The God of Mischief is back, and this time, with his own series! The trailer for Loki, Marvel’s original series which will debut on Disney+ Hotstar on June 11, is out. Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki, the Prince of Asgard, Odinson, the rightful heir of Jotunheim, who has disrupted the chain of reality after stealing the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame.

Loki follows the adventures of MCU’s favourite villainous character, imprisoned by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) for having meddled with timelines. Loki’s captor, Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson), reminds him that his notorious theft has broken the fabric of reality. Now, he must help the TVA bring things back to normal. But why would the TVA need Loki, who has a reputation for leaning towards the side of evil, to help them? Well, Mobius clears that right up--they need his “unique Loki perspective”.

The trailer is packed with snatches of action and witty banter between Loki and Mobius and reveals glimpses of Loki’s attempt to contain the chaos he has created. A return to Asgard, a new power getting unleashed, and an exploration of the divergent timelines of Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected to be a part of the series. Loki, set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, in which the Avengers are on a quest to collect Infinity Stones and save humanity, has set high expectations with its trailer among fans.

Though Loki’s history in MCU makes it unlikely for him to emerge entirely as a hero, this series might feature him trying to step out of the shadow of his brother Thor and assist the TVA set things right in a fashion that’s not contrary to the inherent goodness of his brother. Loki is Marvel’s first series to put emphasis on a villainous character and is expected to explore his backstory, adding more depth to his character. The six episodes of Loki will also include characters played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant. The series is directed by Kate Herron.
