Is it just us or you, too, feel the crazy buzz around super
villains? Just a few days after DC dropped a trailer for the sequel of Suicide
Squad, Marvel made a comeback with a brand new trailer for upcoming Disney
series on our very own ‘Puny God’ – oops, we mean Loki!
Check mate, DC! Guess you’re not the only one having crazy yet
super fun villains in the universe: we have got Loki, and he’s all set to come
back to our screens!
Disney’s upcoming series is surely going to be a great treat
for Marvel Fans. The latest extended-version trailer for Loki lays out some
interesting details about what to expect from Tom Hiddleston’s very first
standalone venture as Marvel’s most mischievous and second-most charming
Apparently, Loki’s weird obsession with the Tesseract – a
glowing blue box hiding one of the infinity stones – has messed up the reality
timeline pretty bad!
By bad we mean “opening up a bunch of alternate realities”
Anyways, let’s come to the trailer now. Unexpectedly, the
trailer gives many clues about the aftermath of Avenger’s Endgame mishaps.
Literally, if Hulk wasn’t asked to take the stairs, this wouldn’t have happened
in the first place.
At least the good news is we’ve got our beloved villain back
(after he had been killed by Thanos in the Infinity War). But here’s the thing:
this show doesn’t follow that selfless original Loki we know and love, but
rather the evil variant created as a consequence of Endgame’s misdoing!
But at least he’s trying to fix up the mess he created by his
“unique Loki perspective” while introducing Marvel’s fans to the Time Variance
Authority and taking us to some weird places in the process. Without any
further dilly-dallying, let’s discuss the major revelations and Easter eggs
from the Loki’s new trailer:

Remember, in the first Avengers movie, Loki attacked the New
York City with the army of alien Chitauri. He was completely thrashed by the
assembled Avengers, but a cryptic snapshot from the trailer suggests otherwise.
In the trailer, Loki seems to have arrived in an alternate
reality where he has won the war. You can see the devastated New York at the
back, with the iconic Stark power completely wrecked in the background.

Throughout the Marvel movies, we have seen him teleporting to
places, but we have never seen him doing actual magic. In a fight between the
officers of Time Variance Authority, Loki is seen using his magical power
against them, throwing a green fire. This seems to be the display of his
inherent Asgardian magic.

In the trailer, Loki is walking through darkened hallways of
what looks like the throne-room of Asgard – the floors, ceiling, and doors of
which have been cracked open by a mysterious glowing purple energy (the same
color of the power stone). As we have seen in the first Guardian of the Galaxy, power stone is responsible for doing such
kind of damage, cracking open people and things whenever it’s held.
got his dagger back!
This is the infamous Loki dagger that he used throughout his
appearances in the Marvel movies. It was the same weapon that got him killed by
Thanos while he was trying to outsmart the Titan.
seen wearing a “vote” pin
According the comic book series called “Vote Loki,” the
mischievous Asgardian apparently ran for U.S presidency with the slogan
“BeLIEve” – pay attention to the “lie” part of the word.
In the trailer, Loki is wearing the same outfit of his comic
meets Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow?
When the first trailer for Loki was released in December, fans
speculated that Black Widow is alive and would probably appear in the series.
She was spotted against the purple backdrop, quite similar to
the planet Vormir, the place where she sacrificed herself in “Endgame” to get
her team the Soul Stone.
But there are other speculations that the silhouette – that
appears to be of Natasha Romanoff – is actually of Sophia Di Martino, the
actress who has been confirmed to play the role of female version of
mischievous God known as Lady Loki.
is the REAL MCU Loki!
Some fans believe that this version of Loki would become the
actual Loki of MCU. The Loki we know and love has died in the Infinity War, and
this version is roaming around alternate realities and time. It’s possible that
this variant of Loki will eventually take its place as his dead predecessor,
allowing the character to continue living in the future MCU.
Oil Company has something to do in the plot of the series
A snapshot from the trailer shows a logo of Roxxcart, a
company possibly owned by or related to Roxxon Corporation. The company’s logo
has appeared several times in the MCU, including the Iron Man movies and other shows such as Netflix’s Daredevil.
These are the major revelations and potential plot-lines we
have discovered from the latest trailer for Loki.
