The recent full trailer for the highly-anticipated Loki series gave us our first taste of what to expect from the God of Mischief's Disney+ series. However, the action-packed teaser has given fans more to speculate over now we have more of an idea about the plot.
The series will find Loki freshly imprisoned after escaping with the Tesseract during the time heist in Endgame. However, his new captors need his help as Loki's little jaunt through time broke reality, and the Time Variance Authority is insisting that he puts it right. Naturally, Loki is only too happy to help, which should make his new chums incredibly nervous. In a recent interview, Hiddleston was keen to give as little away as possible while still teasing what sounds like Marvel's most ambitious series to date.
“I want to preserve the freshness of the show for when it emerges, but something to think about is the [show’s] logo, which seems to refresh and restore. The font of how Loki is spelt out seems to keep changing shape. Loki is the quintessential shapeshifter. His mercurial nature is that you don’t know whether, across the MCU, he’s a hero or a villain or an anti-hero. You don’t know whether you can trust him. He literally and physically changes shape into an Asgardian guard, or into Captain America repeatedly. Thor talks about how he could change into a snake.
I think that shapeshifting logo might give you an idea that Loki, the show, is about identity, and about integrating the disparate fragments of the many selves that he can be, and perhaps the many selves that we are. I thought it was very exciting because I’ve always found Loki a very complex construct. Who is this character who can wear so many masks, and changes shape, and seems to change his external feeling on a sixpence?”
Also starring Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E Grant, Loki arrives on Disney+ on June 11. Meanwhile, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier finale hits Disney+ on Friday.
