As is always the case in a preview for a Marvel project, the just released trailer for Loki tells a clear story – and also includes more obscure nuggets designed to empower those familiar with Marvel comic books. The new spot works beautifully for those unfamiliar with the source material: a fun jaunt through time and sci-fi bureaucracy with the most lovable rake in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Plus Owen WilsonWhat’s not to love? But take a closer look, and the video also has a big tease about what’s to come.
Remember that the Loki Tom Hiddleston plays in this show isn’t the one who traveled all the way through the MCU, healed his relationship with his brother, and gotten to the bright side. He has not yet become the Loki we saw Thor: The Dark World and Thor: Ragnarok This one Loki seized the tesseract in the chaos of a time robbery Avengers: Endgame, and hit from its own timeline around the end of the original Avengers movie. Mess with the timeline like that exactly which got Loki in trouble with the Time Variance Authority, aka the paperwork-heavy institution that Owen Wilson’s Mobius M. Mobius works for.
That (somewhat confusing) premise power explain this rule Gugu Mbatha-RawJudge Renslayer: “Do you really believe in this Loki variant?” But fans of the comic books know there is even more potential in that line.
There are one little Loki variants in the comic books, including Lady Loki and Kid LokiRumor has it that both will also appear in this new show. In fact, one figure that appears in the trailer – someone many fans think he is Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow – is probably Lady Loki herself. Aren’t these Lokis a cute couple?
