Tom Hiddleston Isn't Sure If He'll Ever Play Loki Again
If there is one breakout character in the MCU, it's Loki (with the possible exception of Tony Stark), so naturally, everyone just assumed the supervillain/antihero would show up in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and maybe more. But Tom Hiddleston isn't technically attached to any more Marvel movies yet, and he himself stated that he had no idea if he would ever play Loki again.

In a new interview with Coming Soon, when asked if Loki would go full-on supervillain now that his mother is dead and he has usurped Odin, Hiddleston responded,

Opening quote
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!
Closing quote


He explicitly states that he doesn't know "if" he's ever going to play Loki again, although he may just be saying that to keep spoilers under wraps. Loki is such an integral part of the Thor mythology, and Hiddleston's popularity as an actor has been such a boon to the MCU, we can't imagine that we would never see Loki again after what essentially amounts to a cliffhanger.

That being said, Hiddleston's star is rising and Marvel is notoriously cheap, so there's a chance that there will be a hitch in negotiations. When Thor: The Dark World came out, Kevin Feige said Marvel "certainly has ideas of where we would like that to go [with Loki, but] we have to see how this one does and then go from there." Although reports have come out since then claiming that Loki would star in Ragnarok and Infinity War, it doesn't sound like a sure thing.

Thor: Ragnarok comes out in theaters on November 3, 2017, while Avengers: Infinity War pt 1 is slated for May 4, 2018, followed by pt 2 on May 3, 2019.
