Marvel Studios has officially announced that the Loki series is happening. Kevin Feige took over Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con to deliver a wealth of Marvel Cinematic Universe news. Tom Hiddleston is returning as the Loki who escaped from the past in Avengers: Endgame. And Marvel fans are going to be super excited. Story details are currently under wraps, but the show will premiere on the Disney+ Streaming platform in spring 2021.
While the Loki show has been announced and we have the logo, release timing, and time frame, not much else is known about the Disney+ streaming series after it was officially announced at SDCC. It is believed that Tom Hiddleston's God of Mischief will be taking part in events in world history. Some previously released concept art showed Loki amongst some old cars in front of a movie theater that was advertising Jaws. The iconic movie came out in 1975, which is also the year that the Vietnam war came to a close, so it's possible Loki could have had a hand in ending the war. The idea seems a little far-fetched, but if anyone could put an end to the Vietnam war, it's Loki.
With that being said, a historical show featuring Loki sounds pretty intriguing. There's so many places in the world he could show up and either mess things up, or help them along. Tom Hiddleston has been virtually silent in regard to the show, so maybe he will open up a bit more now that the cat is officially out of the bag. Marvel Studios are the king of keeping secrets, so don't expect to learn too much about the upcoming Loki series except for what Kevin Feige and crew want us to know. With a release date set for 2021, it will probably be a while before we get any updates.
Thor 4, aka Thor: Love and Thunder, is getting ready to start production too, and many MCU fans are probably wondering if Loki will show up in the highly anticipated sequel through the use of time travel. Tom Hiddleston was not announced as a part of the cast, but one can easily see him sneaking in for at least a cameo, possibly even helping to set up the Disney+ streaming series. Marvel Studios is in a position to really do anything with the character after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Marvel Studios absolutely destroyed this year's San Diego Comic-Con with an amazing amount of announcements. Soon, they will be taking on even more of the TV side of things when the Disney+ streaming platform gets off of the ground this fall. Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios are heading in crazy direction where they can tell any kind of story that they want with as much time as they need, making it as true to the comic books as possible. The Disney+ shows could go on to be the preferred way to experience MCU stories in the future. We'll just have to wait and see. The Loki Disney+ series news was first announced by the Marvel Studios Twitter account.
