The God of Asgard will be joined by a few interesting characters in his new Disney series.
Loki is back in the MCU thanks to a mistake the Avengers made during their time travels in Endgame , which allowed him to retrieve the Tesseract and escape Hydra and create a new timeline with different events than what we saw in the movies. .
The Loki series already revealed that we are going to see Thor’s younger brother take on the Time Variation Agency , who “kidnap” the god of mischief after he accidentally changes the story and is forced to correct his own mistakes.
The trailer lets us see Tom Hiddleston being contacted by Owen Wilson , who plays an ATV agent who, apparently, will be in charge of working with Loki along with a team carefully chosen to keep an eye on him and to make sure that things return to normal and that nothing bad happens because of that small change in the events that had already happened before.
We know that in the comics the ATV has a mission to keep the timeline and it is clear that Loki has a lot to correct once the series hits Disney + on June 11 of this year.
But before we start, there are a few characters to understand.
Who are the Loki characters?
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is obviously the protagonist of the story, but he won’t be alone in this adventure through time and space (which even showed us something that looks a lot like DB Cooper in a first trailer).
It is also said that the series will bring back the character of Frigga and that we could have some glimpses of Jane Foster, Thor, Lady Sif, Lady Loki (Sofia Di Martino) and other characters that have been part of Loki’s history within the MCU. , but for now there are a few confirmed that even appeared in the trailer.
Who is Mobius M. Mobius?
Owen Wilson plays Mobius , who in the comics was just an official of the Time Variation Agency, where he was in charge of being attentive to changes in the temporal continuity to correct them if necessary.
Mobius has had contact with the Fantastic 4 and She-Hulk in the past and now it appears that he will be Loki’s main contact and direct boss after he is captured and brought to the agency
Who is Ravona Renslayer?
Gugu Mbata-Raw , whom you surely remember from the best episode of Black Mirror , plays Judge Renslayer , who is one of the most important characters on the ATV, and in the comics she gets to cross paths with Kang, The Conqueror, the rumored villain to appear in the MCU phase 4 movies, in Ant-Man: Quantumania.
For now, not much is known about her role, but the first trailer let us see that she will be part of the team in charge of dealing with Loki and preventing him from escaping again to continue doing his thing.
Who is Hunter B-15?
Wunmi Musaku , protagonist of His House and Lovecraft Country , also appears in the series as Hunter B-15, who appears to be Judge Ravona’s right-hand man and one of those charged with keeping the god of Asgard in check.
Who is Lady Loki?
It is said that Sofia Di Martino’s character could be Loki’s romantic interest in this story and that it will be a version of another universe that Loki will come to during the series, which is different from what happens in the original stories.
In the history of the comics, Loki takes the body of Lady Sif and encloses her spirit in the body of an old woman, allowing him to become Lady Loki to manipulate the Avengers without their noticing, but everything points that the series is going to take a different path and that the new Lady Loki will even have great powers that could turn her into a danger.
