‘Loki’ New Release Date-Wednesdays Are The New Fridays!

This is not a drill!! It was announced today by Loki himself (Tom Hiddleston) on the official Marvel youtube channel that the original Disney plus show Loki it will no longer be premiering on June 11 but on Wednesday, June 9!

The video titled ‘Announcement’ has Tom Hiddleston talk about how his character Loki is near involved in the bid hero sequences that are usually in the begging on a Marvel movie or show. He remarks about how he’s cunning and charming, which, I mean, duh! And he proudly announces that Wednesdays are the new Fridays, indicating that will it be released earlier  than any other Marvel show so far. If that’s not a Norse God flex, I don’t know what is!

Obviously it’s not a huge difference, like releasing it a month early or anything but it’s still really awesome news. Marvel just wants us to continue to let ‘WandaVision’ and ‘Captain America and The Winter Solider’ marinate a bit more but it’s cool. I’m chill. Like super chill about a month long Marvel drought.

As fans of Marvel we are used to being told that something was being pushed back instead of forward especially in the last year and some months thanks to Ms. Rona like ‘Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings’, and ‘Black Widow’ but news about ‘Loki’ being moved up is a welcomed surprise for sure.

Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, will be based on the novel of the same name by Judy Blume, a coming of age story about a sixth-grade girl (Margaret) who has grown up without a religious affiliation, due to her parents’ interfaith marriage. The book follows Margaret’s one-sided conversations with God in which she discusses not only the changes she’s going through, but her search for a religion that feels right.
