A fair share of heroes died in Avengers Infinity War and lots of them survived but on a desperate situation. One of the characters that died on Thanos’ hands (literally) was Loki, but actor Tom Hiddleston was not surprised when his character died because he revealed that he already knew Loki’s fate for last two years.

Hiddleston revealed in an interview at ACE Comic Con in Seattle that he knows about the scene way back in May 2016. After his character redeemed himself and reconciled with his brother and the rest of Asgardians, Loki sacrificed himself to save Thor.
“I met with Marvel in May 2016, and they were actually telling me the story of Ragnarok with concept art and images. The Russos came in, and I introduced myself. So, all four of us sat down, and they said this is how Infinity War begins.”
After Loki’s death, his character is pretty much done and his book was officially closed. The God of Mischief was gone. Not only did this scene finally gave the character the finality that he needed, but the scene also emphasized how serious Thanos was.
“When I came to shoot the scene in Infinity War, I think it’s very powerful he calls himself an Odinson, and that closes the whole journey of Loki and what he can do,” the actor said. “It [Loki’s death] set the stakes up emotionally. It takes the stakes up dramatically. You know that Thanos is someone who’s more dangerous than anyone we’ve seen before.”
Tom Hiddleston On Loki’s Death
Since this is Marvel we’re talking about, there’s still a big chance that Loki will come back, right? There’s a small chance that the God of Mischief will ever come back in any MCU movies. Given the fact that his death was planned from the start and its effect in the story is important.
Although fans would like to see the God of Mischief on the big screen again, Tom Hiddleston seems to be content with what happened to his character. Time can only tell if the power of fan demands can overpower Thanos’ massive hands.
