Loki definitely wants to build up the hype in anticipation of its impending release. Why else would Disney and Marvel release this new still image straight from the show?
This exclusive from Entertainment Weekly still shows our titular hero(?) Loki in a lovely grey TVA-issue prison jumpsuit. As an accessory, he has an equally as lovely black choker/tracker combo thing around his neck. Clearly, this is the height of fashion for TVA internees. Or at least, what passes for it.
Flanking either side of Loki are a pair of TVA officers in beautiful black prison guard attire. Breastplates, arm guards, and German stahlhelm-style helmets are their choice of fashion here. The TVA-issue armbands seal the deal here, as do the sci-fi stun batons. Clearly, the Stormtrooper fashion style is not out of date for the TVA. Yet. Perhaps time will tell. Or not, given that the TVA has been around for…who knows how long in absolute temporal terms? If they were going to change their fashion style, they would probably have done so sooner.
Loki: Cell Block TVA?
Given that Loki just released a new poster for the series 2 days ago, it’s pretty clear that they want to build up hype for the series for when it debuts on Disney+. Now my biggest question is: what’s up with the rampant Nazi imagery here? Is the TVA here supposed to be some kind of temporal totalitarian regime? It could be an interesting concept. Time is ruled by a dictatorship that doesn’t allow dissent. This is pure speculation, mind you. We’ll just have to see what all the Nazi imagery is about when Loki premieres on June 9, 2021.
Disney and Marvel just released a new still from their upcoming Loki Disney+ series. The still depicts Loki in his trendsetting new prison attire, in addition to those of his TVA guards. What to know what that’s all about? Catch the series on Disney+ on June 9, 2021 to find out.
