Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige Shares ‘Loki’ Disney+ Series is a Crime Thriller. Marvel Fans are gearing up for the premiere of ‘Loki’ coming exclusively to Disney+ on June 11th. The series has raised a lot of questions for fans, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has shared that the series will be a “crime thriller” while speaking with IMDbrief.
“[WandaVision] is probably the most overt level — black and white, old fashioned aspect ratio — but every show that we’re working on I think is about creative swings for both Marvel Studios, the MCU and television. So I’m very excited about what we’ve already shown on Falcon and The Winter Solider — that is a very big scale epic action buddy series that we’re excited about. Loki, we’ve not said much about, but is intriguingly different and I think we’ve called it a ‘crime thriller’ — which is not something you would necessarily think of when it came to Loki.”
The series and MCU star Tom Hiddleston recently graced the cover of Empire magazine and opened up about his role as Loki for the past decade. Hiddleston shared that we will get to see Loki “transform” both physically and theoretically. Tom told Empire:
“I want to preserve the freshness of the show for when it emerges, but something to think about is the [show’s] logo, which seems to refresh and restore. The font of how ‘Loki’ is spelled out seems to keep changing shape. Loki is the quintessential shapeshifter. His mercurial nature is that you don’t know whether, across the MCU, he’s a hero or a villain or an anti-hero. You don’t know whether you can trust him. He literally and physically changes shape into an Asgardian guard, or into Captain America repeatedly. Thor talks about how he could change into a snake.”
Marvel Studios’ “Loki” features the God of Mischief as he steps out of his brother’s shadow in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” Tom Hiddleston returns as the title character, joined by Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant. Kate Herron directs “Loki,” and Michael Waldron is head writer.
