Tom Hiddleston’s Loki could possibly be the most “loved to hate” villain in the MCU. Regardless of if the audience is supposed to hate him, somehow, someway, they continue to fall more in love with him with each and every appearance.

Hiddleston’s Loki is even getting his own series on Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, because of how popular his character was throughout the MCU films.

He has also been part of the Marvel franchise since the very beginning, meaning it is a bit hard to see anyone replacing him. Though, this may be what Marvel is planning on doing.

According to sources at We Got This Covered, Marvel is set to introduce Kid Loki in the upcoming Loki television series. Now, this is still a rumor and sources have not yet confirmed this by Marvel themselves, this could very well be a likely possibility.

Kid Loki would be one of his shape-shifted forms, and it is rumored that he would even be appearing in Thor: Love and Thunder. If this happens, it is likely that in the Thor film, Loki will somehow get stuck in that kid form, meaning he would remain as Kid Loki, replacing the current Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.

Hiddleston would most likely appear in Thor: Love and Thunder at first, but once he gets stuck in his kid form, Marvel will be taking away the future of Hiddleston’s Loki.

Though we aren’t sure what the future holds for Hiddleston’s Loki in the MCU, we can look forward to the upcoming television series, Lokias Hiddleston just confirmed that pre-production is finally underway.

Tom Hiddleston actually made the announcement himself on his Instagram page yesterday!

Would you be okay with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki disappearing and seeing more of Kid Loki? Or would you rather see Hiddleston stay in his role in the future MCU? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
