Mark your calendars for May 2021, Loki fans—our time has come.
Disney+ has finally released the much-anticipated teaser trailer for the upcoming Loki series in which our conflicted god of mischief has a completely different storyline than what we originally witnessed at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War. That is, he’s quite emphatically not dead.
In this sneak peek at Marvel’s first crime thriller, Loki does exactly what fans predicted after we saw him during a “flashback” in Avengers: Endgame wherein he steals the tesseract: he winds up in an alternate timeline alive and well.
Although the majority of the trailer is action-packed shots that don’t reveal much plot, we do know that Loki will be facing off against the Time Variance Authority…and possibly working for them as an agent. We also see promising and intriguing flashes of what appear to be Natasha on Vormir, Owen Wilson as an unnamed TVA employee, and Loki in his famous outfit from the 2016 “Vote Loki” comic.
Needless to say, Loki might break the internet today, and I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised. Thanks, Tom Hiddleston.
