Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series for Disney Plus has found its director Kate Herron.
At Disney’s D23 Expo, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that Kate Herron will direct Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series. Kate Herron’s previous work includes Netflix’s Sex Education and she will soon helm an episode of Daybreak, so Loki is in good hands. Not much is currently known about Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series except that it will follow the God of Mischief through key moments in time.
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki was among the first casualties in Infinity War. After a failed attempt to assassinate Thanos, Josh Brolin’s Mad Titan choked Loki to death. The God of Mischief would eventually return in Avengers: Endgame in the 2012 timeline where he stole the Cosmic Cube from the Avengers before making his escape. The Loki series will reportedly revolve around this version of the character.
