With Disney+ and Marvel Studios' Loki ready to work its magic to claim Wednesdays as its own (at least for six episodes) beginning next month, it's pretty clear what's going on with Tom Hiddleston's Prince of Asgard. He made a mess of the timeline so now he's going to (in)voluntarily help Owen Wilson's TVA Agent Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw's TVA Judge Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, and Wunmi Mosaku's Hunter B-15 set it right. But even with Time being the TVA's specialty, we're still hoping they've done their homework so they know exactly who (and what) they're dealing with. But just in case they need a little help, Marvel Studios and Disney+ are offering them (and viewers) a look back at Loki's life in the MCU before getting his own live-action series run.
So for both a look back at some of The God of Mischief's more memorable moments (though there might be some he would prefer to forget) as well as a brief timeline to just how screwed up things have gotten, check out the clip below:
Here's a look at the newest teaser for Disney+ and Marvel Studios' Loki, set to kick off its six-episode run on Wednesday, June 9:
In the teaser "Clocks," Loki's time for glory is now… but the clock keeps ticking and time waits for no man- or god:
Here's a look at why The God of Mischief shouldn't be taking Mobius and the TVA for granted (because they're definitely not approaching him the same way):
Now here's a look back at the preview released during the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards: followed by a previously-released teaser:
In an interview with Empire, Hiddleston teased that there is a lot that viewers could learn about the upcoming series by taking a close look at the series logo. "I want to preserve the freshness of the show for when it emerges, but something to think about is the [show's] logo, which seems to refresh and restore," Hiddleston teased. "The font of how Loki is spelled out seems to keep changing shape. Loki is the quintessential shapeshifter. His mercurial nature is that you don't know whether, across the MCU, he's a hero or a villain or an anti-hero. You don't know whether you can trust him. He literally and physically changes shape into an Asgardian guard, or into Captain America repeatedly. Thor talks about how he could change into a snake."
For Hiddleston, that logo speaks to the heart of one of the show's main themes. "I think that shapeshifting logo might give you an idea that Loki, the show, is about identity, and about integrating the disparate fragments of the many selves that he can be, and perhaps the many selves that we are," Hiddleston explained. "I thought it was very exciting because I've always found Loki a very complex construct. Who is this character who can wear so many masks, and changes shape, and seems to change his external feeling on a sixpence?"
Set to hit the streaming service on June 11 with Waldron leading the writing team and executive-producing, and Kate Herron (Sex Education) directing and executive producing, the series finds Hiddleston's God of Mischief on the run and on a mission during his unexpected, time-traveling walkabout. Joining Hiddleston and Wilson on the series are Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, Sophia Di Martino, Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane, Erika Coleman, and Eugene Cordero.
