Loki season 2 trailer teases darker storyline, with Loki pulled (painfully) through time

"I've been pulled through time, between the past and the present. If what I saw was true, there's nothing that stands between this world and utter destruction," Loki says quite ominously, in a voiceover in the first official trailer for Loki season 2.

It wasn't like Loki season one was the funniest of comedies, but it did have an undercurrent of silly humor, as the grand villain Loki found himself in a bureaucratic world where he was robbed of the power and impact lorded over others. But Loki season 2 definitely seems to be taking a darker turn - if, that is, the newly released trailer is to be believed.

While Loki (Tom Hiddleston) is no longer a fish out of water at the TVA, he and Morbius (Owen Wilson) both seem quite lost as to what exactly is happening to Loki ("timeslipping" says Ke Huy Quan's new character), as Loki is pulled painfully through time. The stakes do seem quite a bit higher, however. Last season saw Loki fighting for his own fate, but now we see Loki and Mobius and Sylvie fighting for the fate of time itself.

Yes, it looks like the consequences of Loki and Sylvie's run-in with He Who Remains at the end of Loki season 1 does actually end up with the disastrous consequences that He Who Remains had promised. As for what is actually going to happen to the universe, and whether or not Team Loki will actually be able to stop it - well, we'll simply have to see what happens in the show itself.
