After the heartbreaking "Avengers: Endgame," Marvel officially announced that they are about to make fans remember about the death of a character and hurt their hearts all over again.
In July 2019, Marvel revealed the newest films and television shows line-up for the upcoming Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ten of these movies and series have already been set for release this 2020, while the remaining launches will complete the phase until 2021.
Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige said in a recent interview that the upcoming movies will require all the viewers to get a Disney Plus subscription.
Feige gave two sole reasons why fans should also watch the series before seeing the movies. One, because the series is correlated with the whole phase. Two, because they will be reviving one of the most popular characters in the MCU.
Loki, the anti-hero who first appeared in the 2011 movie "Thor," already died during "Avengers: Infinity War." Speculations about Loki still alive were debunked by the directors of "Avengers: Endgame," as they confirmed that Loki is truly dead even though he managed to escape in one alternate universe in the last film.
Marvel left a blurry plot with their announcement of Loki being included in the Disney+ series. According to IMDB, The God of Mischief will have six episodes to start the first season and it will center around Loki.
If the series will focus on his past or future? No one knows.
Fans still have no idea whether the series will serve as a prequel only to give complete closure, or Marvel lied to them and Loki made it alive in all MCU movies where he was considered dead.
Nonetheless, there is one thing Feige confirmed so far: the Loki series will be tied with the 2021 film, "Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness." Moreover, Tom Hiddleston is expected to reprise the role.
"I'm not sure we've actually acknowledged that before. But it does," Feige confirmed.
Hiddleston is expected to be seen not only in the series and in the upcoming Doctor Strange movie but also in the Disney + show "What If...?" It is an MCU animated series included in phase 4 and will present the alternate scenes like what could have happened if Loki found Thor's hammer.
More MCU actors are expected to appear on the series to provide different outcomes.
