Chris Hemsworth Won’t Rule Out Loki’s Return In Avengers: Endgame


“No resurrections this time,” Thanos says after choking the life out of Loki in Avengers: Infinity War. While many viewers read the line as a promise to audiences that Marvel wasn’t about to pull yet another Loki fake-out, the fans have still done a whole load of debating in the past year on whether or not the trickster’s death was legit. And as the release of Avengers: Endgame looms closer, it seems that the issue has been raised once again in a discussion with Chris Hemsworth.

The Thor actor joined Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd and Endgame co-directors Anthony and Joe Russo at a fan event last night in London. While the team was taking questions, the subject of Loki was raised, at which point, Hemsworth admitted that Tom Hiddleston’s character has a habit of cheating death:

“Ahhh, he’s like the girlfriend you break up with and they don’t get the message. Like, ‘You’re dead, sorry, it’s over,’ and they’re coming round to hang the new drapes. The most poignant moments [of Thor’s movies] have been with Loki.”

As for whether or not the God of Thunder’s brother might some day return, Hemsworth pleaded ignorance:

“I don’t know what the future holds. I love Tom. I miss him.”

At this point, “I don’t know” has become the standard answer for any question to cast members about the future of the MCU, so perhaps there’s not much to read into here. Regardless, set photos have already made it very clear that Hiddleston has shot some footage for the Infinity War sequel, seemingly against the backdrop of the Battle of New York from 2012’s The Avengers. Though the context of his scenes has yet to be confirmed, it’s long been a popular theory that Endgame will see Earth’s Mightiest Heroes travel back in time.

Of course, whether or not Loki comes back from the dead in the present day is another matter. We can expect some clarification when Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, but either way, Hiddleston is already confirmed to reprise his role for Loki’s upcoming Disney Plus show.
