It seems 2021 is shaping up to be a banner year for Marvel fans—especially those with a Disney+ account. After the release of the acclaimed series WandaVision at the beginning of the year and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier last month, Disney is already stoking fan excitement for another Marvel product: Loki, a new series that follows the God of Mischief and stars Tom Hiddleston in the lead role.
The series takes place in the aftermath of the events of Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel blockbuster from 2019. Loki’s back, and now he’s tasked with undoing the damage to time (mainly, creating alternate universes) that he caused by using the Tesseract.
Although details on potential plotlines are sparse, the matchup between Hiddleston’s Loki and Wilson’s Mobius looks like it’ll be very funny and entertaining, and the show will give fans a chance to focus some very compelling characters in the MCU. Time travel, alternate universes, and plenty of action—there’s a lot to look forward to with this show.
Mobius plans to use Loki’s powers of deception to fix the timeline, but those same powers make him a slippery ally. It’s also clear that Loki, as usual, has his own agenda—and he plans on following it
The data and trends shared by TV Time indicate that the Loki show has substantially more pre-release buzz than Marvel’s first two series, suggesting that it will become the most popular MCU series prior to its June release.
From serving as the chief villain of the Avengers’ first outing all the way to being redeemed, Loki had a very interesting journey throughout the Infinity Saga. Given the character’s shocking death at the hands of Thanos during Avengers: Infinity War, many fans expected that it was the end of the character’s time in the MCU.
At this rate, as the debut of Loki inches closer, it’s reasonable to assume that the excitement from fans will be higher, thus boosting these numbers. Whatever the case, all will be revealed when the Tom Hiddleston-starring Loki premieres on Disney+ on June 11, 2021.
