Will Loki and Thor Ever Meet Again? Tom Hiddleston Pitches His Idea For The Reunion
How would the brotherly reunion go? 'Confusing', according to the Loki star.
- The reunion of Loki and Thor has been in the rumor mill for a while now.
- Marvel employees don't rule out the possibility that the adopted brothers will find their way back to each other.
- And Tom Hiddleston is not closing the door on such a development either.
- The actor told ComicBook.com that if the reunion were to happen, it would be extremely confusing because both brothers have changed so much, but remain a family with their preconceived notions of each other.
'I assure you, brother... the Sun will shine on us again,' Loki told Thor just before Thanos killed him in Infinity War.
This was the moment that sent the MCU fandom into a frenzy of anger and sadness, and it was the moment that triggered Thor's journey of grief that we saw in the last Avengers. But as Loki said, there is hope for the adopted brothers to find their way back to each other.
Even though the Earth-616 Loki is dead, we have another variant that is alive. This is the TV show version of Loki, who has undergone a major transformation of his own, from the self-centered God of Mischief to the God of Stories, holding the entire multiverse in his hands.
And this gives hope that one day the Asgardian brothers will be reunited, which, according to the Marvel employees, is not off the cards.
'That would always be my hope, is that somewhere, somewhere down the line, somebody gets to tell that story,' Loki's executive producer recently shared with ComicBook.com.
Tom Hiddleston weighs in
When asked by the host of the Phase Zero podcast about the possibility of a brotherly reunion and how it would go, Tom Hiddleston didn't rule it out either.
The Loki actor said that both brothers have changed so much in the years and adventures they've been apart that the dynamic between them would be 'of extreme surprise and confusion.'
'I think initially it would be really confusing, but also they'd been apart for a long time and no doubt they've been objects in each other's mind,' Hiddleston said.
Thor lost his brother about 7 years ago in the MCU timeline, but the last he saw of this variant was 13 years ago. For Loki, it has been a much longer time. Ever since he mastered time-slipping, he has been trying to save the TVA and the multiverse for literally centuries.
'I think both Thor and Loki have had to excavate and analyze the past and who they feel they really are and what they really want.' Hiddleston said. 'But what's interesting about family as well is sometimes it will be difficult to let go of the preconception of who they used to be. Loki might be expecting Thor to behave in a certain way, or be a certain way. Thor might be expecting Loki to be a certain way.'
It does sound puzzling and awkward. But that's what we love about moments like this: gods and superheroes acting like average people with their feelings and emotions.
There's no doubt that the reunion between the new people that Thor and Loki have become would be a thrilling one. For me. For you. For all of us.
