Not much is known about the upcoming series, but we do know that it will follow the Loki who managed to get away in ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ which means that this is the Trickster God who has not yet redeemed himself. We’re not getting the noble Loki Odinson who sacrificed himself at the outset of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ but instead we’ll see the one who took over Asgard in ‘Thor: The Dark World.’
While Hiddleston was out promoting his upcoming Broadway debut in ‘Betrayal,’ he was asked about the new series:
“It’s very, very exciting because in many ways it’s the character you know, but in a context, you’ve never seen him in before. And if I say any more, I’m gonna say too much. So that’s what’s so thrilling — there’s so much to explore that I haven’t yet explored. That’s very exciting.”
As Hiddleston revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, “Just about the last thing that happened to him was he got Hulk-smashed. So there’s a lot of psychological evolution that is still yet to happen,” and he hasn’t made up with his brother as was seen in ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’
Hopefully, this means that we might still be seeing Loki find a way to return to the MCU films even if it isn’t the version that Thor might be thrilled to see.
