GUGU Mbatha-Raw is joining the cast of Disney+ Loki series.

Needless to say, details of the character she will be playing remain firmly under wraps. The actress has previously appeared in Civil War drama Free State of Jones, as well as Apple’s The Morning Show and Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time.

Loki finds Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the God of Mischief and boasts a support cast that also includes Owen Wilson and Sophia Di Martino.

Although Hiddleston’s Loki died in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, a version of the character briefly appeared in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame thanks to time travel.

It is that version of the character that the Disney+ show will follow as the series charts the trickster god’s journeys throughout key moments in human history.

Rick & Morty writer Michael Waldron is penning the pilot for Loki, and will act as show creator as well as executive producing the series.

Loki is one of multiple shows Marvel Studios is producing for Disney+, including the keenly-anticipated Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye and What If?
