There are quite a few Marvel Studios series heading our way on Disney+ this year, but we’ve still haven’t had an update on the first one to receive a second season, Loki. It left us with quite the cliffhanger as we awaited what the future might have in store for the God of Mischief. It looks like we might have our first hint that the Tom Hiddleston-led Disney+ series will start production this year.
In a new piece by Backstage, they hint that production is eyeing a summer start at Pinewood Studio. Back in July, it was confirmed that Kate Herron was not returning to direct the series but there hasn’t been an update on who might’ve taken over since. After she left the project, there was some belief that it may not start production until 2023, but if it is indeed going to start production this year, they may have already found their director.
A summer production start might offer some hope that the series could find its way to Disney+ in 2023. Given that Kang the Conqueror might have a role in the series, they could be trying to connect it to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, where Jonathan Majors will technically make his first appearance as that specific variant. Here’s hoping we might also get some casting announcements in the coming months that offer a hint at what else we cane expect from Loki’s return to the TVA.
