We haven’t seen the last of Loki. On Thursday, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed in the company’s latest earnings report that a TV show centered around the half-brother of Thor will be on their newly titled Disney+ streaming service. While there is no additional information available regarding the series right now, it would almost certainly take place before his death in Avengers: Infinity War.
Look, Infinity War came out nearly seven months ago. If you haven’t found out about his fate by way of watching the film, or heard about his death from someone or somewhere, then we’re quite envious of the rock you’re able to live under. Within the first few minutes of the movie, we see Thanos kill Loki after acquiring the Space Stone after coming aboard the ship carrying the remaining inhabitants of Asgard.
The sight of Loki’s lifeless body immediately set the tone for Infinity War, but it also gave us the shocking realization that Tom Hiddleston’s time playing the character had come to an end. However, that wasn’t the case. Hiddleston will reprise his role for the Disney+ series.
In September, Variety reported Loki and Scarlet Witch were expected to receive their own TV series that would live on Disney’s streaming service. It was also rumored that these series would only range from six to eight episodes, which offers leading actors, like Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, an opportunity to pursue other interests without being tied down long-term to this particular project.
Disney+ isn't expected to make its debut in the United States until sometime in late 2019.
