Disney+’s newest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki, was slated to premiere on the platform on June 11, however, star Tom Hiddleston (Thor) announced that the series will premiere two days earlier, on Wednesday, June 9, according to Variety. This will disrupt the regular order of how Disney+ has released past Marvel series, such as WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which both released new episodes on Fridays.
“I’ve noticed that in these long superhero montages, Loki tends to get a bit left out, even though arguable he’s incredibly heroic himself – cunning, charming, I could go on,” said Hiddleston in his official video announcement. “But maybe….why don’t I just prove it to you. Wednesdays are the new Fridays,” via Variety. The series follows Loki after the time-traveling shenanigans he endured in Avengers: Endgame; he is expected to be recruited by an organization called the Time Keepers to fix the flow of time.
Alongside the recently-concluded series which also show our heroes after the events of Avengers: Endgame, including WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Marvel is slated to release more content in the coming months and years. This includes What If…? which is set for Summer 2021, Hawkeye, which is set for later this year, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which is scheduled for February 2023, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which is set for May 2023.
