Avengers: Infinity War made its big premiere earlier this year, but its aftermath is still felt by Marvel fanatics around the world. The eagerly awaited film kicked off the 10-year highlight of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a bloody bang. Thanos is known to kill a good number of heroes in the film, but the jury is intent on reviving them all before wrapping Avengers 4 .
Unfortunately, it does not look like one of these characters will get such a blessing. In an interview, Tom Hiddleston said he was satisfied that Loki's story, despite its heavy end, was over.
This weekend's Seattle-based ACE Comic Con is hosting a bunch of stars from Marvel Studios. Boys like Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie formed panels yesterday, but Hiddleston was the star guest at his own question and answer session. There, the British actor opened about Avengers: Infinity War and admits he had plenty of time to deal with Loki's death.
"Well, I knew about this scene. I met Marvel in May 201
" My whole journey Thor: Ragnarok – I knew this would come in. At the end of Thor: Ragnarok Loki was again accepted as Thor's brother. "
Emphasizing how Loki died to rescue Thor, Hiddleston told the audience that he felt it had an impact on how his character was killed, shortly after he had retaken his title as Odin's son. "When I came to shoot the scene in Infinity War I think it's very powerful, he calls himself Odinson, and that includes all Loki's journey and what he can do," said the actor. "It [Loki’s death] is emotionally challenging, it's increasing dramatically, you know that Thanos is someone more dangerous than anyone we've ever seen." Of course the fans fought on the podium through the bittersweet explanation, but there are those who wonder if Loki could make an MCU comeback down the line.
Those familiar with the Marvel Universe know that few characters die and stay – and Loki is no different. Everything, from a last-minute resurrection to reincarnation, could pave the way for the return of the Norse God, but it seems Hiddleston is leaving his legacy behind with Loki. Fan favorite bow is over, allowing him to live long enough to see himself as a hero.
