He may not have "ultimate power," but "Rick and Morty" writer Michael Waldron will be calling the shots on Marvel's upcoming "Loki" series.
Tom Hiddleston will be reprising his role as the god of mischief in the show, which will be one of the first original series for Disney's new streaming service, Disney+.
Waldon will write the pilot, act as show creator, and executive produce the series.
The series will reportedly follow Loki as he shapeshifts through human history and influences historical events. (So it will be his fault, probably that the Titanic sank. Or was it those guys in "Time Bandits?" Which is also supposedly being turned into a TV series.)
Besides writing and producing "Rick and Morty," Waldron is developing "Florida Man" with Steven Soderbergh for Paramount TV.
Waldron also wrote "The Worst Guy of All Time (And the Girl Who Came to Kill Him)," a sci-fi rom-com feature spec script that earned him a spot on the 2018 Black List.
By the way, we can also expect Marvel series focusing on Vision and Scarlet Witch and one about Falcon and The Winter Soldier. Will the actors who've played them in the Marvel films reprise these roles? We'll see.
