Marvel confirmed a dead hero will return, solving one of Endgame’s last mysteries
Avengers: Endgame is the biggest movie of the year, a massive event for the Marvel Cinematic Universe that has no rival. The film is filled with amazing Easter eggs that fans of the MCU certainly appreciate, and the fast-paced story is fun to follow, although there are various events that have puzzled fans.
The film’s plot isn’t full of holes, and most everything can be explained — and we did look at the various controversies that emerged after the premiere. Not to mention that Marvel stepped in to clarify matters, going on record to explain some of the more divisive elements of the plot — time travel rules and Captain America’s timeline come to mind. But there’s still something Marvel needs to properly explain, a detail that might prove to be very important for understanding the entirety of Endgame as a film, and of what’s to follow in the MCU.
Almost two months ago, actor Tom Hiddleston had this to say to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show:
“In the years since Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, which came out this spring, two questions have been asked: Is Loki really dead, and what is Loki doing with that cube? And this series will answer both of those questions.”
But Hiddleston never expanded on those questions. At the time, we told you that Marvel will solve these two remaining mysteries, but that we’ll have to wait. Little did we know that Marvel was about to do something unexpected and actually deliver what initially seems like a tiny spoiler, but is actually of major importance.
While addressing the complex Phase 4, full of movies and Disney+ TV shows, Marvel president Kevin Feige acknowledged that the Loki series will actually tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:
“The Scarlet Witch will be a key character in that movie, and Feige points out that the Loki series will tie in, too. “I’m not sure we’ve actually acknowledged that before,” he says. “But it does.””
That’s a massive revelation about the character, as Marvel practically confirmed the revival of a dead hero.
