Tom Hiddleston teases fans in preparation for the upcoming Loki TV spin-off series.
Hiddleston, who plays the character of the mischievous Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has proven to be so popular among fans that he received his own show. Little has been revealed about what the show will be about and who will be in it, but Hiddleston has promised fans one thing: “Loki. More stories to tell. More mischief to make. More to come.”

Despite now having his own show, Hiddleston recently revealed that Loki was actually supposed to be killed off in Thor: The Dark World, but the producers decided against it.
“Loki’s death on Svartalfheim was written as a death, and I would say Chris [Hemsworth] and I played that scene for real,” he revealed. “That was meant to be that he redeemed himself. He helped save his brother, he helped save Jane Foster, but that he, in the process, sacrificed himself.
“It was part of the original pitch and in test screenings, the audience didn’t accept it. They said, ‘He’s obviously coming back, that didn’t really happen’. And there was a very strange and almost unanimous resistance to it,” he continued.
He added: “They decided that wasn’t the end.”
