Marvel's Loki Series Taps Rick & Morty Writer as Showrunner

Marvel's upcoming Loki series for the Disney+ streaming service has found a showrunner in Rick and Morty Season 4 writer and producer Michael Waldron.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Waldron will serve as executive producer, write the pilot and act as series creator. Further, the series will reportedly focus on the titular trickster god as he shows up at various points in humanity's history, possibly influencing certain events during his visits to Midgard. This indicates that the series may have a more humorous tone to its narrative and may serve as a prequel to the first Thor movie. Whether or not Hiddleston will physically reprise the role or simply act as the narrator for the series has not yet been confirmed.

Written and produced by Michael Waldron, the Loki TV series currently has no announced release date for Disney+, which launches in September.
