Loki is in trouble. Again.
The beloved villain/antihero/sidekick from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally getting a starring turn in Disney+’s series, “Loki,” premiering June 11.
For those who can’t wait for more from Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) clever adopted brother, the streaming service released a new trailer for the series Monday that gives a deeper look at what Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has been up to since we last saw him.
Fans of 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame” will recall that when our heroes were traipsing through the past to gather enough infinity stones to undo Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) destruction of half of life in the universe, past Loki managed to abscond with the tesseract.
But it appears Loki’s escape wasn’t a clean getaway. In the trailer for “Loki,” the god of mischief has run afoul of the TVA (Time Variance Authority), a time-travel bureaucracy with Owen Wilson and Gugu Mbatha-Raw among its ranks. Loki has faced frost giants, the Avengers and gods before this, but now he’s saddled with something far scarier: paperwork.

The cast also includes actors Sophia Di Martino (“Yesterday), Wunmi Mosaku (“Lovecraft Country”) and Richard E. Grant.
“Loki” is the third live-action Marvel original on Disney+, following “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” (streaming Fridays). Other expected series featuring Marvel characters include “Secret Invasion”; “Ironheart”; “Ms. Marvel,” starring Iman Vellani as Pakistani-American teen superhero Kamala Khan; “She Hulk,” to star Tatiana Maslany and include Mark Ruffalo; and “What If” (due this summer), featuring the animated backstories of several Marvel Cinematic Universe characters.
Marvel will also produce a “Guardians of the Galaxy” holiday special set for 2022, directed by James Gunn and featuring the film’s famous cast. That film’s beloved Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) will also be featured in “I Am Groot,” a series of short episodes for the streaming service.
