Loki Slated for May 2021 Premiere Date in First Trailer!
It’s been one of the most anticipated series since its announcement in September 2018 and now Marvel has unveiled the first trailer for the Loki Marvel Cinematic Universe spin-off series that has also confirmed a May 2021 premiere on Disney+! The trailer can be viewed below!
Loki will feature the return of Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston as the fan-favorite mischievous titular villain. Hiddleston last portrayed the God of Mischief in last year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, where he successfully had stolen the Tesseract during Iron Man and Ant Man’s failed attempt to retrieve it. Joining Hiddleston are MCU newcomers Sophia Di Martino (Yesterday, Flowers, Into the Badlands), Oscar nominee Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero), Cailey Fleming (The Walking Dead), and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) with Di Martino rumored to play Lady Loki.
Kevin Feige previously shared that the series along with Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany’s WandaVision will tie into Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, he didn’t confirm whether or not Hiddleston will also be making an appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel.
Rick and Morty veteran Michael Waldron is writing the series, which also recently recruited Kate Herron as a director. Hiddleston has previously teased that fans will see his character use the Tesseract to cause more trouble. According to rumors, viewers will follow Loki as he travels through time and leaves his mark on various historical events. Plus, the series will reportedly have wide-ranging effects on the larger MCU.
Loki is expected to premiere on Disney+ in spring 2021.
