Comic-Con: Marvel Studios’ Loki Series to debut Spring 2021
At the Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con it was revealed that the Disney+ series that focuses on Tom Hiddleston’s Loki will follow the God of Mischief who escaped in Avengers: Endgame! The series will debut in Spring 2021.
Disney is developing multiple limited series featuring characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Loki and WandaVision being two of the shows in development. Both Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen are expected to reprise their roles for their respective series. There are plans for other limited series that will feature other Marvel heroes who haven’t gotten their own movies.
Marvel Studios will oversee the new limited series, with each only consisting of six to eight episodes, with Feige taking a hands-on role in their development.
So far very few of the Marvel TV series have featured characters from the films, despite the shared MCU landscape. Marvel TV and Marvel Studios have operated as separate entities, with shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and the rest often referring to events in the films while the movies ignore the characters who originated on the small screen.
