Sed ut perspiciatis unde.
Marvel has launched a brand new teaser for Loki season 2 – and the brand new footage might need spoiled a key plot level forward of the present’s return.
The 45-second trailer, which you’ll be able to watch under, is full of loads of never-before-seen clips. Given how quick this newest Loki season 2 teaser is, it’s exhausting to discern a lot – if something – about its plot. That stated, there’s something that the teaser seems to provide away concerning the Disney Plus collection’ sophomore season.
Earlier than we dig into what that’s, although, watch the teaser:
Are you excited? We’re excited – though as we recommended above, the most recent footage might need ruined a particular story thread from the forthcoming Marvel Section 5 present – and it’s a plot level that appears to have its roots in Avengers: Endgame‘s time heist.
Due to Loki season 2’s first trailer, we already knew that the god of mischief will probably be pulled via area and time in his subsequent Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) outing. It revealed that Loki will journey to the previous, current, and future, with that story beat being doubled-down on on this trailer.
What we didn’t know – or, at the very least, what we didn’t count on – is that Loki will apparently be caught in some kind of Groundhog Day-style state of affairs. The newest footage teases that this might be the case, with Loki telling an off-screen character (on the 0:02 mark) that “what I’m about to let you know goes to be exhausting to imagine… once more”.
It’s secure to imagine that he’s chatting with the brand new model of Agent Mobius right here. That’s primarily based on the ending of Loki episode 6, aka the season 1 finale, and the second season’s first trailer which a) noticed Loki meet Mobius 2.0 in a distinct actuality, and b) crew up with this Mobius after Loki explains who he’s and fills Mobius in on season 1’s time-hopping occasions.
If Loki is speaking to Mobius firstly of this teaser, it’s clear that he’s trapped in a Groundhog Day-like time loop. Meaning, like Invoice Murray’s Phil Connor, Loki should hunt down Mobius 2.0 each time the day resets, armed with new data, to finally get out of his sticky state of affairs. It’s a state of affairs that was seemingly teased in Loki season 2’s first poster, which you’ll be able to see under, and which reveals numerous incarnations of Loki trapped on an endless Escher-like spiral walkway, which additional factors to a ‘trapped in a time-loop’ storyline.

Okay, so what’s this explicit plot beat obtained to do with Avengers: Endgame‘s time heist?
For starters, in direction of the top of the teaser, Loki seems to have assembled his personal Avengers-like squad to assist him conjure up a plan or two. The primary of these entails stabilizing his physique so he can stay in a single place.
The second plan? Stopping Victor Well timed, one in every of season 2’s anticipated villains, from stoking the fires of the multiverse’s collapse. We see an out-of-focus Well timed wanting on as somebody performs with a miniature figurine of Mobius 2.0 who, as teased at numerous factors within the newest teaser, embarks on a space-walk in direction of the multiverse’s diverging timelines. This begs the query: why is Well timed getting somebody to re-enact Mobius 2.0’s mission (albeit on a small-scale stage) if he isn’t attempting to cease Mobius from stopping the multiverse’s collapse?
In any case, that’s what each multiversal variation of Kang the Conqueror – of which Well timed is one – needs. The multiverse’s collapse implies that each timeline will converge and, as they collide with each other, it’ll reignite the Multiversal Conflict. Well timed isn’t trying to assist Loki and firm save the day, so he’ll wish to work out what Mobius, Loki, and the remainder of the crew are planning, and cease them from succeeding.
Loki and his crew, then, could must re-enact the Avengers‘ time-heist plan from Endgame to journey, effectively, again in time to place a cease to Well timed’s nefarious scheme on the supply. In abstract: count on loads of high-stakes time-traveling and mind-bending escapades to ensue within the second season of among the finest Disney Plus reveals ever made.
