, his treachery, his mischief, his magic, and then seeing him come up against more formidable opponents, the likes of which he has never seen or known. I wish I could tell you what happens, but I can’t.
Along with Tom Hiddleston, a lot of other actors are going to be a part of future Marvel projects, Chris Hemsworth will be back to for Thor: Love and Thunder, which will also see Natalie Portman as Jane Foster who will be worthy to lift Thor’s hammer this time. Will Thor 4 feature Loki? we are not sure about it, but he has to a part of the film. Because that’s what makes Thor and his family special, the bromance of both God of Thunder and God of Mischief.
