Loki - a Different Story about the God of Mischief

The god of mischief Loki is one of the main characters in cinematography. So many movies are created about him! That's why when you hear the name you remember first of all Marvel Comics. All the movies about Loki are rather standard: they show the god as a malicious even though humorful guy who is always about doing something completely crazy. 

This movie is different though. It shows us Loki from a completely different point of view. While normally, we don`t see clearly whether he is bad enough to harm people intentionally, in this movie, we see somebody who even cannot handle his own destiny. Here, Loki is confused and wants to be rather left in peace. But instead, he has to fight. So, let us have a look at a different Loki, the Loki created by Kate Herron and played by Tom Hiddleston.

Some background information might be needed for those who don`t know the prehistory. In Avengers: Infinity War, Loki dies at the hands of Thanos. Thanos simply breaks the god`s neck. However, Loki gets a second chance. He manages to stay alive and jump in the time when he was not killed yet.

So, the new series begins with that jump. He is happy and believes it is the right time to play his own show. But he lands in front of one of the TVA officers.

What is the TVA agency and why are they important? They know all about fate and the Sacred Timeline. Everything is predetermined, even the mischiefs of the mighty god. It happens sometimes that one or another Time Variant (And Loki is the one) breaks the Sacred Timeline, he shall respond for the crime. 

So, Loki is arrested. He is given a choice: to collaborate with Agent Mobius, one of the TVA agents, and help him to find and arrest an extremely dangerous Time Variant, or he will disappear, and this time, irreversibly. 

Of course, Loki agrees to collaborate.

Fate Is the Keyword

What makes the movie stand out though? Loki is definitely not a unique character. He is very important to cinematography. The God of Mischief has already appeared in many movies, every time, his image was different. What is so special about him and the plot this time?

We would say, Fate is the thing that makes the movie stand out. When Loki is arrested by the TVA, he, to his horror, understands that everything is dictated by fate. Even he, one of the almighty gods, cannot change anything. Even his mischiefs are predetermined!

A Villain or a Positive Character?

Well, Loki is a villain even though a humorous one. However, this time, he is outsmarted by the TVA. He is nothing more than a Time Variant, and he has a choice: to combine his powers with one of the TVA officers Agent Mobius to chase and catch a very dangerous Time Variant or he will die, this time, forever.

Loki has to accept the offer. Is it also Fate or just a coincidence? We have yet to discover it. 

Finally, when Mobius asks Loki why he with such a range wants just to rule, Loki finally admits, even though reluctantly, the fact that he was trying to resist at the TVA - it is just his fate, it was predetermined.

Some More Special Details

One more thing that attracts attention is the controversy. The monochromatic reality of the TVA is the most controversial, we would say, the most unsuitable setting for Loki. He simply doesn`t fit there, but he lands specifically in that environment. Maybe for the first time, Loki is really horrified by the understanding that nothing can change fate. 

So, as you can see, the movie tells us a story that is quite different from the typical story about the God of Mischief. Even the God of Mischief is different! What else can we expect from the coming series? For now, it is difficult to tell. Let`s wait and see.
