Some new details have emerged this week on another project the god of mischief will be seen in. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hiddleston will appear as Loki in the upcoming film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The Hollywood Reporter didn’t reveal how big of a part Hiddleston’s Loki will have in the film. I’m sure more details will come out in the coming months.
During the mid-credit scene of the season finale of Loki, it was finally announced that the Disney+ series would have a second season. Unfortunately, it’s been revealed that a critical member of the production team will not be back.
During an interview with Deadline, Kate Herron, who directed all six episodes of the first season, said she would not return for the second one.
During an interview this week with the Associated Press to promote his new movie Space Jam: A New Legacy, actor Don Cheadle, who plays James Rhodes (aka War Machine) in the MCU, gave an update on his upcoming Marvel Studios produced series Armor Wars.
“We are just talking about what that show is going to be. We probably will start filming sometime next year and are just kind of cracking the story right now, deciding what’s that journey gonna look like, what’s Rhodey’s…the iteration of this going to be. Obviously people know Armor Wars-if they know Armor Wars they know what the series is about but it’s also kind of figuring out how to establish and dig really deep into who Rhodey is because we haven’t really seen a lot of that in the movies.”
The MCU is going to the Emmys! On Tuesday, it was announced that Marvel Studios’ first Disney+ series, WandaVision, was nominated for 23 Emmys. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier also picked up five nominations.
For WandaVision, the series overall was nominated for “Outstanding Limited Series.” In addition, Elizabeth Olsen (Lead Actress), Paul Bettany (Lead Actor), and Kathryn Hahn (Supporting Actress) were each nominated for their roles.
One of the highlights of Marvel Studios’ first series for Disney+, WandaVision, was the supporting characters. This included Agatha Harkness (played by Kathryn Hahn), who turned out to be the villain in one of the show’s biggest twists.
With Harkness surviving at the end of the series (she’s basically imprisoned by Wanda in Westview), it was assumed that we had not seen the last of her in the MCU.
Well, during a lengthy interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that Agatha will return at some point.
