Marvel fans breathed a sigh of relief when they saw Loki in another timeline in Avengers: Endgame. The God Of Mischief has escaped with the Tesseract, and now the new upcoming Disney+ series will show exactly what happened to Loki, who was actually killed in Infinity War.
In the new trailer for the show, we see him being arrested by Agent Michael M Mobius (Owen Wilson) and the Time Variance Authority, for his crimes against the main timeline. This “Variant Loki” is supposed to help Agent Mobius and the TVA repair all the damage caused in the wake of his failed invasion of Earth in 2012’s The Avengers. has been smashed after Thor: The Dark World, Ragnarok, and Infinity War.
In an interview with TV Insider, Tom Hiddleston, who has played the character for over a decade, explains the complicated timelines. “This Loki is the Loki who lost the battle of New York at the end of the first Avengers movie. This is the Loki who ran through the story of that first Avengers movie. He arrived on Earth, he had the Tesseract, he was captured by SHIELD and imprisoned and interrogated a lot by Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, and he invites an alien army to attack the city of Manhattan and is defeated by the assembled Avengers,” Hiddleston explained.
“He has been arrested and taken from Stark Tower to Central Park. But as you can see in Avengers: Endgame, the Avengers from (2023) went back in time to 2012 to change things up.” In Avengers: Endgame, we saw how the evil Hulk created a distraction, which led to Loki escaping with the Tesseract. “Where he goes next is where he starts in Loki,” Hiddleston added.
Hiddleston further explains, “I think what’s really interesting is that the public in general has a better perspective on Loki than Loki. Because the public has seen the events of The Dark World and Ragnarok and Infinity War and Endgame, and this is a Loki who doesn’t have that self-awareness. He has not been on this arc of redemption and catharsis, and when he was apprehended by the TVA, he is a very confused and destabilized being. He’s out of his comfort zone, a fish in water, and he’s not happy about that.”
Marvel’s Loki premieres on Disney+ Hotstar on June 9.
