"Something to think about is the [show’s] logo, which seems to refresh and restore. The font of how Loki is spelt out seems to keep changing shape."
Phase Four of Marvel Studios franchise is well and truly underway. 'WandaVision' kicked it off on Disney+ at the beginning of the year, and we're currently waiting on our final two episodes of 'The Falcon and the Winter Soldier'. Until they are out of the way, Tom Hiddleston and his 'Loki' TV show are quietly waiting in the wings for their moment to shine in June.
In a recent interview with Empire, Hiddleston briefly teased fans about what's in store for us. As is everything with Marvel and Disney, he didn't reveal all that much about the plot, but went more along the lines of the hidden meaning behind what we've already seen.
Ultimately, there's something in the 'Loki' TV show logo that we need to pay attention to. He told the publication: "I want to preserve the freshness of the show for when it emerges, but something to think about is the [show’s] logo, which seems to refresh and restore.
"The font of how Loki is spelt out seems to keep changing shape. Loki is the quintessential shapeshifter. His mercurial nature is that you don’t know whether, across the MCU, he’s a hero or a villain or an anti-hero. You don’t know whether you can trust him.
"He literally and physically changes shape into an Asgardian guard, or into Captain America repeatedly. Thor talks about how he could change into a snake.
"I think that shapeshifting logo might give you an idea that Loki, the show, is about identity, and about integrating the disparate fragments of the many selves that he can be, and perhaps the many selves that we are.
"I thought it was very exciting because I’ve always found Loki a very complex construct. Who is this character who can wear so many masks, and changes shape, and seems to change his external feeling on a sixpence?
What version of Tom Hiddleston's Loki that we get here is anyone's guess. Originally starting out as an adversary to Chris Hemsworth's Thor in his first movie outing, Loki eventually came around to becoming an anti-hero through various mischievous run-ins with The Avengers and his brother.
From what we've gathered, the 'Loki' TV series begins after the character picks up the Tesseract during 'Avengers: Endgame', placing him in a prison with Owen Wilson. It's important to remember that Loki did in fact die in 'Infinity War', and this is a version of the character from the past. But has he managed to cheat death? It wouldn't be the first time.
'Loki' begins on Disney+ on June 11.
