After the announcement of Thor and Avengers, something interesting happened, people seemed to be really connected with the villain, Loki. It was crazy! Suddenly, the villain became misguided, with more fans devoted to him than any of the other Avengers combined. This is most often attributed to the perpetual popularity of actor Tom Hiddleston, who has brought a new depth to the long-standing nemesis of titular heroes.
This seemed to lead to a change in dynamics with the MCU, with the character becoming shown as much more than Anti Hero in his next appearances in Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War. Now, the new piece of learning directly from the studio can reconstruct the previous look to fall in line with this new bow.
A Reddit user noted that Marvel secretly updated Loki's biography on their official website to confirm the long-running fan theory regarding the invasion of characters during the 2012 events Avengers. The theory speculated that Loki was not full of control over his actions, rather than being manipulated by his scepter, which in 2015 Avengers: Years of Ultron later he will discover that it contained the Smart Stone. The biography of the character now reads:
Arriving at the Sanctuary through the worm, caused by Bifrost, Loki met the Other, ruler of the ancient race of aliens at Chitauri and Thanos. Forcing the God of the Preaching to rule over the favored kingdom of earth to his brother, Thanos sought Teserac in return. Gifted with a skipper acting as a device for controlling the mind, Loki will be able to influence others. Not known to him, Skeptar also influenced him, fueling his hatred for his brother Thor and the inhabitants of the earth.
This is an interesting change in the character, making his role in the franchise much more ambiguous than his early days in comics, where he took on more than the infamous role. While the motives behind this change are known only to Marvel, it may have something recently confirmed Loki a television series set to debut at Disney's own streaming service. Making Divine at Christmas on Hiddleston as a heroic character will surely be a much safer way in terms of drawing in the audience.
We hope that we will have some official confirmation in the near future.
