Tom Hiddleston discusses why he enjoyed producing Loki and playing in it. The God of Mischief returns to the show after stealing the Tesseract in 2012 as a result of the Avengers’ quest to secure all of the Infinity Stones in Avengers: Endgame.
However, because this was not how events unfolded in the first place, the Time Variance Authority (TVA) intervened and caught this alternate version of Loki. He is offered the opportunity to stop another Loki version from posing a severe threat to the Sacred Timeline, but instead discovers larger forces at work.
Season 1 of Loki
Before Loki arrived on the streaming service, it was already one of Marvel’s most anticipated Phase 4 productions. The series not only gave Loki a new lease on life, explained all of the time-related hijinks, and set the setting for the appearance of Kang the Conqueror, the key MCU Phase 4 villain, but it also brought in the highly-anticipated multiverse in the most unexpected way.
And, as an executive producer, Tom Hiddleston was involved in the creation of all of these fascinating plotlines.
Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki, explained on Tumblr how his experience working to make the series overpowered his love for acting. He’s realised that, while there are opportunities to be creative when filming, they are really limited. However, because Loki was also an executive producer, he was able to contribute from the beginning to the creation of the tale and the development of the characters.
Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) killed Jonathan Majors’ He Who Remains at the end of Season 1. This caused the multiverse to be triggered by allowing numerous branch timelines that he had been keeping under control to develop at an alarming rate.
While no more details about Loki season 2 have been disclosed, it’s quite likely that Kang the Conqueror will appear on the show long before he appears as the main villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and will set in action the multiverse devastation predicted in Doctor Strange 2.
