The opening sequence of Avengers: Infinity War saw Thanos killing the God of Mischief Loki as he attempted to stand against the Mad Titan. While the Russo brothers have also confirmed Loki’s death in Infinity War, fans are still hoping that the Marvel character might be back in Avengers: Endgame considering the fact that Loki has faked his death before.
Actor Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, claims that his character finally earned his redemption in Infinity War for whatever good or bad he did in the last five MCU movies which include all three Thor films, The Avengers, and Avengers: Infinity War.
During an appearance at ACE Comic Con in Phoenix, Arizona, Hiddleston opened up about Loki’s character, his back-story, and his eventual redemption.
“It goes back to that first film,” Hiddleston explained, reported Comic Book. “He finds out too late that he was adopted and that his real father was his father’s mortal sworn enemy and that is incredibly, emotionally destabilizing.”
Hiddleston mentioned that although fans hated Loki’s weird behavior and troubling acts, they still had empathy for the character.
“It is a great scene to play and I think people always understand that Loki is a troubled soul and that he is evacuating his pain onto other people,” continued Hiddleston. “But they understand where the pain is coming from so there’s empathy there.”
The MCU actor said in his opinion Loki’s character got finally redeemed in Infinity War, hinting that his character won’t get resurrected in Avengers: Endgame.
“I think the first film really humanizes him and I think makes the rest of the journey interesting,” Hiddleston said. “It makes you always think that he could be pulled back and redeemed. And in my opinion, he is redeemed in Infinity War.”
While it remains unknown if Loki is returning back in Avengers: Endgame, he will definitely be back for a limited series for Disney’s brand new Disney+ streaming service.
“I think I posted something about this. It’s very exciting. I cannot say much about it, I’m afraid,” the Loki actor said. “Time will tell.”
Avengers: Infinity War is now available on home media. Avengers: Endgame is arriving in theatres on April 26th.
