Following the success of WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, the Loki TV series will be the next Marvel release to launch on Disney Plus.
The MCU show will see Tom Hiddleston reprise his role as the God of Mischief, as he finds himself caught up in the web of the TVA (Time Variance Authority), an organisation that keeps a close eye on the flow of time with the help of their Time-Keepers.
Knowing Loki as we do, we have a feeling he’ll cause quite a bit of havoc when he enters different parts of the timeline as the TVA strive to correct discrepancies that have occurred.
So when is the Loki release date, is there a trailer and who is in the cast?
When is Loki being released?

It’s expected that the show will be released on a weekly basis.
Is there a trailer for the Marvel series?
Following sneak peeks and teasers, the official trailer for Loki was released on April 5.
The trailer opens with Loki being apprehended by the TVA, an organisation that ‘protects the proper flow of time’.
Donning a prison-like jumpsuit and a neck collar, Loki is informed that he has caused a disruption to the timeline, having obtained the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame when the Avengers time-travelled back to 2012.
The TVA brings Loki on board to help correct the deviations in time, with the adoptive brother of Thor being dubbed a ‘variant’.
Snippets from the trailer show Loki standing in an alternate version of New York that’s been obliterated, showing off his skills in close combat and sitting with a mysterious female character, who many fans believe will turn out to be Lady Loki.
While Loki claims to be ‘10 steps ahead’ of the TVA, something tells us he’s going to meet his match when he tries to get the better of the powerful organisation.

Who is in the cast?
In addition to Tom, who first played Loki in the 2011 film Thor, the Marvel series also stars an unrecognisable Owen Wilson as Mobius M Mobius, a member of the TVA.
Belle actor Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays fellow TVA member Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, who is also a judge for the organisation.
Another member of the TVA, Hunter B-15, is portrayed by Wunmi Mosaku, while Sophia Di Martino, Richard E Grant, Sasha Lane and Erika Coleman have also been cast in Loki in roles that are yet to be revealed.
Loki is due to premiere on June 11 on Disney Plus.
