‘Loki’ On Disney+ Teases Huge Implications For the MCU
Welcome to a whole new reality.
Lokiwill premiere this summer.An official trailer revealed the first episode of Loki will land on Disney+ on June 11, 2021. That gives you plenty of time to rewatch all the MCU films, in order, before we dive in. Don’t pretend you don't want to.The show will follow a different version of the demigod.
Here's where that MCU rewatch is really going to serve you, because things are getting a wee bit sticky. Let’s dive in.First, remember the multiverse? Y’know, the one Jedi Tilda Swinton reveals to Bruce Banner inAvengers: Endgame?“The Infinity Stones create what you experience as the flow of time,” she explains. “Remove one of the stones, and that flow splits,” creating a new, alternate reality.

LokiWhat does all that nonsense mean? To put it simply:Lokiis about the 2012 version of Loki, the demigod who betrayed his brother and family, and unleashed hell on New York City. He hasn’t exactly redeemed himself, to say the least, and he certainly has yet to reckon with Thanos. It's possible the Loki we know is still dead, and this Loki “variant” has an entirely different path set before him.
The show will introduce the Time Variance Authority.Because Loki’s escape with the Tesseract “broke reality,” as Owen Wilson’s character Mobius M. Mobius puts it, the Time Variance Authority is none too happy. These mysterious folks protect what they call “the proper flow of time,” much in the way Stephen Strange and his cohort protect the multiverse. Mobius needs Loki’s help to set things right—but as we know, goodwill doesn’t come naturally to the slippery trickster. There’s no guarantee he won't make an even bigger mess of this new reality.
