The announcements came fast and furious at the recent Disney Investors Day. When the smoke cleared, Marvel Studios was the topic of talk around most of the nation’s water coolers.
Loki, one of the most highly anticipated MCU series to be announced by Disney+, has officially been given a slated premiere of May 2021. Ever since the introduction of Thor’s trickster brother in 2011 in the movie of the same name, Tom Hiddleston has made the character one of the most beloved in the whole MCU.
The character of Loki has appeared in six movies within the Thor and Avengers franchise. When first introduced, Loki was the villain. However, as the franchise grew, he moved into the role of an antihero. During his final appearance in Avengers: Infinity War, fans watched as Loki assumed the role of hero, and as such, saved the life of his brother Thor, dying at the hands of Thanos.
But as is his nature, Loki always finds a way to beat the odds and beat them he did. With the time-traveling element presented in Avengers: Endgame, a loophole, as it were, was made available, and after getting his hands on the Tesseract, Loki evaded capture—and as it seems, possibly even death.
Returning in the titular role of Loki, Tom Hiddleston will be joined by fellow cast members Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Sophia DiMartino.
As with many film productions in progress in 2020, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic threw a monkey wrench into everything. However, it was announced that the Loki production is expected to finish final production sometime later this month, with no further problems anticipated.
As the plot for the series is being kept under tight wraps, fans are anxious to see if there is any plan to reunite Loki with his brother Thor and the rest of the MCU.
