First it was WandaVision, then it was The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Now it’s time for Loki to begin streaming for Disney+ subscribers, so here’s the lowdown on when the show is available and what to expect.
Those who have followed all of the Marvel movies and TV series will know the villain Loki, aka Thor’s adopted brother, all too well. Now he stars in his own spin-off series, which takes place after the events which went down in the movie Avengers: Endgame.
It starts off with a version of Loki being taken to the Time Variance Authority and giving him an ultimatum – he can either help to fix the timeline so that a larger threat than him is stopped, or he can be erased from existence as he is a time variant.
The first episode, which falls into the crime thriller genre, sees Loki embark on his quest to travel through time and make the required changes to human history. It becomes available from today, Wednesday June 9, to stream.
The best way to watch Loki is with a subscription to Disney+. There is not currently a free trial for new members, but the good news is that the monthly price is just $7.99. Alternatively, you can go for the bundle of Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+ for $13.99 a month, saving $5 in the process.
