The multiverse will play a large part in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and several projects under the Phase 4 slate are expected to dive into the intriguing concept. WandaVision already teased the alternate reality fixture based on the reveals from its first trailer while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is poised to expand the lore even more.
Meanwhile, Loki is another MCU property that will take a deep dive into the multiverse, especially after the grand setup from 2019's Avengers: Endgame. The series will follow an alternate version of Loki through multiple time periods and potentially alternate Earths, as evidenced by the confirmed involvement of the Time Variance Authority.
Tom Hiddleston will be back to play the iconic villain (or anti-hero) once again, and he will be joined by a star-studded cast which includes the likes of Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Richard E. Grant. The latter was reported joining the Disney+ series back in March, but the actor wasn't vocal about his involvement in the show. Now, Grant took to social media to share an interesting tidbit about Loki, seemingly confirming his inclusion to the upcoming Disney+ series.
In a tweet, Richard E. Grant confirmed his involvement in Loki while also expressing his excitement to finally work with Tom Hiddleston.
WHAT THIS MEANS
It remains to be seen what role will Grant play in the upcoming MCU project, but it's reassuring to see the actor being proud of his inclusion in the show. Grant's latest remarks indicate that he could potentially be featured in a scene with Hiddleston, especially after expressing delight in terms of finally working with the latter.
Based on the previous report from Variety, it was revealed that Grant will only appear in a "single episode" for the series, and it's a safe bet that his character could prove to be vital to the MCU in general. Adding a versatile actor like Grant is a significant undertaking, and this could mean that his character could easily jump to the movies. Given that Grant played villainous roles in past films like Logan and The Rise of Skywalker, there's a chance that he will play a similar role in Loki and other future MCU projects.
Whatever the case, seeing Grant and Hiddleston in a scene together is already a win-win situation for many fans, and it will be interesting to see how it all plays out in Loki.
