The new Marvel shows on Disney + are finally on the way, including Loki, a standalone offshoot for everyone's favorite god of doom. Not only do we finally have some details and clips from the show, but we also got a release date.
While Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige had previously announced this Loki will arrive in May 2021, the release date has since been postponed to June 11th. Interestingly, May 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of Loki's arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; he made his debut in the first Thor Film that was released in May 2011.
The first full-length trailer eventually reveals some of the premises for the series, which until now has largely been a well-kept secret. As we expected, the series starts where we last saw Loki in the main Marvel films. This is not the same version of Loki we first met in Thor and followed through the films. As far as we know, Loki died at the beginning of still in Thanos' hands Avengers: Infinity War. This Loki is one of the alternative timeline versions that appeared during the "Zeitraubes" in Avengers: Endgame. During the Avengers' botched attempt to obtain the Tesseract by going back to the events of " The AvengersThis version of Loki was able to grab the Tesseract and disappear through a wormhole before it could be sent back to Asgard in handcuffs.
Now we know where it ends up after going through this space-time portal: it ends up in the hands of the Time Variance Authority and begins when it is found after a crash landing in an unknown desert. What happens next is less clear. Feige described the show as a "crime thriller," and we see Loki apparently going on multiple missions and dodging mysterious villains, but it's not entirely clear what he's doing or why. On the plus side, we have a lot to theorize for the next few months until the show actually arrives!
