We know little about Tom Hiddleston’s return because the God of Mischief in Loki subsequent 12 months, however creator and showrunner Michael Waldron has given us the primary hints of what to anticipate from the Disney+ sequence in a brand new interview. Waldron stated the six-episode miniseries will deal with Loki’s “struggle with identity”. Remember, this is not the Loki that died in Avengers: Infinity War, however the one who stole the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. He hasn’t had the character progress we have seen in Thor: The Dark World, and Thor: Ragnarok, so naturally, he is much more self-serving.
At the 29-minute mark within the newest episode of The Writers Panel with Ben Blacker podcast, Waldron said: “I think it’s the struggle with identity, who you are, who you want to be. And I’m really drawn to characters who are fighting for control. Certainly, you see that with Loki over the first 10 years of movies. He’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life, he was adopted and everything, and that manifests itself through anger and spite towards his family.”
As you possibly can inform, Waldron is doing his finest to avoid specifics. We’ve beforehand learnt that Loki’s multiverse-traversing adventures with the Tesseract will take him to the 1970s. Then on the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, the place Loki was formally confirmed, Hiddleston referred to as it “one of the most exciting creative opportunities I’ve come across” and stated there was “a lot of psychological evolution that has to happen” for his character. And we bought our first, very temporary look in February.
In addition to Hiddleston, Loki stars Sophia Di Martino (Flowers), Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror’s “San Junipero”), and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?).
Loki is slated to launch in spring 2021 on Disney+ Hotstar in India. It is perhaps delayed given manufacturing was suspended earlier in March as a result of ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
