It’s less than two months before Loki premieres on Disney+, which means Tom Hiddleston is on the publicity trail!
A new trailer that dropped last week showed Loki interacting with the TVA (Time Variance Authority), specifically Mobius (Owen Wilson). A new poster released last month also highlighted the TVA, which undoubtedly will play a big role in the show considering Loki’s history with time travel and messing up timelines.
But other than a few short videos and the idea of time travel, further plot details have been kept under wraps. Until now, kind of. In a new interview with Empire, Hiddleston divulged some more details about his character and his new standalone show.
One element he touched upon was the Loki logo. Hiddleston remarked:
“I think that shapeshifting logo might give you an idea that Loki, the show, is about identity, and about integrating the disparate fragments of the many selves that he can be, and perhaps the many selves that we are. I thought it was very exciting because I’ve always found Loki a very complex construct.”
Indeed, Loki is one of the more complicated MCU characters we’ve seen on screen. That makes the idea of a streaming series even more exciting, as we’ll get to explore more of his character. Hiddleston continued:
“His mercurial nature is that you don’t know whether, across the MCU, he’s a hero or a villain or an anti-hero. You don’t know whether you can trust him. He literally and physically changes shape into an Asgardian guard, or into Captain America repeatedly.”
And that’s part of the fun! The way Loki’s character has changed throughout the MCU has fans looking forward to what version – or versions! – of the God of Thunder we’ll see on Disney+. We’ll certainly be tuning in on June 11 – will you?
