Premium- TV News -Every Major 'Loki' Trailer Tease, From Black Widow To A Return To Asgard
Loki is risen. Despite dying in Avengers: Infinity War, Thor's mischievous brother is alive and well in Disney+'s new Loki trailer. Released on Monday, April 5, the clip is full of time-hopping adventures and Marvel Easter eggs. But underneath all that MCU razzle dazzle are a few key moments that fans are going to want to take a closer look at.
The basic plot of the show is pretty clear — at least, for the MCU. Loki will pick up sometime after Avengers: Endgame, when a botched attempt at retrieving the Tesseract from the Battle of New York (aka Avengers) ended with Loki escaping with the Tesseract in hand. It's unclear how long Loki lasts on the run, but given his classic getup when he arrives at the TVA, Time Variant Authority, in the trailer, it looks like he wasn't free for long. As Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) informs him, when Loki grabbed the Tesseract, he also broke time. And now, he's going to help the TVA fix it.
But, if you look closer at the trailer, you'll notice that not everything is as it seems at the TVA. Just like Loki, this mysterious new authority definitely has something up its sleeve. Let's examine.
What Exactly Did Loki Break?
Mobius tells Loki that he "broke reality" when he grabbed the Tesseract, but did he really? In Endgame, the Avengers believed that they could disrupt the past by grabbing the Infinity Stones, but set the timeline right by putting them back after defeating Thanos. Assuming this is true, then wouldn't taking Loki back to New York with the Tesseract and ensure that he's taken back to Asgard with Loki fix whatever Loki broke? Granted, it's possible that the Avengers didn't understand the fundamentals of time travel when they came up with their plans, but still, it seems odd that the TVA wouldn't be able to set everything right by returning Loki to his arrest after the Battle of New York.
