First Loki Social Media Reactions Arrive With Glorious Praise

On Wednesdays we wear green. Comic book fans and non-comic book fans alike everywhere are getting themselves ready for the series premiere of Loki launching later this week on Disney+. The show will see the return of Tom Hiddleston back in the role as the God of Mischief himself. When we last left Loki, he met his untimely end by the hands of Thanos at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War. However, after stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame, an alternate version of Loki is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA), a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline. They give Loki a choice: face being erased from existence due to being a “time-variant”, or help fix the timeline and stop a greater threat.

Described as a crime thriller, the series stars Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Judge Ravonna Renslayer, and Lovecraft Country actress Wunmi Mosaku as a high ranking Hunter of the TVA. Rounding out the undisclosed part of the cast are Sophia Di Martino and Richard E. Grant.

During the weekend, critics were able to screen the first two episodes of the upcoming show. What are they saying you may ask? Well, the reactions are simply glorious! We at FandomWire have compiled a list of our favorite reactions which you can see right down below!
