“Thor” and “High-Rise” actor Tom Hiddleston has seemingly pulled back a bit on comments about giving up his role as Loki in further films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hiddleston’s baddie, easily the most well-regarded villain of the MCU to date, will make his fourth appearance on screen in next year’s “Thor: Ragnarok”. Last month the actor was widely quoted in an interview saying the appearance would be his “last time out of the gate” in the MCU.
Now he has given multiple interviews retracting the comment and sets the record straight. First up he tells The NY Daily News:
“Truthfully, I do actually know at the moment how many more times I’m going to play Loki, but I’m not going to tell you. It’s not personal, it’s just keeping it fresh for all paying customers to enjoy their films. And, also, I’m the god of mischief so it’s my predisposition to play games.”
Indeed, he even tells Hypable that he’s not goign to be forthcoming about his role in “Thor: Ragnarok”:
“When it comes to my relationship with Marvel, whenever I have said something it usually becomes expanded and misshapen and it then has no bearing to what I originally said at all. I have a pretty good sense of what my future with Marvel is but I don’t think it’s worth telling anyone because it may change. They are very smart over there and like any creative process, they are free to change their minds. Throughout the Marvel universe Loki has changed from movie to movie. Sometimes he’s even changed in the middle of movies in ways you may not even know.”
Taika Waititi helms “Thor: Ragnarok” from a screenplay written by Christopher Yost, Craig Kyle, and Stephany Folsom. That film opens November 3rd 2017.
