Following Thor’s decision to leave Earth at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have been split right down the middle, and The Avengers have been disassembled. Meanwhile in Asgard, Loki sits on the throne as Odin in disguise, so nothing is currently as it seems! However, Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston had plenty to say about the events of Captain America: Civil War during an appearance at Wizard World Philadephia over this past weekend.
Asked how they believe Thor would react to finding out The Avengers went to war with each other, Hemsworth said: “I’d be like, ‘Sort it out, idiots. This is silly.’ I don’t know. I’m not sure how that story’s going to go when Thor comes back. But I think it will come as quite a shock that they all aren’t getting along—having a bit of a tiff.” Hiddleston then interjected by going full on Loki and adding, “When I came down to Earth, I brought you guys together. Now I’ve left and you’re fighting each other. Sorry. So sorry.” When Hemsworth suggested that, “Loki’s going to come back and lead them all,” the crowd ate it up as you can see below. That would be quite something to see play out, eh?
Given Loki’s history with Thanos, there’s a very good chance the God of Mischief will end up factoring into Avengers: Infinity War in some way, and him going out a hero would actually work really well (just look at Siege). We’ll just have to wait and see, but Thor: Ragnarok will no doubt drop some more hints about how both of these characters will factor into that movie when it’s released next year.
