With Disney+ and Marvel Studios now having officially unleashed the Tom Hiddleston-starring Loki onto streaming screens around the world, viewers have gotten a bit of a clearer picture of exactly where the God of Mischief went wrong and how the Time Variance Authority and TVA Agent Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) plan on using him to make things right. But we can't shake this feeling that as much as we know that Loki has an Ace or three up his sleeves, there are some serious twists-n-turns ready to come into play (WandaVision conditioned us to think this way). But for now, we're proud to present this week's recipient of the key art character profile poster high honor, Tara Strong's Miss Minutes- TVA's animated anthropomorphic clock/mascot (and possibly more?).
Here's a look back at Gugu Mbatha-Raw's thoughts on TVA Judge Ravonna Lexus Renslayer:
In this previously-released featurette, Wilson jokes about the "other offers" he had to be a part of the MCU before offering some intel on what the TVA agent is all about- as well as what Hiddleston's "Loki Lectures" were like:
Here's a look behind the scenes at how all the mischief came together, with Hiddleston, Wilson, Mbatha-Raw, and director & executive producer Kate Herron (Sex Education) offer some background intel on who you need to know and why while also explaining why Loki is unlike anything Marvel Studios has done before.
For 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:
Now here's a look back at the preview released during the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards:
In an interview with Empire, Hiddleston teased that there is a lot that viewers could learn about the 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?"
Premiering on June 9 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.
