Nothing is ever set in stone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe until the cameras start rolling, but this latest bit of news may be upsetting for Loki fans: According to Tom Hiddleston, "Thor: Ragnarok" may feature the last onscreen appearance of the villain.

Hiddleston hinted that his days as the meddlesome god were numbered in an interview with The Daily Beast, in which he discussed a bunch of upcoming projects. According to the actor, the third installment in the "Thor" franchise may be its last -- and will feature Loki's final bow, too.

"'Thor 3' will be cool because I've not done it for four years," Hiddleston told the site of starting production on the threequel, which begins shooting in June. "I love working with Chris [Hemsworth]. This will be my last time out of the gate."

That seems like a pretty definitive declaration, though of course, the actor later qualified those remarks. When asked if that meant that he would not pop up in "Avengers: Infinity War," Hiddleston admitted that even current members of the MCU are not privy to all the intel about upcoming projects.

"I don't know! Honestly, I don't know," he told the Beast. "They haven't got their ducks in a row yet. They make it up as they go along."

Here's hoping the Marvel head honchos can find a way to make up a part for Hiddleston, too.

In the meantime, catch Loki while you can when "Thor: Ragnarok" opens on November 3, 2017.
