Marvel Confirms There Is Going to Be a Loki TV Series Starring Tom Hiddleston

Update 11/08/18: Disney and Marvel have now confirmed that Marvel Studios is developing a series based on fan-favorite character Loki. It will star Tom Hiddleston and be available on Disney+, the company's new streaming service.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe might be expanding again. Yes, that means there's more MCU material for you to watch, but this time it is actually a good -- potentially great -- thing. According to Variety, Marvel's parent company Disney is planning to add a number of limited series that focus on your favorite MCU characters who haven't gotten their own standalone films to its new streaming service.

Marvel naturally didn't confirm the news -- Marvel doesn't answer to anybody and does whatever Marvel wants -- but Variety reports that each series would be about six to eight episodes (not 13 like the Netflix Marvel shows. Please don't make them 13!) and feature deeper dives into the adventures of characters without solo films. The most exciting part is that the actors who played those parts in the MCU movies are expected to return for the limited series. That's a huge coup and raises the price of each of these potential limited series quite a bit, so Marvel likely wouldn't confirm anything until it had locked contracts from the potential stars anyway.

Variety specifically named Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston) as potential centers for the new series, which means that someone somewhere might have heard our desperate pleas to see Hiddleston back in action after Loki was killed by Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Avengers: Infinity War (it remains to be seen if that death stuck, but we're pretty sure it did). MCU overlord Kevin Feige is also reportedly very involved with the projects, which still don't have writers or directors attached as they are still in early development.

The Disney streaming service is expected to launch in 2019.

Really? mmmm.. interesting.. He would turn into a sort of anti-hero? He's not a good guy. Would it be a bunch of scenarios and storylines where he's kinda forced to do go things. I don't know. But hey, I will give it a try.

I was bummed to find out that another Defenders season is now unlikely to happen. So, maybe this will help ease the pain.
