Longtime Marvel Cinematic Universe star Tom Hiddleston has revealed more details about the upcoming Loki miniseries for Disney+.
In an extensive interview with MTV News, Hiddleston revealed that the miniseries will be six episodes, each lasting approximately an hour. While looking back in his time portraying the character, Hiddleston noted that he assumed he would be done playing Loki after 2013's Thor: The Dark World while hinting that the God of Mischief would be facing his greatest foes yet.
"I feel like I know him, I’ve been playing him for 10 years now, and that’s crazy to me. By the time it’s out, I’ll be 40. When I was cast I was 29, which is a great chunk of my life," Hiddleston reflected. "Playing him, and playing him truthfully, but presenting him with new challenges which then have to change him in different ways is the most exciting aspect of it. You have his specific gifts, his intelligence, his treachery, his mischief, his magic, and then seeing him come up against more formidable opponents the like of which he has never seen or known."
Considering a version of Loki met his untimely end being strangled by Thanos, the suggestion that the Prince of Asgard would face greater opponents is a strong claim. The miniseries will follow the alternate timeline Loki who escaped with the Tesseract to parts unknown during the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, is set to hit Disney+ sometime in Spring 2021. Rick & Morty writer Michael Waldron has been set as the showrunner for the series.
