One of the more popular supervillain characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been none other than actor Tom Hiddleston’s character Loki. While fans were ecstatic to see the character brought back to the franchise with a 2012 version of the character that was introduced in Avengers: Endgame, they’ve been even more ecstatic ever since it was announced that Loki would be getting his very own original series. The series is set to premiere on Disney’s streaming service Disney Plus, and pre-production on the upcoming Loki show is already underway.
While it’s currently unknown who the majority of people working on the Loki series will be, we do know Tom Hiddleston will be returning for the title role. It’s also been confirmed that the series’ core director will be Kate Herron, with Ant-Man and the Wasp associate producer Kevin Wright attached to the Loki series as a supervising producer. Now you can see star Tom Hiddleston down below in a Loki pre production photo alongside the creative team that will be bringing the Loki series to life.

While not much is known about the series, it has been confirmed that it will follow the Loki character as he travels through time and ends up through a variety of major historical events. It’ll be interesting to see which ones he’ll end up in and in which ways they’ll connect to the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, Marvel Studios’ own Kevin Feige has confirmed that the series will help lead into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. So it’s certainly exciting getting to see this Loki pre production photo.
The series is currently only one in a variety of different Marvel shows being produced for Disney Plus, as it’s also been confirmed that the different shows will now be playing major parts within the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe from this point going forward.
The Loki series is expected to premiere on Disney Plus in early 2021.
