And now, speaking about events after Endgame, another TV show takes the stage as the God of Mischief returns to add a little more spice to our lives. That is right, Loki of Asgard. is now back after mysteriously disappearing in a place unknown while he owns the Tessaract. Now, let’s catch up with Loki and where he is right now. Major spoilers ahead! Read at your own risk, everyone.
Loki: An Anti-Hero
Loki has been one of the most lovable characters of all time, ever since his evolution in Thor. As Thor’s brother, he always lived in the shadow of the demigod, but after The Avengers and the attack on New York, that is when he started gaining the name and fame, for no right reasons of course. Although he has been responsible for a lot of destruction, he has tried to ally himself in the fight against Thanos, and since that time, he has been looking for a way to correct himself, or has he?
Loki now appears in a location somewhere in the desert where he is found by a few officers of a particular organization called the Time-Variant Authority. This authority is now responsible for capturing Loki since he has been the one messing with the Scared Timeline. His actions have caused the organization trouble and now he is being condemned for his actions. But now, the TVA has brought up an interesting scenario, where a certain Variant has been going around different locations in the universe and at different points of time and has been killing officers of the TVA, known as Minutemen.
Now, the agent who has taken the responsibility for taking care of Loki is an agent named Mobius. Mobius walks Loki through some dire memories of the kind of disaster that he has caused in the past. His actions are then turned against him and for that, he has to serve punishment.
Now, Mobius gives Loki another chance of proving himself as he pairs up with the TVA to stop the Variant who has been killing the Minutemen. The Variant was first identified as Loki himself. And now, the plot intensifies.
Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, and Sophia Di Martino
Now, another reason for all the excitement is the star-filled cast that is present to entertain the audience. As obvious it is, Tom Hiddleston was already a confirmed individual which had no surprise there. Everyone was just excited to see him wear the shoes of Loki once more and cause some chaos. But now, some new additions have been made to the cast.
As a surprise, Owen Wilson is now a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe! He is Agent Mobius in the series. Wilson now partners up with Hiddleston and together, they have now created a duo that has been loved by every Marvel fanatic. The pair are genuinely hilarious, work as a team to stop the Variant, and try to refrain Loki from stepping into any evil shadows again. Now, a third cast member, and this is a surprise. It is Sophia Di Martino as the Variant. Let us get to know more about this particular subject!
Sophia Di Martino as The Variant/Sylvie
Sophia Di Martino is now also a part of the cast as she has been cast as the choice for the Variant. Her other name in the series is also referred to as Sylvie. For those who may not know, Sophia has been a part of other prominent projects as well. One of them is the motion picture, ‘Yesterday’. This movie was based on arguably the best rock band of all time, The Beatles, and was directed by none other than the talented Danny Boyle.
Now, in the series, only 3 episodes have aired as of now in which in the latest episode, her identity has been revealed to the audience. She comes across as killing Minutemen. Although people yet are not aware of her exact motive, she has now partnered up with Loki.
In the finale of the second episode, Sylvie uses her enchanting powers in manipulating Loki and he eventually ends up following her in another dimension on another planet. As of now, the two are fighting together. Although Loki had the TemPad and that is what Sylvie was after, now it has been broken due to a rather small incident that took place on the planet, Laminitis-1 in the year, 2077.
