anyway as far as loki and thanos. i said before and i'll say it again. if they do the IF. loki is gonna take mephisto's place from the comic as a sidekick to thanos. also all this talk of dr. strange coming up all we need is for marvel to try and get galactus and the silver surfer and we could really do the infinity gauntlet story.
The growing Dr. Strange rumors make an odd bit of sense. For one thing, his services will probably be needed against Thanos, since he was part of that story line and all; and there was that Orb of Agamotto shown in Odin's Treasury, of course; and we know that Marvel have officially stated that there's a Dr. Strange movie coming sometime soon. So yeah, that lends creedence to the Gauntlet theory, too.
I'm not so sure that Loki needs to be Thanos' sidekick, though....I'd say that the original character "The Other" already fulfills the role that Mephisto played in the comics.
But otherwise, I like your theory that Loki might be double-crossing the double-crossers....his mind *is* that twisted and devious. Definitely can't put it past him.
