Kevin Feige is keeping plans tightly under wraps for the upcoming Marvel series on Disney’s new Disney+ streaming service, which is par for the course. However, images from April’s Walt Disney Company Investor’s Day were released online over the weekend and among them was the reveal of the new Loki TV show logo, as well as a teaser image that gives some hints about the series.
In one of the released photos, Feige stands in front of a screen that shows Tom Hiddleston as Loki, in the middle of a busy city street in 1975. There has been speculation that the TV series will feature time travel, following the events at the end of Avengers: Endgame, though it’s worth noting that Loki is also an immortal god. This scene could be a flashback.

It’s unclear how this new series will handle Loki’s death at the end of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which was seemingly permanent. It also remains to be seen how heavily the Disney+ Marvel series will tie into the overall MCU moving forward. In addition to Loki, the streaming service is set to air WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, and Marvel’s What If…?
Disney+ is set to launch Nov. 12, 2019.
