REPORT: How Marvel's Loki Series Gets Around His Infinity War Death

Thor Ragnarok Loki

Marvel's Loki TV series, which will air on the upcoming Disney streaming service, has found a sense of direction. The show will reportedly follow the God of Mischief as he influences historical events throughout human history.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Disney+ series "will follow Loki as the trickster and shapeshifter pops up throughout human history as unlikely influencer on historical events." Marvel declined to comment when reached by THR.

Loki, of course, met his untimely end in Avengers: Infinity War. When Thanos threatened his brother Thor's life, Loki lashed out at him with a knife. In retaliation, Thanos choked Loki to death. Loki's body remained on the Asgardian refugee ship when Thanos and the Black Order blew it up, likely hoping to kill Thor in the process. As such, many believed that to be the end of the fan-favorite character once and for all.

Nevertheless, a live-action Loki series with Tom Hiddleston set to reprise the role was announced last November. Since then, reports have claimed Hiddleston will only serve as a narrator on the show, which would be centered on Loki's life story. However, official details are still being kept under wraps.

The Loki series will be the first of several planned Marvel Cinematic Universe projects for the streaming service focusing on secondary characters from the films. There are also rumored miniseries featuring Falcon and Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan; and Scarlet Witch, featuring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany.

While Disney+ is targeted to launch this year, no release date has been announced for the as-yet untitled Loki series.
