I believe there was a phrase something along the lines of "They believe us to be immortal" which implied to me that this was incorrect and Loki knew that the fall would indeed kill him (and Thor).

Ok, I'll attempt an answer, based only on the movie (not the comics) and my small bit of knowledge about Norse mythology (paired with up-to-date Wiki-research). First of all the movie depicts the gods as being just a kind of powerful aliens (wandering on the same paths as Stargate and its farther-in-spirit Erich von Däniken already did). Indeed this isn't ...

I believe he would survive,it could have been just reaction lead by fear and panic. Thor can "fly" but inside a steel cage it is of no use to him so getting out is smart idea no matter how immortal he is. Falling and getting hit by a steel roof also can't feel too good...and it could ruin his magnificent hair. There is always fear of death,and especially ...

It is never said explicitly how exactly he survived, but in The Avengers it is hinted that he was saved by the Chitauri and their leader. A mysterious character by the name "The Other" tells Loki: The Other: You question us? You question HIM? He, who put the scepter in your hand, who gave you ancient knowledge and new purpose when you were cast out, ...

And yet, Coulson hands Thor over into Selvig's custody, with only an offhand order to one of his agents to "follow them," which never seems to be followed up on. What's going on there? They are indeed following him, that's why they saw his friends: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcif323T_qo And right after that, the destroyer arrived. So they were ...

Reading up on this Marvel Universe article about Cosmic Cubes tells us that there is possibly more than one cube in the universe itself. If we are to believe that the Cinematic Universe (Earth-199999 as it is known in the Marvel Multi-verse) has similar canon then we can assume the same to be true that there is more than one Tesseract a.k.a. Cosmic Cube ...

Thor would likely die or at least be severely hurt, and they are not immortal. The idea that they are immortal comes from human Norse mythology. Loki's father the ice king was killed by Thor's father Odin. Odin must go into the Odinsleep else he would die, and while in the sleep he is mortal. Thor will inherit the thrown of Asgard when his father dies. ...

They are not immortal. Human weaponry cannot kill them due to their GOD-LIKE power, but a fall like that would most definitely. Loki is a Jotan and Thor are is an Asguardian, beings who had come to Earth during the Viking age. The Vikings mistook them for Gods and so the legend of Norse Gods was born. (NOTE this refers to the mythical world of the Avengers ...

Loki was being sarcastic you see if Thor fell he would not die but be injured (as you would be after such a big fall) causing him to dissappear for a while to recover. If he was away for a while people would give up the idea of him being immortal and think he just died.

In the mythology, Loki is blood brother of Odin. He is a Giant, not an Aesir, and its common knowledge. He is a trickster and a shapeshifter, and fathered and mothered Hel, goddess of the underworld; Fenris, the giant wolf destined to kill Odin at Ragnarok; and Jormungand, the serpent that wraps the earth biting its tail. He ends up chained beneath the ...

Thor is not immortal and neither is Loki, otherwise there would be little point in them fighting. Loki stabs Thor and he is clearly injured from it. They are very tough compared to humans but they are not all powerful. The fall would most likely have killed Thor - even if not it would have badly hurt him - even if not, he is not going to hang around to ...
