Loki star Tom Hiddleston has weighed in on the possibility of a third season of the acclaimed Disney+ series, while also name-dropping some characters he'd like to see the God of Stories face-off with...

The second season of Marvel Studios' Loki appeared to give the former villain a pretty definitive ending by allowing him to fulfil his "Glorious Purpose" and claim a throne... even if it wasn't the one he had originally envisioned.

After deciding to, for all intents and purposes, sacrifice himself by destroying the Temporal Loom and use his magic to gather all the loose timelines together, Loki essentially transformed into a version of Yggdrasil, the World Tree from Norse mythology.

It's implied that "God Loki" must sit here for eternity to ensure that his friends and everyone else can live in peace on the various timelines, but will this be the last we see of the character?

“I truthfully don’t know," star Tom Hiddleston told Variety when quizzed about a potential third season at last night's Disney+/Hulu event. "To go from this lost, broken soul in Asgard, and be given a second chance and learn so much about life that he actually gives himself to protect other people, has been such an honor.”

Hiddleston was also asked which characters he'd most like to see the God of Mischief face-off with if he were to return, and it sounds like Hugh Jackman's Wolverine might be top of the list.

Last year, executive producer Kevin Wright suggested that plans may already be in place for Loki's return.

"I speak for myself and not Marvel, but I am certainly pitching ideas of where I could see certain stories going," he teased." I think there are a lot of stories you can tell at the TVA, and we are just scratching the surface on that. I would love to see more stories with Loki, and I think Tom would continue to play this character until he is Richard E. Grant's Classic Loki [laughs]. But I don't think that means you need to have this story every year or every two years. It's about doing it when we have a good story to tell. I would love to keep working with these filmmakers."

"We built a really awesome team, and if Loki is Breaking Bad, maybe there's a way for this team to keep telling stories with our version of Better Call Saul — whether that's with Sylvie, with the TVA, or with a new Loki," he added. "But we only want to do that if we have the right story and it can be just as fulfilling as this one. After all, you can't be the God of Stories if you're not going to tell more stories."

Loki season 2 "promises new excitement as it thrusts the infamous God of Mischief into a new set of adventures with the TVA."

The series stars Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Rafael Casal, Tara Strong, Kate Dickie, Liz Carr, Neil Ellice, with Jonathan Majors, Ke Huy Quan and Owen Wilson.

Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Dan Deleeuw and Kasra Farahani directed all six episodes. The head writer is Eric Martin. Kevin Feige, Stephen Broussard, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kevin R. Wright, Tom Hiddleston, Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Eric Martin and Michael Waldron are the executive producers, with Trevor Waterson serving as co-executive producer.

All six episodes of Loki season 2 are now streaming on Disney+.

Looking is not Breaking Bad.
MarvelousMarty - 4/6/2024, 10:10 AM
@MarvelousMarty - loki
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 10:27 AM
@MarvelousMarty -

It's a comparison. Who said it literally was?
Apophis71 - 4/6/2024, 10:43 AM
@MarvelousMarty - He isn't saying it is the same...

...in so many ways it so obviously isn't in terms of tone, subject matter and genre that is daft to think he was regardless opinions on each in terms of quality. He's just giving an example of a show that did well and had it's own spinoff that everyone likely knows of even if not seen it...

...I mean he could have said if Loki was Dallas they could have their own Knots Landing but who under 30 would know what those shows were?...

...or could have said if Loki was JAG they could have their own NCIS but how many remember the WAY more succesfull spinoff came from JAG let alone if you would want to correlate your show with the original show.
MarvelousMarty - 4/6/2024, 1:46 PM
@Apophis71 - It's no Dallas either.
MarvelousMarty - 4/6/2024, 1:47 PM
@DrReedRichards - I wasn't talking literally, I was talking in terms of quality.
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 2:47 PM
@MarvelousMarty -

I know you weren't, I just wanted you to openly admit your elitism, and that seeing Loki and Breaking Bad in the same sentence was what triggered your need to clarify what was already obvious.

So thank you.
Apophis71 - 4/6/2024, 3:06 PM
@MarvelousMarty - Matter of opinion in terms of quality, hated Dallas even if it was quantifiably good by whatever metric, that was never the point and you know it but thanks for proving you were acting like a smartass :D.

Thanks for playing into it however :)

Loki is the best mini series in the MCU. The show had everything and with a consummate performance from Tom, the character was pushed to new and unprecedented heights. The show ended on a finite note with season 2, therefore a third season isn’t necessary. I’m guessing Loki will play a key role in secret wars given the scope of that story. Always delightful when Loki appears onscreen.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 10:21 AM
@TheMetaMan - the show was so good overall (though I do think I preferred S1 to 2 overall) and to think my dumb ass thought it was unnecessary since I felt EG gave Loki a good ending

Just goes to show to not write anything off hastily.
bkmeijer1 - 4/6/2024, 10:46 AM
@TheVisionary25 - same here. No way did I expect the show to establish him as such an important part of the multiverse. And it was a good journey too
TheMetaMan - 4/6/2024, 10:50 AM
@TheVisionary25 - My sentiments exactly. I thought Loki as a tv series wouldn’t fly simply because his arc ended. Oh how wrong was I. I loved every minute of the show. When the MCU get it right, THEY GET IT RIGHT!!
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 10:19 AM
Loki might have one of , if not the best arc in the MCU for the reasons that Hiddleston stated above…

He finally found his glorious purpose , just not the one he intended.

No need for a S3 since the show ended on a satisfactory note imo but I do think there is no way we don’t seem him in Secret Wars if not Avengers 5 aswell…

However, it might be for the last time though for Hiddleston.
Apophis71 - 4/6/2024, 10:51 AM
@TheVisionary25 - Yeh I don't think I would want a third LOKI season, but wouldn't be against a spinoff following some of the remaining TVA characters. Be that a general TVA show or more specific like a Mobius or Sylvie series, but ONLY if and when they have a good story to tell with a clear direction leading to a predetermined end point, not just a sound premise then make it up as you go along, lol.

DO want to know what comes next for Hiddleston's Loki however, even if that is JUST in Secret Wars or another Thor film...

...not that I am a big fan of the Thor franchise, like Ragnarok even if they butchered the source story but the rest were middling to bad for me.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 10:58 AM
@Apophis71 - fair enough

With the exception of the mediocre Dark World , I like the Thor films (even Love & Thunder though it has its flaws haha).
Apophis71 - 4/6/2024, 12:20 PM
@TheVisionary25 - My oldest is a HUGE fan of them so get it and not one to say films ARE bad in a more general sense just how they were for me.

Dark World remains in my bottom three MCU films of all time so by MCU standards at least bad for me.

The first was too predictable story wise for my tastes so although the first act was solid once they got to Earth wasn't into it and the 4th wasn't AS bad as some make out but was below average for the MCU at least, down in my personal bottom third of the MCU, and wasn't keen even if I enjoyed parts of it.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 12:22 PM
@Apophis71 - fair enough

To each their own

I know that sub franchise tends to be pretty divisive.
STINGRAY - 4/6/2024, 10:21 AM
RE; "LOKI ...Facing Off Against Hugh Jackman's Wolverine"

I think this would go sort of along the same lines as 'Puny God' Loki`s encounter with The Hulk...

Except in this set-to, Loki would start to dismiss Logan as a 'troll', 'freak' or whatever...
..and one 'SNIKT!' later, Loki would be sliced, diced, and in pieces.
(and YES; with an awe-struck dumb look on his face)
Nomis929 - 4/6/2024, 10:24 AM
The Finale for season two was a perfect ending.

Another season would just be dragging it. It had its time. Ended perfectly.
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 10:30 AM
Leave it be. The show ended incredibly, especially when you consider the burden it dragged with having to justify Majors' removal from the MCU. Let him be the MCU's Molecule Man in the upcoming Secret Wars, but not need to drag it out and nullify such a great ending.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 10:38 AM
@DrReedRichards - yep

Though I wouldn’t mind seeing characters like Sylvie ,Mobius or O.B again.
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 10:41 AM
@TheVisionary25 -

I wouldn't mind a TVA show either. The team had a great dynamic in tha last episodes, with Loki trying to regroup them. But as for Loki himself, and I'd say that include Sylvie as well, that character's and his variants' stories ended beautifully.
bkmeijer1 - 4/6/2024, 10:45 AM
@DrReedRichards - that's definitely the route I can see them take it in. I doubt we'll see Molecule Man, so they'll give his role in the story to others. The Molecule Man-bomb can be a Wanda-bomb, and the Molecule Man-battery can be a Loki-battery.
TheMetaMan - 4/6/2024, 10:48 AM
@DrReedRichards - Ironically we are getting a tva show or at least another opportunity to explore the concept of the TVA in Deadpool 3.
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 10:57 AM
@TheMetaMan -

Eh, without Mobius or any of the TVA cast? It's just not the same.
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 10:58 AM
@bkmeijer1 -

Wanda-bomb is a concept I was exploring with @garu months ago, I can definitely see them workinng her Chaos magic into something more targetted with its destructive potential.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 11:01 AM
@DrReedRichards - I am interested in Paradox and his role

I guess he’ll be Wade’s Mobius.

User Comment Image

Mobius and Sylvie left but it could be cool if we get a Hunter B-15 or OB cameo
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 11:05 AM
@TheVisionary25 -

More OB is always a good thing, but I wouldn't complain for B-15 either, or even Brad and Casey. The team's chemistry was almost AoS-like in s2.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 11:08 AM
@DrReedRichards - yep me too

Though didn’t Brad die?.
DrReedRichards - 4/6/2024, 11:09 AM
@TheVisionary25 -

It was left open-ended, I think. Or at least that's how I took it, after he pruned Ravonna and Sylvie let him go off her control.
TheMetaMan - 4/6/2024, 11:13 AM
@DrReedRichards - I like it. It shows how versatile and multifaceted the TVA organisation is. I like the idea that almost every character from the MCU or beyond the multiverse has a different experience with the TVA. Wade’s exposure is totally different to Loki’s.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 11:30 AM
@DrReedRichards - I see

I think Ravonna’s fate was left open ended too in the Void

We could see her too
bkmeijer1 - 4/6/2024, 12:10 PM
@DrReedRichards - maybe I even got it from you two, because I did read about that idea somewhere on here. It's exactly the kind of gutpunch the MCU has lacked since Hakweye and Black Widow on Vormir imo
Apophis71 - 4/6/2024, 12:24 PM
@TheVisionary25 - He will be made out to be Wade's Morbius at least but a decent chance he is a rogue agent that has turned a corner of the TVA into a fake HQ for it with nefarious purposes but we'll see.
TheVisionary25 - 4/6/2024, 12:25 PM
@Apophis71 - could see that.
SonOfAGif - 4/6/2024, 10:31 AM
I do think he is right with a season 3 being dedicated to a different Loki. I think Sylvie and Kid Loki would work. Especially if they are on a specific mission.
bkmeijer1 - 4/6/2024, 10:48 AM
@SonOfAGif - if they're continueing anybody's story, I think a special presentation might fit better. Regardless of who or what (ie the TVA) that is.
SonOfAGif - 4/6/2024, 11:58 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Well we are getting what I believe is a continuation of the TVA in Deadpool 3. But we don't know if this is the same TVA from Loki or alternate reality of them. I believe it's the same TVA but with a different department. Sort of like cops. Each TVA department has a designated universe they deal with but they ultimately all exist in the same realm.
