Loki, the master of mischief, is one of the most beloved characters in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although, from a recent interview with Tom Hiddleston (who plays Loki), many are questioning if the character might be on its way out of the MCU.

Hiddleston has portrayed the character since 2011 in “Thor.” Since then, the character has been in numerous films and TV shows across the MCU. Although, like everything great, things do have to come to an end and after a recent interview with Hiddleston on “The Tonight Show,” some are questioning if this will be sooner than later.


During the interview on “The Tonight Show,” Hiddleston refers to “Loki’s” ending as a “full circle moment,” which to some, sounds like a goodbye.

“If you haven’t seen it, I will not spoil it for you but I will say this, it all comes full circle,” Hiddleston shared. “It’s the conclusion of season two. It’s also the conclusion to seasons one and two. It’s also the conclusion to six films and 12 episodes and 14 years of my life. I was 29 when I was cast, I’m 42 now. it’s been a journey. I do think in the finale there are echoes and resonances of every version of Loki that I’ve played. And I think, without spoiling, the episode is called ‘Glorious Purpose.’ If you remember in the first Avengers film, Loki comes down to Earth. Look straight at Sam Jackson. There’s Nick Fury and I say ‘I’m Loki of Asgard. I’m burdened with glorious purpose.’ And he’s arrogant and he’s hubristic and he’s entitled and is puffed up and he’s going to take over the world.” 

Of course, Hiddleston didn’t come out and actually say it was his final time portraying the character. Although, from this statement, it has made many fans question what is next for the actor and if it includes Loki.
