Tom Hiddleston on playing Loki in next ‘Thor’ film: ‘I never know if people want to see him again’

Actor suggests his future playing Thor's archenemy may be uncertain

Tom Hiddleston has suggested that his future playing Thor’s archenemy Loki may be uncertain.

Though the actor is expected to return for Thor: Ragnarok, which shoots next year for a November 2017 release, he gave a wavering answer when asked about possible Loki overkill in a new interview.

“I never quite know whether people want to see him again or whether people want to move on,” Hiddleston told MTV News. “I can’t really take the temperature on it. It’s so difficult because it feels like if it ever happened again, I would try not to repeat myself, I would try something new.”

“I never want to feel like I’m retracing the same steps,” the actor continued. “I guess it’s like any actor who plays a character over and over again. I wonder what it’s like for the guys who play The Avengers. They feel the same thing – each time they want to take it on, take it in a new direction.”

Hiddleston made his debut as Loki in the original 2011 Thor film and reprised the role for 2012’s The Avengers and 2013’s Thor: The Dark World. The actor will next be seen in Crimson Peak, a haunted house film from Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro which opens in UK cinemas on October 16. Watch the trailer below.
