However he is set to appear as the villainous Loki in his upcoming spin-off series, which sees him travel through time and alter human history after stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Hiddleston’s Loki has been one of the longest-running recurring characters in Marvel’s connected film universe, starting with Thor in 2011.
The new Loki series, and its six episodes, is expected to be released on Disney+ in May 2021.
In July it was also reported that Tom Hiddleston and his co-star Zawe Ashton have ‘moved in together’ after months of romance rumours.
The pair were now said to be living together in Atlanta, Georgia after they grew close while starring together in the West End production of Betrayal in London last year.

Sources close to the duo claim The Night Manager star, 39, and the actress, 35, are ‘very well suited and enjoy the quieter side of life’ – and may even spend the rest of the year in the US.
An insider told The Sun: ‘Tom and Zawe have stayed quiet about their relationship but she has spent the last few weeks with him in the US.
‘They are very well suited and enjoy the quieter side of life away from the glitz and glamour of the showbiz world.
‘Their lives are typically very busy, so spending time together while not working has been something they have both embraced. Tom has made a home in Atlanta during lockdown and he is expecting to spend the rest of the year there.
MailOnline contacted representatives for Tom and Zawe for comment at the time.
