Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame!
Even though it won’t debut until 2021, the Disney+ series Loki promises a fresh start for Tom Hiddleston’s fan favorite character. After escaping with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame, he’s been given a whole new lease on life. Now that Loki’s fate is in his own hands, Hiddleston is eager to show fans what’s next for the Asgardian trickster.
While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Hiddleston expressed his gratitude and excitement about the new series.
“It’s very, very exciting because in many ways it’s the character you know, but in a context you’ve never seen him in before,” said Hiddleston. “And if I say any more, I’m gonna say too much. So that’s what’s so thrilling – there’s so much to explore that I haven’t yet explored. That’s very exciting.”

The show will also follow the post-Endgame incarnation of Loki, instead of his more sympathetic incarnation from Thor: Ragnarok. Hiddleston addressed that during his appearance at last month’s San Diego Comic-Con.
“Just about the last thing that happened to him was he got Hulk-smashed,” said Hiddleston. “So there’s a lot of psychological evolution that is still yet to happen. [Kevin Feige] has generally shown me what his plans are. I can’t tell you any of them, but it is one of the most exciting creative opportunities I think I’ve ever come across. This is new territory, a new world, new challenges, and I cannot wait to get started.”
Fans will have to wait just a bit longer, because Loki won’t make its debut on Disney+ until spring 2021.
