Tom Hiddleston Looking Forward To Exploring Loki
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.
