- Tom Hiddleston clarifies his comments on his future in the MCU after the Loki season 2 finale in an interview with Cinemablend.
- Hiddleston expresses satisfaction with the finale, as it echoes the themes of the entire journey, exploring Loki’s ideas of belonging, identity, and purpose.

While Hiddleston made it sound like this was the end for him in the MCU, the actor has now come out to clarify in an interview with Cinemablend what he actually meant in regards to his involvement with the franchise after the Loki season 2 finale:
Well, yes, I suppose what I meant… Perhaps what I should clarify is that I feel very satisfied with the finale of Season 2, because it seems to contain echoes and resonances of the entire journey. It’s almost like a piece of music, where in that last episode, you hear strains of, you know, whether it’s in lines of dialogue, we are circling the same themes that I’ve always circled with Loki. But he’s a character who is engaged with ideas of belonging, ideas of identity, ideas of purpose. That’s who he was at the very foot at the beginning in the first Thor film, wondering where he belonged, which family he belonged to, wondering what his role was in all of this. Thor was destined to be king of Asgard. And who am I? Who is Loki? And I’ve been asking that question the whole way. Like, who does Loki think he is? Who’s he think he is, and who is he really? And then through the series, in Season 1 and Season 2, I think the confrontation with Mobius and the mirror of Sylvie is another excavation, we go deeper into those ideas.
