Details on Disney+'s upcoming live-action Loki series had been scant prior to Avengers: Endgame, but now that the movie's box office run is finally coming to a close, Disney is loosening some lips and allowing others to speak on the upcoming adventure. This was the case at the Disney Investors Day meeting, in which Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige was on hand to discuss the show, show off its logo, and give attendees their first look at the series.
While Kevin Feige spoke, concept art from the series and the show's logo appeared on a screen right behind him. The photo appears to show Loki walking through a city in the 1970s as a big sign advertising Jaws can be seen over his shoulder and cars and fashion of the era are all on display. Take a look:
It isn't a ton, but it is enough to dispel some of the rumors that have circulated about the Loki series. To start, that looks to be an adult Loki in the concept art, and while it might be another actor playing him, it seems safe to speculate this is going to follow Tom Hiddleston's Loki at least through part of the show.
Another bit worth mentioning is where Loki is, as it appears this is the same version of Loki that escaped via the Tesseract when the Avengers went back in time during Avengers: Endgame. While it appears the official MCU continuity Loki is still dead, this alternate timeline hopping Loki is in the '70s and might be headed to some other locations, per that plot synopsis from a while back.
The official logo for Loki is another interesting point of discussion, as some have thought the font of the logo is a take on the typeface seen in Marvel's Journey Into Mystery. If that's the case, then this series just got a lot more interesting, as that run featured the character Kid Loki as a protagonist. Kid Loki was also at one point rumored to appear in the series, although no rumors have revealed who will play him.
With all this new information coming out, it's worth noting the Russos confirmed Loki created a new timeline when he teleported away with the Space Stone. If this is the same Loki from Avengers: Endgame, then this Loki could affect this new timeline in various ways that won't necessarily affect the Avengers who survived in Avengers: Endgame. There's also a chance this Loki will run into a past version of himself, especially if he's jumping through time like this.
With no official word on when Loki will arrive on Disney+, Marvel fans should just stick with CinemaBlend for more details on that and other upcoming movie and television news.
