Sophia Di Martino is preparing to join Tom Hiddleston in the upcoming Loki Disney+ series. It is not clear who she will be playing at this time. It is believed that production on the Marvel series will begin early next year, which means we should be getting some additional casting news very soon. Di Martino previously starred in the sleeper hit of the summer, Yesterday, which took place in a world where influential rock band The Beatles never existed.
Not a whole lot of information about the Loki series is available at this time, which is the norm with Marvel Studios and their secretive methods. With that being said, it is believed that the show will be a time traveling adventure with The God of Mischief popping up in different eras of human history and influencing historic events in some way. Concept art for the series featured Tom Hiddleston's Loki on the streets in front of a movie theater that was playing Jaws alongside some cars from the 1970s.
Marvel Studios has yet to officially confirm what the show is about, but seeing Loki go through human history and possibly sway events sounds like a pretty inventive idea. Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are just happy to know that they'll be able to see more of Tom Hiddleston as the fan-favorite character after seeing his demise at the beginning of Infinity War. Thankfully, we know that there is a version of the character that is alive and well, thanks to Avengers: Endgame, though this is not the evolved character that started in Thor: Ragnarok, this is truly The God of Mischief again.
In addition to Yesterday, Sophia Di Martino has also been in other projects for both the big and small screen, including Silent Witness, Flowers, and Into the Badlands. The Loki series is all set to be helmed by Sex Education and Daybreak director Kate Herron. Rick & Morty writer Michael Waldron penned the pilot and "will act as show creator and exec produce the series." Out of the new Marvel shows on the way, the Loki series is one that MCU fans are really looking forward too, especially now that Disney+ is up and fully operational.
Loki does not have an official premiere date at this time, but it will show up in spring 2021 on Disney+. In addition to The God of Mischief series, Marvel is also currently working on the WandaVision series and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier series, both of which are currently in production. There are a ton of other shows on the horizon that will expand the MCU into something even bigger than it already is, which is pretty crazy to think about. One has to wonder if Kevin Feige even sleeps. Variety was the first to announce the latest Loki casting.
