Variety confirmed the story earlier this week, although specific details are still being kept under wraps. The only thing that has been confirmed so far is that the series will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, in addition to the short clip that aired during a Super Bowl ad spot last weekend which saw Loki, played brilliantly by Tom Hiddleston, saying the words "I'm gonna burn this place to the ground." Based off Marvel Studios' Phase 4 schedule (seen above), we still have a full year left before everything is fully unveiled. We can't wait to see what surprises pop up next!
