Ep 16: justsaying with Michael Waldron – Head Writer, Loki

Marvel Studios’ Loki, an original live-action series created exclusively for Disney+, features the mercurial God of Mischief as he steps out of his brother’s shadow. The series, described as a crime-thriller meets epic adventure, takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.

The starting point of the series is the moment in “Avengers: Endgame” when the 2012 Loki takes the Tesseract, and creates a divergent timeline of the future as it should be leading to the introduction of the Time Variance Authority (TVA).

Time travel, and its ramifications, hasn’t always been the easiest concept to get across. However, with greats such as the Back to the Future Trilogy and decades-spanning Doctor Who, Loki is in good company.

Creator and Head Writer Michael Waldron is no stranger to time travel with his work on Rick and Morty. We have a chat with him about where the show picks up, Loki’s journey and who he thinks might be the next breakout character in the MCU.

Loki is available for streaming on Disney+ with new episodes every Wednesday.
