Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki in the upcoming Disney plus series
The last time we saw the God of Mischief in full force he was being held up by the throat and killed in front of his brother Thor by the Madman Thanos. There is no doubt that a lot of fans were hurt by the fatal ending to such a bitter-sweet character. However in the final Avengers movie you can spot the same god of mischief for a brief while when the present avengers try to regain the infinity stones, particularly the tesseract .
If you were paying attention you’ll remember the scene that unfolds in the lobby leading the tesseract falling into Loki’s hands moments before he teleports himself. That is where the story starts.
Loki Sneak Peek
So Marvel released the very first series of footage from the upcoming show. It shows Loki landing up in a barren desert, where he then comes across some nomadic looking people. The next scene shows him being captive in some sort of Time Prison called the TVA. He is then asked to be a part of history-changing events where the Demigod adds his own taste of mischief.
The trailer is filled with grand universe setting shots and introduces us to a lot of major and minor characters.
Loki release date
Loki is set to hit Disney plus come May 2021. Though the series was expected to come out earlier, Covid-19 certainly caused some unseen problems for the crew. The show will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four. The show’s casting has been very secretive, with the only actor who has a title being Tom Hiddleston himself. Owen Wilson and Gugu Mbatha-Raw have both been cast in what can be only desscribed as a “prominent character”
Richard E Grant, Sasha Lane and Wunmi Mosaku have also been cast in undisclosed roles. You can watch the trailer here or in the box below
