It’s time for fans of the “god of mischief” to get really excited as production for the new Disney+ series Loki is reportedly set to begin production in only a few days.
Initial word was that filming would tentatively begin in February of this year, but now it appears that production will start on January 20 and is expected to take place at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as at various other locations until the middle of June.
The last time we saw Loki, he was escaping with the Tesseract in Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame. Tom Hiddleston returns to play his signature role as the god of mischief who will reportedly travel through space and time to attempt to influence the history of mankind. The storyline of the Loki series will take place after Loki’s escape.
Though details about the highly-anticipated new series are scarce at best, we do know that Hiddleston will be joined by Sophia Di Martino (Flowers, Yesterday, A Royal Night Out), but the exact role she will play has not yet been announced. When asked for more details about the new series in a recent interview with MTV News, Hiddleston didn’t offer too much, saying only “I wish I could tell you what happens, but I can’t.”
Sorry, Loki fans.
But Hiddleston did talk about how thankful he is at the chance to go even deeper with the character of Loki: “I know this character now; I feel that the audience knows him, and playing him truthfully but presenting him with new challenges . . . is the most exciting aspect of it.”
This could be Hiddleston’s finest moment yet.
The new series will be the third to spinoff from the Avengers film franchise, and once production begins on the Loki series, there will be a total of three Avengers-inspired series being filmed simultaneously as both Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision are currently in production as well.
