Marvel Studios’ and Disney + original series, Loki starring Tom Hiddleston premiered on Wednesday. The series centers around the alternate version of God of Mischief, Loki, after he escaped with Tesseract in the Avengers’ Endgame. Loki’s premiere episode primarily focused on the introduction of Time Variance Authority — an extra-dimensional agency, which is preserving the sacred timeline to prevent multi-dimensional war.
This series will certainly be different from the other series, or movies in the MCU, as things are already getting weirder and strange. It is pretty clear that things are going to be strange in this series after witnessing the most powerful infinity stones is powerless in TVA. Loki later realizes that everything that the events are happening in the timeline just because Timekeepers are allowing it.
When TVA’s hunters capture him and take him to the TVA, he continuously tries to fight them and escape. His cunning, selfish, and manipulative behavior are depicted in every conversation he has with other characters. This version of Loki is still villainous as he was captured after the events of The Avengers, and he hasn’t had his redemption shown in Thor Ragnarök and Avengers Infinity War.
