Nobody Is Ever Really Gone

We know that in comics nobody ever really dies.  

There is always a parallel universe version, a clone or some time travel shenanigans to allow the cash cow to return after some sales boosting death.  In the MCU it appears that characters only die when they can’t afford the actors fee anymore.

If you are one of the five people on the planet yet to see the last two Avengers movies then turn back now. 

Spoilers, Lovely Spoilers

There are three TV series spinning off from the MCU to provide content for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service.  

One of these is Loki.

Tom Hiddleston is to reprise his role as the God Of Mischief, the adopted brother of Thor and foster son of Odin of Asgard.
Despite his apparent demise in Avengers: Infinity War, the subsequent film Avengers: Endgame included an escape route to allow an earlier version of Loki to run free.  This version of Loki was directly from the end of the first Avengers movie, so still an antagonist rather than tricksy anti-hero and Thor annoyance of later movies.

It turns out News was shared a while ago back at the Walt Disney Company Investor Day 2019 presentation.  This news is only just reaching us normies thanks to the guys at MarvelTalk on Twitter.  It shows Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige presenting a first look at this new series.

Judging by the movie theatre in the background, the photo could confirm that in the series, the character ends up on Earth in 1975 and appears to support the leaks that he will be visiting key points in history to manipulate events.

No idea how this will fold back into the regular MCU timeline.

It’s expected a lot more Marvel Studios will be revealed to the clapping, barking seals that make up your average Con audience this Summer during panels at Comic-Con in July and D23 in August.

Oh, fucking grow up!

I love D23.  If only because I like to see the haunted, pained faces of people still clinging on and refusing to accept they are a battered wife and Star Wars is the abusive husband who has just come home drunk.
