New Image From Loki Finds The Trickster God In Big Trouble

Poor Loki — he just can't seem to keep himself out of trouble no matter what time stream he goes into. 

While the trickster god played by Tom Hiddleston met an untimely end at the hands of Thanos (Josh Brolin) in "Avengers: Endgame," plenty of fans knew it wouldn't be the last time we'd see the brother of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) get into various mishaps. After all, you just can't keep a good villain-turned-hero down for long. 

Those suspicions were confirmed when it was revealed that Loki would be getting his very own series on Disney+. Following up the trippy, sitcom-fueled ride of "WandaVision" and the powerful social commentary of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" isn't an easy task, but by the looks of the "Loki" trailers we've seen so far, this is going to be one adventure to remember. Marvel's done a keen job so far of keeping its cards close to its chest and not revealing too much about its new shows before they come out, and "Loki" is no exception. However, a new image and rundown courtesy of Entertainment Weekly gives us a better idea of what kind of hijinks we can expect this time around. 

Loki isn't getting along with the Time Variance Authority

Not even the Avengers could hold Loki down for good in "Endgame," as evidenced by the fact he was able to get his hands on the Tesseract and zip away. With "Loki" coming to Disney+ in June, we're finally seeing what this new version of Loki was up to after his grand escape. Thanks to a new image presented exclusively by Entertainment Weekly, we know Loki's right back where he started: in confinement. 

From the series' trailers and the presence of Mobius M. Mobius, played by Owen Wilson, we know the Time Variance Authority will factor heavily into the plot of "Loki." As far as we understand at present, the TVA apprehends the "variant" Loki and sends him on various missions throughout timelines to rectify inconsistencies. Time travel was introduced as a concept within the Marvel Cinematic Universe with "Avengers: Endgame," but it looks like "Loki" will go all in on the sci-fi trope and have plenty of fun with it.

"The TVA is just an entirely new world [with] a new cast of characters, and that's what felt most exciting about the show: building a new corner of the MCU," the show's head writer Michael Waldron told EW. We've seen the cosmic, magic, and technologically-advanced sides of the MCU, but now that Loki's essentially becoming the universe's version of Doctor Who, it just goes to show how many more stories can take place with the Marvel films and TV shows.

"Loki" is set to premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, June 9.
