When we last saw Loki in Thor: The Dark World, he was sitting on Asgard’s throne disguised as Odin. The God of Mischief was expected to make a cameo appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron, but after that was cut (like much of those strange dream sequences featuring Thor), the villain’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been left up in the air.
Common sense says that we’ll see Tom Hiddleston reprise the role in Thor: Ragnarok, but it turns out that the British actor is still in the dark about his future playing the character. When asked whether or not Loki will be going full on supervillain when he does eventually return, he said:
“You know, I don’t know. I think I won’t be able to help it if I ever play him again, and I just don’t know when that’s gonna happen, if that’s gonna happen. I would never lose his dimension, but it’s so interesting. I’ve talked with Chris Hemsworth, how those characters have changed as we’ve changed. It’s five years ago since I played him for the first time. That’s a long time ago. So who knows what I’ll be cooking up!”
Loki is a complex character, and if he did kill Odin to take his place on the throne, there really isn’t any coming back from that. With Thanos now on the warpath and thirsty for revenge after Loki failed him in The Avengers, you have to believe that even if he for some reason doesn’t show up in Thor: Ragnarok, we’ll be seeing the villain again in Avengers: Infinity War.
