Around this time last year, when Thor: The Dark World was about to hit theaters, Tom Hiddleston took part in an overlooked interview with MovieWeb where the British 'Loki' actor had discussed the possibility of a third film as well as the direction it might take. It's no secret Thor: Ragnarok is now coming in 2017, but in the aforementioned interview, Hiddleston had hinted that his fourth (or fifth) turn as the God of Mischief would indeed be exploring the end of all things.
"I think there are very interesting things that happen," he said of the Ragnarok storyline. "In the mythology, when you get into Ragnarok, which is the 'end of all things', it's not the end of the world...It's the end of time, and the universe, and space. And I think, if I am correct...Loki essentially, sets that in motion. A
nd his motivation for doing so is intriguing and he almost becomes the incarnation of chaos, in a way...So I think that can be quite new." He then continued, hinting at the inclusion of Sigyn, Loki's wife in the comic books. "In the myth, he has a wife called Sigyn who protects him from a poison serpent who is dripping venom into his mouth. And she has a bowl over his mouth and of course the bowl keeps filling up and she has to empty it, and so his damnation could be interesting. I don't know...I mean, Loki is a character who's existed in popular consciousness for 3,000 years, so there are many, many iterations I could explore...It's just a question of whether audiences would want to see him again." What do you think?
Considering the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron is said to set up Chris Hemsworth's third solo outing as the God of Thunder, we may get an early indication of how the "end of all things" will come into play before Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters on July 28, 2017. One thing we can definitely expect in the Marvel threequel, as co-writer Christopher Yost reassures, is many character deaths. "Ragnarok is the end of all things," said Yost on Twitter. "What are we supposed to do, let people live?!"
