We are talking about the second post-credits scene of Thor: Love and Thunder. Does Loki appear in that sequence so surprising, unexpected and amazing?
There are a lot of novelties and traditions that are established in the two hours that it lasts Thor: Love and Thunder. However, some of the most important parts are directly related to Jane Foster. After raising the Mjolnir for the last time to save the universe, the body of the Goddess of Thunder fades because of cancer. When she dies, she begins to evaporate into golden god dust. This is something we see throughout the movie. Marvel Studios. But what about Loki?
Before Thor: Love and Thunder finish, the character of Natalie Portman appears again during the post-credits scene. He wears a white robe and is greeted by none other than heimdall. The guard announces that they are in the Valhalla. But, if Heimdall is there, what about Loki? Why didn’t he turn to gold dust when he killed him? Thanos at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War? We saw how his corpse fell to the ground in the Asgardian ship and stayed there, stayed physically.
In Norse mythology, dying on the battlefield is not the only requirement to enter Valhalla. An additional criterion is that whoever accesses the heavenly sanctuary has to be selected by Odin himself. Fortunately for Loki, they ended their relationship very well during the last few days, before separating for good. The God of Lies and Deceit not only did he die in combat, but Odin had surely allowed him to enter the Valhalla that we see in Thor: Love and Thunder. Even if dying in battle was the only way, he did it. He redeemed himself in the process. It would be a crime to deny him entry.
The God of Lies and Deceit has all the ballots to have entered Valhalla
Another way to enter this promised land that appears in Thor: Love and Thunder is that, in general, one has to be Asgardian. However, Loki is a frost giant. Be that as it may, there seems to be some wiggle room and some freedom when it comes to that selection criteria. After all, Jane Foster has accessed Valhalla and is human. Therefore, the antihero of Tom Hiddleston It has many ballots to be able to access the sky of Viking mythology.
To top it off, Loki also sacrificed his life for his brother and for the Asgardian people. That should be more than enough to earn you, at the very least, a one-way ticket to Valhalla. The question that now arises is whether, after Thor: Love and Thunderthe brother of God of Thunder will ever appear again. So no, she doesn’t appear in the post-credits scene… But she’s probably there!
