After stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers : Endgame (2019), Loki is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA) organization and their Time-Keepers, and is forced to fix several timelines he broke while traveling through time altering human history with the Tesseract, ending up trapped in his own Crime Thriller.
Cast and Characters
Tom Hiddleston as Loki :
A time variant of Thor’s adoptive brother and god of mischief, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name. This version of Loki created a new timeline in Avengers Endgame (2019) beginning in 2012, so he has not gone through the events of Thor : The Dark World (2013) or Thor : Ragnarok (2017) which “reformed” the previously villainous character before his death in Avengers : Infinity War (2018).
Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius :
A member of the Time Variance Authority (TVA), a police organization that monitors the timeline and multiverse. Hiddleston helped Wilson prepare for the role, explaining and showing him moments from the MCU, which Wilson felt was useful for him in the moments when Mobius is interviewing Loki. Mobius’s look in the series is meant to resemble Marvel Comics editor Mark Gruenwald who was Marvel’s “top continuity expert”; in the comics each member of the TVA was meant to be a clone of Gruenwald.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer:
A member of the TVA who serves as one of its judges.
Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15: A member of the TVA.
Loki is scheduled to premiere on June 11, 2021, and will consist of six episodes. It will be part of Phase Four of the MCU. A second season is in development.
