With director Kate Herron leaving and being replaced with directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead. Eric Martin should be a major asset to the Loki series as he’s know for his work on Rick and Morty as well as Community. Which is right up Loki’s alley.
Michael Waldron just finished with Doctor Strange and The Multiverse Of Madness and with his overall deal at Disney, you know he’s a busy man.
Especially with writing Kevin Feige’s super secret Star Wars movie, it only makes sense he would be unable to write for Loki season 2.
However, it’s not a total loss as Eric Martin did write episodes for Loki season 1 that have been highly praised.
Loki Season 2 Loses Michael Waldron As Head Writer, But Don’t Worry!
Speaking to DigitalSpy, Michael Waldron had this to say leaving as writer on Loki season 2:
Well, I mean, look, everything leads into everything, right? We’ve hired a couple of great directors. [Justin] Benson and [Aaron] Moorhead [Loki season two directors] are brilliant. And Eric Martin has taken over as head writer for season 2. So the creative team is fantastic. As Tom [Hiddleston, who plays Loki] once said, there’s plenty more mischief to come.
It’s seems that Michael Waldron is pleased with this new team taking over Loki season 2 and that’s always a good sign. Waldron then went on to talk about Loki’s impact on Spider-Man: No Way Home and in turn Doctor Strange and the Multiverse Of Madness:
There’s always a method to the madness. Even in the Multiverse. And for the Marvel fans who know that Loki and Sylvie did something at the end of that series that allowed all of this to be possible. He Who Remains is gone and that allowed a spell to go wrong in Spider-Man: No Way Home which leads to the entire Multiverse going quite mad in this.
Speaking of the Doctor Strange sequel, it’s projected to bring in (insert stats here) and it will be interesting to see what Marvel does in the aftermath of this multiverse epic. One thing is for sure is Michael Waldron’s impacts will ripple through out phase 4 and beyond.
Now we just need him to start working on Kevin Feige’s super secret Star Wars movie.
What do you think of Michael Waldron leaving the Loki series? Do you think it was too soon?
