Some potentially interesting information has come to light regarding the ‘Loki’ series releasing on the Disney+ streaming service. One of our sources has revealed that ‘Loki’ is the series holding the production company “Limbo Productions I LLC.” Just to be sure, I have conducted research into the LLCs filed by Disney recently in order to verify this information.
On February 7th, 2019, Disney filed for the creation of four LLCs, namely Freelance Restorations LLC, Pandemic Productions LLC, Static Productions LLC, and Limbo Productions I LLC. Those corporations were created for the production of ‘Shang-Chi,’ ‘The Falcon & the Winter Soldier,’ ‘WandaVision,’ and, according to our source, ‘Loki,’ respectively.
‘Shang-Chi’ was the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe film at the time to be in development, as all other previously announced MCU films already had production LLCs filed prior to the announcement of ‘Shang-Chi’ on December 3, 2018. Meanwhile, the three aforementioned series were the first Disney+ series announced, back in late 2018. Thus, it makes perfect sense that all four projects would be filed on the same day.
Following the filing of those four LLCs, Disney also filed Finger Guns Productions LLC on April 23rd, which is believed to be for ‘Hawkeye’ based on the timing. On April 10th, Variety reported a Hawkeye Disney series, starring Jeremy Renner, was in the works. Next was Circle Q Productions LLC on July 23rd, which is clearly a reference to ‘Ms. Marvel.’ And then there’s Pym Particles Productions III LLC for ‘Ant-Man 3,’ which was on August 12th.
Meanwhile, every other project mentioned at San Diego Comic-Con previously had a production LLC filed. For example, ‘The Eternals’ was filed under Olympia Productions US LLC on September 13, 2018. Also, ‘Black Panther 2’ was filed under Kimoyo Productions II LLC on August 24, 2018.
Therefore, it is logical that ‘Loki,’ being the only project not holding an obvious corporation, is indeed holding Limbo Productions I LLC.
However, what makes Limbo Productions I LLC unique among those LLCs filed that day, and the information from our source prompted such confusion, is that it is unprecedented for a Marvel Studios production LLC to be filed with I, indicating a part one. In fact, not even 2012’s ‘The Avengers’ was filed with an I (that was filed as Assembled Productions LLC). Either this is an error on Disney’s part, or ‘Loki’ might actually be the first MCU Disney+ series to have multiple seasons.
Conversely, this means ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,’ ‘WandaVision,’ ‘Hawkeye,’ and ‘Ms. Marvel’ are indeed all limited series and are not planned for multiple seasons, as of now. This could, of course, change, and this is by no means confirmation that ‘Loki’ will have multiple seasons, as this is a development that has never occurred before for any Marvel Studios project. However, the possibility is undeniable.
‘Loki’ was recently confirmed to tie into ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ by Kevin Feige, possibly pointing towards this new Loki’s arrival to the main timeline of the MCU. A potential second season could perhaps deal with one of many Loki storylines from the comics, such as Kid Loki, a member of the Young Avengers.
Moreover, Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as the titular character, marking his seventh appearance in the role. Michael Waldron (‘Rick and Morty’) will serve as writer and showrunner, with Kate Herron (‘Sex Education’) directing all six episodes. Filming will begin at the top of 2020, possibly starting on January 28th in Atlanta.
The series will premiere Spring 2021 on Disney+, after the release of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.’
