All hail God of Mischief for he is returning with his tricks in Disney+’s show, Loki. Marvel Studios confirmed that a standalone feature on the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe character is in the making. Kevin Feige took to the San Diego Comic-Con’s Marvel panel to announce that Tom Hiddleston will be returning as Loki for the series. His return was teased in Avengers: Endgame. The character was seen slipping into an alternate dimension when the Avengers travel back into time to collect the infinity stones.
Ever since the announcement, fans have been jumping with joy to see Loki make a return with more mischief up his sleeve. Turns out, Hiddleston is as excited as the fans to return in the MCU show. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the actor confessed that he is looking forward to donning those horns yet again. While the actor did not reveal details about Loki’s journey after he ran from New York, he did say it was going to be something fans have never seen before.
“It’s very, very exciting because in many ways it’s the character you know, but in a context you’ve never seen him in before. And if I say any more, I’m gonna say too much. So that’s what’s so thrilling — there’s so much to explore that I haven’t yet explored. That’s very exciting,” he said. The actor went on to confirm that the work on the show will begin at the start of 2020. The show eyes a debut on the online platform by the Spring 2021. The new show will not feature the recent version of Loki. Instead, we will be travelling be back to square one, when Loki was heartless and vicious. After all, it was the Loki from The Avengers that escaped.
“Just about the last thing that happened to him was he got Hulk-smashed. So there’s a lot of psychological evolution that is still yet to happen. [Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige] has generally 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. This is new territory, a new world, new challenges, and I cannot wait to get started,” Hiddleston said at SDCC a few weeks ago.
