Marvel Studios had announced last year that they would make spin-off series on many of the MCU characters.
The following shows are WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. So the next couple of years would be exciting for Marvel fans.
The character Loki has always intrigued the fans since he first appeared in Thor in 2011.
He is played by the versatile British actor Tom Hiddleston. The character is difficult to play. But Tom has magnificently portrayed the various shades of the character on screen.
I mean, imagine being Thor’s brother but not playing on his side. Rather, being a villain, everyone loathes. Well, almost everyone. *shrugs*
The God of Mischief
Loki is the Norse God of Mischief both in Norse Mythology and Marvel Comics. The comics version is inspired by the Norse god.
Laufeyson is the son of Laufey the king of giants of Jotunheim. When Laufey was defeated by Odin, Loki was given to Odin as a peace offering. Odin raised the boy along with his son Thor.
Odin The Allfather is the ruler of Asgard and the protector of nine realms. Thor his son is the God of Thunder.
No matter how shrewd, Loki is highly skilled in magic and combat. He can conjure up weapons and create illusions. But he uses these powers to play tricks on others.
Loki is a very unpredictable character, to say the least. He has teamed up with both villains and heroes. So he is a grey character who steps in and out of light and darkness.
In 2011’s Thor Loki plots to take the throne of Asgard as he considers himself the rightful ruler. He tricks Thor to attack Jotunheim starting a war. Thor was cast out into exile on Midgard (Earth) by Odin. He took the Throne of Asgard as Odin went into cosmic sleep.
He then plans to start a war with Jotunheim. Thor was eventually forgiven by Odin and returns to foil Loki’s plans.
Loki then returns in 2012’s Avengers as the main villain. He plans to conquer the earth with the help of the Chitauri Army.
In Thor: The Dark World we see the good side of Loki as he helps Thor in the fight with the Dark Elves. Though in the end, we find out he has faked his death and took the throne from Odin by deceit.
In Thor Ragnarok, he comes to the rescue of Asgardians. He also helps Thor in defeating their Evil Sister Hela.
Unfortunately, he was killed by the Mad Titan Thanos in Infinity War. He gave up his life to save Thor.
Nonetheless, in The Endgame, he manages to escape during a time travel Mishap.
