Marvel has released a new Loki trailer and it reveals a little bit more about the upcoming Disney+ series. As you may remember, the God of Mischief bit the proverbial bullet of sorts in Avengers: Infinity War.
However, as Avengers: Endgame centred around a time travelling heist orchestrated by the heroes, it allowed Loki to appear again. But this was not the God of Mischief we have come to know post-Thor: Ragnarok, but the villain who orchestrated the invasion in New York City in the first Avengers film.
As seen in Endgame, Loki absconded with the Tesseract after a botched attempt by the heroes to escape with it. The new Loki trailer kicks off from that moment, bringing us up to speed with the God of Mischief.
Marvel Goes Time Travelling Again
In the Disney+ series, the imperious God of Mischief runs afoul with the bureaucratic TVA (Time Variance Authority). What is the TVA you might ask? Well, they are a bunch of dudes who police the timeline, ensuring that things do not go out of whack.
Unfortunately, Loki absconding with the Tesseract has done exactly that, which puts him in trouble with the timekeepers. Tasked with setting things right, Loki is a fish-out-of-water as he embarks to repair the fractured timeline.
What’s interesting about the new series is that Loki is being used by the TVA for this purpose. He also has a handler for the process, a character named Mobius played by Owen Wilson. It also appears that the series will be jumping into key moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) timeline.
Check out minute 2:06 of the new Loki trailer below and you will see what we mean.
