Is Loki really dead this time? After what happened in Avengers: Infinity War where Thanos kills Loki within the first five minutes, fans have been looking for ways to explain how he could still be alive.

There are many theories but this one seems to be the most plausible. The most popular theory is that Loki, being the trickster he is, made a magical double to take his place and give him a chance to escape. One of the reasons behind this theory is the fact that Loki has faked his death twice before. The first time we see this is at the end of Thor. In the movie, Loki is hanging off the broken end of the Bifrost. He lets go and falls into “the unknown” where we don’t hear from him until the end credits scene, which hints that he would be a major player in the next movie in the franchise, The Avengers. The other time we see him do this is in Thor: The Dark World. In this movie we see him get stabbed by the movie’s antagonist. We watch as he “dies” in Thor’s arms. At the end of the movie, it is revealed that Loki actually disguised himself as Odin. Seeing Loki escape death multiple times is what makes fans wonder whether or not he really dies in Infinity War.

The second reason people believe this theory is that in Infinity War, Loki tried to stab Thanos with his left hand. Loki is typically right-handed. The only time we see him use his left hand is when it’s one of his fake doppelgangers. Fans have used this as evidence to prove that Loki has escaped death once again.

Many look forward to when the new Disney streaming service comes out and the new Loki series is available for viewing. The general hope is that Loki survived the first scene of Avengers: Infinity War. Loki escaping death more than once has made fans skeptical. Now all that’s left to do and wait and see what the future holds for the god of mischief.
