Following the huge success of Marvel’s Loki, fans have been eagerly anticipating the show’s next installment. In a recent discussion with ET, the show’s creator Michael Waldron and actor Tom Hiddleston revealed what fans may anticipate from the new season of the popular drama, adding gasoline to the fire.
Hiddleston said during the interview: “We’ll begin immediately. I’ll be out of here almost immediately. “We’ll definitely go in the summer,” he said.” The actor expressed his excitement to return to the God of Mischief grind, saying that he was “excited to get the band back together,” referring to his co-stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Ravonna Renslayer) and Owen Wilson (Mobius M. Mobius), who have both been confirmed to return to the set of the series for a second season.
Meanwhile, Waldron previewed what fans may look forward to in the coming season “It’s simply a continuation of the character’s evolution, without being too detailed. That’s what Tom and I both valued.” “If we’re going to continue [the first season plot] in a second season,” he explained, “we have to cover new emotional territory,” adding, “And the excellent news is that that character keeps exposing new layers of texture and complexity.”
Waldron said that “everything that transpired in this movie there’s definitely some branches running all over the place” with regards to how the events of Doctor Strange 2 may effect the season.
Tom Hiddleston discussed his Marvel villain Loki, the God of Mischief, coming out as bisexual in his titular series in a recent interview with The Guardian, as reported by ET Canada. The Disney Plus series premiered in 2021 and quickly captivated Marvel fans, who began rooting for the wicked figure and his eventual victory.
For those unfamiliar, Loki disclosed his sexuality in the most Loki manner conceivable during a scene with Sylvie, his multiversal persona played by Sophia Di Martino. “I hope Loki coming out as bisexual was meaningful to individuals who recognized it,” Hiddleston said in his interview with the publication. He went on to explain how important the moment was not just to the audience but also to the actors “It was only a first step, and there is still much more to be done. However, it was vital to everyone of us.”
Reacting to the scene in a tweet, director Kate Herron wrote, “From the moment I joined @LokiOfficial it was very important to me, and my goal, to acknowledge Loki was bisexual. It is a part of who he is and who I am too. I know this is a small step but I’m happy, and heart is so full,” as she attached snaps from the scene Loki comes out as being attracted to both men and women.
