He’s Machiavellian, manipulative and irresistibly snarky. The God of Mischief has arrived on Disney+ in Loki, the latest Marvel series that has come storming in, ready to thrill fans of the MCU yet again.

Released on June 9th, Loki follows the acclaimed WandaVision and the frenetic The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, giving us a fresh, original show that will surprise even experts of the superhero franchise. Who could have imagined Thor’s egomaniacal stepbrother cooperating with the Time-Keepers? Loki has come to surprise us… and he more than succeeds.

From God of Mischief to Prisoner of Time

The series starts in 2012, right when Loki (Tom Hiddlestone) manages to escape after picking up the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. Little could he imagine that his final trick would go awry seconds later when he fell prisoner of the Time Variance Authority (TVA), an agency tasked with preserving the Sacred Timeline and preventing any changes from threatening the course of history. And, as we’ll learn in the first episode, there are beings called Variants whose actions generate parallel timelines with the potential to end reality as we know it.

Preserving the Sacred Timeline

Stripped of his greatness – but with his ego and sharp tongue intact – Loki will be forced to collaborate with Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson), an agent of the Time Variance Authority tasked with capturing high-level Variants. They’ll begin a relationship of convenience with all the dynamics of the greatest buddy movies, where Mobius’ rational mind and Loki’s twisted intelligence will unite to hunt down the most dangerous Variant. But teaming up with the God of Mischief isn’t easy, and the shadow of betrayal will loom at all times, but… who’s really manipulating whom?

How many episodes does Loki have?

Loki has a total of 6 episodes of 45-51 minutes that you can watch on the following days:

Episode 1: June 9th.

Episode 2: June 16th.

Episode 3: June 23rd.

Episode 4: June 30th.

Episode 5: July 7th.

A must-see series for Marvel fans

Refreshing, entertaining and hilarious, Loki has arrived on Disney+ promising to be the best Marvel series yet. While it’s still too soon to know what direction the plot will take, we like what we’ve seen so far… a lot. Don’t miss the charismatic God of Mischief’s adventures through time!
