‘Loki’ Star Sophia Di Martino on Potential Season 3 and Wanting a Sylvie-Thor Crossover: ‘It Would Be Fun to See Them Get Wound Up’


Ask the stars of Disney+’s “Loki” if there’s going to be a third season and all will insist they don’t know.

“I have no idea, honestly,” Sophia Di Martino, who stars as Sylvie, told me Saturday morning at a “Loki” FYC Emmy screening and Q&A at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

That doesn’t mean Martino wants her time with Marvel to come to an end. “I’m open to more,” she said. “But honestly I think the [Season 2] finale was great and if that’s it, I’m very grateful for what we’ve had. But they don’t say anything. The veil of secrecy extends to us, too.”

Di Martino says she’d love to share some screentime with Thor (Chris Hemsworth) some day. “I think it would be great to see Sylvie and Thor,” she said. “I think it would be fun to see them get wound up, especially if Loki is in the equation. Three siblings together? The dynamic would be interesting.”

As for Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston, he told me at the Hulu on Disney+ launch event on April 5 that’s he OK if a third season doesn’t get greenlit. “There had been times before when I truly thought it was the end and I’ve been mistaken,” he said. “But if this is the end, I’m so proud of where we ended up.”

Hiddleston is now turning his attention to “The Night Manager.” BBC and Prime Video announced last week that the hit John le Carré’s series was being revived for two more seasons following its premiere season finale with Hiddleston returning as Jonathan Pine. Premiering in 2016, Season 1 of “The Night Manager” won two Emmys and three Golden Globes, including best actor for Hiddleston.

“It’s taken a while,” Hiddleston said of “The Night Manager.” “We needed to get the story right.”

In fact, cameras should start rolling any day now because Hiddleston says filming is preventing him from attending this year’s Met Gala next month. “What’s exciting is that Jonathan Pine has been alive in the real world for the last eight or nine years, and a lot has happened in the real world,” Hiddleston said. “And where we find him and his response to where we are, I think will be very interesting.”
