Earlier this week, Disney + Swashbuckling has released a new trailer for the upcoming Marvel series Loki. Like most of these trailers, it calms down – Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief is called to a meeting with Time Variety Authority agent Van Wilson’s Mobius M. Mobius, and then it jumps out loud and loud. There are jokes about action and knife throwing, and Loki’s ability to tell the truth (he can’t). It’s fun and a little off-kilter a and a good reminder that Marvel should be in its weirdest lane as much as possible.
Technically, that lane is just outside the original Marvel Cinematic Universe Highway. As you can imagine Loki is dead Avengers: Eternal War But when the Avengers removed their “time history” Endgame And went back to the original events Avengers In the movie, Loki catches the experiments and escapes, revealing all sorts of alternative realities. (I can explain this further, but instead I would suggest some advice from my colleague Adam Rogers: Don’t sweat. This is not very important)) The purpose of, then, Loki Both the show and the piece in the Marvel puzzle is that TVA has given him the responsibility to clean up his own mess. He is still technically gone but here he can resort to his old tactics.
This is probably the gift Disney + Marvel TV universe gave us. Tell me where Netflix Marvel shows, Jessica Jones And Luke Cage MCU has used anything from streaming to give MCU a darker edge, with more family-friendly Disney + shows totally bizarre. (Although the doctor is not strange. Still.) The first was, of course Wandavision, Which made Scarlett an unusual crank with a bunch of TV troupes gifted to the witch to turn with her will. It may end up with a big superhero fight like all the other Marvel features, but in its (even better) quiet moments, acknowledging this fact, it performed a miracle, hey, Perhaps they are very strange when the Avengers are kicking around the house. It took a superhero sitcom view like DC Extended Universe Supergirl And The Flash, And it has meta more. A bright turn.
My hope is, if I am allowed to keep it here Loki It still takes the farthest. There is a kind of it; It is woven into the character. He’s the ultimate trickster and his bizarreness – like when he imitates his father, changes form at the hat boil the whole thing is one of a kind. (He also starred in Hiddleston, who channeled his Shakespeare thesis power so well into the character, he was both a villain and a tragic hero at the same time.) Stranger, able Quantum Leap It’s just as devastating to wander around in his own sandbox and as long as it’s fixed.
In an ideal world, lots of upcoming Disney + shows will do it. MCU is Jagarnot great, but his best moments happen when our tireless heroes don’t save the universe. Captain Marvel while verbally spreading with the Rocket Raccoon; When Lebowski is playing Thor video games; When Ant-Man does ant things. Theoretically, the universe would move in such its coming Dr. Strange and Madden’s Multiverse rs Stage, it will get more bats (hence that title) but movies will still be movies and that’s all it needs Whisper-bang Kapo! Fits neat two hour run time. With the help of TV an entire episode can only be a full side quest with gags, offbeat characters and other ephemeras that it can never place on the big screen. Falcon and Winter Soldier Okay, but the biggest hangup is that it seems like a long time Captain America Film. Not a bad thing, but not a surreal joke with the gang that wanted a Disney + show.
Based on the latest trailer, Loki Both can be the best in the world – its action Falcon With offbeat-ness Wandavision. A show about outfaxing foxes with something Eve murder Energy. (One can only hope …) “You raised the test, broke the reality,” Mobius M. Mobius told Loki midway, “I want you to help us fix it.” Here he does not expect.
