Loki, as we all know, is a Marvel Comics character, is returning from the dead as the villain and God of Mischief with his series on Disney+. It was announced at the Television Critics Association Winter press tour in 2021 that the series would be released on the 11th of July 2021 by Disney itself. It was stuck due to the pandemic situation but now it is finally releasing.
This series is created by Michael Waldron and directed by Kate Herron. The story is set in the continuity after the events of “Avengers: Endgame”.
Tom Hiddleston has clued the fans in by saying that Loki is going to be a completely new part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What has Loki got? – The Plot
If you’ll try to recall, back in 2012’s The Avenger’s movie, Loki was captivated. In the Avengers: Endgame, when the Avengers were fighting among themselves as a part of their time travel plan to stop Thanos, Loki grabbed the tesseract and released himself, which gave him a second chance at life. But we still need to wait for the release of the show to know what exactly Loki is going to do with the tesseract. The first look footage of Loki revealed that he was arrested by the TVA, Time Variance Agency.
This show will probably connect to the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is expected to release in March 2022. The Doctor Strange sequel is surely going to have some connection with the upcoming Spider-Man 3 and WandaVision.
Due to the introduction of Marvel in the Multiverse phase where almost anything is possible, we can expect to see the return of long-gone characters.
What is the Time Variance Agency?
The Marvel creators love to introduce new organizations in their storyline. As now the Marvel Universe has completely gone into the Multiverse phase of the MCU, TVA came into existence although it has already appeared in the comic series before.
Who all are going to be there? The Cast
Tom Hiddleston is playing the lead character, Loki, who is Thor’s troubled adoptive stepbrother. Owen Wilson with a mustache and grey hair cut will be seen as a part of the TVA. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, the Black Mirror actor is also confirmed to be a part of the series. Other cast members include Sasha Lane, Sophia Dimaltino, and Richard E.Grant.
