This is interesting. Earlier this afternoon, Marvel Studios announced on social media that the upcoming Loki series will premiere on Disney+ two days earlier (June 9th) than previously announced. The studio also announced that new episodes of the Tom Hiddleston led series will be released on Wednesdays.
The previous Marvel-produced shows (WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier) for the Disney streamer were released on Fridays. No reason was given by the studio for the change, but I suspect it was made to separate itself from other streaming services’ new releases.
With a little over a month to go, Loki has been in full marketing mode. On Monday, an exclusive look was shown during halftime of the Warriors-Pelicans game on ESPN.
