Casting Call Hints At Loki’s Shenanigans On Disney+
While we wait for finished products, fans will key off most anything to get their daily buzz about upcoming projects. I find that informed speculation can really come from anywhere if there’s solid reporting involved. So, just like Loki, casting calls are almost always fun.
Casting Call Rumor
Case in point: A recent post by WeGotThis Covered.com.
Tom Hiddleston’s about to star in his own vehicle as the fan favorite God of Mischief in Disney Plus’ upcoming Loki TV show, but there’s ever-growing speculation that other versions of the shapeshifting trickster will appear in the series, as well. In the comics, for instance, Thor’s brother has also taken on the form of Lady Loki and Kid Loki.
Well, a new casting call may be hinting at the coming of the latter in the Loki show. Insider Charles Murphy has got hold of a couple of character breakdowns for an unknown Marvel Studios project, which he deduces must be Loki due to the uncertain shooting dates and the nature of the characters.
The two roles are both for child actors, one male the other female. Both must be British, too, and the description for the boy sounds a lot like it could match up with Kid Loki, who’s reportedly being positioned as the MCU’s new Loki, as Hiddleston is apparently on his way out.
The Source of the Speculation
A casting call went out this afternoon for a Marvel Studios project, filming dates yet to be determined, for actors/actresses to portray 10 year old British male and 10 year old British female respectively.
The descriptions for the roles are as follows:
Male, 10 years old, British, Open Ethnicity, smart and brave with a sharp wit and life experience beyond his years…RECURRING
Female, 10 years old, British, Caucasian, in tears over a frightening situation, she relies on her intelligence and resilience to find a way out.
While the project is unnamed, the New Orleans based casting agency who released the call is working out of an office located in Atlanta.
Loki Seems Pleased
That said, Tom Hiddleston looked and sounded pretty pleased about his getting his own show!
I mean, no hint of Hiddleston going anywhere, right?
