Look, we love Tom Holland. We really do. But upon hearing via that Tom Hiddleston has known about Loki’s early death in Avengers: Infinity War for two years, we cannot help but appreciate Tom Hiddleston’s patience when it comes to not revealing spoilers.
Tom Hiddleston shares some inside knowledge of his character that he used to lecture the cast and crew on set of Loki. The God of Mischief is back for more. Despite his death in Avengers: Infinity War, a different version of Loki was seen in Loki series.
When the Avengers went back in time to defeat Thanos in Avengers: Endgame, they went back to the first Avengers movie, when Loki tried to take over the world. They were trying to steal the tesseract, which contained one of the all-powerful infinity stones, but then Loki got it first and disappeared
While the Avengers went back to the 1970s to try to steal it again, Loki set off on an adventure that created a new, incorrect timeline and screwed a few things up.
In Loki, he’s been captured by the Time Variance Authority, an organization that oversees the sacred timeline, which is the way that things are supposed to happen. The Avengers were supposed to go back in time, but Loki was not supposed to steal the tesseract, which means he’s a variant on the timeline.
He put together what came to be called “the Loki lectures” to help the cast and crew get on his level. Wilson, an MCU newbie, tells E! News that the lectures were “very helpful” as he prepared to play a guy who is essentially a Loki expert.
It seems like even Hiddleston made some discoveries along the way as he picked the character apart to get to the root of the chaos.
