Avengers: Endgame set up the Loki series by creating a branching timeline in which he escaped after the Battle of New York. During the Marvel Studios Super Bowl commercial, Loki was apparently imprisoned by the Time Variance Authority. Within the Marvel comic book universe, the TVA polices the multiverse and alternate timelines. Loki also promised to burn the TVA to the ground in that clip, despite being their captive. It’s unknown if Mbatha-Raw’s character works for the TVA or if she’s an ally of Loki.
