The six-episode Loki TV series for Disney+ is getting closer to its planned spring 2020 debut and at the Television Critics Association event today, Marvel talked about the show and revealed that it’s set for a June 11th, 2021 premiere. This means we’re going to be seeing more advertising for it in the next couple of months, especially with WandaVision done and as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier at the halfway mark
The latest piece of the puzzle to arrive is the second formal trailer for it that expands on the first in all the right ways to signal that this is going to be one wild and crazy ride that I can’t wait to get on board for.
Tom Hiddleston is coming back to reprise his role, showing where the character went after Avengers: Endgame, and that it was being directed by Kate Herron with Michael Waldron writing and serving as the showrunner for it.
Head writer and executive producer on the series, Michael Waldron, recently signed onto an overall deal with Disney as they liked what he did there and his screenplay for the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel that’s now filming. It was revealed earlier today that he’s going to write the screenplay for the Kevin Feige-produced Star Wars standalone film as well.
With scripts by Michael Waldron, the Loki TV series is directed by Kate Herron with a cast that includes Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Sasha Lane, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant.
Plot Concept: Loki is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority organization after stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), and travels through time altering human history using it, ending up trapped in his own crime thriller
