If there's one thing that shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have revealed, it's that fans are here for the Disney+ format of MCU storytelling.
The extra layer of mystery that comes with the weekly release of episodes seems to captivate fans in a way that Marvel Studios has never before been able to capture. But much of the intrigue for WandaVision specifically also comes from the fact that fans really didn't know what to expect going into it.
The same can be said for the upcoming Loki series. Even after fans got the first full trailer for the God of Mischief's Disney+ debut, it actually seemed to provide more questions than answers. Yet, Marvel big boss Kevin Feige has claimed that the God of Mischief's streaming debut will have “more impact on the MCU than any of the (Disney+) shows thus far."
But thanks to the occasional merchandise update that's just bound to happen in this industry, it seems that Marvel Studios will once again prefer to keep fans in the dark going into their third Disney+ series.
"WELL, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?"
Two new Funko figures for Marvel Studios' Loki have been revealed by Entertainment Weekly for both the God of Mischief himself and his newfound warden/partner in Owen Wilson's TVA agent Mobius.
Both Funko Pops! for Marvel Studios Loki can be seen below:
These Funko figures, and many more, are now available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth.
Following suit with most of the Disney+ show's promotional material, these two Pops! don't reveal much about the series as they are modeled after Loki and Mobius in their classic TVA attire that they will be wearing for a bulk of the show.
Additionally, a new Marvel Legends figure for Mobius has also been unveiled. Similar to his new Funko Pop!, Mobius is carrying his own TVA glow stick of destiny that trailers have shown to be capable of wiping anyone from existence with a simple strike.
THE TVA GOES FUNKO FOR MCU'S LATEST DISNEY+ SERIES
It's very cool to see Owen Wilson take so much of the spotlight in the marketing and other promotional merchandise for Marvel Studios' Loki, as Marvel already seems confident that Wilson's character will be a new fan-favorite.
In fact, it's already been promised by Feige himself that Hiddleston and Wilson will make "one of the most popular pairings" that Marvel Studios has ever had to offer. But even so, the first thing that fans are sure to notice is not what has been revealed with this pair of Pops!, but rather what's missing.
Although it is exciting to finally receive confirmation that Loki will be Funko-fied once again in his new TVA getup for his Disney+ debut, marketing for the series has shown that Marvel's Trickster will have a variety of looks throughout the show's run. So expect a couple more variations of Loki's 2021 Funko look.
Additionally, head writer Michael Waldron also claimed that no Marvel character - MCU or otherwise - was off limits to them when making Loki for Disney+, as long as they were "within their rights." This means that the Funko line for Marvel Studios' Loki has near-endless possibilities for who could "Pop!" up within it, with anyone from Kang the Conqueror to Uatu the Watcher being among them.
