Moon Knight directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson have teased new and unexpected directions for the second season of Loki.
Last year, Loki was released on Disney Plus and blew away audiences and critics. The series had the biggest opening of any Marvel Disney Plus series and, unlike other shows, it actually seemed to move the bigger story of the Marvel Cinematic Universe forward. A second season was quickly put into development.
Since the release of the first season, Loki has been filling out its cast members and developers. Moon Knight directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson were brought on to helm the series, replacing original director Kate Herron. From the look of things, however, the directors have some new things in mind for the series.
While speaking to Comicbook.com, the directors opened up about the direction they wanted to take the series. Specifically, Aaron Moorhead talked about how Marvel was expecting the unexpected for a series like this and they intend to bring their skills to Loki:
“I think the biggest thing about Loki is just that it’s actually a lot like Moon Knight, where there’s just no reason to do it if it’s not going to be something new and fresh. It’s funny is, it does feel like Marvel would be willing to walk away unless it actually is something that they felt the unexpected. Like from Moon Knight and especially because Moon Knight is a character where nobody knows almost anything about him, yet. Soon to be changed, right? And so our gloves are off and we get to kind of do whatever we want. And everybody at Marvel and ourselves gets really excited when we are presented with the unexpected. We also of course, hope that people watching feel the same way and we’re gonna bring all that to Loki.”
Here’s the synopsis for the first season of Loki:
In Marvel Studios’ “Loki,” the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Kate Herron, with Michael Waldron serving as head writer, the series stars Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
The first season of Loki is available on Disney Plus with Moon Knight set to debut on March 30th. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming season and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
