‘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.

Revealed on their Twitter account, this comes just days after the finale of the show, which ends with Sam Wilson officially taking the mantle of Captain America. Reminiscent of Sam Wilson’s Captain America uniform from 2014’s All-New Captain America written by Rick Remender and illustrated by Stuart Immonen, many fans have embraced the new Sentinel of Liberty:

Yet some still prefer the original model:

Disney+ May Include Sam Rami Spider-Man Trilogy

Thanks to a new licensing deal between Disney and Sony, Sam Rami’s Spider-Man trilogy may be included in Disney Plus’ Marvel library. Announced this Wednesday, the agreement between the two companies means that Disney will gain access to a significant portion of Sony’s films, and will be permitted to air them on their many channels, including ABC, Freeform, National Geographic and, of course, the Disney Channel. Not only that, but Disney is also allowed to publish Sony movies on their streaming services Hulu and Disney+.

Disney didn’t confirm which of its services or channels would be getting specific programming, other than to note that some Sony library movies would be hitting Hulu in June. Although, considering how the Fox X-Men franchise was included under the MCU banner on Disney+, I think it’s safe to assume that Toby McGuire will be gracing our screens soon.

Although, the Sam Rami trilogy won’t be the only Sony Spider-Man property now within Disney’s grasp. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse, Venom and the Amazing Spider-Man duology starring Andrew Garfield will also be included, as well as presumably the upcoming Morbius and Venom: Let There Be Carnage. 

Similar to the deal Sony had with Netflix earlier this month, Disney will only be permitted to exercise their new legal rights over the Sony properties in the American market, despite the global consumption of their streaming services. Sadly, this means that those of you outside of the United States will be unable to watch the Sony Spider-Man movies with their Disney+ subscriptions.

With arrangements both with Netflix and Disney, Sony is expected to rake in an estimated three billion dollars in movie licensing over the lifetime of the deals. According to Keith Le Goy, President of Worldwide Networks & Distribution for Sony Pictures Television:

“This groundbreaking agreement reconfirms the unique and enduring value of our movies to film lovers and the platforms and networks that serve them. We are thrilled to team up with Disney on delivering our titles to their viewers and subscribers. This agreement cements a key piece of our film distribution strategy, which is to maximize the value of each of our films, by making them available to consumers across all windows with a wide range of key partners.”
