Apart from the Netflix show, Tom Hiddleston has the Loki series in line as well
Expected to be premiered in 2021, the Loki series will stream on Disney+. Once again, Loki fans will get to see their favorite villain creating trouble. While talking about Loki, Tom Hiddleston said:
I feel a huge responsibility for it. I feel a huge sense that this is a character people care about and it means a lot to me to, to deliver the character people know and love. But also I’m evolving the character, developing him, and inventing new things for people to appreciate, or love to hate, or laugh at. I’m usually the butt of the joke. Let’s face it.
Reportedly, Owen Wilson will also be joining the cast. However, the details surrounding his character are not revealed.
Previously, Tom Hiddleston worked in the mini-series, ‘The Night Manager’, which was loved by all. It would be a pleasure to see him on the TV screen once again.
