One day you’re invading Earth with an army of aliens, the next you’re bravely seeking vengeance for your mother’s death while also stealing your father’s identity.
Before you know it, you’re unexpectedly coming to Asgard’s rescue to save everyone from your even more sinister sister… But not without secretly grabbing a powerful weapon on your way out of town.
With a resume like that, it’s not hard to understand why Marvel fans are skeptical of the God of Mischief’s true intentions going into Avengers: Infinity War, especially since he’s seen in the trailer handing the Tesseract over to Thanos. So since the most famous trickster in the MCU could still prove to be a friend or foe, we asked Tom Hiddleston himself to see if we could unravel what Loki might be hiding.
Nerdist News correspondent Markeia McCarty talked with Hiddleston to try and learn which side of the Loki coin will come up in the film, since we’re never sure if he’s going to flip on his brother Thor or not. But even though he (fittingly) wasn’t eager to give up Loki’s real intentions, he did reflect on how the character has changed over time and how that could determine what he does when he comes face-to-face with the Mad Titan.

The fact that this is a legitimate question just goes to show how much Loki has changed from when we first met him, when he was scheming to steal his brother’s throne and trying to exterminate an entire race of Frost Giants. That Loki would have definitely been a foe, but that doesn’t mean he won’t still show up when Thanos does.
What do you think? Is Loki someone you can rely on now, or should you never trust the trickster? Tell us why in the comments below.
