Since its launch, Disney+ has been on quite the run with its original shows. From “The Mandalorian” to “WandaVision,” the House of Mouse has given fans plenty of new content to enjoy. As time goes on, the number of new shows arriving on the platform will only continue to grow. Disney already has a massive slate of Marvel productions scheduled to arrive in the next few years.
To the surprise of some fans, it appears that the series will contain plenty of time-traveling shenanigans as Mobius (played by Owen Wilson) and Loki work to correct the timeline after the latter’s use of the Tesseract in “Endgame.”
Most movies within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) have a certain feel to them. Fans know what to expect when they sit down to watch an “Avengers” film. However, Marvel’s lineup of TV shows has abandoned that trend to a large degree.
“WandaVision” was a significant departure from the usual, giving viewers a unique experience with every episode. It now appears that “Loki” will also be an exception to the rule.
MCU fans know that there was plenty of time travel going on during the final “Avengers” films, especially around “Endgame.” Of course, in the science fiction world, time travel always comes with consequences.
Enter the Time Variance Authority, a new organization tasked with maintaining the stability of the multiverse. The latest trailer for “Loki” introduces fans to this agency and offers a look at what the title character is tasked with fixing.
Mobius informs Loki that his use of the Tesseract broke reality. He also informs the famous trickster that the agency needs his “unique Loki perspective” to help set things right.
If the trailer for “Loki” has proven anything, it’s that fans know exactly what’s in store for them. Despite being just six episodes, it’s clear that the show will have every bit of quality that fans would expect from a feature film.
The trailer alone shows off stunning visuals, animations, and a wide array of special effects. “Loki” promises to be a thrilling ride that lets Marvel fans get to know one of the most famous antiheroes in existence on a whole new level.
Keeping Hiddleston on board gives the show continuity with the film-based MCU. This is something Marvel has done well with its other shows, “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” so far. Meanwhile, adding Wilson to the party brings an interesting new dynamic that is sure to be entertaining.
“Loki” will arrive on Disney+ on June 11. It appears that the platform will take a weekly episode approach as it has with its other releases. In a sense, returning to an old-school format makes enjoying these tentpole shows a more rewarding experience than binging them in a weekend. It allows the fanbase to digest each episode as it airs and gives us all something to look forward to each week.
