Loki might be dead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s present timeline, but a previous version of the trickster god will reappear in his very own Disney+ show. While Marvel is also beginning several other streaming lines in 2021, the Loki series is incredibly perplexing.
Tom Hiddleston is fixed to return as Thor’s sneaky brother, and, with The tesseract in hand, Loki’s exploits will be taking him to a lot of new dimensions.
The 30-second scene that played during the Super Bowl exposed that the Time Variance Authority, an establishment tasked with observing any modifications to the timeline, may not be too happy with him.
The New Trailer
Loki: Release Date
Loki will release in May 2021 on Disney+. Shooting on the series began earlier this year but, like with various other productions, had to lockdown due to the pandemic. In September, the series reopened filming and, pending no additional hiccups, is on track to debut in the springtime. What’s more, Loki will comprise of 6 episodes, which appears to be the magic number for all of Marvel’s Disney+ line so far.
Tom Hiddleston is back as the main cast. However, he’ll be playing The Avengers variant of him (circa 2012). Besides, Loki has appointed Owen Wilson, who seems to be acting as a TVA agent of some sort, Richard E. Grant, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Sasha Lane, and Wunmi Mosaku.
It is not surer if any of Hiddleston’s Thor co-actors, including Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, and Renee Russo, will make a comeback on the series, but there might be a possibility.
Loki: Potential Plot
A brief plot summary was included, strengthening Rick & Morty writer Michael Waldron would work as Loki series author and compose the pilot. The Loki plan description teases that the play will follow Loki as the trickster and shapeshifter pop up throughout personal history as [an] incredible influencer on past events.
In a similar interview, the Russo brothers revealed that when Loki seized the Tesseract in Avengers Endgame and teleported away, he made a new branching existence. Not only does that make it remarkably hard for Captain America (or anyone else) to recover him, it also unlocks the door to all kinds of shenanigans we could notice in Loki.
The new trailer exhibits that the circumstances of Loki take place in the instant aftermath of his escape in Endgame. Once the trickster god disappears, he presumably crosses time and space before docking in a remote location and is instantly taken in by the TVA. He vanishes at some point, and there are flashes of a battle between him and whoever Mbatha-Raw is performing.
