Loki Creator Says Disney+ Series Will Deal With Identity Struggles

While speaking on the Forever Dogs Podcast, Loki creator Michael Waldron shared that the upcoming Disney+ series, featuring Tom Hiddleston reprising his iconic MCU role, will deal with the Trickster’s identity struggles.

“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.”

Loki will feature the return of Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston as the fan-favorite mischievous titular villain. Hiddleston last portrayed the God of Mischief in last year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, where he successfully had stolen the Tesseract during Iron Man and Ant Man’s failed attempt to retrieve it. Joining Hiddleston are MCU newcomers Sophia Di Martino (YesterdayFlowersInto the Badlands), Oscar nominee Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero) with Di Martino rumored to play Lady Loki.

Kevin Feige previously shared that the Loki series along with Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany’s WandaVision will tie into Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, he didn’t confirm whether or not Hiddleston will also be making an appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel.

Rick and Morty veteran Michael Waldron is writing Loki, which also recently recruited Kate Herron as a director. Hiddleston has previously teased that fans will see his character use the Tesseract to cause more trouble. According to rumors, viewers will follow Loki as he travels through time and leaves his mark on various historical events. Plus, the series will reportedly have wide-ranging effects on the larger MCU.

Loki will premiere on Disney+ in spring 2021.
