Even after the directors’ insistence that Loki is indeed dead, fans can’t really take their word for it, given how they misguided us with the Infinity War trailer. For the sake of Avengers Endgame, we can expect them to lie about some certain events. Some fan theories claim that Loki is not stupid enough to take on the biggest threat in the universe with a little knife. So, either there’s a perfectly valid reason behind this act of Loki or the directors are plain stupid.
But the latest fan theory about Loki doesn’t only present that Loki is alive, rather it says that Loki is and has always been the main antagonist of the MCU. As per theory, prepare yourselves, Thanos is just a henchman for Loki. He is Loki’s puppet.
Now, of course, this theory does provide some valid points for the sake of argument. We are all told that Thanos gave Loki the scepter and ordered him to retrieve the Tesseract. But this meeting never really happened on screen. “Later in the film, (Loki) uses the scepter to teleport onto the rock to speak to Other about the conditions of their deal. During their interaction, we see Loki walking around and looking up and curiously analyzing the stairs leading up to Thanos’ throne. It’s subtle, but watch that scene a few times and you can tell Loki is brewing something up – maybe how to get an upper hand on Thanos.”
Another scene that is pointed out is the post-credits scene of The Avengers. We witness a Thanos with his eyes glowing blue. As mentioned by this theory, “this is the only time where his eyes are that color.” And everyone that Loki uses the scepter on in The Avengers, has their eyes glowing blue.
