By giving a standalone series for Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Marvel made the fans happy who wanted to see more of the God of Mischief. The series will be streaming on Disney+ next year. However, fans are curious to know how the makers will shape his story post the events in Avengers: Endgame.
Well, Loki showrunner Michael Waldron shared important and interesting details about Tom’s character. Michael said that the God of Mischief will be struggling with control and his identity post everything that happened in Endgame.
On Forever Dogs Podcast, Michael said, “I think it’s the struggle with identity, who you are, who you want to be. I’m really drawn to characters who are fighting for control. Certainly, you see that with Loki over the first ten years of movies, he’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life, he was adopted and everything and that manifests itself through anger and spite towards his family.”
In Avengers: Endgame (2019), when Captain America (played by Chris Evans), Iron Man (played by Robert Downey Jr) and Ant-Man (played by Paul Rudd) went back in time (2012) to seek the tesseract, the Loki from that timeline escaped with it. The present Loki was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.
So the Disney+ series will be telling us the story of 2012 Loki who disappeared with the tessaract. So he’s still the bad guy and has no idea that in future, he changed as a person. With this revelation, Michael Waldron has raised our expectations now!
