Loki is back!
The new series from Marvel Studios is now streaming on Disney+, and it sure seems like the god of Mischief has a few tricks left up his sleeves.
When in The Marvel Timeline Does Loki Take Place?
Well, that is a fascinating question, really… and one that will surely evolve throughout the season.
The series, featuring Loki (the god of Mischief himself), takes place after the events of Endgame when Loki escapes his timeline with the Tesseract.
But considering we’re dealing with the Time Variance Authority, aka the TVA, well, things may soon change.
Tom Hiddleston returns as the title character, joined by Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant.
The Best Loki Quotes
I am ALWAYS quoting movies and incorporating my favorite Marvel quotes into my captions and conversations. I figured I can’t be the only one out there who does this, so I’m sharing my favorite quotes from Marvel’s Loki!
I am Loki of Asgard. And I am burdened with glorious purpose. – Loki
You are now moving at 1/16th speed, but feeling all that pain in real time. – Hunter B-15
Reset the timeline. – Hunter B-15
You cross me, there are deadly consequences. – Loki
Please sign to verify this is everything you’ve ever said. – Paperwork clerk / What? – Loki / Sign this, too. – Paperwork clerk
Please confirm to your knowledge that you are not a fully robotic being, were born an organic creature, and do in fact possess what many cultures would call a soul. – TVA Employee / What? “To my knowledge”? Do a lot of people not know if they’re robots? – Loki / That you for your confirmation. Please move through. – TVA Employee / What if I was a robot and I didn’t know it? – Loki / The machine would melt you from the inside out. Please move along, sir. – TVA Employee
Welcome to the Time Variance Authority. I’m Miss Minutes, and it’s my job to catch you up before you stand trial for your crimes. So let’s not waste another minute. Settle in, sharpen your pencils, and check this out. Long ago, there was a vast multiverse war. Countless unique timelines battled each other for supremacy, nearly resulting in the total destruction of, well, everything. But then, the all-knowing Time-Keepers emerged, bringing peace by reorganizing the multiverse into a single timeline, the Sacred Timeline. Now, the Time-Keepers protect and preserve the proper flow of time for everyone and everything. But sometimes, people like you veer off the path the Time-Keepers created. We call those Variants. Maybe you started an uprising or were just late for work. Whatever it was, stepping off your path created a nexus event, which, left unchecked, could branch off into madness, leading to another multiversal war. But, don’t worry, to make sure that doesn’t happen, the Time-Keepers created the TVA and all its incredible workers. The TVA has stepped in to fix your mistake and set time back on its predetermined path. Now that your actions have left you without a place on the timeline, you must stand trial for your offenses. So sit tight, and we’ll get you in front of a judge in no time. Just make sure you have your ticket and you’ll be seen by the next available attendant. For all time. Always. – Miss Minutes
Time-Keepers? The Sacred timeline? Who actually believes this bunkum? – Loki
Laufesyson. Variant L1130, AKA Loki Laufeyson, is charged with sequence violation 7-20-89. How do you plead? – Ravonna Renslayer / Madam, a god doesn’t plead. Look, this has been a very enjoyable pantomime, but I’d like to go home now. – Loki
Are you guilty or not guilty, sir? – Ravonna Renslayer / Guilty of being the God of Mischief? Yes. Guilty of finding all of this incredibly tedious? Yes. Guilty of a crime against the Sacred Timeline? Absolutely not, you have the wrong person. – Loki / Oh, really? And who should we have? – Ravonna Renslayer / I suspect, the Avengers. You see, I only came into possession of the Tesseract because they traveled through time, no doubt in a last-ditch effort to stave off my ascent to God King. – Loki / That’s quite an accusation. – Ravonna Renslayer / Believe me, you can smell the cologne of two Tony Starks. – Loki
Magic powers? They’re no good in the TVA, Mr. Laufeyson. – Ravonna Renslayer
You ridiculous bureaucrats will not dictate how my story ends! – Loki / It’s not your story, Mr. Laufeyson. It never was. – Ravonna Renslayer / You have no idea what I’m capable of! – Loki
I’m gonna burn thus place to the ground. – Loki / I’ll show you where my desk is, you can start there. – Agent Mobius
This place is a nightmare. – Loki / That’s another department. Now that department I’ll help you burn down. – Agent Mobius
I’m taking you some place to talk. – Agent Mobius / I don’t like to talk. – Loki / But you do like to lie, which you just did. Because we both know you love to talk. Talkie-talkie. – Agent Mobius
How long have you been here? – Loki / I don’t know. It’s hard to say, time passes differently here in the TVA. – Agent Mobius
The idea that your little club decides the fate of trillions of people across all of existence at the best of three space lizards, yes, it’s funny. It’s absurd. – Loki / I thought you didn’t like to talk? – Agent Mobius
For the record, this really does feel like a killing-me kind of a room. – Loki
Not big on trust are you? – Agent Mobius / Trust is for children and dogs. There’s only one person you can trust. – Loki / Yourself? I like it. Slap it on a T-shirt. – Agent Mobius
If the TVA truly oversees all of time, how have I never heard of you until now? – Loki / ‘Cause you never needed to. You’ve always lived within your set path. – Agent Mobius / I live within whatever path I choose. – Loki / Sure, you do. Okay, come have a seat. – Agent Mobius
I specialize in the pursuit of dangerous Variants. – Agent Mobius / Like myself? – Loki / No, particularly dangerous Variants. You’re just a little pussycat. – Agent Mobius
Space is big. That’d be a nice feather in your cap. “Loki, the King of Space.” – Agent Mobius / Mock me if you dare. – Loki / No, I’m not. Honestly, I’m actually a fan. Yeah. And I guess I’m wondering why does someone with so much range just wanna rule? – Agent Mobius
The first and most oppressive lie ever uttered was the song of freedom. – Loki / How’s that one go? – Agent Mobius / For nearly every living thing, choice breeds shame and uncertainly and regret. There’s a fork in every road, yet the wrong path always taken. – Loki
The Time-Keepers have built quite the circus, and I see the clowns are playing their parts to perfection. – Loki / Big metaphor guy. I love it. Makes you sound super smart. – Agent Mobius / I am smart. – Loki / I know. – Agent Mobius / Okay. – Loki / Okay. – Agent Mobius
It’s funny, for someone born to rule, you sure do lose a lot. You might even say it’s in your nature. – Agent Mobius / You know, things didn’t turn out so well for the last person who said that to me. – Loki / Oh, yeah, Phil Coulson. Didn’t the Avengers literally avenge him by defeating you? – Agent Mobius / Little solace to a dead man. – Loki
Let’s talk about your escapes. You’re really good at doing awful things, and then just getting away. – Agent Mobius / What can I say? I’m a mischievous scamp. – Loki
I can’t believe you were D.B Cooper. Come on! – Agent Mobius / I was young, and I lost a bet to Thor. Where was the TVA when I was meddling with these affairs of men? – Loki / We were right there with you, just surfing that Sacred Timeline. – Agent Mobius / So that has the Time Keepers’ seal of approval, did it? – Loki / Well, I wouldn’t think of it in terms of approval and disapproval. – Agent Mobius
All I seek is a deeper understanding of the fearsome God of Mischief. What makes Loki tick? – Agent Mobius
My choices are my own. – Loki
The TVA doesn’t just know your whole past, we know your whole life, how it’s all meant to be. Think of it as comforting. – Agent Mobius
You weren’t born to be king, Loki. You were born to cause pain and suffering and death. That’s how it is, that’s how it was, that’s how it will be. All so that others can achieve their best versions of themselves. – Agent Mobius
Mischievous scamp. – Agent Mobius about Loki
Give me the Tesseract or I’ll gut you like a fish, Casey. -Loki / What’s a fish? – Casey
Infinity Stones? How, how do you have these? – Loki / Oh, we actually get a lot of those. Yeah. Some of the guys use them as paperweights. Some of ’em. – Casey
You almost hit me! That’s so messed up. I do not forgive you. – Casey to Hunter B-15
I don’t enjoy hurting people. I don’t enjoy it. I do it because I have to, because I’ve had to. – Loki / Okay, explain that to me. – Agent Mobius / because it’s part of the illusion. It’s the cruel, elaborate trick conjured by the weak to inspire fear. – Loki / A desperate play for control. You do know yourself. – Agent Mobius / A villain. – Loki / That’s not how I see it. – Agent Mobius
I can’t offer you salvation, but maybe I can offer you something better. A fugitive Variant’s been killing our Minutemen. – Agent Mobius / And you need the God of Mischief to help you stop him? – Loki / That’s right. – Agent Mobius / Why me? – Loki / The Variant we’re hunting is… you. – Agent Mobius / I beg your pardon? – Loki
