Loki disney plus show- got released and it set the bar for the series on a very high note compared to previous two series of MCU- WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. After watching the first episode of the Disney Loki series, I’ve two words-Weird and Wonderful! Exactly what was expected from this show, everything about it is intriguing and we immediately need to know more about Loki. Tom Hiddleston is as charismatic as ever and newcomer Owen Wilson, is a very welcome addition to the MCU and the chemistry between just works great as another duos. We must appreciate that Loki’s opening surpasses the other two Disney Plus shows and now the wait is on for next week.
Mobius- Loki’s partner??
Enter Mobius (Owen Wilson), a TVA analyst and detective-of-sorts whose job is to hunt down time variants like Loki, who have veered off their destinies and represent a risk to the sacred timeline.
The Disney plus Loki series- Mobius believes Loki can help him catch a “particularly dangerous variant” he is after, and that’s why the TVA detective saves the God of Mischief from imminent death. Mobius is also a self-proclaimed Loki expert, and for the first time, he now has direct access to the source.
But while Mobius knows everything about Loki’s life, this Loki from circa 2012 — via The Avengers— is missing his character growth from Thor: The Dark World and Thor Ragnarok .
He learns about his lived life through the TVA, and it’s a series of shocks for him, especially when his life has been nothing like what he imagined of it.
In an earlier interview with TV Insider, Tom said, “I think what’s really interesting is that the audience broadly has a better perspective on Loki than Loki does. Because the audience has seen the events of The Dark World, and Ragnarok, and Infinity War, and Endgame, and this is a Loki that doesn’t have any of that self-awareness.
He’s out of his comfort zone, a fish out of water, and not happy about it.”
Loki disney plus show- This is the starting point of the show. Loki takes an action that he was not supposed toand hence is arrested by the Time Variance Authority. The TVA is an agency which protects the ‘sacred timeline,’ which saves the universe from descending into chaos. Loki becomes a variant for this move, and he has to be punished. However, a TVA agent Mobius M Mobius, has some other plans for the God of Mischief.
There is no Asgard and there is no Thor for him to back-stab.
Loki disney plus show- Inside the TVA, Loki cannot use his magic. The only thing that stays in the show is his mind, and a razor-sharp wit. Loki has all the elements of an out-and-out crime thriller, which sets it apart from most Marvel ventures.
Director on Loki series
Disney plus Loki- When Loki director Kate Herron was asked about this, she answered, “It’s honestly just a super weird coincidence. Like, it’s genuinely a reference to Loki —
the horns, he was cast out of heaven, that’s what it’s a reference to,” Herron said.
I did see all the stuff about that online and I was like, ‘Oh, this is going to be interesting.’ [Laughs] But no, it’s more relevant to the themes of our show and it’s not a nod to that character.”
