With the launch of Disney+ in full swing, fans have been busy exploring the streaming platform and a special MCU feature was released alongside the launch in the form of Expanding the Universe. And this certainly didn’t disappoint. It showed several teases of the different MCU Disney+ shows including the Tom Hiddleston-led Loki series. During the MCU feature, Producer Stephen Broussard confirmed that time travel exists in the show and it is set to play a huge role.
There’s a huge time-travel component. There will be a man on the run quality to it and we get the chance to explore more human sides of Loki.
The time-travel component has long been teased ever since the announcement of the series. Now that it has been confirmed, it is going to be intriguing how he will be able to do so given that he only has the Tesseract in his possession. The series depicts Loki as a “man on the run” and the reason behind could be from the time travel shenanigans that the God of Mischief will cause. In addition to that, wielding an Infinity Stone throughout the course of history could serve as a beacon for different villains and it would certainly make him a primary target.
Meanwhile, producer Kevin Wright also teased the struggles of Loki in the series and it will be interesting to see how certain experiences in the series will change him in different ways.
We’re finally going to see him on his backfoot. This is him being put in a position where he doesn’t have all the answers and where he’s been thrown a curveball by life.
It is already a given that the Loki that we follow from this series will be a different one than the Loki that we followed from the movies that experienced different adventures and connections with his brother, Thor. Fans can finally get to see him on his own as a lone wolf looking for a purpose. It has been recently confirmed that the series will tie into 2021’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and it is seemingly leaning towards the fact that the time-displaced Loki will eventually hop into the main timeline of the MCU. It is just a question of how and why.
