Anthony Russo Says Loki 'Could Absolutely Still Be Alive' In Alternate Timeline
Guys - there's some spoilers in here, so you might want to avoid it if you've not seen Avengers: Endgame yet (but if you haven't then what have you been doing with your life?)
Avengers: Endgame hit cinemas just over two weeks ago, but is already the most talked about film of the year - as well as praise for the movie, fans have gone wild with new theories about what could have happened to the characters.
Many of these theories centre on the God of Mischief himself - Loki - who was bumped off in Avengers: Infinity War only to make a very welcome comeback in Endgame, thanks to a bit of time travel.
Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man and Ant-Man, all travelled back in time to New York in 2012 in an attempt to steal the Tesseract, where Loki was alive, well and nicking the Space Stone.
Once he's got his filthy mitts on the stone, Loki disappears and our heroes simply time travel again and that particular timeline is erased, with no mention of Loki.
But that little story line has prompted some Marvel-fans to speculate on just what happened to Loki and where he ended up, with many adamant that he's not dead, at least in one timeline.
Now, Anthony Russo - one half of the directing duo the Russo Brothers - told the Los Angeles Times that Loki could still be out there, somewhere.
When asked he replied: "Loki could absolutely still be alive in an alternate timeline."
Last year, it was revealed that Tom Hiddleston's Loki would be getting his own spin-off TV show, due to air on Disney+ - the forthcoming streaming platform that will carry both Marvel and Disney content.
So, does this mean that the TV show will focus on 2012 version of Loki, who was a lot more villainous than he became in the later Marvel movies? Personally, I think that would be a fantastic move from Marvel but it looks like we'll just have to wait and see, eh?
Last year, following Loki's untimely on-screen death, fans theorised that he may still be alive and that Bruce Banner was really Loki in disguise. However, these were quickly shot down by the Russo Brothers during a Q&A where they answered bluntly: "Loki is dead."
But of course, all of this happened before Avengers: Endgame, so now everything has changed.
