One of the first projects announced for Disney+ was a Marvel series featuring “Loki” and while filming on the series had been delayed due to the Coronavirus, the show is due to arrive on Disney+ in May.
Tom Hiddleston is returning to the show as “Loki” and it takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” “Loki” also stars Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant. Kate Herron is directing the show.
Michael Waldron is the showrunner, head writer, and executive producer for the “Loki” series. He is also writing the upcoming Marvel movie, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.
Deadline is reporting that Michael Waldron is going to be writing a Star Wars movie that will be produced by Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer President, Kevin Feige.
As part of Michael’s new overall deal with Disney, Deadline is reporting that he will return for the second season of “Loki”. Though Disney hasn’t yet confirmed if there will be a second season of “Loki”.
It’s not uncommon for Disney to renew shows for more seasons before they air, especially after they’ve seen early unfinished episodes and get a feel for how the show is going to work.
The new “Loki” series will see him join the Time Variance Authority, which will be further explorer in “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” film.
