In case you’ve missed it, Marvel is already off to a hot start this year, having kicked off its Disney+ originals with WandaVision and soon thereafter following it up with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Both series have received no shortage of critical acclaim, but what lurks on the horizon could prove to be the best one yet.
They’re calling it Loki, and as the title suggests, the series is largely centered around Asgard’s resident God of Mischief (Tom Hiddleston). Set in a post-Avengers: Endgame world, it follows Loki as he’s faced with the consequences of stealing the tesseract, opening a wormhole, and unleashing the Chitauri upon New York City in 2012. Captured by the Time Variance Authority — Marvel’s watchdog of the multiverse — he has no choice but to work alongside Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) in order to fix reality and right his wrongs once and for all. We’ve already seen Loki take on more of a role in the MCU, but this will be the first time he really steps into the spotlight and out of his brother’s shadow. You can catch the series and its mind-bending time travel when it airs on June 11th.
