Kate Herron said decision is in Kevin Feige’s hands
Loki’s director Kate Herron still doesn’t know if she will return to MCU after the sixth episode of the series hits Disney+. In an interview with The Playlist, the filmmaker said that the show was initially planned to have only one season, but she doesn’t know what Kevin Feige has planned for the future.
“For me, I think it’s just this one season. You never know what goes on in Kevin Feige’s head, but as far as I know, this is Loki’s story and that’s what I came for,” said Herron.
The filmmaker also revealed some of the inspirations behind the series. Claiming to want to write a “sci-fi love letter,” Herron said he “stolen” elements of Blade Runner and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and other important works in the genre. “The fonts on the computers are kind of inspired by the fonts in Alien – The Eighth Passenger, the temporal doors of the series are from Dune”, he revealed.
Even if Loki doesn’t win a second season, the director knows which hero she’d like to work with if she had the chance to stay in the franchise. “I’m a big fan of Spider-Man. It would be a dream [to direct a movie of his]. I think Tom Holland is fantastic and I really like this version of the character”.
In addition to Tom Hiddleston, Loki’s cast also includes Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino and Academy Award-nominated actor Richard E. Grant, among other talents. The series has already debuted on Disney+ and will feature new episodes directly on the platform, always on Wednesdays, throughout the first season.
