Marvel Studios is stopping production on its new series Loki over coronavirus concerns. The series was scheduled to launch on Disney+ next year.
Loki isn’t the only film to halt production over coronavirus fears. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was one of the first to delay production last week while filming in Prague. Now other Marvel shows are following suit including Loki and Wandavision, another series set for Disney Plus.
In addition, Disney has also suspended filming on all of its live-action films, including Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings.
Other Disney films which have paused production and pre-production include The Last Duel, The Little Mermaid, Home Alone, Nightmare Alley, Peter Pan & Wendy and Shrunk.
In the new Marvel Studios series, Tom Hiddleston returns as the mercurial Loki, the Asgardian god of mischief and everyone’s favorite Marvel villain, in stories that take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Other actors who have been confirmed by Marvel/Disney to star in Loki include Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Cailey Fleming and Richard E Grant.
Loki currently has a target release date of early 2021 on Disney+. It is unknown if that will be delayed yet.
