I have some weird feelings flowing around in me as I think of this series. It’s almost like an unhealthy type of hype or excitement that comes when speculating on what Hasbro will make based on silly clues.

I adore Hiddleston as Loki. It’s as perfect a casting as Reynolds as Deadpool, Jackman as Wolverine, and Stewart as Xavier...okay non X-Men castings...JK Simmons as Jameson, evans as Cap, Levi as Shazam, Gadot as Wonder Woman...anyway. I’d watch Hiddleston as Loki reading the dictionary. It would be amazingly compelling.

I haven’t anticipated any Marvel story outside of Guardians quite like this. It can be anything. It can go anywhere. I’m okay with alternate Loki characters like the kid and lady (wonder who it would be playing the lady) just as long as Hiddleston gets a fair share of the screen time.

This is going to be great!

Thwipp!

Loki trailer is cool, but wow I don’t know what’s going on. Usually I have a sense for the plot based on comic experience. Is this show inspired by any comic storyline?

The Time Variance Authority shows up quite a bit (but does not originate) in Dan Slott’s She-Hulk solo. Lots of fun wacky continuity shifting stories to be told with the keepers of the time stream.

This definitely has gotg type fun factor potential.

It also looks like this is going to tie into a lot of things.

I don't keep up on the news about the upcoming stuff so if I'm wrong that's why. but is this supposed to tie into she hulk and Dr. Strange, maybe more?

If they drop it at 3-ass-o'clock in the morning we'll still have to deal with spoilers all day long.

The interesting question to me is how does Loki getting ahold of the Mind Stone bring about the attention of the Time Variance Authority.

He has the Space stone, and he stole it in an alternate reality which displaced the timeline. I imagine that's why the TVA cares.

I'd also be VERY surprised if the MCU doesn't conflate the Time Variance Authority and The Timebroker in case they want to do some Exiles-style fun stuff with this in the future without having to introduce a whole different thing that's so similar to something they already have.

They're already doing that, no? I only know the TimeKEEPERS from Avengers Forever; are they the leaders of the TVA in the 616 as well? I never got that impression from Simonson's FF where that organization was introduced.

As silly as this sounds, my hype for this show is mainly due to them finally explaining the time travel stuff from Endgame, lol.

Variant Loki stealing the Tesseract and creating those branches....we get to finally see why those branch timelines have to be clipped from the TVA's perspective.


There seems to be a growing demand for a "Captain America: The Last Mission" series with Evans travelling across realities and returning the artifacts to close the timeline branches.

Returning some of the Stones had to have presented some issues for him, like getting the Aether back into Jane's ass. I dunno that I need a whole show of it but some post-credit snippets would be very cool and at the least a comic could be interesting.

I'm assuming the stones reverted to the form they were in once returned to their specific times.

they posted a new preview to Twitter today, interesting clip but wonder what the elevator buttons mean. It's almost like they're initials as part of an Easter egg
