‘Thor 3' Cast Rumors: Loki Will Have Love Interest? Sequel To Highlight Tom Hiddleston Character As The King Of Asgard! Will Thor Take The Throne Back?

The last scene in "Thor: The Dark World" all but guaranteed a sequel. By placing Loki at the proverbial 'hot seat' as the king of Asgard, it also made the next installment a must-see for the ever-growing Loki fans worldwide.

The more exciting details have yet to be confirmed, but what is certain is that Marvel definitely has plans to develop the character into a major player. In an interview with Total Film, Tom Hiddleston assured his global followers that all his sex appeal will not be wasted:
From Total Film:
"TF: Is Loki ever going to get it on with the Enchantress?
TF: Is he ever going to get a love interest? Does he have to remain a celibate God?
Hiddleston: He certainly is not, though. I mean, Sleipnir is one of his children. Did you know that? Odin's eight-legged horse in the mythology is one of Loki's children. As is Fenrir the wolf.
TF: Right, so he likes animals. He's into bestiality...
Hiddleston: Yep. I don't know (laughs). When I was first reading the comics, the relationship with the Enchantress was one of the really fun things I thought would be good to explore, and may have even pitched it to Kevin Feige at some point. Because she is as sneaky and as untrustworthy as he was.
They basically had a really fantastic and twisted relationship until they both say, 'You know what? I don't trust you as far as I can throw you. It's over.' Because they keep betraying each other, in a way. So it could be good."
There is also the aspect of Odin. The throne had a ruler, and in the aforementioned last scene, Loki disguised himself as Thor's father and gave him his blessing to stay in Midgard (Earth). The Master of Mischief put one over Thor and everyone else on Asgard. Obviously, the Thunder God won't be too happy about that.
But what happened to Odin. A theory put forth by What Culture infuses the reality of filmmaking as a factor:
"Loki has either murdered him or put him somewhere where nobody will ever find him. Loki's rule of Asgard will, of course, make for a highly interesting plot point come Thor 3 (or before then, perhaps) - what will Thor do when he realises his brother isn't dead and has probably done away with their father?
Whether Odin is dead or not presumably hinges on whether or not Anthony Hopkins chooses to return to the series by the time the next sequel swings around."
Yes, it may actually boil down to that. If Anthony Hopkins opts to return, they will resolve the issue. If he does not, the writers would be skilled enough to make a convenient disposal.
Will Anthony Hopkins return? The LA Times actually asked him:
"LA Times:Odin's fate is left rather ambiguous at the end of the new film. What's ahead for the Allfather?
AH: I'm not sure. He hasn't physically died on screen, but I played him as a man who's on his way out. I think they would have to explain in "Thor 3," if there is one, what happens to Odin. Or maybe it'll just be a story line, maybe he went to Tahiti or something for a holiday. I don't know."
"Thor 3" has an unconfirmed, projected release date of 2016. Before then, we would find out if Odin is in the sequel.
