Loki’s New Premiere Date: ‘Wednesdays Are The New Fridays’
Wednesdays are the new Fridays, at least according to Tom Hiddleston! In typical trickster fashion, Hiddleston surprised everyone by announcing Loki‘s new premiere date: Wednesday, June 9.
As the shapeshifter of the MCU, it makes sense that Loki would do an about-face, but it’s unclear why Marvel decided to change the watch days from Fridays to Wednesdays (both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier were both released on Fridays). What If…? is being released this summer, but given that Loki is only six episodes, it’s unlikely that there was going to be overlap. Perhaps because Loki is a bit of an outcast, the studio thought it would align more closely with his character if the release date was different from the other Disney+ shows too.
From the Loki trailer that was released last month, we know that the TVA (Time Variance Agency) has captured Loki after he picked up the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame and spawned a new timeline. He teams up with Owen Wilson’s Mobius and the rest of the TVA to (allegedly) help fix the timelines that he has broken. We all know that Loki isn’t necessarily the most trustworthy person, but he claims that he’ll be a team player. Whether that turns out to be true is yet to be seen.
As we already learned, Loki is likely have a Season 2, so we might have to start making sure that we keep our Wednesday nights clear! Marvel recently released their epic Phase 4 trailer, so this just adds to the overall excitement.
