Disney plus finally dropped the trailer for the god of mischief's upcoming series. Here's what to expect.
The god of mischief has (once again) proven he is more powerful than death, and now he is having his television show!
Loki has died multiple times in the MCU, and even Thanos said “no more resurrections” when he choked the life out of him in 'Avengers: Infinity War.' But well, guess who's back?
Loki may be the least trustworthy member of the MCU, but his sense of humor and a charming dash of cynicism made him a fan favorite.
The series will be created by Michael Waldron, whose previous works include Community and Rick and Morty.
Disney plus finally released the official trailer of Loki's upcoming series, and here's everything you need to know.
Release Date: June 11, 2021
Loki's TV series will premiere on June 11, 2021, on Disney+. It is envisioned to be a miniseries with six episodes in total.
The show was initially planned to release in the spring of 2021 but has been pushed back from its original May release date by a month.
Production for 'Loki' began in January 2020 and was halted shortly due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The cast and crew were able to return to production by September 2020 and wrapped up in December.
The show's official synopsis follows the god of mischief as he "pops up throughout human history as [an] unlikely influencer on historical events."
You might be confused why Loki is getting his TV show after he seemingly died in 'Avengers: Infinity War.' The series stars a version of Loki from the 'Avengers: Endgame' timeline where he escaped imprisonment with the Tesseract, allowing him to interfere with human history with his means of time travel.
This set-up has been confirmed by multiple trailers and teasers. Albeit, Loki gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority, an organization that protects the timeline.
The latest trailer shows the agency asking Loki for help in restoring reality after Loki broke it when he vanished during the Endgame timeline. Of course, knowing Loki, he'll probably escape from the TVA and wreak havoc of his own.
Judge Renslayer might be the only force who could stop Loki. Renslayer is presumed to be the love interest and nemesis of Kang the Conqueror, the time-traveling villain who will emerge in 'Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania'.
Tom Hiddleston is reprising his MCU role as Loki, the leading character of the upcoming series. Owen Wilson has been confirmed to take part in the cast list back in 2020. He will portray Mobius M. Mobius, the TVA agent who negotiates with Loki.
British actress Sophia Di Martino is also confirmed to join the upcoming series. She is assumed to play the female version of Loki. Gugu Mbatha-Raw will star as Judge Renslayer (aka, Ravonna Renslayer), together with Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15.
Cailey Fleming, Sasha Lane, Erika Coleman, Richard E. Grant have also been confirmed to be part of the cast members in yet-to-be-disclosed roles.
There are also rumors that the series will introduce Sera, who would be MCU's first transgender character. We will keep an eye on this rumor.
