If you’re one of the many, many fans around the globe who waved their angry fists in the air when Loki died in Endgame, there’s hope yet—you no longer have to mourn the God of Mischief, thanks to his new TV series that follows his travels through time. While this isn’t going to be the same Loki who already went through his character redemption arc in the Avengers movies, it’s still Loki—albeit a younger, more mischievous one.
With Kevin Feige’s presentation at the Disney Investor Day, we got an in-depth look into Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, and here are the biggest Easter eggs you might have missed.
- Our favorite anti-hero is a prisoner of the TVA
Owen Wilson plays a character named Mobius M. Mobius, and he’s bringing a shackled Loki down an elevator in a Time Variance Authority prison jumpsuit. Since Loki messed around with the Tesseract, he officially broke a whole bunch of time laws, which brought his presence to the TVA’s attention.
There’s also some sort of cybernetic police force from the TVA known as the Minutemen, who seem to be hunting a mysterious cloaked figure wielding a lantern. It may or may not be Kang the Conqueror, which brings us to the next point…
2. Those three gigantic faces
In the trailer, we see three figures standing prominently at the TVA headquarters, which may point to the Time-Keepers. These time travelers have had not-so-pleasant run-ins with Kang the Conqueror before, which further cements the theory that the hooded figure is indeed him.
3. The future isn’t set
Since Loki will be pretty much meddling with time in the show, it’s not just the past he can tamper with, but also the future. In fact, we even see a shot of the Avengers tower in ruins in the background in one scene, which may point to a possible dystopian future where the Avengers are no more. It might also mean a world where Ultron was successful—it’s highly plausible.
4. The past isn’t set, either
As for what already happened, there’s no stopping the God of Mischief from meddling with that too, is there? In a shot of him sporting a clean and pristine look while boarding an airplane in a suit, fans have pointed out that he actually just might be D.B. Cooper, a mysterious man from actual history who held a plane hostage, took everyone’s money, jumped out, and just disappeared. If Heimdall summoned the Bifrost to teleport Loki away, it would really explain a lot, wouldn’t it?
5. Loki in the oval office?
Finally, we also get a shot of Loki with a ‘LOKI FOR PRESIDENT’ pin—might it mean that he’s actually running for president, or is it just another fun thing he’s wearing for no particular reason? He’s certainly not opposed to hijinks like this—then again, that pin could easily have been Photoshopped just to throw us off. We’ll just have to wait and see!
