Loki showrunner, Michael Waldron, shared some interesting details on their newest Disney+ series. He goes on to say that Loki will deal with identity struggles throughout the series.
When it comes to Loki’s identity, he starts off as the villain of the universe and slowly becomes some-what of a hero. Maybe these are the identity problems he will deal with; because he is the God of Mischief after all.
“I think it’s the struggle with identity. Who you are, who you want to be,” Waldron said (via Joblo). “I’m really drawn to characters who are fighting for control. Certainly, you see that with Loki over the first 10 years of movies. He’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life. He was adopted and everything and that manifests itself through anger and spite towards his family.”
The series will be apart of the first wave of Marvel shows coming to Disney+. During the Super Bowl, we got a brief teaser or tent shows, which you can find here. It will appear next to The Falcon and the Winter Solider and Wandavision which have all been confirmed for this year; however, Loki will premiere in early 2021.
Disney+’s Loki sees the return of Tom Hiddleston as the title character, also set to star are Sophie Di Martino, Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beauty and the Beast), all in unknown roles. Kate Herron (Daybreak) will direct the series. Michael Waldron (Rick & Morty) wrote the series.
