Loki TV series confirmed by Disney boss UPDATED: Tom Hiddleston confirms he’s starring!

November 9th, 2018 by Marc Comments

Well, we heard a few weeks ago that Loki – played by Tom Hiddleston – was likely to get his own TV Series when Disney’s streaming service, now officially monikered Disney +, lands (here) and last night it was officially announced.

During Disney’s quarterly earnings call, CEO Bob Iger confirmed that a live-action television series centred around Loki is in development at Disney+.

We’d imagine this means the Scarlet Witch series (as linked above too) will also be coming. We heard recently that that series plans on having Vision as a big part of it too, so we expect to hear official news on that soon.

But for now… Loki!

We know nothing about the setting of the series… will it be Hiddleston? Will it be a young Loki? Did he survive Infinity War? All yet to be revealed.

That said, fans won’t be happy if Hiddleston doesn’t return. Or maybe that’s just us?

Anyway, that’s all we have. What do you all think? Let us know…

UPDATED…

We think it’s fair to say Hiddleston is coming back:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
