While Loki might be permanently gone in the main MCU timeline, it looks like we haven’t seen the last of him. Despite being killed by Thanos back in Infinity War, everyone’s favorite trickster god made a return in Endgame during the Avengers’ time heist, which saw Tony Stark, Ant-Man, Captain America, and Hulk travel back to 2012 in the midst of the Chitauri invasion in New York City.
Unfortunately, chaos broke out during an attempt to retrieve the Space Stone, and in the ensuing confusion, Loki was able to escape from the custody of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ended up teleporting away with the Tesseract. However, as you’re probably aware, we haven’t seen the last of him.
Actor Tom Hiddleston is set to reprise his role in the upcoming Disney Plus series, and it looks like it’ll follow the version of Loki who escaped during the aforementioned heist. Now, some new intel has surfaced indicating that the show will focus on time travel and alternate realities.
As detailed by Jeremy Conrad of MCU Cosmic, his production sources say the Tesseract plays a large role in the series and that Loki himself will be traveling through time and space, changing historical events along the way. Of course, these rumors haven’t been confirmed just yet, but MCU Cosmic is very reliable and their intel seems to jive with a promotional image from the show, which sees Loki walking through the streets of New York City all the way back in 1975.
In any case, with Disney Plus set to launch later this year, we’re hoping that Marvel Studios will shed some light on the project in the near future. Unfortunately, Loki won’t be airing until the first half of 2021, so we definitely have some waiting to do, but maybe later this month at D23 they’ll open up on it a bit.
