If you’re familiar with the MCU, then you’ll already be aware of Loki and the anti-hero’s shenanigans. You’ll also likely be aware that the character died in Avengers: Infinity War before managing to subvert his death thanks to some complicated time travel and overlapping timelines.

As a result, Loki is now set to live on in his own TV series, which is sure to be a bag of tricks.
