Marvel Studios is developing a lot of Disney+ shows that are incorporated in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although most of them are designed as mini-series, two of them will surely get a second season — the animated series What If…? and Loki, in which Tom Hiddleston plays the role he’s been playing since 2011’s Thor, the movie in which he debuted as Loki, the God of Mischief.
Michael Waldron, a screenwriter who worked on the first season of Loki, and also wrote a screenplay for the upcoming movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, is set to return for the second season of Loki. And as he’s slowly establishing himself as one of the franchise’s veterans, he recently spoke about the upcoming season. Of course, he didn’t reveal something solid about the season itself, but he gave a few teases, and we’ll be satisfied with that for now because the season’s premiere is still far far away.
“Well, I mean, look, what Kate did with Kasra Farahani our production designer, Christine Wada, our costume designer. And the whole crew and establishing the look of the show, I mean, what can you say other than it’s just like, it is utterly spectacular. It doesn’t look like TV. It couldn’t have looked more premium. So what they did was amazing. […] Benson and Morehead, I know those guys. They’re great. They’re brilliant in their own right. You know, I think they’re going to come in and they’re going to do what everybody on this project does, which is to elevate, you know? Then they’ll take what was great about it and fit it with their own awesome instincts and everything and hopefully will make something even better.” — Michael Waldron for The Playlist
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, written by Waldron and directed by Sam Raimi will land in theaters on May 6. Loki Season 2 is expected to begin production this year, but when it’s going to premiere, it’s anyone’s guess.
