Loki Series Plot
After stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Loki uses it to travel through time and alter human history and ends up trapped in his own crime thriller.
Loki Exclusive Clip Breakdown
Guess The God of Mischief has returned with something more interesting this time. Loki fandom is going crazy at the moment. We’re loving the vibe (at least we are).
In the beginning of this clip, Loki that gets his hands on the Tesseract teleports from NYC to some desert with a rough landing where he loses the Tesseract and doesn’t have the muzzle on his mouth either.
After that we see that he comes across some people in Mangolian clothing. Not sure which earth Loki has ended up on , could be MCU’s original earth or somewhere else in the Multiverse. So much to figure out. He is then captured by the TVA aka Time Variance Authority.
Which keeps track on many realities across the entire multiverse. There’s an elevator scene where we see Owen Wilson who is playing Mobius M. Mobius , a bureaucrat of the TVA.
Mobius introduces Loki to the TVA and that he knows who Loki is and that he loves to talk. Guess the reason behind getting caught by TVA because of the his accidental time travel? We’ll find out!!
Not sure who the MYSTERIOUS figure is or what it is about. In the scene , the figure appears with a lantern and drops it and attacks TVA operatives. This could be an alternate version of Loki or the main villain of Loki , not sure if it’s the figure that is seen later in the scene in front of TVA’s CCTV monitors.
As you know Black Widow is releasing in May 2021 along with this Loki series , in the clip a women with orange hair is sitting with her back turned is probably that Black Widow is going to make an appearance in this series too.
Loki is then landed into wrecked NYC with we can see the fallen Avengers Tower there too. This is probably the universe where the Avengers failed , seems like things happened differently in the other realties of the multiverse. As they say anything is possible in the multiverse. Loki is D.B. Cooper?
Wow! So if you don’t know who D.B. Cooper, Dan Cooper is the pseudonym of an unidentified man who hijacked a Boeing 727 aircraft in United States airspace between Portland and Seattle on the afternoon of November 24, 1971.
The man purchased his airline ticket using the alias Dan Cooper but, because of a news miscommunication, became known in popular lore as D. B. Cooper. He extorted $200,000 in ransom (equivalent to $1,260,000 in 2019) and parachuted to an uncertain fate.
Despite an extensive manhunt and protracted FBI investigation, the perpetrator has never been located or identified. It remains the only unsolved case of air piracy in commercial aviation history. And then Loki reveals that D.B. Cooper was none other than himself. Very exciting we know!! Gets better after every scene.
At the end Loki is shown running for U.S President with all the badge and everything. This is from one of the comics called ‘Vote Loki’ . And if the series is exploring alternate realities then this might bring on the comic storylines like this one. I wonder why they didn’t name the series ‘Loki’s Wild Adventures’ lol.
The Movie Culture Synopsis
The series takes place after Avengers: Endgame, which saw Loki steal the Tesseract during the 2012 events of The Avengers (2012), which created an alternate timeline from the main MCU films.
In the series, Loki uses the Tesseract to travel through time and alter human history. In August 2019, Herron stated that the series would be “taking Loki to an entirely new part of the MCU” while Waldron said it would “explore the questions we all have: where did Loki go after he picked up the Tesseract? Could Loki ever make a friend? And will the sun ever shine on him again?”
Executive producer Stephen Broussard stated that in addition to the time travel element, the series would have a “man-on-the-run quality to it”.
Waldron also felt the series would explore the character’s “struggle with identity”, adding “over the first 10 years of movies, he’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life, he was adopted and everything and that manifest itself through anger and spite towards his family.”
Waldron added there would be an “unexpected” science fiction quality to the series. According to Feige, the series will tie-into the Phase Four film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022).
Loki will debut on Disney+ in May 2021, and will consist of six episodes. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU.
