Russo Brothers Lay Rumors To Rest, Confirm That Sadly, ‘Loki’ Is Indeed, Dead
By Izza Sofia, 30 Nov 2018
Marvel fans who were hoping that the ‘God of Mischief’ had survived the ‘Thanos’ snap, there is, unfortunately, some bad news for you.
The Russo brothers have confirmed that ‘Loki Odinson’ has indeed perished for good. During a special screening of Avengers: Infinity War, Peter Sciretta from Slash Film tweeted major news learnt from the live Q&A session.
If you were one of those who thought that ‘Loki’ could be ‘Bruce Banner’ in disguise, alas, this is not the case.
“The Russo’s were asked about a fan theory that ‘Bruce Banner’ is really ‘Loki’ in disguise. They answered. That ‘Loki is dead,’” Sciretta tweeted.
Sciretta also filled fans in about the Russo brothers detailing the secrecy surrounding the entire script for Avengers: Infinity War. It is said that no one has the full script in their possession and that the Russo brothers even wrote fake and redacted scenes to keep the film under wraps.
One rumored pseudo scene had ‘Gamora’ throwing ‘Thanos’ off a cliff to inherit the ‘Soul Stone’, instead of the one seen in the final movie.
The Russo brothers added that the hiccups faced by Guardians 3 did not impact Avengers 4 as they had finished filming at that point.

They did three drafts of the film, one draft had Thanos as the narrator of the film and was non Linus’s in structure and had backstories for the Black order. That script was 250 pages. Writing out Thanos narration gave them insight on the character even though it didn’t make it.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 29, 2018
Thanos was able to beat The Hulk in the beginning not because of the power stone but because he was smarter and more calculated.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 29, 2018

They explored other ideas for the final shot but Thanos smiling at the sunset was an idea they came to very early on when the writers realized it was Thanos’ movie. He was serving an idea larger than himself, and that’s why Thanos is a hero in his own mind.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 29, 2018
The Soul Stone has the ability to manipulate your soul and your essence of who you are. Thanks uses the Soul Stone to pull Strange out of his own body when he’s multiple Stranges. Thanos also uses the soul stone to talk to his dead daughter.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 29, 2018
An example of a fake scene The Russo Brothers wrote to keep Infinity War secrecy, Gamora threw Thanos off the cliff in the Soul Stone sequence. I’m not even sure if they are kidding.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) November 29, 2018
