In a recent convention appearance, Loki actor Tom Hiddleston addressed whether or not his character actually died in Avengers: Infinity War.
Since the character’s tragic death in the latest Avengers film, fans have been debating over whether or not the character actually died. Many cite the fact that Loki had apparently died in both of the Thor films only to turn out to be alive. In this latest death, the character was apparently strangled by Thanos at the start of Avengers: Infinity War. This, however, has not stopped people from speculating that he might still be alive and the one killed was a body double.
During an appearance at ACE Comic Con, the Loki actor addressed one of the theories:
“Listen… I’ve heard some amazing theories about this. I was in a park in London a couple of weeks ago, and some guys came and said hi, and they asked me the same question. They said, ‘Hey, listen, we need an answer to this question. All the other times Loki’s died’ — there’s been a few — ‘he stabs with his right hand. And now he’s stabbing with his left hand.’ I was like, ‘That’s incredible attention to detail.’”
When pressed by Avengers co-star Elizabeth Olsen if he knew, Tom Hiddleston claimed that he did not have any the answers:
“Your guess is as good as mine.”
From the sound of things, even Loki’s own actor isn’t aware of his characters fate!
The fact that Tom Hiddleston isn’t aware of his character’s future isn’t surprising. Marvel Studios kept a tight wrap on Avengers: Infinity War to the point that even the actors didn’t know what was going on half the time and it’s not hard to imagine that they are doing the same for Avengers 4. The character is, however, set to appear in his own show series on Disney’s new streaming service. The exact nature of the show, however, is currently unknown.
