Loki will feature the return of Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston as the fan-favorite mischievous titular villain. The character was last seen in Avengers: Endgame, where he successfully had stolen the Tesseract during Iron Man and Ant-Man’s failed attempt to retrieve it. Because of this, the God of Mischief has been arrested by the Time Variance Authority, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, due to the damage he had done with the timeline. Now, he must willingly work with the TVA in order to fix the reality he broke or else face deletion from existence.
The series will also be introducing new characters to the MCU, including Sophia Di Martino (Yesterday, Flowers, Into the Badlands), Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero), Cailey Fleming (The Walking Dead), and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), Sasha Lane (American Honey) and Wunmi Mosaku (Lovecraft Country).
The series is led by executive producer and head writer Michael Waldron (Rick and Morty), who is also the scribe for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Executive producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’ Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, and Kate Herron, who is also set as the director.
Loki is scheduled to make its debut on June 11, exclusively on Disney+.
