Disney+’s Loki officially resumes production in Atlanta
Following the confirmation that Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has resumed its filming with newly released set photos and videos, it looks like another highly-anticipated MCU series has also made a return to its Atlanta set. In a recent interview with Forbes, Gugu Mbatha-Raw revealed a new production update about Loki by confirming that they’ve already restarted filming on the Tom Hiddleston-led Disney+ series.
“I’m obviously sworn to secrecy about everything to do with Loki, but it feels great to be back,” Mbatha-Raw said. “Everyone is trying to do it as safely as possible under the circumstances, and it feels good. I’m excited. It’s a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see it.”
Loki will feature the return of Golden Globe winner Tom Hiddleston as the fan-favorite mischievous titular villain. Hiddleston last portrayed the God of Mischief in last year’s highest-grossing film of all time Avengers: Endgame, where he successfully had stolen the Tesseract during Iron Man and Ant Man’s failed attempt to retrieve it. Joining Hiddleston are MCU newcomers Sophia Di Martino (Yesterday, Flowers, Into the Badlands), Oscar nominee Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror: San Junipero), Cailey Fleming (The Walking Dead), and Richard E. Grant (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) with Di Martino rumored to play Lady Loki.
Kevin Feige previously shared that the Loki series along with Elizabeth Olson and Paul Bettany’s WandaVision will tie into Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, he didn’t confirm whether or not Hiddleston will also be making an appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel.
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.
Loki is expected to premiere on Disney+ in spring 2021.
