Weighing up the future of Loki in the MCU, Tom Hiddleston has conceded that the release of next year’s Thor: Ragnarok may mark his final bow as Marvel’s scheming God of Mischief.
Cut from Avengers: Age of Ultron and effectively ruled out of May’s Captain America: Civil War, Hiddleston’s fan-favorite villain hasn’t been glimpsed on the big screen since the release of Thor: The Dark World three years ago.

That adds an extra weight to the actor’s role in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok. Set for release in late 2017, Hiddleston was first quizzed about the possibility of starring opposite Cate Blanchett, who is all but confirmed to play the part of Hela, Goddess of Death.
“That would be extraordinary.” He added, “I don’t know if she’s definitely doing it, but obviously she’s an extraordinary actress. If she’s up for coming to Asgard, that would be interesting. [Ragnarok] is coming around. I saw Chris Hemsworth in Australia. He lives about an hour away from where we were shooting Kong: Skull Island, and he was full of beans about Thor 3.”
As Hiddleston points out, Australia recently played host to Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island. It’ll also bow in 2017, when the actor could be making his final appearance as Loki.
“Thor 3 will be cool because I’ve not done it for four years,” he explained. “I love working with Chris [Hemsworth]. This will be my last time out of the gate.”
Both Jaimie Alexander and Stellan Skarsgård may not have parts to play in Taika Waititi’s superhero threequel. Even still, with Hiddleston, Hemsworth Mark Ruffalo, Idris Elba and Cate Blanchett all attached, there’s an electrifying excitement surrounding Thor: Ragnarok as it gears up to enter production in June. Expect Waititi’s galactic actioner to debut on November 3, 2017.
