Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant star in Loki. Kate Herron directs with Michael Waldron serving as head writer. Loki takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and sees Loki run afoul of the Time Variance Authority, a mysterious and powerful organization that monitors timelines across the multiverse.
