What I’m Loving Right Now: Loki
What’s better than one Loki? The answer is simple…infinite Lokis and that’s exactly what you get – as well as a load of mischief – in the Loki TV series.
Loki happens to be my favourite Marvel character and who doesn’t love Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of this anti-hero in the Avengers movies? I have to say this series was a relief to me after what happened to Loki in Avengers: Infinity War. ***Avengers spoiler alert*** for anyone who hasn’t seen Infinity War – and if you haven’t, do it now! – in the opening minutes of that film, super villain, Thanos, crushes Loki’s neck and kills him. Needless to say there was much fist shaking from me at the screen. I barely made it through the rest of the movie.
Anyway it seems that there’s a lot of love out there for the God of Mischief so a storyline was developed to give Loki a reprieve – spawning the Disney+ TV series.
Loki takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame when Loki steals the Tesseract. Loki is detained by the officious and mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA), a bureaucratic institution that exists outside of time and space and must monitor the timeline for any “variants”. Loki it seems has upset the timeline and is given a choice by TVA agent Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) to be executed or help them stop a greater threat to the timeline – another Loki variant, Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino).
Loki travels through time encountering even more of his variants and inevitably finds himself at the centre of chaos and a mission to find out who really is behind the TVA.
Loki is loads of fun with a stellar cast, I was just disappointed there weren’t more episodes. Then good news is that there will be a season 2. Watch Loki now on Disney+.
