Tom Hiddleston Explains The Hidden Thor Movie Reference In Loki Season 2 Finale

The God of Mischief’s final line has a long history in the MCU.

Tom Hiddleston recently told Vanity Fair that his last line in ‘Loki’ Season 2 was a nod to his character’s first time on screen. He explained:

“And I remembered the end of the first ‘Thor’ film, and how emotional that felt and I just suddenly thought, that’s what he should say—but it should mean something completely different.”

The God of Mischief tried to destroy all the Jotuns for Odin’s favor in the first film. He ended up hanging from the Bifrost’s edge after a fight with his brother. Hiddleston recalled:

“Loki’s last line in ‘Thor,’ directed by Kenneth Branagh, is, ‘I could have done it, Father. I could have done it for you, for all of us.’ And of course, his effort to gain his father’s pride has been misguided and ill thought-out.”

Loki’s motives went through a change in the 2021 show. He sacrificed himself to save his friends and the Multiverse in the final episode:

“And then at the end of ‘Loki’ Season 2, 14 years later, he turns to Mobius and Sylvie and says, ‘I know what I want. I know what kind of god I need to be. For you. For all of us.’ It felt very resonant somehow. I hope the audience picked up on that.”

The Actor Was In The Production Team

‘Loki’ Season 2 marked nearly fifteen years of the God of Mischief’s screentime. Tom Hiddleston also joined the series’ production team as an executive producer, along with Kevin Feige, Victoria Alonso, Louis D’Esposito, and Kate Herron.

The actor was in the room when the overall story and the finale were developed. He talked about his role by saying:

“Honestly, it was such an honor, and I loved it. I loved the extra imagining and problem-solving.”

His words continued:

“I was invited into the writer’s room really early, season one, even earlier on season two. And to borrow the words from Lin-Manuel Miranda, to be in the room where it happens, and to sit around the table and break story and crunch through the great creative ‘what if’ questions—what if Loki did this? What if Mobius did that? What if they couldn’t find Sylvie? What if the TVA ran on an energy source, and it wasn’t energy, it was time?”

Loki’s time in the MCU seemingly ended with the Disney+ show. But Hiddleston’s previous statements hint at a possible return in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’
