The Marvel mini-series ended its first season, uncovering its titular anti-hero's vulnerable and emotional side. It explored love, compassion, and friendship throughout its six episodes. Now, The English actor promises that ‘Loki’ Season 2 will follow a much unfamiliar version of the god of Mischief than fans may expect due to the final events of the first season.
Redemption can be hard to come by for MCU villains, [e.g., Ultron, Thanos, Agatha, etc.], but for a character like Loki, it’s very much on his mind. According to Tom Hiddleston, that’ll continue to be the case in ‘Loki’ Season 2.
”I understand the audience sees good in Loki — they want him to get past his internal and external obstacles”, Hiddleston told Variety in a recent interview. ”They want him to repair that relationship with his brother and step into the hero that he can be”
”He realizes, ‘Actually, I can choose my path and choose to do the right thing. Or I choose, at least, not to repeat the same old tricks that I repeated over and over in a cycle of trust and betrayal’ Hiddleston explained. ‘It’s exciting to retain all the characteristics that make Loki, Loki, and at the same time to play slightly different music within him.’
Indeed, Marvel buffs will have to wait for the premiere of ‘Loki’ Season 2 before they get to see where the character’s newfound philosophy on life takes him next.
