Tom Hiddleston had to be tightlipped about his future as Loki and the actor has finally revealed how long he has known about the upcoming miniseries.
During an interview with MTV News’ Personal Space, Tom Hiddleston spoke at length about his role as Loki and his involvement with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While talking about Avengers: Infinity War and Loki’s death in the film Tom Hiddleston was directly asked how long he knew about the upcoming Loki series. He revealed that he knew about it roughly a month and a half before the release of Avengers: Infinity War:
“I knew about six weeks before the worldwide release of Avengers: Infinity War. Which meant I had to go and do press for Avengers: Infinity War going, ‘Yup, that’s it guys.’”
You can see the full interview with Tom Hiddleston below:
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki was among the first casualties in Avengers: Infinity War. After a failed attempt to assassinate Josh Brolin’s Thanos, the Mad Titan choked Loki to death. The character would eventually return in Avengers: Endgame in the 2012 timeline where he stole the Cosmic Cube from the Avengers before making his escape. The upcoming Loki series will reportedly be focusing on this version of Loki.
