An alternate ending for Thor: Ragnarok would have effectively changed how Loki would have died in Avengers: Infinity War.
Thor: Ragnarok directly led into Avengers: Infinity War, with the latter beginning moments after Thanos had destroyed the ship carrying the Asgardians who had escaped Hela’s wrath. Besides just general civilians, the ship had Thor, Korg, and Loki on board. In the opening moments of Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos destroyed the ship and took the Tesseract from Loki, killing the trickster. Within minutes, audiences knew that Thanos wouldn’t be playing around in Avengers: Infinity War.
A brand new piece of concept art from the Avengers: Endgame art book shows how the beginning of the Infinity War could have been radically different if Thor: Ragnarok had ended in a completely different manner. Instead of going on the ship with everyone in Thor: Ragnarok, Loki would have dispersed to Jotunheim to protect himself and the Tesseract. This would have directly led to the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, where Thanos would have found Loki on the planet of Jotunheim and killed him.
This ending would have definitely changed how audiences would have perceived Loki at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, as he does ultimately try to protect himself and Thor by sheer virtue of being in his vicinity. If Loki were alone, as the alternate Thor: Ragnarok ending suggested, audiences would have not have seen him essentially redeemed in the eyes of his brother.
