If you were left underwhelmed by Ultron, yawning by Yellowjacket and mardy over Malekith than we have some bad news for you – because pretty much the only decent villain Marvel’s superhero universe has produced might be hanging up his shiny gold antlers.

Yes, apparently Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mishief Loki – last seen Kevin Spacey-ing his way to rule over Norse deity realm Asgard in disguise – might be bowing out from the world of superheroes, with his upcoming appearance in Thor: Ragnarok possibly his last. Puny God.

“Thor 3 will be cool because I’ve not done it for four years,” Hiddleston told the Daily Beast. “I love working with Chris [Hemsworth]. This will be my last time out of the gate”.

Un-Loki news for Hiddlestoners everywhere – but when pushed, the Night Manager actor admitted it was just about possible his character could rise again in the two-part Avengers epic Infinity War.

“I don’t know! Honestly, I don’t know!” Hiddleston said.

“They haven’t got their ducks in a row yet. They make it up as they go along”.

Fingers crossed and taking all bets –we could get Loki.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released in October 2017
