Marvel fans attending Disney’s D23 Expo were lucky enough to get a first look at Avengers: Infinity War and the footage sounds insane. According to the descriptions, Marvel showed quite a lot of destruction, including Thanos destroying an entire planet and beating up the Avengers.
Among the destruction and carnage, Marvel also managed to slip in a pretty big announcement. In the teaser, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is shown presenting Thanos with the Tesseract. So I guess it’s confirmed, Loki will survive Thor: Ragnarok and return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War. Even more interesting, the character is yet to learn his lesson and will help Thanos defeat The Avengers.
Personally, I love that Loki will appear in Avengers: Infinity War. The character is easily Marvel’s best villain and I want to see his story arc continued. Saying that I really wish Marvel hadn’t included him in this teaser. This is a character that I very much expected to die in Thor: Ragnarok, and I feel by confirming that he’ll appear in the next Avengers movie, a lot of the mystery has been taken away from Thor’s third movie.
What do you think? Does Loki’s appearance in Avengers: Infinity War spoil Thor: Ragnarok? Are you excited to see the villain return? Let me know in the comments!
