Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s role in Marvel Studios’ Loki might be a direct link to Kang the Conqueror.
June 11th cannot arrive soon enough. Loki, one of the most anticipated Disney+ series, will premiere during the peak of this year’s summer. Since the announcement of her casting, fans have come up with numerous speculations on who Gugu Mbatha-Raw will be playing. The newest trailer for Loki has, finally, given us an answer.
Marvel Studios’ Loki Official Trailer
With just over two months to go, Marvel dropped a brand new Loki trailer for the upcoming series today. If you haven’t seen the latest footage yet, we’ve got you covered!
Gugu Mbatha-Raw is Judge Ravona Renslayer
The 37 year-old British actress is the head of the Time Variance Authority, known as Judge Renslayer. If you’re scratching your head thinking “Hey…I’ve seen Renslayer somewhere in the Marvel Comics…”, that’s because you have. It all seems to indicate that she is Ravona Renslayer, aka Terminatrix.
Ravona is a lover/ally/enemy of Kang The Conqueror from the comics. The time-traveling ruler of Chronopolis will see her lover debut in the upcoming Ant-Man movie, with Lovecraft Country’s Jonathan Majors taking on the Kang role. Could it be that her presence here means that this series will tie into Quantumania?
