Taika Waititi On Whether Loki Will Be in Thor: Love and Thunder

Taika Waititi recently had a live commentary stream on Instagram and briefly mentioned whether Loki will return to the Thor movie franchise in the upcoming fourth installment, Thor: Love and Thunder.

During a live online viewing party for Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi briefly addressed the topic of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki returning, telling fans, “Oh, ye… I can’t say.” As he tried to figure what he is allowed to say on the subject, Taika Waititi described the type of conversation he would have with Marvel to make sure his ideas didn’t interfere with their overall plans:

“If I had wanted to kill Loki for some reason, I would ask about it and Marvel might have told me that they needed him for Infinity War. That’s how I usually find out about the stuff that’s coming up.”

Loki Will Struggle With Identity & Control in Marvel Disney+ Show

Here is some news on the Loki television series as posted by ScreenRant.

Marvel’s Loki showrunner Michael Waldron says the trickster god will struggle with his identity and control on the upcoming Disney+ series. During his first appearance in the MCU in 2011’s Thor, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki was a tragic figure still wrestling with the truth about his birthright. He returned a year later as the villain in The Avengers, using the Tesseract to lead the Chitauri army’s invasion of earth on Thanos’ orders. Many fans took issue with Loki’s transformation from complicated antihero to two-dimensional bad guy in that movie, but it’s since been confirmed he was under the control of the Mind Stone.

Loki would go on to continue evolving in subsequent MCU films before dying a noble, if unceremonious, death at Thanos’ hands in Avengers: Infinity War. However, the version of Loki featured in the upcoming Disney+ series is the one who’d only just been defeated in The Avengers when he managed to escape with the Tesseract thanks to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ time-traveling shenanigans in last year’s Endgame. As such, it makes sense for Hiddleston’s Loki to be struggling with his old identity issues on the show, as Waldron says will be the case.

Speaking on the Forever Dogs Podcast, Waldron said Loki’s arc on the show will be informed by his journey in the MCU over the last decade, especially his personal crisis with his identity and control of who he is. You can read his full quote below.

“I think it’s the struggle with identity, who you are, who you want to be. I’m really drawn to characters who are fighting for control. Certainly you see that with Loki over the first ten years of movies, he’s out of control at pivotal parts of his life, he was adopted and everything and that manifests itself through anger and spite towards his family.”

Outside of The Avengers, Loki has typically been one of the MCU’s most fascinating characters. It’s never entirely clear what he wants and his allegiances can shift in the blink of an eye, much to his brother Thor’s disgruntlement. The version of Loki on the Disney+ series should be all the more of a wildcard; he’s only just been defeated by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and hasn’t gone through everything that happened in Thor: The Dark World and Ragnarok, so even he’s probably uncertain of who he really wants to be. Plot-wise, the show will follow this iteration of Loki in the aftermath of Endgame, as he travels thorough time and “resumes his role as the God of Mischief.” As a result, he won’t be battling Thor or Odin for control over his life, but the agents of the Time Variance Authority (who, understandably, don’t take kindly to him messing with history).

With a premise that brings to mind DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Loki has the makings of one of the zanier installments in the MCU to date, in addition to being a great character piece for its star. Production has halted on the show over concerns about the coronavirus outbreak for the time being, but the hope is the series will be able to resume filming soon enough to still make a 2021 release date (even if it’s delayed from its original early 2021 launchpad). Having six episodes to fill, the Loki show has the potential to really dive deeply into the trickster god’s psychology and get to the heart of what makes him tick. So far, it sounds like Waldron and his team have every intention of doing exactly that.

Loki Series Rumored to Feature Minutemen

While production on the Loki series has halted until further notice, here’s some news in regards to the features being rumored to be in the show as reported by Heroic Hollywood.

The Minutemen are rumored to appear in Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series on Disney Plus.

After recent set photos teased Tom Hiddleston’s Loki working with the Time Variance Agency, new casting details from IMDB seem to reveal the inclusion of the Minutemen in the Disney Plus series. For those not familiar with the robotic characters, they act as a police force for the timestream, keeping things in order for the universe. Since the Tom Hiddleston show will jump across time, it makes sense that the Minutemen would appear to try fix anything that’s out of place.

The Minutemen discovery originally came from Murphy’s Multiverse, who spotted that two members of the stunt crew are listed as playing the robotic warriors on Loki‘s IMDB page for two episodes of the series. Although the news shouldn’t be completely believed since the site can be edited by anyone, the Minutemen’s inclusion makes sense since the TVA will seemingly play a huge role in the Tom Hiddleston series. However, the reveal begs the question why the Minutemen haven’t appeared when the Avengers travelled back in time during Endgame.

Tom Hiddleston to star in stage production of Pinter’s Betrayal

It all started on Wednesday afternoon, when Tom Hiddleston tweeted a minute-long wordless video to his 3.5 million followers. In it, the star of The Night Manager, strolls into focus in the Leake Street Arches underneath Waterloo station. Bearded, hair pushed back like a sexy professor, wearing suit but no tie, he looked at the camera with undigested sadness. Then the word “Betrayal” filled the screen. More from The Telegraph:

Tom Hiddleston is to return to the London stage in a new production of Betrayal, considered one of Harold Pinter’s greatest plays.

Hiddleston was a hugely accomplished stage actor before making his name in Hollywood as Loki in the Marvel comic book films, and on television in the BBC’s The Night Manager.

On Thursday, 40 years after the first performances of the play at the National Theatre, the Jamie Lloyd Company announced Betrayal would run from March to June next year.

It will be the culmination of Lloyd’s successful Pinter at the Pinter season, which has seen all of the playwright’s one-act plays performed at the theatre which bears his name, marking the tenth anniversary of his death. Martin Freeman, Tamsin Greig, David Suchet, Jane Horrocks, Danny Dyer and Lee Evans are among the actors who have taken part.

Betrayal tells the story of two married couples and a seven-year extramarital affair and is inspired by Pinter’s affair with Joan Bakewell in the 1960s, while he was still married to Vivien Merchant and she to Michael Bakewell.

Hiddleston will play Robert, a role first played by Daniel Massey. Hiddleston said: “Betrayal is a masterpiece. Jamie Lloyd’s Pinter at the Pinter season is terrific and I am so pleased that he’s asked me to be part of it.

Pinter, awarded the Nobel prize for literature in 2005, is regarded as one of the finest, most influential and most provocative dramatists of his generation. The word Pinteresque – long pauses, hidden menace – even appears in the Oxford English Dictionary.

Hiddleston was last in the West End proper playing Coriolanus at the Donmar Warehouse in 2013 to 2014. Last September he was directed in Hamlet by Kenneth Branagh for three weeks only at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (Rada) 160-seat Jerwood Vanbrugh theatre. It raised money for Rada.

The Guardian’s critic Michael Billington, one of the few to see Hiddleston’s performance, praised the actor’s “ability to combine a sweet sadness with an incandescent fury. He suggests a fierce intellect gnawed by intense melancholy and yet subject to bouts of intemperate rage.
