Loki is a movie we all found a little unprecedented. Who couldn’t? We have tons of movies coming up. It’s been far too long since we’ve seen Loki. So why a movie now? Why a trailer now? Well, we got one. So now is a good of time as any to dissect it. Let’s see what we can find!
To start off, let’s remember that Loki was definitely killed off during Avengers Infinity War. However, time shenanigans led to past versions of him escaping during Avengers: Endgame. So now we know: he’s officially alive. So what we’ll be seeing in this movie is how is escaped, where he escaped, and who he has been captured by this time.
Turns out the people he was taken by are the Time Variance Authority. These guys make sure time stays the way it was supposed to. Obviously, Loki cheated death here, and these guys who monitor the Marvel Multiverse have something to say about it. Here’s what we know from the trailer so far. (If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, skip to the end of this article: we got you covered.)
1 Loki Lost the Tesseract
Yep, the plot really does thicken as soon as the trailer starts. It’s obvious immediately that Loki doesn’t have the Tesseract. So, with that, he can’t teleport anymore. Besides, right now, the status of all the Infinity Stones is a little uncertain. Time travel does that to a concept.
2 We see where Loki went
It appears Loki isn’t in New York City anymore. Which is a good thing for us, bad thing for Loki. From the context of the trailer, it seems he has landed in the Gobi Desert. This would be near Mongolia and Northern China.
3 He is taken into the Time Variance Authority
As if this isn’t bad enough, we can tell he’s got bigger problem. The time-police are onto him. Yep, you heard that right. Marvel has it’s own set of time-police. (Wonder why they aren’t on all the Avengers’ for the entirety of Endgame? Maybe they’re scared?) However, instead of leaving Loki to rot in a cell or just kill him, they actually want to hire him. This is where the movie, just plainly gets more interesting. It’s something I can’t wait to see next year: hopefully in theaters.
