At the moment, Loki and Doctor Strange 2 writer Michael Waldron is celebrating the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness this weekend, but he is also busy keeping an eye on the second season of Loki season. Waldron also created the Disney+ series Loki, being the head writer of season 1 of the project and now, the writer has provided some fresh updates on some changes behind-the-scenes for the second season.
The fact that Loki has become the first Marvel series on Disney+ to get renewed for a second season came as a surprise to almost everyone, including the crew, cast, and fans.
Loki Is The First Marvel TV Show To Get Renewed For Another Season
Earlier, all the Marvel shows slated to premiere on Disney+ were initially billed as limited series. Out of the five live-action series that have premiered so far – Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye, Loki, and Moon Knight – Loki is the only show to receive a confirmed second season.
This has also caused many MCU fans to speculate how, among other things, Loki will feed into the Doctor Strange sequel, and how that film might also influence season 2 of Loki. While talking to Digital Spy, Waldron revealed; “Well, I mean, look, everything leads into everything, right? We’ve hired a couple of great directors. [Justin] Benson and [Aaron] Moorhead are brilliant.” Moorhead and Benson also directed a couple of episodes of Moon Knight.
Waldron added, “And Eric Martin has taken over as head writer for season two. So the creative team is fantastic. As Tom [Hiddleston, who plays Loki] once said, there’s plenty more mischief to come.”
MCU Is Full Of Multiverses Now!
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is now brimming with various variants, timelines, and multiverses, which is a little confusing for many fans. However, it seems reassuring to see that Waldron is on top of it, else, too many cooks might have been involved. “We worked pretty hard on Loki to make it as airtight as possible. But there were times when I was like, ‘Oh, shit, I wish I hadn’t have defined that so clearly. I don’t know why I had to be so specific in my time-travel television show about the rules of the multiverse’,” he said.
“But, I was glad that I came in with institutional knowledge of the multiverse and was able to get the creative team of Doctor Strange on the same page as me on everything. Because like with Loki, that’s the most important thing when you’re dealing with this. You have to all have a shared language of all this stuff, otherwise, it can get pretty confusing.”
