Loki‘s head writer Michael Waldron has recently revealed that Loki Season 2 gets a new head writer in Eric Martin. Waldron, who also wrote Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is involved in Loki Season 2, but Martin it seems will serve as head scribe. Check out what Waldron had to say in a recent interview with DigitalSpy. Waldron was talking about Loki connecting to Multiverse of Madness and then back again to Loki Season 2.
“Well, I mean, look, everything leads into everything, right?” he said. “We’ve hired a couple of great directors. [Justin] Benson and [Aaron] Moorhead [Loki season two directors] are brilliant. And Eric Martin has taken over as head writer for season 2.
“So the creative team is fantastic. As Tom [Hiddleston, who plays Loki] once said, there’s plenty more mischief to come.”
Not gonna lie, I may be slightly disappointed that Waldron isn’t leading the writing room this time as I loved Loki Season 1. That’s not to say Season won’t be as great, or better. I just already kinda know what to expect from Waldron.
Waldron is very busy to be fair. Not only did Waldron serve as the writer for Multiverse of Madness he has also been tapped by Kevin Feige for a non-Marvel project. At some point, Kevin Feige is producing a Star Wars movie and it’s Waldron who he has tasked with developing that idea.
Waldron is still expected to executive produce Loki Season 2. Therefore, hopefully his hand will still be in the mix. I don’t think I can see Multiverse of Madness until next week some time, due to life complications. However I look forward to it.
