After the end of Marvel’s Phase 3, the recently announced it’s streaming service, Disney+ and Phase 4 is in talks.
Officially, there’s no confirmed list of movies and Series that will be featured either on Disney+ or releasing in theaters. Like always, rumors and theories are welcomed by media with any little clue.
This time we’ve got a first look at one of the shows Marvel Studios is making for the streaming subscription service.
First Look of Loki Series
In the month of April, Marvel Studios during the Disney Investor Meeting discussed some details about the new shows coming to Disney+.
During that meeting, the logo for the Marvel Loki series and a piece of concept art from the show was revealed.
That was initially only for the eyes of Disney’s investors, but now an image from the event has revealed Kevin Feige standing in front of the Loki series first look, and you can check it out below.
Kevin Feige is in focus, but behind him is the concept art from the Loki series, and you’ll notice that Tom Hiddleston is not on Asgard or any location that he’s been before. In fact, judging by the Jaws marquee in the background, it looks like he’s in 1975.
Plus, we’re not even sure if he’s in the United States or not, and since Jaws didn’t open in Great Britain until December of 1975, it could easily be the following year over there.
The rest of the imagery (via Disney) is clearly 1970s style, from the fashion to the cars.
But it’s unclear about his doing in that time. There aren’t any significant moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that happened in the mid-1970s.
Tony Stark and Steve Rogers travel back to 1970 in Avengers: Endgame after Loki steals the Time Stone and escapes with it during the Battle of New York in 2012, but that doesn’t give us a reason for Loki to be in 1975 or later.
Theories Ahead of Loki’s Series
Previously we heard the Loki series would take the character back to certain moments in human history “as an unlikely influencer on historical events.” Maybe he convinces Sony to release Betamax tapes as a joke so that VHS can flourish. We don’t know! The possibilities are endless.
All kidding aside, this does make us wonder exactly what Loki will be doing throughout this series.
He might be influencing events in human history while traversing through time. Loki doesn’t do anything unless he somehow benefits from it, so there has to be something more at play here. Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon.
Rick & Morty writer Michael Waldron wrote the pilot for Loki and will serve as showrunner and executive producer.
The series will live on the Disney streaming service alongside fellow live-action Marvel series WandaVision and The Falcon and Winter Soldier—which might just be a Captain America show after the events of Endgame—plus Star Wars series like The Mandalorian and a Rogue One prequel. Plus, a True Lies series, because sure!
