The MCU is no stranger to time travel. It’s woven within the fabric of many of its stories, with Avengers: Endgame using it to change the course of Marvel.

Disney+ Loki series is the latest film to take on time travel, but not in the way you think.

If you recall, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleson) debuted in the first Avengers film. In Endgame, Loki died, but thanks to the film’s time travel storyline, he is now alive and in possession of the Tesseract which he used to escape before being thrown in Asgardian prison. The show follows THAT Loki and his interactions with the Time Variance Authority (TVA) – an organization that polices time.

Michael Waldron, head writer on the show, created his own rules, which expand on the time travel ideas that Marvel has already set in place. He spoke to Collider as he tried to explain the organization (in the least confusing way possible) and what fans can expect to see on the show.
