With several live-action Marvel shows in development for Disney’s upcoming Disney+ streaming service, now comes an update on the hotly anticipated Loki series.
Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel Studios has brought in Michael Waldron to serve as showrunner on what is seemingly just titled Loki. Waldron is best known for working on the likes of Rick and Morty and Community, and he’ll now get to work on writing the script for the Loki pilot.
Having become a hugely popular part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tom Hiddleston reprising his Loki role for the show. The early word on the miniseries has it pegged as portraying Loki as a slightly more mischievous Doctor Who sort of character. Location-wise, it’s believed that Loki will be largely set on Midgard, as in Earth, with the scope to possibly explore other realms.
Elsewhere, there are double-act shows for Vision and Scarlet Witch, and Falcon and Winter Soldier also in development for Disney+.
As ever, expect more on all of these shows as they continue to develop.
