‘Loki’ Is Back in Production, Says Star Gugu Mbatha-Raw


Good news for Loki from a post-lockdown Hollywood.


In a recent interview with Forbes, actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, The Morning Show), who was cast in the Loki TV series back in February, revealed that the show is back into production:


“I was in the middle of filming when the pandemic happened, so I had a real break, I’ve been painting and reading. Like so many others, I was at home for a long time. Not to make light of the suffering going on, but in some ways, it has been an opportunity for me to get a fresh perspective on things. It is downtime that perhaps I might not have had, and now I’m thankful to be back to work. It’s been a journey for everyone, but it’s all for a greater reason and the greater good.”


She followed it up saying:


“I’m obviously sworn to secrecy about everything to do with Loki, but it feels great to be back. Everyone is trying to do it as safely as possible under the circumstances, and it feels good. I’m excited. It’s a lot of fun, and I can’t wait to see it.”


Loki is currently filming in Atlanta, like most other major Marvel projects these days, and as always is executive produced by studio chief Kevin Feige. Also executive producing are writer Michael Waldron (now also writing Doctor Strange And The Multiverse of Madness) plus director Kate Herron.


This will be Mbatha-Raw’s first foray into the MCU, but she’s no stranger to Disney. She starred in A Wrinkle In Time and 2017’s Beauty And The Beast. Mbatha-Raw is a regular on the Apple TV+ drama series The Morning Show, opposite Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell. She was also the female lead in last fall’s Motherless Brooklyn, starring Edward Norton.
