Alas, the Loki / Thor brotherhood is no more, because Loki Star Tom Hiddleston confirms God of Mischief won’t appear alongside God of Thunder in upcoming MCU sequel Thor: Love and Thunder. There had been speculation that, given that there is now an alternate version of Loki walking around and most importantly not having passed away, he might appear to some extent, but according to Hiddleston this is unfortunately not the case.
“We talked about the Thor films as a family saga, and the diametrical opposition between Thor and Loki and duality and antagonism being a book that maybe should stay closed for now. We have explored as much as possible these two brothers. “
The relationship between belligerent brothers Thor and Loki has been at the heart of both characters since their very beginning with the first. Thor in 2011. The hilarious back-and-forths, constant double crossovers, and multiple death pretenses turned out to be the MCU’s strengths, their bond culminating when Loki attempted to save his brother’s life before he went. being assassinated by the Mad Titan. , Thanos. The journey of the two Asgardian royalty has been long and extremely entertaining, and Hiddleston is right that it may be time for them to go it alone.
Additionally, Hiddleston explains that it wouldn’t make sense for the Loki who is now alive and exploring the multiverse, considering this to be a much older version of the character anyway. “This Loki is the Loki who lost the Battle of New York at the end of the first Avengers movie. This is the Loki who came through the history of that first Avengers movie,” Hiddleston previously explained. “He arrived on Earth, he had the Tesseract, he was captured by SHIELD and jailed and suffered extensive interrogation by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, and he invites an alien army to attack the city of Manhattan and is defeated by the assembled Avengers. “
The God of Mischief and Marvel fan favorite is more than ready to star solo in the upcoming Disney + series, Loki, which will air on the streaming platform on June 9, 2021 and will consist of six episodes. It’s part of Phase Four of the MCU, and a second season is already in development.
Loki picks up with the mischievous Asgardian after stealing the Tesseract during the events of 2019 Avengers: Endgame. Presenting the audience with an alternate version of Loki, he is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA), a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and oversees the timeline. They give Loki a choice: to face the erasure of existence due to being a “time variant,” or to help set the timeline and stop a bigger threat. Loki finds himself trapped in his own crime thriller, traveling through time and altering human history.
Created by Michael Waldron and starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Tara Strong and Owen Wilson alongside Tom Hiddleston, the series is sure to be another smash hit for Marvel and Disney.
Meanwhile, the Loki-less Thor: Love and Thunder is now set to hit theaters on February 11, 2022. Hiddleston’s comments come to us thanks to an interview he did with Empire (by https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a36656652/loki-thor-love-and-thunder-tom-hiddleston/|Digital Spy}.
