Loki trailer potentially teases the return of a major MCU character

They're on screen for less than a second, but we're really hoping this is exactly who we think it is...

The latest trailer for Loki has dropped, and unsurprisingly, the internet has been relentless in its breakdown of each and every scene and second of it.


In case you haven't watched it yet - and you should, because it looks great - here is the latest trailer for the new Disney+ show...

The plot feels eerily reminiscent of that episode of Rick & Morty where Rick is called in front of the Council of Ricks to account for his time-and-space-hopping crimes. Perhaps part of the reason for this is because the head writer of the new series Loki is Michael Waldron, a writer and producer on Rick & Morty.

But the other part is because we actually go back through the other timelines that Loki (Tom Hiddleston) has previously visited, with his own selfish goals in mind and little thought given to the consequences of those actions.

Consequences including... well, this one, in which we clearly see that the Earth has been ruined and the tilting, ruined Avengers Tower in Manhattan.


Anyway, that isn't really why we're here.

The trailer gives us glimpses of lots of different timelines, showing all of the different lives that Loki has lived since he snatched the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame and how he is now paired up with Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) to set them right.

And in one of those glimpses, in a shot that lasts less than a second, we see Loki sitting and having a seemingly nice moment on an alien planet with someone, both of them looking away from the camera, towards what appears to be crashing meteors.

But who does this look like to you?


Yep, it kinda looks like Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson), right?

Potentially looking out over the body of water that covers most of the Vormir, where she died exchanging her life so Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) could get his hands on the Soul Stone in Avengers: Endgame.

As we previously speculated, the announcement that the Black Widow movie will now be dropping in the middle of the Loki series got our attention, potentially because the events of one directly impact the outcome of the other.

Which isn't to say for definite that the above lady is Black Widow, but it would make a certain amount of sense of it was!


Loki will debut on Disney+ on Friday, 11 June and then Black Widow is set to launch simultaneously in cinemas and on Disney+ on Friday, 9 July.

Meanwhile, why not listen to our breakdown of episode three of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier right here, and our deep dive on theories into how it will impact the rest of the MCU as we know it?
