A mysterious and dangerous character, played by none other than Tom Hiddlestone himself, is the God of mischief, and it’s this exact mischievousness that has caused fans all over the world to make Loki one of the most critically acclaimed tv shows since it came out.
You can watch the show on Disney+ if you haven’t, but if you have then you can still rewatch it because to be honest, who can ever get tired of watching a character like Loki.
Does Loki Really Have His Own Tv Series?
This was the exact question millions across the globe had in mind when the first trailer of Marvel’s Phase Four tv series on Loki came out. Many thought it was fan-made, but it turned out to be true when the producers over at Disney and Marvel confirmed that Loki was in fact, having a whole show built around him.
Another question that the fans of the Avengers had was where exactly did Loki disappear off to when he stole the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame? The answer was provided in the standalone series Loki, where it’s shown that Loki travels to an alternative timeline and in doing so, creates an alternate version of Loki.
Throughout the show, the audience is taken on an adventure through various worlds where Loki escapes off after being arrested by the Time Variance Authority, your local sheriff station that literally controls the time-space continuum.
A Constantly Expanding Universe:
Much like the Milky Way, the Marvel universe is a fictional universe created with the brilliance of Stan Lee and other writers through their comic books, which exist in more than 32,000 different labels as of 2009. After being inspired by the comics written on superhero fiction, many tv studios started creating movies associated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has over 7,000 characters and 30 main superheroes, who are recurring characters in the Avengers franchise as well.
One of the most popular main characters and antagonists of the universe, Loki Laufeyson, portrayed by the extremely talented and charming actor, Tom Hiddlestone, made a name for himself when he was first introduced as the mysterious brother of Thor, God Of Thunder in the standalone movie Thor. Wanting to be king of Asgard, one of the Nine Realms and the former home of the Asgardians, Loki is seen confirming his God Of Mischief title as he plots to take over Asgard after Thor is banished to Earth by their father, the King Of Gods, Odin.
Carrying out his mischievousness in every movie he appears in, Loki is finally seen as one of the biggest characters of the Marvel universe when he wages war against the protectors of the Earth in one of the most popular movies of the Marvel franchise, The Avengers (2012). Loki gives his fans a treat every time he appears on the big screen. Being a relatable and exciting character to watch, there have been several instances where the fans have petitioned to Marvel and Disney to put out a standalone Loki film, which has now become a reality with the release of Loki (2021).
A Mysterious Narrative
Traveling through time and space, Loki reappears in a desert as a result of him using the Tesseract as seen in the Avengers: Endgame (2019) movie. Revolving around a few main characters who are either a part of the Time Variance Authority or are plotting a war against it. The narrative starts as Loki is captured from the desert by the TVA who oversees all the alternate realities in the world, making sure that none of them meddle with the time-space continuum.
The TVA, being a ministerial organization created by one of the most significant characters in the fictitious universe, He Who Remains, takes Loki to a place that doesn’t exist inside of space and time and is found outside it, with the sole task of keeping the “Sacred Timeline” safe by putting an end to anything that causes a divide in the one true timeline. Although Loki first believes that everything he’s going through is fake and set up, the show explains how the TVA is in fact the true heir of time as we know it.
After being captured and taken to the TVA headquarters, Loki is sentenced to be pruned. A procedure where with the help of a glowing stick, one can entirely erase someone from existence. As in some scenes, we actually do get to see some pruning, the show revolves around Loki’s chance to make up for the damages he’s caused by helping a TVA agent, Mobius, capture a troublemaking variant of Loki, played by the brilliant Sophia Di Martino, ‘Sylvie’.
A couple of episodes in, Loki, wearing his suave Loki Leather Jacket, and the TVA do find where Sylvie is hiding as they skip through different apocalypses happening in different worlds, resulting in their complete destruction. Upon knowing where Sylvie is, Loki decides to take a chance on her and forms an alliance with his own variant to take down the people that captured Loki. Loki and Sylvie, an on-screen duo with insane chemistry made fans all over the world freak out and start shipping the two, a dream that was even further developed when the variants embarked on an incredible journey together and clearly hinted at liking each other.
The dynamic duo of Sylvie and Loki after being pruned, are seen teleporting into a place where time loops itself. A place with no escape, or as the people pruned are made to believe, Loki and Sylvie fight the monster who keeps the people pruned captured, and with the help of other Loki variants, find themselves at a Citadel built at the end of time itself. After finding He Who Remains there, the duo wearing their signature Loki Coat brings the show to an end with more plot holes left to be filled for the next season so people can stay excited for Loki.
How Did This Masterpiece Of A Character Come Into Existence?
Loki, the lord of mischief, is known as a shrewdness adversary whose knowledge is in excess of a counterpart for Thor’s sheer strength – yet in his first comic appearance, Loki is a moron who keeps failing to remember essential realities, even ones so exceptionally basic as how Thor’s forces work. Appearing in Journey Into Mystery in 1952, Loki immediately became well known as one of Thor’s most detestable scalawags, however, that standing unmistakably didn’t lay down a good foundation for itself until after this issue.
Stan Lee would place impressive work into Loki before he turned into the scheming fake fans know and love today. In the character’s presentation, notwithstanding, he was less the God of Mischief and more likened to a God of unremarkableness and furthermore had one of the most exceedingly terrible shortcomings in Marvel comics history. It wasn’t until later that the writer of Marvel comics decided to make Loki one of the most loved antagonists of the Marvel universe.
Loki’s personality has acquired various qualities and storylines from across the historical backdrop of the character in Marvel Comics. As in the comics, Loki has commonly been a miscreant in the MCU, differently endeavoring to overcome Asgard or Earth, and has aligned himself with all the more remarkable scoundrels to accomplish his points. He has specific hostility for his supportive sibling Thor, and is known to differently align with and afterward deceive Thor and others, and to consistently get back from evident demise. In his improvement through the movies and TV series, he turns out to be to a lesser extent a supervillain and a greater amount of a screw-up.
A Brief History Of Loki’s Life
Loki Laufeyson was the natural child of Laufey, the leader of the Frost Giants in Jotunheim, who was deserted and passed on soon after his introduction to the world. Found by Odin, Loki was taken to Asgard and raised by him and Frigga as an Asgardian ruler, alongside Thor. At the point when Thor was to be delegated King, Loki had undermined the crowning ceremony by letting the Frost Giants assault Asgard, in this manner driving Thor to look for retaliation on Jotunheim, which brought about Thor’s expulsion to Earth and Loki discovering reality with regards to his legacy.
During his last minutes on Asgard, Loki took the Tesseract from Odin’s Vault and in the wake of the Destruction of Asgard, decided to remain by his sibling’s side and backed his climb onto the lofty position. Results of his arrangement with Thanos would before long cause issues down the road for Loki, notwithstanding, as the Mad Titan and his Black Order captured the Asgardians as they were advancing towards Earth.
The Striking Cast Of Loki:
The cast of Loki, alongside the show itself, was mysterious in the sense that it was revealed just before the movie came out, as to not give out any unintended spoilers. The versatility and the experience the cast brought to the table were praised by critics all around the time and are still one of the highest-ranking casts to date in a standalone tv series.
Consisting of fantastic male and females leads Tom Hiddlestone as Loki, Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie aka Lady Loki, Owen Wilson as Mobius, a rising star and familiar face Jonathan Majors as He Who Remains (later to be revealed as Kang The Conqueror), and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, a BAFTA Rising Star Award winner as Ravonna, the show is a fantastic mixture of science and superhero fiction
Now how did these actors play out their roles in the series, let’s find out:
- Introduced as the main character of the show, Loki’s character is played by Tom Hiddlestone. He is the only actor to play Loki in every Marvel film he’s appeared in, since 2011, and was the obvious cast for his standalone tv series. Appearing in every episode wearing the Tom Hiddleston Loki Variant Jacket since he was captured by the TVA at the very start of the show.
- Another shocking cast of Owen Wilson as TVA Agent Mobius was one that made the headlines since he hadn’t been a part of the Marvel franchise before. Although appearing in 5 episodes out of the 6 in the first season, Mobius was a character loved by many when instead of killing Loki, gave him a chance and built a foundation with him. This couldn’t have been possible without the amazing cast of Owen Wilson.
- Sylvie aka Lady Loki, played by the amazing Sophia Di Martino was pretty much the focus of the show. Being the original antagonist to the very lovable protagonist of the tv show, she shined through every scene of the film wearing her Sylvie Black Hooded Loki Coat. Despite being a Marvel movie debutant, she built amazing chemistry with Tom Hiddlestone which was then carried out in the show as fans loved the idea of Sylvie and Loki developing a romantic relationship.
- He Who Remains/Kang The Conqueror, a character that surprised every single fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe when he turned out to be a rather comedic and non-threatening presence, was played by Jonathan Majors. It was because of his acting skills that the audience felt completely trapped into the show near its end, because of the sudden plot twist that He Who Remains is just a “human being with fancy machinery”.
- The last but not least main character of the show, Ravonna, played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, was one of the fiercest characters of Loki. Showing no mercy to any variant she came across, she kept secrets that even her partners didn’t know about. Ultimately resulting in one of the most liked characters of the show, being the only character to show up in all the episodes alongside Loki himself.
