According to Variety, Gugu Mbatha-Raw has been cast in the upcoming Loki series at Disney Plus.
Details on Mbatha-Raw’s character are currently being kept under wraps but she is the latest addition to the cast, joining series lead Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, and Owen Wilson.
Mbatha-Raw recently appeared as a series regular on Season 1 of The Morning Show. She also had a voice role in the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, starred in the Emmy-winning Black Mirror episode San Junipero, and has starred in films like Motherless Brooklyn, Concussion, A Wrinkle in Time, The Cloverfield Paradox, and the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.
Disney unveiled a brief first look at Loki during a Super Bowl ad last week. The series is currently being targeted for a 2021 release though there’s no official logline for the series. Michael Waldron will be serving as writer and executive producer on the show with Kate Herron attached to direct all the episodes and executive produce.
