It feels like all the announcements we get about games, films, and TV at the moment are delays. The pandemic has really screwed up a lot of production on creative projects, and it's no one's fault that teams have to take the right amount of time to create their visions. Somehow, though, Marvel's most recent announcement about Loki is rather the opposite, and the release date is being moved up.
If you've been paying attention to Wandavision or The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, your Fridays have probably been preoccupied with watching Marvel series. But now, as Tom Hiddleston proudly exclaims, "Wednesdays are the new Fridays" - and Loki's release is being moved up two days to accommodate the change Disney has made.
This Loki trailer from Disney has got us really hyped up for the series:
The short video released on the Loki Twitter account announces that the series will be changing to a midweek release cycle -though this might be for all Marvel series going forward. Maybe Disney just wants to see if releasing shows in the middle of the week suits the average person better, but for now, we're just happy we're getting to see the show just a touch earlier.
That means that instead of watching the first episode of Loki on June 11 2021, you will be able to tune into Disney Plus for the experience on June 9. And honestly, I can't wait. During Phase Three of the MCU, Loki goes from just causing trouble to actively helping his brother Thor defeat Hela in Thor: Ragnarok. He then (spoiler?) died at the hands of Thanos at the very beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, though we know the character isn't gone since we're now talking about his show.

This new Loki timeline is created when the Avengers failed to retrieve the Tesseract during the time travel sequence of Avengers: Endgame. At this point, Loki picks it up instead and escapes, but as we know from Loki trailers, he's been caught again by a mysterious entity - the Time Variance Authority. And that is, so far, all we really know. We're looking forward to June 9 to find out more about what Loki is up to now, and how he inevitably gets himself into more trouble.
