The first trailer for Loki dropped last week and honestly, I’m still reeling. I honestly had no idea that the series was filming let alone so far into production that we were able to get a trailer and a date announcement! (It’s been a great month!)
But…beyond the initial hype, there’s a small detail in the latest trailer that I haven’t heard people really discussing and that’s the idea that Thor and Heimdall could make an appearance in this series.
Toward the end of the trailer we see a different version of the God of Mischief; a slick-haired Tom Hiddleston interpretation of the character wearing a pair of black shades and a suit and immediately fans were distracted. He started being dubbed in this look, D.B Cooper (who the heck is D.B Cooper?) and yeah…like I said before, fans were distracted. So distracted in fact that they missed the greatest bombshell of the trailer.
Loki says, “Brother, when I’m down…you better be ready.”
Is this a blatant clue that we will get to see Hemsworth reprise his role as the God of Thunder in this series in a fun, exciting way? And if Hemsworth is returning as Thor, shouldn’t we get to see Idris Elba don the golden armor and yellow eye contacts once more to play Heimdall? In fact, we need everyone back. Anthony Hopkins as Odin and Rene Russo as Frigga. It’ll be fun!
Ooh, I’m excited for this series and whatever it may mean for the future of the MCU.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
