We already knew that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki would be back for Thor 3, given the cliffhanger ending to Thor: The Dark World, and it seems the God of Mischief will also have a role to play in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, Digital Spy is reporting.
Loki’s inclusion in Infinity War isn’t too surprising given that he has one of the Infinity Stones that the Mad Titan Thanos will need to acquire for the Infinity Gauntlet, and of course the two villains have unfinished business stemming from The Avengers.
UPDATE: It seems that Loki will also appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron alongside Thor and Heimdall, with Idris Elba stating to the Telegraph that he has shot a scene with Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston for the upcoming sequel.
Thor: Ragnarok is set for release on July 28th 2017, with Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 opening on May 4th 2018 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 hitting screens on May 3rd 2019.
