Now, it hardly needs to be said that Tom Hiddleston is awesome - especially when whatever he's up to has anything to with Loki.

After all, the British actor pretty much stole the show in both Thor and Thor: The Dark World, and near enough did the same in The Avengers - all through sheer force of charismatic, classically trained British acting awesomeness.

Now, though, Hiddleston might just be channeling his Trickster God counterpart - as it turns out he may just have spoiled some key details of Thor: Ragnarok, due on our screens in 2017.

The strange part, though? He did it way back in November...last year.

"That's just how I roll..."
"That's just how I roll..."

Speaking to Movieweb in 2013, Hiddleston revealed his thoughts on Ragnarok, and in the process may just have revealed that Loki is set to have significant role to play in both the film, and the extended MCU beyond:

"I think there are very interesting things that happen. In the mythology, when you get into Ragnarok, which is the "end of all things", it's not the end of the world...It's the end of time, and the universe, and space. And I think, if I am correct...Loki essentially, sets that in motion. And his motivation for doing so is intriguing and he almost becomes the incarnation of chaos, in a way...So I think that can be quite new."

Which certainly seems to suggest that not only will Thor: Ragnarok cause the end of "time, and the universe, and space," but that Loki will be a key part of that happening.

"Just give me a chance..."
"Just give me a chance..."

What's more, it seems we might just possibly be seeing an addition to the cast, in the form of a key character from Norse Mythology:

" In the myth, he has a wife called Sigyn who protects him from a poison serpent who is dripping venom into his mouth. And she has a bowl over his mouth and of course the bowl keeps filling up and she has to empty it, and so his damnation could be interesting. I don't know...I mean, Loki is a character who's existed in popular consciousness for 3,000 years, so there are many, many iterations I could explore...It's just a question of whether audiences would want to see him again."

Now, that line about "many, many iterations" suggests that Hiddleston could be speculating wildly - or pulling our legs - but if anyone spots a casting sheet for a character named Sigyn, you know who to thank for the heads up...

Loki himself.

What do you guys think, though?
