There were reports earlier that Loki will be the story of the character’s younger days with narration by Tom Hiddleston but MCU has surprised us in the past as well so it could be expected that the plot of the series could be about the character’s journey in another dimension. He was then seen in The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Hiddleston first played Loki in Thor in 2011. I knew he was a complex figure. Intelligent yet vulnerable. Angry and lost and broken and witty. I thought it was an amazing opportunity and it’s grown into this network of movies. I feel very fortunate that this character has connected with people.”
