Tom Hiddleston Reveals ‘Loki’ Is Six Hours, Teases Foes “the Like of Which He Has Never Seen”

One of the more deviously intriguing projects in Marvel's Phase 4 future is Loki, the Disney+ streaming series starring Tom Hiddleston as Agard's favorite trickster god. At San Diego Comic-Con, the studio confirmed the show would, in fact, pick up right after Loki's theft of the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame and follow the much-beloved deity through time. Now, thanks to an interview Hiddleston sat down for with MTV News, we know the first season of that centuries-hopping adventure will consist of six episodes. Hiddleston casually mentioned the episode count …

Tom Hiddleston Discusses Loki and Explains The Villain Take on "More Formable Opponents" in The Series

Tom Hiddleston recently sat down with MTV to talk about his career and naturally, Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series Loki came up in the conversation. It’s going to be interesting to see how they play with this character in the series and how the story of him traveling through different periods of time plays out.

It was recently revealed that he will be traveling through human history… and he will be changing historical events in the process. That’s not all though, Hiddleston also teased in the interview that Loki will find himself up against opponents, “the like of which he has never seen or known.”

“He has very specific gifts, his intelligence, treachery, his mischief his magic, and seeing him go up against more formable opponents. The like of which he has never seen or known.”

That’s going to be cool to see! I’m really curious

Tom Hiddleston knew about Marvel’s Loki series before Avengers: Infinity War

Tom Hiddleston, the star of Disney+ Loki series, has revealed how long he has been keeping quiet about its existence.

It was announced by Disney back in December that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki would be returning for a live-action limited series on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, but how long had the actor known that Avengers: Endgame wasn’t going to be his last McU appearance?

Well, in a recent interview for MTV News’ Personal Space the actor revealed: “I knew about six weeks before the worldwide release of Avengers: Infinity War. Which meant I had to go and do press for Avengers: Infinity War going, ‘Yup, that’s it guys.'”

Of course, many fans are excited to see Loki returning to the fray once more and Hiddleston himself is looking forward to spending more time with the character:

“I know this character now. I feel that the audience knows him.

Tom Hiddleston Knew Loki Would Get His Own Series Well Before The Release Of ‘Infinity War’

It’s been a joke in the ‘Thor’ film series at Marvel Studios for years, but it still rings true today — just because you watch Tom Hiddleston’s Loki character die, doesn’t actually mean he’s gone for good. And last we saw Loki, in “Avengers: Infinity War,” his neck was snapped by Thanos. Pretty much a definitive ending, right? Ha! Silly fan. Not only is he coming back, but Hiddleston apparently knew about it well before ‘Infinity War’ was in theaters.

Community star didn’t know which Avengers movie her Endgame cameo was in

Yvette Nicole Brown, one of the former stars of Community, says that she didn’t know which Avengers movie her cameo would be in.

The Russo brothers, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, enjoy bringing in their old colleagues from Community in for McU cameos and the latest to do so was Yvette Nicole Brown.

However, the actress revealed to CNN that she didn’t even know which film her cameo was for! It ultimately landed in Endgame and the actress revealed the surprising nature of how it came to be. Apparently, Joe Russo sent her text while she was on set for ABC’s The Mayor:

“I was like, ‘I need next week off, because I’ve got to do this thing!’ And luckily, because Marvel is also under the Disney-ABC umbrella, they worked everything out and I was able to go to Atlanta for

Marvel writer has an issue with Spider-Man killing in Avengers: Endgame

Long-time Spider-Man comic writer Dan Slott has an issue with the character killing in Avengers: Endgame.

Many of our favourite heroes are renowned for their code or decision not to kill their enemies, proving to be morally superior than those who wish them and the world so much harm. Spider-Man is seen as one of these characters.

Therefore, Spider-Man comic book writer Dan Slott saw the character’s decision to use lethal force in Endgame against Thanos’ minions as a mistake and not in keeping with his character: “Confession: There was 1 moment I did Not like in all of Avengers: Endgame. This. Peter Parker shouldn’t kill. Even when it comes to Thanos’ evil army of alien spacehounds. But not liking 1 moment out of 3 hours and 2 minutes ain’t that bad. :)”

Idris Elba Wants To Return To The McU For Thor: Love And Thunder

From the moment it was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con, Thor: Love and Thunder became arguably the most highly-anticipated entry in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The fourth installment in the God of Thunder’s solo franchise isn’t just bringing back Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and Taika Waititi, but Love and Thunder will also see Natalie Portman returning to the McU to take up the mantle of Thor.

Waititi’s work on Ragnarok not only completely reinvigorated what was one of the McU’s most stagnant standalone franchises, but it also gave Chris Hemsworth a completely new lease of life as the God of Thunder, with the new and more comedic version of the character becoming one of the standouts in the entire shared universe. Waititi’s success certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed by those with connections to Marvel Studios, and in a recent interview during

New Details on Marvel's Loki Series, Which Will See the Trickster Causing Trouble Throughout Time

There were a lot of announcements about what Marvel is bringing to Disney+ at Sdcc this year. One of the most exciting upcoming projects, for me at least, is Loki. Tom Hiddleston will be reprising his iconic roll in this series that will debut on the streaming service in Spring 2021, and we got our first look at it in a piece of concept art that was previously shared.

With Marvel not really giving many details about the series, there is room for speculation. It has been previously rumored that the series would jump around to a few different timelines. MCUCosmic.com has access to an inside source close to the production of the show that offered some new details and this is what was revealed:

Now new information about the Loki series has surfaced via production sources, as it looks like casting for the series will be starting soon. That

Thor: Love and Thunder to Be Directly Set Up in Loki Disney+ Series?
It's beginning to look like the upcoming Loki Disney+ series will directly set up Thor: Love and Thunder. Marvel Studios officially announced both projects at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have more than a few questions. With that being said, there have been some rumors over the past few months in regard to Loki's mysterious return to the screen and they may have just been proven to be true.

The Loki TV series will see the fan-favorite character return after the events of Avengers: Endgame. In the movie, we briefly see the 2012 version of Loki escaping with the Tesseract. New alleged details about the Disney+ series indicate that he will indeed be traveling through world history, which would explain the concept art we saw featuring the character in the mid-1970s. Loki will be traveling through human history while changing historic events. However, how do

Infinity Saga box set might include some “really, really bad” deleted scenes, suggests Marvel’s Kevin Feige

With Marvel Studios bringing the curtain down on its epic 23-movie ‘Infinity Saga’, it’s surely only a matter of time until Disney unleashes a huge box set bringing together all three of the first phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Given the films’ combined $22.5 billion box office haul, one has to imagine there’s plenty of hardcore fans willing to break the bank for such a box set, especially if it comes complete with a solid selection of previously unseen bonus features – and, according to Marvel supremo Kevin Feige – these may well include some “really, really bad” deleted scenes which Marvel has “been too humiliated to show” until now.

“If we do a big, giant Infinity Saga box set, we might include, I’m assuming if you’re going to spend the money to buy a box set with everything in it, you’re a fan,” said Feige during

Loki TV Show Will Set Up Jane Foster Becoming Thor In Love And Thunder

We’ve known about it for a while, but Marvel’s upcoming Loki TV series was officially announced last month at Comic-Con. The Disney Plus show will feature the Tesseract-thieving version of the God of Mischief from the alternate timeline created in Avengers: Endgame as he travels through Earth’s history to do what he does best: cause some chaos.

It was also made clear at Marvel’s Sdcc panel about Phase 4 that all the Disney Plus series will directly fit into the ongoing continuity of the McU. For instance, WandaVision will lead into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. How Loki would play into the bigger picture wasn’t made clear at the time, but a new report may reveal the truth about how the series will lay the groundwork for Thor: Love and Thunder.

FandomWire writes that Loki will conclude with the Asgardian trickster making his way back to the prime timeline,

Kevin Feige wanted the Avengers: Endgame finale to be as impactful as Logan

President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has claimed he wanted the Avengers: Endgame finale to be as impactful as the ending of Logan.

During the final battle in Endgame, Tony Stark tragically met his demise after channelling the power of the Infinity Stones to defeat Thanos and his army.

While speaking about Tony’s death (via: Cinema Blend), Feige stated the crew took huge inspiration from the death of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in Logan when deciding how the hero would bow out of the franchise.

Feige stated, “We saw Logan like the audience did, in a theater having nothing to do with the making of that film and went, ‘oh my god, what an amazing ending for Hugh as this character.’ And there are only a handful of examples where an actor so associated with a character can go out perfectly. That’s what we desperately wanted to give Robert,

The Russos reveal why Black Panther was the first hero to return in Avengers: Endgame

Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors of Avengers: Endgame, have revealed why Black Panther was the first hero to return from Thanos’ snap.

One of the major moments of Avengers: Endgame was when all of the heroes who had perished due to Thanos’ deeds returned to fight the climactic battle. The first hero on the scene was Black Panther and there was a very particular reason why.

During a recent Reddit Ama (via ComicBook.com), the Russo brothers explained this decision: “We spent a lot of time in the edit room playing around with the sequencing of the portals. We probably didn’t lock that section of the movie until about a month before the film was in theaters. We always wanted Sam to be the first one to communicate with Cap via his comm and Sam was last in Wakanda, so logically the first portal that would open would the Wakandan portal.

Russo Brothers Explain That ‘Agent Carter’ Cameo in ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Russo Brothers Explain That ‘Agent Carter’ Cameo in ‘Avengers: Endgame’
Avengers: Endgame” featured many, many cameos, but one of the more surprising ones was when James D’Arcy briefly appeared as Howard Stark’s butler Edwin Jarvis, reprising his role from the short-lived ABC series “Agent Carter.”

During a Reddit Ama on Thursday, directors Joe and Anthony Russo explained why they included Jarvis in “Endgame,” which marked the first time any Marvel Studios film referenced a character exclusively from Marvel TV’s McU-adjacent universe.

“Because we love James,” the directors wrote. “Also, because Markus and Mcfeely were instrumental in engineering that show, and because [Joe Rosso] directed one of the episodes. It seemed appropriate.”

The Russos reveal how they were approached to direct Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, have revealed how they were approached to helm the two movies.

With Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame now in the bank, it’s safe to say that the Russo brothers have directed two of the biggest movies ever, impressing many by the finished result.

But how were the two men approached to make these massive movies? Well, during a recent Reddit Ama, one fan asked them this very question. Here is how the Russos responded:

“Kevin, and co-president of Marvel Studios, Louis D’Esposito, asked us to swing by their offices while we were in post on Civil War. The conversation, in short, was, ‘Guess what. We want to make the two biggest films ever made and we want to shoot them back to back. And we want you guys to direct them.’ Our response — ‘Fuck yeah.

First Plot Details For Loki TV Show Tease A Time Travel Adventure

While Loki might be permanently gone in the main McU timeline, it looks like we haven’t seen the last of him. Despite being killed by Thanos back in Infinity War, everyone’s favorite trickster god made a return in Endgame during the Avengers’ time heist, which saw Tony Stark, Ant-Man, Captain America, and Hulk travel back to 2012 in the midst of the Chitauri invasion in New York City.

Unfortunately, chaos broke out during an attempt to retrieve the Space Stone, and in the ensuing confusion, Loki was able to escape from the custody of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ended up teleporting away with the Tesseract. However, as you’re probably aware, we haven’t seen the last of him.

Actor Tom Hiddleston is set to reprise his role in the upcoming Disney Plus series, and it looks like it’ll follow the version of Loki who escaped during the aforementioned heist.

Avengers: Endgame writer confirms that Thanos’ blade is stronger than vibranium

Thanks to Christopher Markus, the co-writer of Avengers: Endgame, we now have confirmation that Thanos’ blade is stronger than vibranium.

Those familiar with the McU know that the strongest metal on earth is vibranium, a material we have learned is near indestructible and perfect for Captain American’s shield. However, in Endgame, the shield was broken by the massive blade wielded by Thanos.

We now have confirmation that whatever that blade was made from is indeed stronger than vibranium. Speaking on the film’s directors’ commentary (via ComicBook.com), co-writer Christopher Markus said: “You can also see that while Vibranium is the strongest substance on Earth, whatever Thanos’ straight razor there is made out of is stronger.”

“Well, Thanos clearly knew of Eitri,” added director Joe Russo.

“That’s true, he’d have him make him a helicopter blade,” co-writer Stephen McFeely said.

Avengers: Endgame directors clarify how Captain America returned to the present

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Endgame, have clarified how Captain America returned to the present at the end of the movie.

With all the time travel woven into the very fabric of Endgame‘s plot, some members of the audience might not be entirely clear on how Captain America was able to return to the present at the movie’s end, especially as he was just sitting there in his civilian clothes.

Well, directors Anthony and Joe Russo have tried to clear up a few of the details. Participating in a recent Reddit Ama (via ComicBook.com), they responded to a fan who asked what happened to Cap’s quantum suit:

“You are correct in that he would have had to have worn the quantum suit, using a pym particle to make the jump. He’s not wearing the suit on the bench, because that is not

Kevin Feige pushed for Avengers: Endgame not to be Infinity War – Part 2

Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely say that Marvel Studios boss, Kevin Feige, didn’t want Avengers: Endgame to be Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2.

As many fans will remember, initially Avengers: Endgame was going to simply be Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2 before undergoing a change. However, Marvel decided instead to make it a more distinct film, largely thanks to a push by boss Kevin Feige.

Writers of the film Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely recently spoke to Backstory (via Comic Book) on the subject. Markus said:

“He definitely fought for making the two [final] movies sort of freestanding stories. Obviously they’re connected, but he never wanted a part one and part two. He never wanted a cliffhanger. Some people call the end of Infinity War a cliffhanger, but it’s not. It comes to a definitive end. It’s just sad.”

McFeely added: “Kevin’s the coach in a way.
