Following last Wednesday’s series debut on Disney+, Marvel Studios has released a new Loki featurette for their newest MCU series, which gives the spotlight to Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Ravonna Renslayer, who was briefly introduced in the first episode. The video, which you can check out below, features some new footage from the upcoming episodes, highlighting Judge Renslayer in action.
The new MCU character is a high-ranking judge in the Time Variance Authority, who has more to her than meets the eye. In the comics, Ravonna Renslayer has a romantic connection with Marvel villain Kang the Conqueror, who is also set to make his live-action debut in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and will be portrayed by Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors.
Loki follows Tom Hiddleston’s fan-favorite God of Mischief as he gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority, after his escape with the Tesseract during Avengers: Endgame. The TVA, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, arrested him due to the damage he had done with the timeline. Now, he must willingly work with the TVA in order to fix the reality he broke or else face deletion from existence.
Check out the featurette below:
Joining Hiddleston are MCU newcomers Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cailey Fleming, and Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane and Wunmi Mosaku.
Loki is executive produced and directed by Kate Herron from a screenplay coming from head writer Michael Waldron (Rick and Morty). Waldron is also the scribe for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which Loki will reportedly have ties into just like with WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The first episode is now available for streaming on Disney+, with new episodes streaming every Wednesday through July 14.
