In a newly revealed Loki scene, the MCU’s God of Mischief stands trial before the Time Variance Authority for his Avengers: Endgame escape.
A new Loki video shows the MCU’s God of Mischief being put on trial by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) for the effect his Avengers: Endgame escape had on the timeline. Due to the events of Endgame, Loki managed to escape from his imprisonment at the end of the first Avengers, throwing off the natural order in the process. The Disney+ series will star Tom Hiddleston in the eponymous leading role, along with Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Wunmi Mosaku.
The MCU began to explore the possibilities and ramifications of time travel in Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Endgame, but Loki will expand on the concept even further. The show will focus on Loki’s interactions with the TVA, whose job is to preserve the “Sacred Timeline” from temporal events that seek to damage or alter it. From what’s been revealed so far, it looks like the God of Mischief will be hopping all over the Marvel multiverse over the course of the series, possibly even coming face-to-face with other variants of himself.
A new video released via IGN has revealed one of Loki’s earliest interactions with the TVA – his trial for crimes against the Sacred Timeline. In the scene, Loki is brought before a TVA judge in chains and asked how he pleads. Having reverted back to his villainous and conniving Phase 1 self, Loki treats the entire affair with an expected level of contempt, declaring that he is indeed guilty – of being the God of Mischief, that is. Check out the full Loki clip below.
In the video, Loki carries himself with all the self-important, high-and-mighty attitude that fans have come to expect from the character. That makes a lot of sense, given that this version of Loki never experienced the events of MCU Phase 2 or Phase 3 – events during which he became gradually less villainous and at times even a bit heroic. One of the big questions surrounding the new show is how the new-old variant of Loki will fit with past iterations of the character. If the above clip is any indication, he at least still has his pride.
The video also gives a new look at the mysterious TVA. The group appears to be an interesting blend of bureaucracy and mysticism, paperwork and ritual. It’s funny to see the judge be so clearly unfazed by Loki’s attempts at posturing, and the whole idea of a time-travel-centered organization that seems somewhat bored with its own activities (as the judge does) is a goldmine of absurdist comedic potential. It should be exciting to see more of the TVA when Loki premieres on Disney+ on June 9.
