For a while now, it’s been speculated that Richard E. Grant (Old Loki) and Sophia Di Martino (Lady Loki) will play different versions of the God of Mischief in the upcoming Loki series. In the comics, he’s had many incarnations, so it would make sense to include some of them in the Disney+ series.
Now in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirms that you will see more versions of the character, and it’s all thanks to the Multiverse.
“Part of the fun of the Multiverse and playing with time is seeing other versions of characters,” he says, “and other versions of the titular character in particular.”
Of course, Feige wouldn’t reveal if this is who Grant or Di Martino would be playing. However, given that their character’s names have yet to be announced, I think it’s pretty obvious that at least one of them will be.
Also, during the interview, Feige wouldn’t confirm or deny whether Loki would somehow tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Back in November, the MCU architect said that the series would, but he now seems to have backtracked on those comments.
Starring Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Owen Wilson (Mobius M. Mobius), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Ravonna Lexus Renslayer), and Wunmi Mosaku (Hunter B-15), Loki will premiere on Disney+ on June 9th. In January, it was reported that unlike other Marvel Studios produced shows (WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier), Loki will have a second season.
