During the grand Investor event hosted by Disney Plus, Marvel Studios has confirmed that they would be releasing Loki in the upcoming year. The series can be watched exclusively on Disney+. In this article, we will discuss when the show will be released, its cast, and other things that Loki has in store for you.
The upcoming Marvel series will feature Tom Hiddleston as the lead actor. He will be characterizing Loki. Penned down by Rick and Morty alum Michael Waldron, the series will be all about Thor’s brother. Loki first appeared on the screen in Thor, which was lauded by the spectators. He was also featured as the central villain or antagonist in the first Avengers movie. Thus, this movie will not showcase a hero’s stories but rather the psychology of a Villain. The trailer was dropped a few days before, and since then, the audience has been making guesses about Loki’s storyline. The movie is currently in filming work as declared by the chief of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige.
Marvel Studios, as the movie’s filming is not yet done, is expected to be released in Mid 2021, in May. The Marvel Universe claims Loki to be the God of Mischief, and it would be exciting to watch him on screen and discern his perspective. The movie has created a buzz on all social media platforms, and it is currently the talk of the town.
Cast: Who all will be featured in Loki?
Now that we know the movie will make its debut in the next year, let us know about its lead cast and supporting actors.
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
As we all know, Tom is going to play the part of Loki. But here’s some information about the key character. Hiddleston is one of those supervillains in the world of Marvel who is admired for his mischievousness. He’s going to star in this TV series and the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. Thus, he would be gracing both of these shows with his presence. Let’s see what turn his life will take in the TV series after sneaking away with the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: End Game.
Owen Wilson as Justin Peace
Wait. What? Is Owen getting a part in one of the Marvel movies? Well, as a matter of fact, yes. Owen Wilson is all set to make his debut in the Marvel Universe with this TV series LoThe The fans have reportedly disclosed his role in the trailer. He will be playing the part of a time-hopping mercenary recognized by the name of Justin Peace.
Just like Owen, Gugu is also excited to make her MCU debut with this series. In a recent interview, she didn’t reveal much about her character. Thus, her role in Loki is still under wraps. But, she applauded the director Kate Herron for always mentoring her.
Despite not being much into graphic novels, the American Honey girl has grabbed a part in the MCU TV series. After working for a hit series, Utopia on Amazon prime, Sasha is excited to make it big on screen again with Loki. There is no information about her role in the series but it is confirmed that she would be playing a side role.
It’s ambiguous if any of the other Marvel stars will be there to grace the series or not. Thus, it is unlikely for us to say if Chris Hemsworth or other actors of Thor would be there in Loki. But, there’s always a possibility!
The plot of Loki as inferred from its Trailer
In the presentation held on Thursday, Kevin Feige displayed the trailer of Loki. In that 2 minutes long clip, it is certain that TVA( Time Variance Authority) has a major part than we assumed. They take the wily brother into custody as he lands in a remote location. Thus, to supervise him, he’s followed by TVA.
The TV series will not feature the same Loki as depicted by Thor: Ragnarok. This might not be very pleasant for some fans. But at least there’s a scene in the trailer in which Loki is shown an incident from Ragnarok which is important for him for his identity development. Now you must be wondering if not that version then which version of Loki will we get to see? Well, if you could remember Endgame, a different version of Loki was depicted. The one who escaped with the Tesseract and was depicted as the antagonist. So, it would be delighted for Tom’s fans to watch his mischievous side on screen again.
