In the starting of Thor after the battle between the Asgardians and the Frost Giants Loki is found as a child. And the war is in 965 AD. So by calculation the age can be obtained.

But in Avengers Infinity War Thor himself declares that Thanos is 1500 years old:

Thor: You know, I'm 1500 years old. I've killed twice as many enemies as that. And every one of them would have rather killed me than not succeeded. I'm only alive because fate wants me alive. Thanos is just the latest of a long line of bastards, and he'll be the latest to feel my vengeance - fate wills it so.

How can that be?

  • Probably likely that the Wiki was basing his age off his comic counterpart and they didn't update it when Infinity War came out. – DeeV Jan 5 at 13:18
  • @DeeV He says it was also proven in the Thor movie, though (although, it might help if he quoted where in the films his age was stated). – Napoleon Wilson Jan 5 at 14:10

    Note. Wikia are not canon they are fan written. – Paulie_D Jan 5 at 14:14

    @Longshanks ... thanks for the link. Doesn't that (assuming you trust wiki content) just prove that Loki was a baby in 965. Thor could easily be 445 years older than Loki. They are not even the same species. Or is there content saying that they are the same(ish) age? – iandotkelly Jan 5 at 15:00

    Just to give you some helpful hints Nazgul. I suspect that you are getting downvoted here is that you don't set out your reasoning for why he is 1055 years old based on the Thor movie, because wiki content is fan based and not canon and also (many) people don't find this sort of discrepancy to be particularly interesting. Even if it is a movie "goof" .... it's not particularly interesting in the context of the Avengers stories or even the general MCU. – iandotkelly Jan 5 at 15:04
