“Watch Loki – the imperious God of Mischief – who, after absconding with the Tesseract, is a fish-out-of-water when he lands in a world of trouble with the bureaucratic TVA (Time Variance Authority),” Marvel said of Loki in a synopsis posted online.
Tom Hiddleston returns as the titular character and is joined by Owen Wilson, Richard E. Grant, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino and Wunmi Mosaku in the six-episode series.
Little is known about the plot besides time travel being a major factor.
Visual effects supervisor Brad Parker implied in a recent interview that fans should expect the unexpected. “Well, that’s pretty much all I can say, that it is a crazy journey! That’s another project that will defy expectations in a lot of ways. It’s been so much fun,” Parker told Comic Book Movie last month.
“It’s been on my hit list to work on a Marvel project, and Loki is just such a great one. It’s so cool, and there are so many amazing things that are going to happen in every episode. I can’t wait for people to see it. It’s a lot of hard work. We’re working furiously to make this thing as great as possible, and I think people are going to be thrilled when they see it.”
