Does This Fan Theory Prove Loki Survived INFINITY WAR?

During Avengers: Infinity War, several beloved characters seemingly met their end at the hands of Thanos, and his all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet. While we fully expect some of those deaths to be reversed by the end of Avengers 4, the “undusted” fatalities have a greater chance of sticking. That includes Loki, whose death in the opening moments of Infinity War seemingly completed his tragic arc of semi-redemption. But what if Loki lives? Today’s Nerdist News is examining an intriguing new fan theory which suggests that Loki may have once again cheated the grim reaper.

Join host and the Asgardian goddess of geeks and nerds, Jessica Chobot, as she runs down the Loki theory that has Tom Hiddleston’s fans very excited. Remember, Loki faked his death during Thor: The Dark World, and one of the key aspects of that trick was that it was a reversed version of Loki who was left-handed. A fan on Reddit recently noticed that Loki once again uses his left hand to attack Thanos shortly before his demise, which could mean that he tricked the Mad Titan and his brother by faking his death…again.

That would be a totally Loki thing to do, which is why it would make sense. It may undo the tragedy of his death, but Loki is always Loki. He was bound to disappoint Thor at some point. It’s in his nature. That said, don’t go celebrating Loki’s return just yet. As pointed out by other Reddit users, Loki’s left hand assault may not prove anything at all. It could have simply been the most convenient way to strike at Thanos without showing his weapon until it was too late. If so, Loki’s fate will stand, barring an act of God/Thanos in the next Avengers.
