Tom Hiddleston, who starred in “Loki,” announced to Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” that he was ending his 14-year association with Marvel after the show’s Season 2 conclusion.
Hiddleston was Fallon’s first actor guest, discussing one of his major projects after the SAG-AFTRA strike ended.
Hiddleston was careful not to reveal too much, telling Fallon, “If you haven’t seen it, I will not spoil it for you, but I will say this: It all comes full circle.”
“It’s the conclusion to Season 2 … It’s also the conclusion to six films, and 12 episodes, and 14 years of my life,” Hiddleston said.
At 29, Hiddleston revealed that he was first portrayed as the antagonist, but at 42, he gradually evolved into an antihero, if not a hero. “It’s been an adventure,” stated Hiddleston. “I believe there are echoes and resonances of all the Loki roles I’ve played in the finale.” He gestured to the final episode’s title, “Glorious Purpose.”
On whether “Loki” Season 2 sets up other Marvel Cinematic Universe projects like “Deadpool 3” or “Avengers: Secret Wars,” Hiddleston played coy, dodging the question. Fallon also asked if Loki could use his time-slipping abilities to go find Tony Stark/Iron Man.
This man. Here we have investigative journalism at its finest, remarked Hiddleston. He said carefully, “Technically, time-slipping affords Loki some fascinating plays he can make. He can move from the past, present, and future, I guess. While I am aware of my ability to time-travel, I am unaware of other characters’ abilities. Speaking for myself, Loki has returned after dying a few times and said, “I’m still here.” I’m not sure that passing away is always… Death, after all, is open for debate as an existential issue. That’s all I have to say about it without spoiling anything for anyone
