There’s a lot of Loki and his brother Sam in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now a new series from Netflix has set a new standard for storytelling.
Netflix’s series Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston and directed by Tom Hooper, takes a look at a fictional version of the Loki character, one who has a lot to do with the events of the movie franchise.
The series is a reboot of a popular series from 2007, when a character called Loki was introduced as a child in the film.
Now, in 2017, we’re seeing Loki come back to Earth, with the Avengers teaming up with him to save humanity from an alien threat.
“Loki is one of the most significant heroes in the universe,” Hooper told Entertainment Weekly.
“He’s a character who has played a major role in the history of mankind.”
Hooper is currently writing the script for the series.
Hooper said that the character of Loki was “born on the edge of his mind.”
“He has an incredible amount of compassion, and he wants everyone to be happy,” Hoopers said.
“I wanted to create an interpretation of Loki that was more grounded in reality, but was also kind of like Loki as a kid, but with a very human touch.”
Loki’s brother Sam, played by Jon Hamm, has a similar backstory, and Hooper says that the two siblings share a lot in common.
“They both grew up in a time where the world was very bleak,” Hoops said.
The brothers’ father is Loki, who was created by Stan Lee in 1938.
Hoopers explained that when Loki was young, the two of them shared a special bond that became stronger the longer they lived together.
“It was a lot like the bonding between my son and me when I was growing up,” Hoppers said.
Hoops says the brothers have a lot going on in their lives at the beginning of the series, but the most interesting story is their journey to Earth.
“The Loki of the first film was so focused on his relationship with his brother, and the fact that he wanted to become the hero, and that was the main thing that he cared about,” Hoop said.
In this series, the brothers are sent to Earth by Thor to save the world.
When Loki returns to Asgard, he finds the city destroyed and a meteorite with a devastating effect on Asgard.
“There’s a huge amount of darkness there, and it’s going to destroy Asgard,” Hoopes said.
It’s this threat that drives the brothers to fight.
“Thor has to save everyone,” Hoope said.
While the brothers don’t meet up with each other on the show, the series does show the effects of a meteor that landed on the island of Midgard.
“What the meteor did to the planet, it really changed the landscape on Earth,” Hooping said.
Loki also has an interesting backstory with the Ancient One, a character in Norse mythology who’s also known as the God of War.
The character, known for his violent and often violent nature, was one of Loki’s favorite heroes, and his death at the hands of the Ancient God was a major plot point in the movie.
The Ancient One is an entity who wields power and can transform himself into a god.
Hoop described the Ancient Heresies as “the biggest monsters in the Asgardian pantheon,” and explained that his character’s death in the movies was “a big moment for the world.”
“Lokos death was very significant in the way that he was a symbol of the destruction of Asgard,” he said.
There’s also a major character who isn’t on the series named King Loki, and while Hoop has not revealed any more details about the character, he said that he is “probably the best character in the entire movie.”
Hoops also talked about the show’s upcoming second season, and how he is looking forward to getting his hands on the first season.
“In the first year of this series we will have the opportunity to show everything that’s been happening to the Asgardians,” Hooped said.
However, in the second year, Hoops has a plan in mind for the show.
“We’re going to do some fun stuff with Loki and the rest of the team, and we’re going do a lot with Thor,” Hopps said.
