What to Expect from the Future of The MCU and When to Expect It
TBD 2021: LOKI
To the delight of Loki Stans everywhere, Tom Hiddleston will return to the MCU to lead his own series on Disney +. Of course this Loki isn’t the one we’ve gotten to know over the past decade because that Loki had is neck snapped by the Mad Titan and remains, for now and forever, deceased. Instead, we will follow the Loki of a new timeline that was created when the Avengers returned to 2012 to snag up some Infinity Stones and, in process, set the table for Loki to escape. Said to feature some time travel shenanigans that will see the God of Mischief visit some significant historical time periods and, perhaps, spin some webs that even further complicate and already catastrophic timeline.
Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Owen Wilson will join Hiddleston in lead roles in the series.
Production on Loki began in February of 2020 and went on hiatus in March as Marvel Studios stopped all production in response to the spreading coronavirus. Kate Herron (Sex Education) will direct the series, working off scripts from a writer’s room led by show runner Michael Waldron (Rick and Morty). The series is currently scheduled to appear in early 2021 and will reportedly tie into Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness.
In Marvel Studios’ “Loki,” the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” Kate Herron directs and Michael Waldron is head writer. Debuts on Disney+ next year—2021.
