Tom Hiddleston had no idea what had happened to Loki when filming “Avengers: Endgame.”
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is finally getting his own movie. In June, Disney+ will premiere Loki, the third installment of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hiddleston was aware of Kevin Feige’s plans for Loki’s arc in phase one prior to the start of filming. He never wanted to make it to Avengers: Endgame in stage three. When he filmed Loki’s scenes during the time heist, he had no idea it would become the starting point for his solo series. Neither did Marvel.
Where did Loki go in ‘Endgame’?
Loki is still alive and well, as seen in Thor: Infinity War. After Thor: Ragnarok, his assassination by Thanos was his final act (in that reality, at least). When viewers watch Loki, they’ll see him as he was in The Avengers, when he was at his most villainous.
In Avengers: Endgame, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and Scott Lang travel back in time to Loki’s 2012 attack on New York City in order to retrieve the Tesseract/Space Stone. The plan backfired, allowing Loki to flee with the Tesseract in his possession. No one knew where 2012 Loki went after that, both in the film and at Marvel Studios.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hiddleston admitted to being perplexed while filming his Endgame scenes.
“How did he get away?” I wondered. When is he leaving? How is he going to get there? These are all questions I recall asking on the day and not receiving answers to,” Hiddleston explained. In the Disney+ series, all of these questions will be answered.

When filming ‘Avengers: Endgame,’ the Disney+ series ‘Loki’ was not intended.
The God of Thunder wasn’t written with the Loki series in mind, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. This is a condensed version of the plot. I hope you found it entertaining.
