Season 2 finale of Disney+ series Loki was one wild rollercoaster, but will it also mark the last time we see Tom Hiddleston in this role? The British actor recently bid an emotional farewell to his iconic Marvel character, casting a shadow of doubt over his future in the MCU.

Following the end of the SAG-AFTRA strike, Hiddleston set down with Jimmy Fallon to discuss the last episode of Loki and hinted he’s ready to walk away from this character.

“It’s the conclusion to Seasons 1 and 2, and it’s also the conclusion to six films and 12 episodes and 14 years of my life. 14 years. I was 29 when I was cast, I’m 42 now. It’s been a journey. In the finale, there are echoes and resonances of every version of Loki I’ve played,” said the British actor.

Hiddleston became a household name after Kenneth Branagh cast him as Loki in the first Thor movie from 2011. In the years to come, his God of Mischief went on to become one of the most iconic Marvel villains following his appearance in The Avengers.

Hiddleston continued his journey as God of Mischief in the Disney+ series Loki, which was met with positive reviews and also starred Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Jonathan Majors, Richard E. Grant, and Ke Huy Quan.
