The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to get a lot bigger, with multiple MCU spinoff series planned for Disney’s streaming video service, Disney+. Among the shows will be Loki, a series focusing on the titular Asgardian trickster who’s played a prominent role in the evolution of Marvel’s movieverse.

Tom Hiddleston will reprise his MCU role for the series, according to the latest reports on the show. With the series premiering June 9, here’s everything we know about Loki so far.

“I’m gonna burn everything to the ground”

Could the cute mascot of the Time Variance Authority be a little villainous? Miss Minutes released a coded message on Twitter that translates to something along the lines of “once I escape this hell prison they call the TVA I swear I’m gonna burn everything to the ground.”

Multiverse madness

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Feige revealed Loki will meet alternative versions of himself from separate timelines in the upcoming series. “Part of the fun of the multiverse and playing with time is seeing other versions of characters, and other versions of the titular character in particular,” Feige said. “He’s been around for thousands of years. He had all sorts of adventures. Wanting to fill in the blanks and see much more of Loki’s story [was] the initial desire [for the series].”

Marvel continues to work the multiverse in ads, as well, leaning into the many looks of Loki in TikTok ads:

Trailers and teasers

Some of the dots are now connecting thanks to the first series trailer. After stealing the Tesseract and transporting himself away in Avengers: Endgame, Loki has run afoul of the Time Variance Authority, who now impress him into helping reset the proper timeline.

In May, Marvel also released a teaser with the tagline, “Mischief is unpredictable.”

Official posters

Disney has released the first two official posters and already amended the release date for Loki. We knew the series is expected to pick up from where we last saw the titular character in Avengers: Endgame — picking up the Tesseract and transporting himself to parts unknown after the future Avengers’ botched retrieval of the Infinity Stone. The posters certainly tease that time travel or even multiverse hopping may occur in the series, thanks to the clock in the background and the collar around fugitive Loki’s neck. He’s on the run, possibly through time — and possibly through parallel universes.

The second official poster includes Miss Minutes, a mascot for the Time Variance Authority, as well as a new release date! New episodes of Loki will air on Wednesdays starting June 9 on Disney+.

Time to begin the countdown 🕰 @MarvelStudios' #Loki arrives in four weeks with new episodes every Wednesday starting June 9 on #DisneyPlus.

An extra-long trailer

At Disney’s 2020 Investor Day, Marvel Studios released a new, extended trailer for the upcoming series. Check it out.

Already another season

Loki still hasn’t debuted on Disney+ but Production Weekly reports that it has already been renewed for a second season. Production for season 2 should begin sometime in 2022. Season 1 is still expected sometime in 2021.

Landing page official

On July 13, showrunner Michael Waldron revealed that Loki officially had its landing page at Disney+. He also used the moment to call out that Disney had designated the series as science fiction. Doubling down on the designation, Waldron wrote, “You know what they say about ‘sci-fi’: Expect the unexpected when it comes to science fiction.”

Resuming production

We were all excited by recent news Paul Bettany had to cancel a July comiccon due to WandaVision filming. I've just learned that #Loki and #FalconAndtheWinterSoldier are also expected to continue filming in July. This is a new source for me & I must keep it anon but I believe it!

— Lizzie (@MsLizzieHill) June 5, 2020

According to entertainment reporter Liz Hill, Loki has been cleared to resume filming in July. Disney has yet to confirm this report, however. No word yet on how the production delays will affect the 2021 release date.

Lady Loki?

New photos from the set of Loki have surfaced, and certainly, appear to be teasing a popular premise from the comics. Sophia Di Martino is in a costume that is markedly similar to Loki’s Asgardian garb. Maybe she’s a different character entirely, or maybe she’s the trickster himself, transformed into a woman. In the comics and in Nordic mythology, Loki can change his form — as we’ve seen in the MCU when he took on the form of Odin to rule Asgard for a time. However, he can also turn himself into a woman. There is no confirmation, but it sure looks like Di Martino’s character may be Lady Loki. See the photos below.

Super Bowl spot

Disney teased several new series coming to its Disney+ streaming platform, including Loki, WandaVision, and Falcon and Winter Soldier, in a 30-second spot during Super Bowl LIV on February 2. While the Asgardian trickster is only in the spot for a moment, he makes it count with a sinister proclamation: “I’m going to burn this place to the ground.” We also see flashes of a few different logos for the series, an appropriate touch for a character who can multiply himself.

The cast

Tom Hiddleston will return to play the trickster god who has been plaguing the MCU for the past decade or so, but he won’t be going on this journey alone.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw is the most recent addition to the show, after a Variety report confirmed her casting. As usual with Marvel, details about her character are being kept under wraps.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw Joins Loki Cast

Zoolander and Wedding Crashers star Owen Wilson will reportedly play an unidentified role in the series, according to Variety. The nature of Wilson’s role is a secret at this point, but if the report proves true, it will be the actor’s first role in a prominent superhero feature.

Featureflash /

In November 2019, Variety reported that British actress Sophia Di Martino, best known for the TV show Flowers and Danny Boyle’s Beatles-themed comedy Yesterday, was also in talks to join Hiddleston in Loki.

The identity of Di Martino’s character is also unknown, but it’s expected to be a co-starring role alongside Hiddleston.

A Golden Globes interview in October 2020 also confirmed that Sasha Lane, of Amazon’s Utopia, will also star in an undisclosed role.

Premiere date

During Marvel Studios’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2019, the studio revealed its Phase 4 plans for the MCU, which included Loki and other Disney+ projects in addition to its big-screen features.

There’s just one more thing… #SDCC

— Dustin Sandoval (@DustinMSandoval) July 21, 2019

Marvel’s timeline indicates that Loki will debut in spring 2021, at some point between the May 7 theatrical debut of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and the summer premiere of Marvel’s What If? anthology series.

Marvel also revealed the official logo for the Loki series during the studio’s Comic-Con panel.

Just announced in Hall H at #SDCC, Marvel Studios’ LOKI, an original series with Tom Hiddleston. Streaming exclusively on Disney+, Spring 2021.

— Marvel Studios (@MarvelStudios) July 21, 2019

The logo elicited a polarizing public response, with some praising its asymmetrical design as a reference to the character’s chaotic, mischief-making ways, while others criticized it as one of the few Marvel graphics to miss the mark.

Where (and when) it fits

Loki evolved as a character quite a bit throughout the MCU’s timeline, beginning as the wonderfully entertaining, charismatic villain introduced in 2011’s Thor, only to realize his heroic potential in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War. However, Marvel turned back the clock on the trickster in Avengers: Endgame, which had Loki acquire an Infinity Stone just after the events of 2012’s The Avengers and teleport himself to parts unknown.

The Loki series picks up after that point in the MCU timeline, with the title character hopping from one place to another with the powerful artifact — the Infinity Stone known as The Tesseract — and engaging in what’s likely to be all manner of schemes.


“You guys saw Avengers, right? He’s still that guy,” Hiddleston explained to the audience at Marvel’s Comic-Con panel. “And just about the last thing that happened to him was that he got Hulk-smashed, so there’s a lot of psychological evolution that hasn’t happened yet, but [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige] has generously showed me what his plans are — I can’t tell you any of them — but it is one of the most exciting creative opportunities I think I’ve ever come across.”

Speaking as a guest on the Forever Dogs Podcast in March 2020, showrunner Michael Waldron revealed that the show would hinge on Loki’s “struggle with identity.”

“I think it’s the struggle with identity, who you are, who you want to be,” he said. “I’m really drawn to characters who are fighting for control. Certainly, you see that with Loki over the first 10 years of movies — he’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life, he was adopted and everything, and that manifests itself through anger and spite toward his family.”

A question of time

The first image and an early logo for the Loki series were revealed during Walt Disney Company Investors’ Day in June 2019, and they subsequently ended up online (as all things do). Although the updates were intriguing, the most interesting element might be in the background of the photo.

(via @Disney |

— Fandom (@getFANDOM) June 9, 2019

The image features Loki star Tom Hiddleston walking down the street during what appears to be 1975 — the year Steven Spielberg’s Jaws hit theaters. This suggests that the rumors of a time-travel element in the series could indeed be true (unless it’s actually a flashback, of course).

This tracks well with an early synopsis for the series that indicated Loki would follow the title character as he “pops up throughout human history as [an] unlikely influencer on historical events.”

How he ends up with the ability to travel through time in addition to teleporting through space remains a mystery.

Behind the camera

Michael Waldron, a writer and producer on the upcoming season of Cartoon Network’s irreverent sci-fi comedy Rick & Morty, will oversee the Loki series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Waldron will write the series pilot, act as showrunner, and serve as executive producer.

Waldron previously developed a pilot for Showtime, and is currently working on a series called Florida Man with director Steven Soderbergh.

The newest Nest Thermostat rarely goes on sale, but it’s $99.98 for Prime Day



If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on
our website, we may receive an affiliate commission.

The first-generation Nest Learning Thermostat crammed a wide range of brilliant convenience and energy-saving features into a design that was sleek and stylish. Needless to say, it was a total game-changer when it was first released. One simple device could not only save you a bunch of money and make controlling your HVAC system more convenient, but it also looked so cool and futuristic compared to all the regular thermostats out there. After all, they were just a bunch of ugly white boxes. Long story short, the Nest Learning Thermostat had it all.

So many people out there think that Nest’s flagship thermostat is still the best smart thermostat on the planet, and you won’t hear any arguments from us. In fact, we use the latest model in our own home and we love it. The problem is that the Nest Learning Thermostat is quite expensive compared to some of the newer options out there. Even while it’s on sale with a deep discount on Amazon, it’s still nearly $200. The good news is that you can get all the smart features that make Nest’s Learning Thermostat so great in the newer, less expensive model called simply the Nest Thermostat. It retails for $130 and that’s already a bargain, but pop over to Amazon right now and you’ll see that the Nest Thermostat is on sale with a rare discount for Prime Day that drops it to the lowest price ever!

The newest Nest Thermostat doesn’t have the same sleek stainless steel design as the flagship model. But if you ask us, it features a different design that’s just as stylish. The face of the new Nest has a unique mirror finish with a digital display underneath it, and it comes in four different colors to match any home decor. Most importantly, of course, the Nest Thermostat includes all of the important smart features from the flagship model. You’ll be able to control your thermostat from anywhere using the Nest app or your voice thanks to Google Assistant and Alexa support, and you’ll save plenty of money on your energy bill thanks to Nest’s intelligent features that tune your settings constantly and learn from your behavior.

With a list price of just $130, Google’s newest Nest Thermostat is a terrific value. All things considered, it may very well be the best value out there and it’s going to pay for itself in savings on your energy bills. But if you head over to Amazon right now and pick one up, you’ll pay just $99.98!

The only bad news is that we’ve seen this discount disappear already on a few different color options, so you probably don’t have much time left if you want to get in on the action. If you do miss out on this deal, the good news is that you can still snag the flagship Nest Learning Thermostat for just $199.
