The brand new Marvel exhibits on Disney+ are lastly on their method, together with Loki, a stand-alone spinoff for everybody’s favourite god of mischief. Not solely can we lastly have some particulars and clips from the present, however we now have a launch date – or, at the least, a launch month!
Though the precise date has but to be introduced, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige introduced on Friday at Disney’s Investor Day that Loki will arrive in Might 2021. It is a symbolic selection, in some methods: Might 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of Loki’s arrival within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, since he made his debut within the first Thor film, which was launched in Might 2011.
The primary full-length trailer lastly reveals a few of the premise for the collection, which has largely been a well-kept secret up till now. As we anticipated, the collection picks up the place we final noticed Loki within the mainline Marvel motion pictures. This is not the identical model of Loki that we first met again in Thor and adopted all through the films; so far as we all know, that Loki nonetheless died at Thanos’s arms at first of Avengers: Infinity Battle. This Loki is likely one of the alternate timeline variations who appeared in the course of the “time heist” in Avengers: Endgame. Through the Avengers’ botched try at getting the Tesseract by going “again” to the occasions of The Avengers, this model of Loki was in a position to seize the Tesseract and vanish by means of a wormhole earlier than he might be despatched again to Asgard in handcuffs.
Now, we all know the place he lands after going by means of that space-time portal: he lands within the arms of the Time Variance Authority, beginning out when he is present in some unknown desert after crash touchdown. What occurs subsequent is much less clear. Feige described the present as a “crime thriller,” and we see glimpses of Loki apparently occurring a number of missions and evading mysterious baddies, however it’s not fairly clear what he is doing or why. On the plus facet, we now have lots to theorize about for the following few months till the present truly arrives!
