The Russo brothers have confirmed that The God of Mischief, Loki, is in fact, dead.
During a screening of Avengers: Infinity War last night, Peter Sciretta was kind enough to tweet the latest information from Anthony and Joe’s Q&A. The duo behind the Winter Soldier, Civil War, and Infinity War answered many questions and one of the answers confirmed Loki’s death. “Loki is dead,” repeated Sciretta.
The Russo’s were asked about a fan theory that Bruce Banner is really Loki in disguise. They answered. That “Loki is dead.”

This theory was put forward on Reddit by user, u/LordTryhard on the r/Avengers subreddit six months ago. This stemmed from Banner’s inability to change into Hulk throughout the film. While many agreed with this, there were a few who trashed it. “Banner has ‘conversations’ with the Hulk even when nobody appears to be around. Why would Loki feel the need to do that?” Excellent point. Case closed.
However, the good news is that Loki will be returning soon to the Disney+ streaming service and will reportedly star Tom Hiddleston.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
