‘Loki’ Release Date: When Will ‘Loki’ Be Available to Watch on Disney+?
Marvel has some new shows and movies lined up for the next few years. Loki is a new series that will come out this year. In preparation, fans are watching three Loki-centric films, or the Loki trilogy, before the series releases.
There is not much information on what people can expect from the show. Fans have been speculating what Loki will contain as they patiently wait for the release date. After gathering some information, here is what people already know about the series.
Tom Hiddleston is among the cast for ‘Loki’
As fans eagerly wait for the release of Loki, some people may wonder who will star in the show. Tom Hiddleston will return to reprise his role as Loki. After all, casting someone else as the trickster prince would likely displease viewers.
Not to mention, Hiddleston has been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the beginning and loves playing the character.
As for the rest of the cast, the show may not have a large ensemble like the Avengers films. The series has six episodes planned out, and Loki is going to be the main focus. There are a couple of other notable names confirmed for the cast.
Owen Wilson will portray Mobius M. Mobius, who is a member of the Time Variance Authority. Other stars appearing in the show include Richard E. Grant, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Sasha Lane. However, it is unclear what roles they have in the miniseries.
Some fans might look forward to seeing Loki and Thor interact. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that other fan-favorite characters are going to appear. If there is a second season in the future, then the veteran Avengers cast could reprise their roles for a cameo.
‘Loki’ will have a different timeline and Loki
In Avengers: Infinity War, fans witnessed the beloved Loki die. So, the question remains as to when in the timeline the show takes place. Avengers: Endgame features the protagonists going back in time. The plot point leads to the establishment of alternate realities.
Endgame shows 2012 Loki evading capture and fleeing with the Tesseract. The version of Loki that fans got to know is dead, but the Loki series will explore a parallel universe. Loki will be more of a trickster once again. However, the Asgardian prince may go through a new set of challenges and development.
Hiddleston cannot reveal much, but he hints that the meat of the story will be exciting. The actor explains that each challenge will change Loki in different ways. Showrunner Michael Waldron, who has created comedy before, works on the show. So, fans can expect some good laughs from Loki.
‘Loki’ has a confirmed released date
Marvel Studios is set to begin Phase Four of extending the MCU. They will release sequels to existing properties and introduce new characters. Some fan-favorites will get their own spin-offs. Of course, Loki is part of this phase.
Fans have been wondering when they can expect the show’s release. According to TechRadar, the miniseries will arrive in May 2021. However, the exact day is still unknown. More news about the show’s release is likely to get announced closer to May.
Right now, fans only have the information that the trailers give them. May can seem far away for those with burning questions for the character. Hopefully, Loki will explain some of them.
“In the years since Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, which came out this Spring… Two questions I’ve been asked are ‘is Loki really dead?’ and ‘what’s Loki doing with that cube?’ It’s always the cube somehow. And this series will answer both of those questions,” Hiddleston stated.
