Last April, Disney held an “Investor Day” meeting at which, among other things, the increasingly massive media company officially teased its upcoming streaming service for the first time. Dubbed “Disney+,” the Netflix competitor will include the conglomerate’s huge catalog of movies and television shows, as well as a new array of original content. This includes several confirmed Marvel properties, like Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki.
Aside from the occasional stray comments, however, very little is known (for sure) about these upcoming Marvel streaming shows. This is especially true of Loki, though since Avengers: Endgame, audiences and critics have begun speculating about where, how and why the new series might happen. Now, thanks to some official images from the Investor Day event that Disney just released, we know what the program’s official logo looks like — as well as one important plot detail.
As noted by Comic Book, the logo’s design “is somewhat reminiscent of the typeface from the Journey Into Mystery series by Kieron Gillen that featured Kid Loki as the protagonist.” This isn’t too surprising, as Marvel has often made use of actual title designs from the comics for its film adaptations. What is surprising, however, is the concept art depicted behind Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
It shows Loki (Tom Hiddleston) walking in front of a theater marquee with the word “JAWS” displayed prominently — as in Steven Spielberg’s classic film Jaws, which premiered in 1975. So it looks like the Tesseract-stealing, portal-jumping version of Loki seen in one of many Endgame‘s newly-created alternate timelines will be doing a little bit of time-traveling.
Aside from this briefest of first looks, however, we still don’t know when Loki is set to premiere on Disney+. Many reports indicate that the God of Mischief will head to the small screen sometime next year.
