The first reactions for Marvel Studios’ newest Disney Plus series Loki starring Tom Hiddleston have hit the web.
With the premiere of the highly-anticipated new series Loki a few days way, some have had the opportunity to have an early glimpse at the first two episodes. After the success of both WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, it appears that Marvel Studios has another big hit on its hands.
Here are a few early reactions to Tom Hiddleston’s Loki:
Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson are great together. Hiddleston adds a lot of emotional depth to #Loki and his moments with Owen Wilson are fantastic. Wilson brings A game with him making him a welcomed addition to the MCU and I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes.

#Loki has hands down my favorite first TV episode for Marvel Studios yet.
Tom Hiddleston is just too good in the role, picking up 2012’s Loki instantly. He’s brilliant.
Early exposition comes with awesome details for MCU fans. I really like the start. Lots of potential here! pic.twitter.com/wY6HiYzGHC

#LOKI is unpredictable in ways that I feel were lacking in Disney+'s other MCU shows. It doesn't waste time dragging out big reveals, leaving plenty of room for more and making it nearly impossible to telegraph what's coming next. We're all just along for the wild, glorious ride.

#Loki Early Reaction:
The first two episodes of Loki are INCREDIBLE! Marvel really took a character who seemed to have no more story to be told and completely reinvented him in a fun & original way! I’m excited to see what else this show has in store!?? pic.twitter.com/J40ArAyIj5

I've seen the first 2 episodes of #Loki & I'm LOVING it so far. It's a time-traveling detective show that's laying groundwork for the MCU multiverse while also being about identity & confronting ugly truths about ourselves. The Tom Hiddleston/Owen Wilson bromance is my favorite pic.twitter.com/w9yLLHGEHJ

Got to see the first 2 episodes of #Loki and it’s really promising so far…
An okay but clunky premiere followed by a fantastic second episode, a intriguing crime thriller but also a series that excellently delves into Loki’s psyche.

#Loki is an absolute blast. Tom Hiddleston is back as the God of Mischief and gives his best performance to date. The connectivity of this show is evident and fans will appreciate every detail – Marvel has found a way to expand the MCU and do so in such a clever and unique way. pic.twitter.com/BOHPQVvArB

After a drought in MCU content in 2020 due to the pandemic, 2021 has really come in swinging for the franchise. Sure, 2018-2019 were pretty massive years given the presence of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, but with new shows on Disney Plus as well as four theatrical films releasing this year, it looks like 2021 is the most jammed-packed in the MCU’s history. It’s reassuring to hear that this new series is likely to be another critical hit from the studio, and another sign that bringing it to long-form storytelling on streaming only enriches the lore further.
