We all know that Loki met his fate at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Many fans believed that was the end for the god of mischief in the MCU.
However, when Captain American, Iron Man, and Ant-Man attempted their time heist in “Avengers: Endgame,” things didn’t exactly go as planned. Loki escaped with the Tesseract, leading to a whole new timeline, and inevitably, even more chaos.
This alternate timeline will be explored in the upcoming Disney+ “Loki” series, where Loki will face consequences from the Time Variance Authority (TVA) for his timeline manipulation.
Specific plot details of the series are still unknown, but the trailer indicates that we’ll see Loki and TVA boss Mobius M. Mobius exploring the new realities created by Loki’s Tesseract theft.
Eagle-eyed fans have spotted some plot details revealed in the release of a new Marvel Legends toy, giving MCU enthusiasts a little sneak peek of what “Loki” will entail.
Loki picks up right after the god’s escape in Endgame
The new Loki figure, released as part of the Build-A-Figure line from Marvel Legends, features the god dressed as a member of the Time Variance Authority.
The packaging confirms details of the plot that have been long speculated by fans: “Mere moments after his escape during the events of Avengers: Endgame, Loki is apprehended by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) and arrested for his crimes against the sacred timeline.”
A lot has happened in the MCU since the Battle of New York in 2012, and it will be interesting to see just how different this new reality is from the one we’ve grown to love.
With the reveal that Steve Rogers was able to ultimately get his dance with Peggy Carter in another timeline, we know that the team at Marvel Studios is open to showing us what happens to characters in another dimension.
Will the timeline Loki created eventually include Thanos’ devastating snap? Will Asgard fall just as it did in “Thor: Ragnarok?” Will Tony Stark still create Ultron?
While we’re unsure if the series will answer any of these questions, we can’t wait to see even more time travel shenanigans and watch the MCU grow even more intricate.
