# Tom Hiddleston Discusses the Possibilities of an MCU Comeback for Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) continues to expand its horizons, the season two finale of “Loki” has left fans speculating about the potential return of some of their favorite characters, including Robert Downey Jr.’s legendary portrayal of Iron Man/Tony Stark. Recently, Loki himself, actor Tom Hiddleston, addressed these rumors and the possibilities that lie ahead for the MCU.
## Loki’s Journey and the Door to Endless Possibilities
In a conversation with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Hiddleston reflected on the fate of his character, saying, “Speaking for myself, Loki has died a few times. I’m still here. I don’t know if death is necessarily… I mean death is… death is in the air, like an existential question. That’s all I can give you.”

### Spoiler Alert: The God of Stories Emerges
Warning: spoilers for the second season of Loki are ahead!
The epic conclusion of “Loki” Season 2 sees the character ascend to a godlike status as the God of Stories. With this new role, Loki finds himself at the center of Yggdrasil, the World Tree, able to potentially influence any world across various timelines. This narrative twist has fueled fan theories about the possible resurrection of sentiments like Tony Stark or Steve Rogers.
### The Loki-Tony Stark Conundrum
During the interview, Fallon questioned Hiddleston about the plausibility of Loki using his time-slipping abilities to interact with characters like Tony Stark. Hiddleston humorously praised Fallon’s investigative journalism efforts before commenting, “This guy. This is investigative journalism. I mean, time slip, technically it gives Loki some interesting moves he can do… I guess, yeah, he can move from past, present, future. I know that I can slip through time. I don’t know if other characters can do it.”
## The Complications of Time Travel
Despite the tantalizing possibilities that time travel presents, the “Loki” season finale made it clear that altering the past isn’t quite straightforward. While it’s technically feasible for Loki to visit Tony Stark before his sacrifice in “Avengers: Endgame,” the storyline suggests that meddling with history carries significant consequences.
## The Multiverse, The Marvels, and What Lies Ahead
With the upcoming film “The Marvels” set to explore the notion of cosmic raids and perhaps pave the way for “Avengers: Secret Wars,” the MCU’s multiverse is poised for further exploration. Loki’s elevated status as the God of Stories could play a pivotal role as this expansive narrative unfolds.
Fans are left to ponder whether any fallen Avengers will make a return to the big screen. Marvel Studios has been exploring various directions, including a focus on Doctor Doom and possibly reassembling the original Avengers lineup, leaving us to conclude that within the MCU, perhaps, anything is truly possible.
