Loki season 2 has quickly become one of the most beloved projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The head writer for the season, Eric Martin, has revealed his desire to return to Marvel Studios and write more stories, including that of the X-Men.

With the overwhelming success of Loki season 2, Marvel fans have been eyeing Eric Martin as one of the upcoming movers and shakers of the MCU. With so many exciting projects in the works at Marvel Studios, including the X-Men reboot, it’s not clear where the writer will end up next. When asked what his future at the studio holds, Martin reveals that, while he’d love to work on the X-Men, he simply wants to make good stories:

“I think everybody’s probably chasing after X-Men because I think that’s where the richest characters are,” Martin tells Total Film Magazine. “But I mean, who knows? That’s a decision for someone who’s not me.”

“As long as Marvel is happy, of course, I’d love to [work on more MCU projects]. I mean, Marvel has changed my life by trusting me to write this season. It was a lot of responsibility, and I hope I’ve earned that trust. I think, for me, it all comes down to the characters. Do we have deep, interesting characters to work on? That’s what gets me out of bed in the morning. Can I tell a deeply emotional, character-driven story with these people, and on this huge canvas?”

“Marvel has got such an incredible reach and that’s the gift with these [titles]. There are so many different characters that I think can do that, I don’t know, It could be a number of them.”

Given Eric Martin’s talent for balancing ensemble casts in Loki season 2, the writer seems to be a perfect fit for the X-Men. However, given Marvel Studios seems to want the TVA in future MCU projects, Martin may be better served tackling those stories. Either way, it certainly seems he has a bright future in the eyes of Disney and the hearts of fans.

Who else is attached to Loki season two?

Tom Hiddleston is spearheading the cast of Loki season two as the titular God of Mischief. The cast also includes Owen Wilson, Jonathan Majors, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Tara Strong, Eugene Cordero, Rafael Casal, Kate Dickie, Liz Carr, Ke Huy Quan and Neil Ellice.

Eric Martin replaced Michael Waldron as the head writer of Loki for its second season. Martin and Waldron also serve as executive producers on the series alongside Tom Hiddleston, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead. Benson and Moorhead directed the majority of the episodes for the upcoming season.
