LOKI Lands RICK AND MORTY's Michael Waldron As Showrunner; How The God Of Mischief Returns Revealed

Tom Hiddleston's Loki was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War but a new report from the trades reveals how the God of Mischief will return for his Disney+ series and, no, we're not getting Kid Loki!

Loki has landed a showrunner in the form of Rick and Morty's Michael Waldron. He will write the pilot for Marvel Studios as well as serving as showrunner and executive producer. 

Here's the big news, though: despite all those rumours about Tom Hiddleston only narrating the Disney+ series, he will indeed star and The Hollywood Reporter adds that "the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shapeshifter pops up throughout human history as 
unlikely influencer on historical events."

That's a clever way to "resurrect" the God of Mischief after his death at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, and it debunks those rumours about Kid Loki once and for all. Honestly, it wouldn't be at all shocking to see him somehow find a way to survive what the Mad Titan did to him. 

As of right now, this is the third Marvel TV show on Disney+ that's landed a showrunner as both Scarlet Witch & The Vision and The Falcon & The Winter Soldier have writers attached. Production should begin soon as we're sure Disney will want at least one of them ready for when the online streaming service launches. 

Are you glad that Hiddleston will be reprising the title role in Loki? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
