As expected, "Thor: The Dark World" performed heroically at the box office this weekend, as the latest Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster earned a whopping $86.1 million according to Film.com.

Combined with the $240.3 million "Thor: The Dark World" has already taken in overseas, Chris Hemsworth and company are now sitting at a tidy $326.4 million worldwide in just ten days of release.

Tom Hiddleston Gets Weepy on 'Thor: The Dark World' Red Carpet

All good things must come to an end, and it would appear that Tom Hiddleston, who portrays the fan favorite character of Loki in the Marvel cinematic universe, has reached an end point with the popular comic book adaptations.

Yes, according to Marvel chief Kevin Feige, we won't be seeing Loki again anytime soon. He won't appear in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron," and the boss man hasn't said anything about him coming back in later installments either.

"I don’t think it would be before 'Thor 3' if there is a 'Thor 3' and while we certainly have ideas of where we would like that to go, there are no specifics," Feige told SlashFilm of Loki's future. "We have to see how this one does and then go from there."

When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with Hiddleston on the red carpet for "Thor: The Dark World" this week, the actor got emotional while talking about his possible exit from the franchise.

Well, good thing dude's an actor, because we get the feeling those tears were summoned up on command.

"Oh man, I hadn't thought about until you told me," Hiddleston said. "I just really miss it, man. You know, it's been, like, a really good time. You made me cry!"

Sweet emotion, everyone.

On a more serious note, Hiddleston said that being cast as trickster villain Loki had "changed [his] life."

"It's been absolutely above and beyond my wildest dreams," he said.

"Thor: The Dark World," also starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Stellan Skarsgard, hits theaters November 8. Kenneth Branaugh directs.

You Won't See Sam Claflin's Goodies in 'Catching Fire'

Lionsgate Lionsgate

Fangirls (and guys) of the world, commence weeping: We have no chance of seeing Sam Claflin's no-no when he appears on screen November 22 as Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

In the installment of Suzanne Collins' series that the new movie is based on, the rakish tribute appeared — to Katniss' dismay and the delight of imaginative readers everywhere — in a parade wearing only a golden fishnet with a strategically placed knot over his you-know-where. After all, he may be from the fishing-centric District 4, but if he has to dress in a fisherman theme, at least it can be a sexy fisherman theme. (Claflin is very true to canon with this point, making sure that his fellow castmembers told a screaming crowd at Comic-Con that he was "a sex god.")

But it's time for those dreams of shimmering fishnet to be dashed: In an interview with MTV News, costume designer Trish Summerville confirmed that Finnick's parade outfit will not parade his goods as much as in the book. Get More »

Questions and Answers With Domhnall Gleeson

Getty Images Getty Images

Domhnall Gleeson, Hollywood's newest leading man would like to stress two things: His new movie is super weird, and he's really hungry. Gleeson, 30, leads Richard Curtis' ("Love Actually") quirky new time travel movie, "About Time." Not quirky in that the protagonists wear glasses and have bangs (well, Gleeson's co-star Rachel McAdams has bangs, but she calls it "fringe," so she gets a pass), but that the movie is anything but a typical rom-com.

"It's a bizarre film," Gleeson told NextMovie during a September conversation in New York City. "There's time travel, there's craziness and all the rest, but it's romantic comedy and there's big bits and big comedy and all the rest of it."

Best known for playing Bill Weasley in later installments of the "Harry Potter" series, Gleeson steps up to the plate as Tim in the unconventional new movie, which opens wide on November 8. The year he turns 21, Tim is shocked when his father (played by Bill Nighy) tells him that the men in their family can travel back in time. Throughout his life, Tim learns the do's (spend time with the people you care about) and don'ts (you're not going to come up with a suave opening line when you want to chat up that girl) of time travel, coupling up with Mary (Rachel McAdams) in the meantime. While the movie still maintains the humor and warmth "Love Actually" fans will recognize (and, as Gleeson said, Curtis' "gloriously over the top" sensibilities), "About Time" is ultimately a meditation on family and enjoying the time you're given in this life.

Our conversation with Gleeson, however, is a meditation on the possibilities that time travel would open up, from the ability to avoid soiling oneself to a new ailment that Gleeson dubbed "time-travel bulimia," perhaps out of wishful thinking related to the strict diet the actor is on in preparation for a role.

Which 'Last Vegas' Cast Member Was 'Always Hungover'?

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. However, that saying isn't applicable to "Last Vegas" stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro and Kevin Kline as they spilled the beans with an interview with MTV News.

In the movie, the foursome head to Las Vegas to throw an epic bachelor party for the last single member of their posse (Douglas). What happens when you mix four men of advancing age, booze, Viagra, and the bright lights of Sin City? You'll have to buy a ticket to see, but the actors indulged in sharing a few shenanigans from the set. Get More »
