Is Tom Hiddleston implying that he may never be back to play Loki again?
In a recent interview with Coming Soon, Hiddleston spoke of the role that he relishes as if there is doubt as to whether or not he might even step into mother’s drapes to play it again.
Avengers ramrob Joss Whedon has spoken highly of Hiddleston’s ability to weave a multi-layered character out of Loki. When asked whether he hoped to continue along that vein or to make Loki a full-blown villain, Hiddleston replied:
“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!”
Tom Hiddleston is currently promoting his latest film, Crimson Peak, which is a horror flick. But he also has Kong: Skull Island coming up.

So even if Hiddleston ends up checking out of the Marvel Universe lineup after Thor: Ragnarok, there will still be plenty of opportunities for fans to sink their teeth into the acting talent that he brought to a character that could have been as flat as Loki.
Kong: Skull Island, particularly, has Hiddleston stoked. The film takes on the King Kong legend, which has been tackled in Hollywood many times before.
“[Director] Jordan Vogt-Roberts has a really interesting take on the whole thing, and it’s really new and original. It doffs its cap to the mythology but also takes it into a new place which I hope you will find exciting.”
