Disney and Marvel Studios will be launching some exciting new MCU spinoff series for the forthcoming Disney+ streaming service. One of the most anticipated shows is undoubtedly Loki TV series based on the fan-favourite MCU character, played by Tom Hiddleston.

At the time, the Loki TV series was announced, Hiddleston’s name was linked to the series. Fans were already excited to see more of Hiddleston’s Loki. Then, thanks to social media, the waters got dirty. Reports suggested that Hiddleston’s role in the series will be minimal. The actor will only appear as his version of Loki at certain points, or maybe just be the narrator. However, Disney Film Chief Alan Horn is putting those rumours to bed for good. He revealed that the Loki series will be all about Hiddleston.
Here’s what Horn said during an interview with THR:
“The quality of the idea and the piece itself will drive whether we can make it or not. Sean may have three or four a year that he can contribute, and Marvel has a few things — we’re doing [a series] with Tom Hiddleston playing the Loki character.”
So it’s safe to assume that we will see Tom Hiddleston as Loki soon, leaving us to one question: how will it fit into the larger MCU?
MCU Boss Kevin Feige Confirms Tom Hiddleston as Loki:
Recent rumours have suggested to Loki being there at various points in history. These are moments where Loki used his power to influence key decisions. That’s probably the only way Hiddleston’s involvement with the series and the rumours could both be true. The show may also feature Hiddleston as the narrator and main character for a lot of time. Here’s what MCU Boss Kevin Feige said about the character recently:
“Disney+ is, yes,” said Feige. “Which is another exciting avenue and another exciting thing about being at this place at this time and goes back to the amount of characters we have and the amount of stories we could tell… When we announced ten movies and people asked “Well what about these other things?’ the previous stance would be ‘We only have a certain number of slots to make movies per year.’ That’s still true but we have another outlet that I think will be very unique and very special.”
