In a new interview with Forbes, one of the stars in the upcoming Loki series, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, says production has resumed in Atlanta, Georgia. The Disney+ series becomes the fourth Marvel Studios project (The Falcon and Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) to resume production since being shut down in March.
As for Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s role on the show, like most actors in the MCU she wouldn’t reveal much.
“I’m obviously sworn to secrecy about everything to do with Loki, but it feels great to be back. Everyone is trying to do it as safely as possible under the circumstances, and it feels good. I’m excited. It’s a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see it.”
In the spring, there were rumors that her role would be a high-ranking position in the Time Variance Authority. An organization revealed to be involved in the show after their logo was spotted on Loki’s shirt in a teaser released in February.
Along with Mbatha-Raw, the series will star Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, and Owen Wilson. Originally slated to be released on the streaming service in Spring 2021, it’s unknown if that’s still the plan after production was delayed. I imagine we will get some kind of update during Disney’s Investor Day, set to be held on October 7th.
