The first clip of Marvel’s Loki series has finally arrived! And honestly, the episodes can’t hit Disney+ soon enough.

It’s been a long, sad year without new Marvel content to keep fans busy, especially during an unprecedented health crisis where we could also use a distraction or two. But although it may be a while before we see a new MCU story in theaters, fans have a lot to look forward to on Disney+ during the first half of 2021. That includes the Loki series that, until now, we didn’t know all that much about.

During Disney’s Investor Day, however, fans were treated to a first look at the God of Mischief’s new story — and it looks every bit as bananas and glorious as you’d expect.

Check out the exclusive clip of Loki here:

The clip opens with Loki stealing the Tesseract during Avengers: Endgame, going on to reveal exactly where that move took him. We see him waking in a desert, but the clip quickly shifts tone. Not only does Loki appear to be facing some jail time courtesy of the Time Variance Authority (TVA) from Marvel Comics, but it seems like he might be headed on a mission for them.

Judging by Loki’s words later in the clip, that mission may just lead him back to his brother and Heimdall. (We know Loki couldn’t really be gone for good!)

The footage also offers a look at Owen Wilson’s character, whose name has yet to be revealed. That hasn’t stopped fans from connecting him to Mr. Mobius M. Mobius, however, an executive at the TVA. It looks like fans were right about him playing the miniseries’ antagonist — and from the small amount we’ve seen so far, it looks like Wilson’s going to do an awesome job.

On top of dropping footage, Disney’s Investor Day also gave fans a premiere month for Loki. It appears Tom Hiddleston’s latest venture will arrive in May 2021, following after WandaVision in January and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in March.

After all the news this week, it looks like Marvel fans are going to be well fed in the new year. And after 2020, we could use certainly the excitement!
