Marvel Studios has released the new trailer for Loki, his third Disney + streaming series. Its release follows the debut of the series’ first poster in March. The show sees Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the brother of Thor, the Asgardian god of mischief. This Loki is the alternate timeline version created by the Avengers Infinity Stones heist in Avengers Endgame, who used the Tesseract to escape custody. Michael Waldron created the series for Marvel and is the lead writer. Kate Herron directs the six-episode season. The show also stars Owen Wilson as Time Variance Authority agent Mobius M. Mobius, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane, and Erika Coleman.
According to the official synopsis, “In Marvel Studios’ Loki, the fickle villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) reprises his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of Avengers Endgame. Kate Herron directs and Michael Waldron is the lead writer. Debuts on Disney + on June 11, 2021. “

While the above glimpses and conversations about the show imply that time travel will be a major factor in Loki, little is known about the show’s plot. Visual effects supervisor Brad Parker hinted in an interview that fans should expect the unexpected.
“Well that’s all I can say, it’s a crazy ride! That’s another project that will defy expectations in so many ways. It’s been a lot of fun,” Parker told Comic Book Movie. “It’s been on my hit list to work on a Marvel project, and Loki is great. He’s great, and there are so many amazing things that are going to happen in every episode. I can’t wait for people to see it. It’s a lot of hard work. We are working hard to make this the best it can be, and I think people will be excited when they see it.
“It’s been pretty good in that regard,” Parker continued, referring to the show’s budget. “It’s a completely different creative exercise when you have more resources, but the appetite for images is on such a huge scale in the visual effects aspect of things, so it’s a challenge in its own right!”
