After the events in Thor (2011) where Loki fell from the crystal bridge, as mentioned in the MCU wikia,

Loki, devastated by Odin's repudiation of his actions, let go of Thor on purpose and fell into the abyss made by the destruction of the Bifrost Bridge.

He fell to the Wormhole, and..

..arrived in a part of the universe called Sanctuary and met the Mad Titan Thanos, who offered a pact that would allow him to become ruler of the Earth while he would take the Tesseract which was being studied by S.H.I.E.L.D.. Thanos provided Loki with a Scepter with a blue gem which acted as a powerful weapon, and also as a mind control device.

After these follows the events in Marvel's The Avengers (2012).

    Of note, that portion of the unofficial wikia you've cited is not cited itself. Where is this information actually from? This time period is not depicted in any of the movies or one-shots. We know that he falls, we know that he shows up in Sanctuary - but as you asked, is that where he fell to? Did he go on an intergalactic road trip afterwards? Did he go to Tahiti for a bit?

    @phantom42 I can see him taking a detour through Tahiti. I hear it's a magical place. Jul 15, 2016 at 21:07
  • @phantom42 The wiki said he got through the wormhole and arrived at the sanctuary. so it was like entering a slide tube, then you arrive at the pool..

    Yes, but the wiki is unsourced. It seems to be speculating on events we are never shown. The author assumes that to be the case, but cites nothing to prove that it was the case.

Source: I wrote several scenes for 2011's Thor, including this one.

Loki - who, even falling to his possible death, still grabs for and catches a symbol of power that he can't even use - deliberately lets go and falls away. And I couldn't stand the idea of him drifting around in space. It's that simple. So I suggested a wormhole, just that he fall away to someplace, anyplace, just not lost and drifting around forever.

Yeah, I worked through a lot of stuff writing it. It was still supposed to be darker; the shot where Thor, after Loki falls, looks up at his father, it was originally supposed to be Odin being more severe, less gentle, making Thor look up and say:

"Please don't kill me."

    Making that claim under an anonymous account is not really valid as a source. Can you provide some third party proof that you were one of the screenwriters for Thor (2011)?
