While the exact release date hasn't been revealed yet, the show comes to Disney+ in the Spring of 2021
Your favorite shapeshifter is back with his very own show.
Tom Hiddleston is all set to reprise his most noteworthy character of Loki for the streaming service Disney+.
During the SDCC panel, Marvel revealed more about the upcoming Loki show and even confirmed that the bizarre disappearance of the character from 'Avengers: Endgame' was all a part of the plan.
"Didn't I see Loki die in Infinity War?" producer and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige asked during the panel. "You did, but what else did you see in Endgame? Where did Loki go? What happened to Loki? This series will answer that," he continued.
Initially 'Loki' was scheduled to air on Disney+ in the spring of 2021. However, the coronavirus pandemic has thrown all these plans out of the window and the show has been delayed from its original release. There are no updates as yet as to when production will resume on the show.
Marvel Studios head Fiege informed audiences at SDCC that 'Loki' will be picking up following the events of the 'Avengers: Endgame' where Loki snatched the Space Stone and vanished.
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Hiddleston is best known for playing Loki. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actor has appeared as Loki in 'Thor', 'The Avengers', 'Thor: The Dark World', 'Thor: Ragnarok', 'Avengers: Infinity War', and 'Avengers: Endgame'.
Apart from playing Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Hiddlestone is known for his roles in Steven Spielberg's 'War Horse', 'The Deep Blue Sea', 'Midnight in Paris', the BBC series 'Henry IV' and 'Henry V'. 'The Night Manager', a BBC/AMC limited series, won him his first Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Miniseries or Television Film. He also received two Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie and Outstanding Limited Series for the same project.
“You guys saw Avengers, right? He’s still that guy. And just about the last thing that happened to him was that he got Hulk-smashed, so there’s a lot of psychological evolution that hasn’t happened yet, but Kevin has generously shown me what his plans are — I can’t tell you any of them — but it is one of the most exciting creative opportunities I think I’ve ever come across," Hiddleston spoke about his character on the Disney+ series.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw is the most recent addition to the show, a Variety report confirmed her casting. Nothing more has been revealed about her role.
There is no trailer for the Disney+ show. MEA WorldWide will update this story once the trailer is out.
