Marvel Studios revealed new details about the upcoming television series based on Loki, which will hit Disney Plus on May 7, 2021.
The last time we saw Loki (in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, that is) was in Avengers: Infinity War, when he was apparently killed by Thanos. However, in Avengers: Endgame, Loki appeared to alter his own fate when he acquired the Tesseract during the Avengers’ botched “time heist” and teleported himself to safety.
“This series will tell you what happened to Loki right after that,” Feige said at the panel.
Walking in to a thunderous applause, Tom Hiddleston took the Hall H stage to set the record straight: the series does not star the reformed Loki we saw in Thor: Ragnarok. Instead, it’s the truly mischievous version seen in The Avengers.
Loki is one of three announced Marvel Cinematic Universe series coming to Disney Plus, joining The Falcon and Winter Soldier and WandaVision. Disney Plus will launch in November; subscriptions to Disney’s new streaming service, which will be home to Marvel, Star Wars, Disney, and Pixar films and original shows, will cost $6.99 monthly or $69.99 annually.
