Both have ongoing projects within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, withLoki's second season currently filming and The Marvelsset set to release in July 2023.
A Marvel Family That Is Expanding
Zawe Ashton and Tom Hiddleston have been notoriously private in their relationship; during their time in charge of Betrayal, the couple said they had been together since at least 2019 but did not confirm their relationship until it was discovered they were engaged earlier this year, which Hiddleston later confirmed in June.
Ashton and Hiddleston will be the first major MCU actors to have a child together. Hiddleston has played Loki in the franchise since 2011, while Ashton will make her own MCU debut in next year'sThe Marvels. While her role is currently undisclosed, she is said to play a villain in theCaptain Marvel sequel.
With both actors on the MCU's production list, it's possible that fans will get to see them on a Marvel red carpet together in the near future, with both actors on the MCU's production list. It's possible that Hiddleston's newfound revival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with his Disney+ series will allow Loki and Ashton's characters to cross paths at some point in Marvel Studios' future.
Ashton may be playing a Kree general from the comics, which is somewhat alien to where Loki is currently operating in the temporal realm, according to rumors. Perhaps the minds at Marvel Studios will find a humorous way for the two to cross over.
