While promoting his Broadway debut in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, actor Tom Hiddleston, spoke with Entertainment Weekly and was asked about the upcoming Loki series for Disney+.
You’re also doing the Loki series for Disney+. When do things begin on that front?
Loki will start at the top of next year. He’s such a classical character. [Thor and Loki], they’re from Norse myths — they have a kind of gravitas to them. Robert in Betrayal is much more earthbound. They’re both very complex, but Robert is a publisher and a husband and a father. Loki is the god of mischief. [Laughs] Two quite different figures.
He also told them:
“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.”
The new Loki series will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, when Loki grabbed the Space Stone and escaped.
Loki will be coming to Disney+ in spring 2021.
