We have known for some time that Loki would be getting his own TV show on Disney’s new streaming service Disney +. Fans have wondered just how this would be possible given that Loki was killed by Thanos at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War last year. Therefore officially Loki is well and truly dead in the MCU, for now.
The theory from some fans was that this would be a story about Loki from before this point, possibly covering some of the adventures he had after the events of Thor, before his reappearance in Avengers as the main antagonist.
However, thanks to our buddy Charles Murphy from That Hashtag Show, we now have an intriguing little rumor to consider, check out Murphy’s tweet below.

So could this show possibly feature a younger/new cast playing the likes of Loki, Thor and Odin, with Hiddleston narrating? I have to say that this doesn’t at first sound that interesting to me. Part of what makes Loki such a great character is Hiddleston himself.
But is this true? As reliable as Charles tends to be, he is labeling this as a “rumor” and not an exclusive, so it’s likely he can’t get a second source just yet. I must admit to hoping it’s false, but that doesn’t mean squat. At the end of the day, we may have to wait until we have either a corroborating rumor from an alternate source, or something more official from Marvel (though the likelihood of the latter any time soon is probably pretty close to zero).
Would a show featuring the far younger adventures of Loki interest you? Share any thoughts you have in the usual place below.
