Loki takes a walk through time in first image from Disney Plus series

Loki in Thor Ragnorok

If there’s one thing the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made abundantly clear, it’s that you should never count Loki out. Marvel’s god of mischief seemingly met his demise yet again in Avengers: Infinity War, only to get a second chance at life in Avengers: Endgame.

Now he’s primed to return for a solo television series on the Disney Plus streaming service, and the first image from the show has found its way online.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed the first image and logo for the Loki series during Walt Disney Company Investors’ Day, and it subsequently ended up online (as all things do).

The image features Loki star Tom Hiddleston walking down the street during what appears to be 1975 — the year Steven Spielberg’s Jaws hit theaters. This suggests that the rumors of a time-travel element in the series could indeed be true (unless it’s actually a flashback, of course).

Michael Waldron, a writer and producer on the upcoming season of Cartoon Network’s irreverent sci-fi comedy Rick & Morty, will oversee the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Waldron will write the series pilot, act as showrunner, and serve as executive producer. Waldron previously developed a pilot for Showtime and is currently working a series called Florida Man with director Steven Soderbergh.

Loki is just one of many Marvel Cinematic Universe spinoffs currently in development for Disney Plus. Other shows include a series focusing on the Scarlet Witch and her robotic paramour, Vision, and a team-up between Captain America’s two sidekicks, the Winter Soldier and the Falcon. As with Loki, the actors who played these characters on the big screen are expected to return for their respective Disney Plus series, which will reportedly be six to eight episodes long.

Marvel isn’t the only big-name franchise coming to Disney Plus. Disney is also developing two live-action Star Wars shows for the streaming network. A new season of the fan-favorite Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series will arrive on Disney Plus later this year, while actor and comedian Josh Gad is developing a Muppets revival for the service.
