Causing Mischief Anew
The Loki TV show has its showrunner according to our friends at The Hollywood Reporter. Here’s a few details…
Marvel’s god of mischief has a showrunner.
Loki, one of the first series that Marvel Studios will be making for Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, has landed Michael Waldron as its point person. Waldron will write the pilot, act as show creator and exec produce the series.
Tom Hiddleston is expected to star in the series, reprising the fan-favorite character he first played in 2011’s Thor.
The character apparently met his demise in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War,even before the census-altering dematerialization of half the universe, but Marvel may have found a run around that little impediment.
Sources say the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shape-shifter pops up throughout human history as an unlikely influencer on historical events.
Marvel had no comment.
Marvel is working on several series that will debut on Disney+. Other known series are The Vision and Scarlet Witch, being run by Captain Marvel writer Jac Schaeffer, while another will focus on a team-up of Falcon and Winter Soldier, the heroes played by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, respectively. Malcolm Spellman (Empire) has been hired to write the latter effort.
