Who stars in Loki?
Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki in Marvel’s Thor trilogy and Avengers movies, has reprised his role as the titular character in this Disney+ original.
He will be joined on screen by Zoolander favourite Owen Wilson, Black Mirror star Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Vera regular Wunmi Mosaku.
There are also supporting roles for Sophia Di Martino, Richard E Grant, Sasha Lane and Eugene Cordero.
Speaking to Empire about the character, Tom said: “Loki is the quintessential shapeshifter.
“His mercurial nature is that you don’t know whether, across the MCU, he’s a hero or a villain or an anti-hero.
“You don’t know whether you can trust him. He literally and physically changes shape into an Asgardian guard, or into Captain America repeatedly.
“Thor talks about how he could change into a snake.”
