What is Loki about?
Viewers join villain Loki as he continues his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place set after the events of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame.
Despite his status as a villain, Loki has long been one of the most popular characters within the franchise.
Hiddleston played the character in a handful of the franchise’s films, including all three “Thor” films, 2012’s “The Avengers,” and 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”
The character operated as the main villain in the first “Thor” film and “The Avengers.
The writers behind the series have taken great lengths to keep much of the details surrounding the plot under wraps, but the trailer reveals how Loki had escaped captivity only to end up captured and detained by another organization.
Loki appears to have been caught by the TVA, which is known as the Time Variance Authority in Marvel comics.
The trailer doesn’t go as far to reveal what Loki’s intentions are, but does feature a clip where he can be heard proclaiming that Heimdall (who died in “Avengers: Infinity War”) and Thor “better be ready.”Owen Wilson stars alongside Hiddleston[/caption]
