San Diego Comic Con: LOKI

July 20, 2019:

Six years ago to the day, Tom Hiddleston rocked Hall H to its core with a surprise appearance. Today, he proved that Loki isn't the only God of Mischief. Tom - and a whole slew of Marvel actors - crashed the Marvel Presentation to help unveil Marvel's Phase 4 and Disney+ lineup. 

Tom will be a busy man. It was revealed that he will be a part of two separate shows for the new Disney+ streaming series. 

Up first is the Loki series - appropriately named LOKI. It will debut in Spring, 2021 exclusively on Disney+. The series will follow Loki after the events of Endgame. Quick Endgame refresher: The Avengers (or what's left of them at least) go back in time to the Battle of New York. Loki ends up escaping with the Tessaract. This essentially erases the storylines of The Dark WorldRagnarok, and Infinity War where Loki is ultimately redeemed. 

Tom on how the events of Avengers: Endgame will effect his character: You guys saw Avengers, right? So, he's still that guy. And just about that last thing that happened to him was he got Hulk Smashed. So, there's a lot of psychological evolution that is still yet to happen... it is one of the most exciting, creative opportunities I think I have ever come across. This is new territory. A new world. New challenges. I cannot wait to get started. 

And don't he look excited! 

It will also announced that Disney+ is bringing their first animated feature to the MCU, WHAT IF...? Tom Hiddleston will be among the many MCU actors lending their voices to the series scheduled to air in Summer 2021. 

Seeing Tom's OG 2010 Loki headshot on a Marvel screen in 2019 will make you feel things in your feeling places. 

Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman were there to represent the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder film. Natalie hasn't been a part of the Thor series since 2013 so it will be interesting to see how they make up for lost time. Tom wasn't listed in the characters but you never know where Loki may pop up. 

Hype Man Tom was in fine form too. He was the first to greet the newest member of the MCU, Mahershala Ali aka Blade. And sported a promo hat for the Black Widow film. 


One final wave to the crowd. 

On Sunday, Tom shared his excitement on Instagram: Here’s the new Loki logo... and here’s how excited I am to get started.



Tom Hiddleston gave his 2017 SDCC look an upgrade.

I know they look very similar but he is wearing a completely different outfit. Tom swapped out his Burberry for John Smedley ($270), his jbrand for jbrandier ($245), and his Aquatalia for Kurt Geiger London ($155). That beard and those curls: Priceless.
