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. Kevin Feige confirmed earlier this month that it will also tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Loki will premiere on Disney+ in spring 2021.
