With still over a month until the next Marvel movie release, fans no doubt have binged their way through Wandavision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier. But knowing fans have so many questions still after End Game, and can never get enough of their favorite bad guy – it’s time to learn just what happened to Loki.
We all witnessed him get the tesseract and get away – but that left a huge plot hole in the story right? With the new Disney+ series Loki, we are starting to get answers, but fans are going to end up with a lot more questions as well.
Loki is the god of mischief, and the new series plays right into that. The show follows him as he is captured by the Time Variance Authority after he steals the Tesseract. His changing the timeline isn’t going to be tolerated, and despite what he tries – he has to become a willing participant in fixing what he broke.
The show plays on the very thing that fans love about Loki. Sure, he’s a bad guy, but deep down he’s really not right? Can he actually have a change of heart and do the right thing? or is he going to be make up for his past wrongs? Since the Time Variance Authority has a different way of processing time, we’re still not sure how long he has been there, how long he will be there and If they’re able to reset his timeline – when he will be put back in it – if he will at all.
Now, I’m sure the series will answer some of these questions, or at least we hope so. We were only able to screen the first two episodes and will have to wait to see the rest of it with everyone else. But what we do know, there are some hilarious moments in the show. One that true crime fans are going to love and will have you laughing watching it happen on screen. I’m not sure if that’s actually in the comics, but it was a hilarious moment in a show that has several other good laughs as well.
Will Loki answer all of our questions? We have no idea yet. There is a huge question it brings up about Infinity Stones and some of the outcomes of Endgame – but we’re just speculating some here. We’re excited to watch the rest of this series unfold over the 6 episodes. We’ve still got to warm up to Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, but that can happen over the series as well. It’s not that he’s not good in the role, but it’s more getting used to seeing him in part of the Marvel Universe.
Loki will be on Disney+ starting tomorrow, and it’s set to deliver just what fans have been looking for.
