The last episode of the series has aired since the interview was conducted, further revealing where the MCU is heading, as well as the mid-credits announcement that Loki will be returning for another season. Before the announcement was made, Hiddleston was shy when asked to reprise the role, although he spoke about his journey as Loki.
“I’ve learned, at this point, after saying goodbye to the character more than twice, maybe two and a half times, not to make any assumptions,” the actor said. “So it’s not for me to decide. But I love to play with him, and every time I feel like I find new and interesting things about him. So, yes, I’m a temporary passenger on Loki’s trip, but we’ll see. We’ll see where the ride goes now. “
Hiddleston also spoke about Loki’s journey as a character and how he’s changed over the course of the TV show. “Loki is someone who has probably been fooled by the idea that he is charged with a glorious purpose, and that perhaps that purpose has turned out to be fraudulent or meaningless, and perhaps his image or the role he 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 talks about that idea, like, can we change? Can we evolve and in this evolution, is there room to grow? “
The actor also appears to be just as excited as most fans of what the TV show means for the larger MCU storyline that is unfolding. “I think the MCU is even bigger, more courageous, more inclusive than it’s ever been,” Hiddleston explained.
“I think the stories get really exciting,” he added when pushed for more details. “Not that they weren’t before, but I think they understand that public investment is very deep, and they don’t take it for granted for a second. So, yeah, I guess 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 couldn’t give anything too detailed about the future of the franchise, he was more than happy to speculate. “I know there are a lot of, you know, interesting movie titles that have been announced, which gives a sense of where it could go,” he said.
