Loki, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier Looking at August Production

Comicbook.Com is reporting that Loki will resume production sometime in August!

Hollywood’s migration to Atlanta continues as productions look to resume following the coronavirus pandemic. Now, it looks like Marvel’s Loki and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier shows slated for release on Disney+ are going to head to Pinewood Studios in Atlanta when they get back to work. While Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings is aiming for a production restart later this month, a report claims that Loki and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will be gearing up for August shoots, getting through new pre-production stages throughout July. Safe to say, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier won’t be releasing for its original August target.

Will Loki TV Series Have a Second Season?

A recent interview with Clark Gregg done with Variety has rumors swirling about a possible second season for Loki the television series! See below for article!

We already know that the first season of Loki, currently due sometime in 2021, is going to be six episodes much like the other Marvel Studios limited series on Disney+. There has been some speculation that Loki could be a multi-season show, but nothing completely official yet. Until now.

Variety has an interview with Clark Gregg about the final season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which starts this Wednesday on ABC, and he had this to say about Loki from what Tom Hiddleston told him: “But I’d be lying if I didn’t say boy, that would really be interesting to start the experiment over, doing 10 episodes or 12 episodes the way Tom Hiddleston told me he was doing [on “Loki”] with that kind of budget and that Marvel Cinematic production team.”

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.

Marvel Studios Shuts Down Disney+ Shows ‘Loki’ And ‘WandaVision’ Over Coronavirus Concerns

Deadline is reporting that due to the Coronavirus, the production for both Loki and WandaVision has been shut down by Marvel.

Marvel Studios has added LokiandWandaVision to the list of its Disney+ shows that are on hold because of coronavirus concerns, Deadline has confirmed.The studio previously announced The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings would be delayed. Now, the other Marvel shows in production join it. Shows in pre-production will continue work remotely. On Friday, Disney also suspended its live action films, including The Last Duel, The Little Mermaid, Home Alone, Nightmare Alley, Peter Pan & Wendy and Shrunk. Disney TV Studios suspended production o some series and all in-cycle pilots.

Restrictions on events and travel were cited when the Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier from Marvel shut down production. The show stars Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan as the title characters, and is a spinoff from the Captain America and Avengers films.

The show has been shooting for months in Atlanta, but they began a short shoot in Prague last Friday that was to be completed in about a week. Today, the studio shut down the production and called everybody home to Atlanta. No word at the moment whether the show will return to Prague, but it seems unlikely.

Loki will see Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the God of Mischief from multiple films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sophia Di Martino are also in the cast.WandaVision has Paul Bethany and Elisabeth Olsen starring in a look at the relationship between a mutant witch and an android, set in the 1950s.

Tom Hiddleston will lead a Loki series for Disney Streaming Service

Collider – Loki’s not gone for good, folks. Word broke in September that Disney was making big plans for the good people at the Disney-owned Marvel Studios to be a part of Disney’s upcoming streaming service. Those plans were rumored to include a standalone Loki series with Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the love-to-hate-him MCU character, and today Disney confirmed this is indeed the plan. Details are scant, but Disney said a live-action series centered around Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, will debut on the streaming service—which now has a name: Disney+

When word first broke about these standalone series in September, the reports were that these shows were being envisioned as extensions of the existing MCU and could be limited or miniseries runs consisting of just a handful of episodes each, telling a complete story. That would gel with the busy schedules of actors like Hiddleston while also letting fans experience a movie-level MCU story in more of a longform format.

These Disney+ shows will differ from previous Marvel shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. and Daredevilin one key regard: Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will oversee the Disney+ Marvel shows, while the Netflix and ABC Marvel shows were overseen by Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. So don’t worry, we’re not in for another Inhumans-level disaster.

Other MCU actors rumored for their own standalone series include Elizabeth Olsen, who could get a limited Scarlet Witch run, and Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan who might be leading a Falcon/Winter Soldier series. The only show that has been confirmed is this Loki one for now, even though we still don’t know who’s writing, producing, or directing it.

That said, as Disney aims to launch Disney+ at the end of next year, they’re looking to bank as much content as possible that’ll be available when it launches. The live-action Star Wars show The Mandalorian is already filming, and today Disney announced that a Rogue One prequel series starring Diego Luna is also in the works. This is all in addition to an animated Monsters Inc. series and a live-action High School Musical series, as well as original feature films like the live-action Lady and the Tramp.

Buckle up, folks. #PeakTV ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
