In a recent interview with The Los Angeles Times, the Russo brothers discussed many of the Avengers’ emotional journeys. They also revealed the possible fate of a certain character.
We saw what became of our favorite Avengers in Endgame – how they’d grown, the sacrifices they’d make, and more. But whatever really happened to Thor’s brother Loki?
[Infinity War & Endgame Spoilers Ahead]
If you’ll recall, in Infinity War, Loki died being strangled by Thanos; and in Endgame, Thanos did say there’d be no resurrections this time.
In Endgame, we were brought back to the very first Avengers film during one of the time heist scenes. There, when things didn’t go exactly according to plan, Loki managed to disappear with the Tesseract.
So, what does that mean for the fate of the Asgardian prince?
Alive in the Multiverse
The Times asked the Russo brothers if Captain America returning the stones would technically undo that scene or not.
“Loki could absolutely still be alive in an alternate timeline,” responded Anthony Russo.
This may mean we haven’t seen the last of the God of Mischief, especially considering what’s been recently been revealed.
In the new Spider-Man: Far Away From Home trailer, there is certainly mention of such alternate worlds. When Thanos snapped his finger, it seems a multiverse was created – and perhaps Loki is alive in one of the alternate universes.
“Loki, when he teleports away with the Time Stone, would create his own timeline,” Joe Russo told Business Insider. “It gets very complicated, but it would be impossible for [Cap] to rectify the timeline unless he found Loki. The minute that Loki does something as dramatic as take the Space Stone, he creates a branched reality.”
We also know that there’s about to be a streaming series starring Tom Hiddleston on Disney+, too. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, “sources say the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shape-shifter pops up throughout human history as an unlikely influencer on historical events.”
The show, helmed by Rick & Morty‘s Michael Waldron, we suspect will certainly shed some light on what’s happened.
In the meantime, it definitely seems as if Loki is alive and well in some universe.
