Marvel’s Loki just got its official trailer and a lot are excited for the time Loki has finally arrived. Loki is the next in line in the long list of Marvel series coming up on Disney+ forming part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and giving the God of Mischief his very own adventure in a time-centered series.
Loki is known to be full of surprises, may it be betraying yet another character or saving some others, and given his tenure in the MCU, many have come to hate and love him all at the same time. Thor’s brother, or adoptive brother, will now be having his very own series where Loki can finally get to be the hero he always wanted to be.
In the official trailer released by Marvel, Loki will be paying for his crimes against time by doing his own time with the Time Keepers, and no, not the sorcerers like Wong or Doctor Strange, there is a whole organization known as the Time Variance Authority (TVA) who protects the proper flow of time intact ensuring that there would be no misalignment in it and one of them is Mobius M. Mobius, Owen Wilson’s character.
Taken by Odin as an infant orphaned by the war of Asgard against the Frost Giants, Loki has had his fair share of mischiefs around the MCU from his introduction in Thor (2011) to his villainous stint in The Avengers (2012) up to his death in Avengers: Endgame, Loki is given another chance in life as his 2012-self steals the Tesseract during Endgame which causes some ripples in time.
Mobius explains to Loki that when he picked up the Tesseract, he broke reality and created an alternate time stream. Mobius and the TVA asked Loki’s assistance to re-align the time stream and Mobius tells Loki that his “unique Loki-perspective” is much needed. Loki in 2012 is full of confidence and given that, he cannot easily be controlled. He explains to Mobius that he cannot be easily manipulated and that he is “ten steps ahead” of Mobius.
Loki showed how he has trust issues as well as the TVA having some issues with him. Loki assures them that he can be trusted. Mobius pointed out how Loki has a history of stabbing people in the back a lot of times.
The trailer, overall, shows key features of what to expect in the upcoming Marvel series along with who would be involved and some fight scenes Loki will be having. Loki stars Tom Hiddleston in the titular role along with Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant. The series has six episodes lined up.
Loki premieres on June 11, 2021, via Disney+.
