Michael Waldron has been quite busy as he’s promoting his latest Marvel project, the upcoming release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He made quite the splash after working on the first season of Loki that he was swiftly attached to write up the script for the film. In an interview with The Playlist, he shared his thoughts on the new directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who is taking over for Kate Herron, who gave us the iconic first season.
Benson and Moorhead, I know those guys. They’re great. They’re brilliant in their own right. You know, I think they’re going to come in and they’re going to do what everybody on this project does, which is to elevate, you know? Then they’ll take what was great about it and fit it with their own awesome instincts and everything and hopefully will make something even betterMichael Waldron
The directing duo left an impression with Marvel Studios after their work on Moon Knight, and they have teased that they are excited to bring their experience from that series to this new project. It’s also the first project of Marvel Studios to get a second season, which creates an interesting scenario on how exactly it might fit as a sequel to the first series from 2021 and fit into the ever-growing MCU.
Waldron being excited certainly adds to what the future may have in store for us, especially with the cliffhanger from the first season teasing the arrival of Kang the Conqueror. It’ll likely closely connect to the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp threequel. So, we’ll see if we might see some familiar faces pop up.
