Tom Hiddleston will be back to playing a bad guy in The Avengers: Infinity War as Marvel Studios president Kevin FeigeÂ confirms Loki will be an ally to the Mad Titan Thanos.
Kevin Feige confirmed the news at the Brazil Comic-Con via a video feed satellite (h/t the Omlete).
Loki already shares a past with Thanos as the AsgardianÂ Trickster received the Scepter in The Avengers movie, and the recent Avengers: Infinity War trailer showed Loki giving Thanos the Tesseract (Infinity Stone).
I figured Loki would be an ally to Thanos in the Avengers: Infinity War movies, possibly somewhat like a Mephisto from the Infinity Gauntlet comics.
