The first crop of shows for the Disney+ streaming service were officially announced today, and one has sent Marvel fans into a bit of a tizzy.
During the company's quarterly earnings call, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that a Loki television series is in development, which would see Tom Hiddleston reprise his Marvel Cinematic Universe role. This marks just the first of several MCU-set television shows to officially become a reality at Disney+, with series around Scarlet Witch and Falcon and Winter Soldier reportedly in the works as well.
Considering the fervor that has surrounded Loki for essentially his entire MCU tenure - and the fate that he seemed to have in Avengers: Infinity War - there has been a pretty major reaction to the confirmation of him getting a television show. Here's a round-up of some of those responses.

I’m generally in the camp that I hope #Loki stream is post IW.
But counterpoint. In a prequel, we would finally get the Frigga we deserve.— Dippy (@DippyBlog) November 8, 2018
