New Loki Video Puts the Spotlight on Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Renslayer
Earlier this week, the first episode of Loki introduced Gugu Mbatha-Raw into the MCU as Judge Ravonna Renslayer. In this incarnation, Ravonna is a high-ranking member of the Time Variance Authority. However, in Marvel’s comic book universe, Ravonna is intricately linked to Kang the Conqueror as both his enemy and his lover.
Regardless of whether Ravonna will encounter Jonathan Majors’ Kang in the MCU, Judge Renslayer will play a major role in Loki. That’s why the latest Loki featurette from Disney+ puts the spotlight on Mbatha-Raw and her character.
“She’s powerful, she’s well-respected,” said Mbatha-Raw in the video. She also added “there’s a lot of betrayal and mischief. It’s really wonderful. I’m excited to watch the show myself!”
The video also lightly touches upon Ravonna’s relationship with Owen Wilson’s Agent Mobius M. Mobius. Ravonna is Mobius’ boss, and yet they seem to have a more informal back-and-forth banter that’s closer to friendship than anything else. However, she’s less than fond of Loki himself.
Loki episode 1 is streaming on Disney+ now. The second episode will premiere on Wednesday, June 16.
