In the meantime, a reader commented on the possible plot featuring Loki’s death and suggested that the popular villain could be spared considering Tom Hiddleston’s contract. User Christian Meeder says that Loki might not die in Thor 3: Ragnarok since the actor still has some movies left in his contract.
User Aaron Kelly replied that Loki doesn’t really die. Instead, he becomes a talking head that Thor literally carries around with him. Similar to these remarks, it seems like several fan theories suggest that Thor’s conspiratorial brother is much more sinister than we think.
Keep in mind that at the end of Thor 2, Loki sits on the throne of Asgard disguised as his father, the former being what he always wanted.
Stay tuned for more updates on Thor 3!
