The upcoming Disney+ TV show “Loki” will follow the alternate version of the character in the movie “Avengers: Endgame” — the Loki who escaped with the Tesseract. The version of Loki that Marvel fans have followed since the end of “The Avengers” is still dead at this point in the MCU, having been brutally killed by Thanos in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

In the upcoming “Loki” TV series, Loki will jump around in time and play significant roles in some of the most historical events on Planet Earth. While the Loki that Marvel fans have followed in “Thor: The Dark World,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Avengers: Infinity War” was portrayed as a noble god and an ally of Thor, the Loki that they will see in the upcoming series is the trickster version of the character. The series will feature the version of Loki who just attempted a failed takeover of the planet with his army of Chitauri.

At the start of “Avengers: Infinity War,” Loki tried to trick Thanos by pretending that he was his old backstabbing self. Unfortunately, his trick did not work, and he ended up being killed by Thanos right in front of his brother, Thor.

In the follow-up movie “Avengers: Endgame,” Captain America and Iron Man failed to retrieve the Tesseract when they traveled back in time because Hulk suddenly appeared and knocked it out of Iron Man’s hands. Loki then picked up the Tesseract after it slid over to him and used it to teleport away.

While the time travel element in “Avengers: Endgame” seemed quite problematic, the upcoming series will confirm that the chances that the Avengers made when they traveled back in time had indeed created alternate timelines. In the upcoming series, it will be revealed that in an alternate universe out there, there’s a villainous Loki who’s still in possession of the Tesseract.

As the upcoming series gives Marvel fans a picture of what actually happened to Loki after he popped out of “Avengers: Endgame,” “Loki” will feature a less power-mad version of the character. The reason is that unlike in “The Avengers,” where he was mind controlled by Thanos, in “Loki” he’s already out of Thanos’ grasp.
