How Disney gave new lives to Loki

Tom Hiddleston joined co-star Sophia Di Martino, series writer and executive producer Michael Waldron and director Kate Herron at a sold-out RTS event to share insights into their big-ticket Disney+ show Loki.

They discussed, among other things, the pressures of conjuring high-end TV for a streaming behemoth, pushing the envelope on content based on a character drawn from a blockbuster film franchise – and keeping legions of loyal fans happy.

Hiddleston left the sell out crowd at a panel discussion hosted by the Royal Television Society Wednesday evening (March 2) hungry for more details but the star of the Marvel show about the god of mischief and chaos, couldn't and wouldn't be drawn. "There is going to be a series two," Hiddleston smiled mischievously. "That's a complete sentence I think. I'll get into real trouble if I say more."

Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, WandaVision will follow on from Avengers: Endgame with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their titular roles, living in the suburbs having just gotten married.

The time-bending trailer sees Wanda and Vision reunited in a black and white 50s-esque domestic dinner party, unable to remember how they met, before reality warps into more seemingly the modern day.

The series has been created by Jac Shaeffer, the mind behind the upcoming Black Widow film.
