Tom Hiddleston Says Thanos Actor Josh Brolin Apologized To Him For ‘Killing Loki’

Loki came back from the dead several times in the MCU, but the Marvel cast thought he went for good after his third exit.

Josh Brolin’s Thanos killed Loki by breaking his neck in the early minutes of 2018’s ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ Brolin apparently apologized to Tom Hiddleston for the scene during the filming back then. Hiddleston recalled in a new chat with Backstage:

“He came up to me, gave me this huge hug, and said, ‘I’m so sorry, man.’”

The rest of the cast and crew also mourned the God of Mischief’s seemingly permanent exit:

“At the end of that scene, I got a big round of applause, and everybody was so sweet and kind and gracious. I got notes and emails saying, ‘Tom, you’ve done so much for us—what a journey. Come and see us anytime.’ I really thought that was the end.”

Loki first fell to his death in 2011’s ‘Thor’ only to return in ‘The Dark World.’ The God of Mischief appeared to die at the end of the second film as well, but it turned out in Taika Waititi’s ‘Ragnarok’ that he faked the event.

Coming Back From The Dead Is Loki’s Thing, Hiddleston Says

The Marvel villain/anti-hero’s death in ‘Infinity War’ was real, but he later returned again in his own series after escaping his timeline in ‘Endgame.’ Hiddleston commented on his character’s repeated comebacks by saying:

“I’ve realized that, in human consciousness, that’s who Loki is. Loki is this ancient, mythic character, who, in our collective mythology, represents the trickster, the transgressor, the boundary-crosser, the shape-shifter—somebody who’s mercurial and spontaneous and unpredictable who will always confound your expectations and wriggle out from underneath your certainties and convictions. Someone who we need and [who] is necessary.”

He added:

“Maybe Loki escaping death a couple of times is sort of an emblem of who he is in our culture. I spend a lot of time thinking about Loki. You can probably tell.”

It’s uncertain if Loki will return following his self-sacrifice in ‘Loki’ Season 2, but rumors hint at a possible cameo in the upcoming ‘Deadpool & Wolverine.’
