Tom Hiddleston as Loki was first introduced in the 2011 flick, Thor. Since then, Loki has gone through an amazing journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The God of Mischief’s 12-year journey in the MCU seemingly concluded with Loki season 2 finale.

Despite starting out as a villain, Loki has become an important figure over the years. In fact, in the season 2 finale, Loki has seemingly become the God of Stories. Many argue that instead of God of Stories, Thor’s younger brother is actually tasked with the duty of monitoring various realities. Either way, as of now, it’s undoubtedly a farewell to one of the most iconic characters in the MCU.

Tom Hiddleston Reveals the Most Emotional Scene for him in Loki Season 2

Tom Hiddleston portrayed Loki for more than a decade. Keeping that in mind, it’s only obvious that the actor was emotional during the season 2 finale. After all, the finale hinted at Loki never returning to the MCU again.

With that being said, Hiddleston recently confessed in an interview with BBC Radio 1 that he couldn’t hold back his tears while filming the God of Stories sequence in the series.

I would say the most tears were shed, funnily enough, on that big chair at the end. It was really interesting, there was a take where I couldn’t help it, it all just sort of came tumbling out and the next take was actually much more interesting. Because I sort of had the experience of having felt it and then it was just all there. I don’t know it’s a hard thing to describe. As a performer, I didn’t have to reach for anything because I felt more open somehow, it was there.

While Tom Hiddleston took some time to explain what he felt, it was clear from his expression that the role of Loki was very close to his heart. Even post Avengers: Endgame, Loki is undoubtedly one of the few good things that came out of the MCU.

While the story could have been stretched for more than two seasons, it wouldn’t do justice to the character to unnecessarily ruin a near-perfect ending.

Is Tom Hiddleston’s Loki the God of Stories?

In Marvel Comics, Loki did assume the role of God of Stories. However, it’s unclear whether Loki has assumed that title in the MCU or not. Sure, his magic abilities did fuse with All-Seeing Eye allowing him to manipulate stories within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But the fact that Loki has to sit in a chair in the cosmic void pushes the narrative that he has become the custodian of the multiverse. Moreover, in the future other powerful characters can take over Loki’s place and sit on the chair.

All things considered, Loki’s new title is yet to be confirmed by the MCU. Fans may get a clear picture of Loki’s role in the MCU as we get closer to the end of the Multiverse saga.
