Disney+ have launched their latest Marvel series ‘Loki’ this week, exploring multiple timelines!
Following the success of ‘WandaVision’ and ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ from earlier this year, Marvel fanatics are thrilled with the new release based on the franchise’s favourite villain.
The series follows Loki, brother of Thor, as he causes mischief creating multiple timelines. Due to the happenings of Avengers: Endgame (no spoilers!), it’s now possible for Loki to wreak havoc throughout the multiverse. This doesn’t last long. With the Time Variance Authority (TVA) managing to track his every move, it isn’t long until Loki’s God of Mischief ways catch up with him.
The six episode series will show Loki working with the TVA, to follow a familiar face back through time in order to ‘clip all the branches’ and ensure that only the sacred timeline exists. But is everything as it seems?
The star-studded line up see’s Owen Wilson plays Mobius M. Mobius, who is the one to team up with Loki through the multiverse. Other big names set to make an appearance are Richard E. Grant and Sophia Di Martino. Fans are rumoured to believe that this casting might be for ‘Old Loki’ and ‘Lady Loki’, seeing the main character morph into different forms.
The new series is a great way to explain to viewers how time travel and timelines work in the Marvel world. With the release of ‘Spiderman: No Way Home’ in December and ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to be released next year, fans of the franchise can really wrap their head around the multiverse before both films are due.
