Loki

STREAMING REVIEW:

Disney+;
Sci-Fi;
Not rated.
Stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Richard E. Grant, Jack Veal, Tara Strong.

A happenstance of the time travel plot of Avengers: Endgame becomes the key to redefining the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As fans will recall, the Avengers’ attempt to pluck an infinity stone from the events of the 2012 Avengers movie go awry when the imprisoned Loki is able to grab one and transport away.

“Loki” the series picks up immediately after that, as the newly loose god of mischief is quickly arrested by the Time Variance Authority, an organization that exists outside linear time tasked with maintaining a single cohesive timeline. Loki, being a variant from how events should have occurred (aka the MCU after 2012), is then recruited by TVA agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) to help fight a bigger threat to the timeline — a woman named Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) who wants to bring down the power behind the organization, the mysterious Timekeepers.

The six-episode arc provides quite a showcase for HIddleston, whose wry performance reminds us why we love his character so much despite his misdeeds.

With its time travel premise and British actors at its core, “Loki” at times gives off strong “Doctor Who” vibes, particularly a third episode that lays a lot of groundwork for the character dynamics between Loki and Sylvie. The interplay between Hiddleston and Wilson also is particularly strong.

The way the storyline plays out, Loki’s adventures through time will have huge ramifications for several upcoming MCU movies, particularly Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Loki’s own attempts to deal with the aftermath of his actions will be dealt with in season two.
