There was so much stuff that came out of Hall H’s Marvel panel yesterday that we still have a couple of posts to do on it. First up, we’ve got the Loki series for Disney+. Despite being one of the first-named series for the streaming network, Loki won’t be coming out until Spring of 2021, after both Wandavision and The Falcon and Winter Soldier. We also now have confirmation from Tom Hiddleston as to which version of the character we’ll be getting. Here’s what he told attendees in Hall H.
“You guys saw Avengers, right? He’s still that guy. And just about the last thing that happened to him was that he got Hulk-smashed, so there’s a lot of psychological evolution that hasn’t happened yet, but Kevin has generously showed me what his plans are — I can’t tell you any of them — but its is one of the most exciting creative opportunities I think I’ve ever come across.”
That means the Loki we are getting hasn’t gone through the emotional growth that the one who teamed up with Thor in Ragnarok or who died defending his brother at the hands of Thanos. We are getting the mercurial, God of mischief in all of his glory!
