Marvel's never had as many projects in development as it does now. Between film and television, there are upwards of a dozen productions at various stages of development, and those are only the ones the public knows about. One of those in active in development — in production, actually — is the Tom Hiddleston-starring Loki. Hiddleston joins the likes of Richard E. Grant, Owen Wilson, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw in a series for Disney+ that's shaping up to be a time-traveling adventure.
Though we don't who someone like Grant is playing exactly, rumors have circulated that fans would see more than one incarnation of the God of Mischief through the show from Kid Loki to Lady Loki. As such, one eager Marvel fan artist imagined what Grant could look like as an older version of the Asgardian and if we're being frank, it's a pretty good look.

@richard.e.grant as Old Loki🐍 _____ @starwarsmovies Richard E. Grant recently confirmed his casting in @marvelstudios @disneyplus series Loki. But who he'll play in the series has yet to be revealed. Who could this amazing actor be playing? The main thing we know about the show is that Loki will be jumping alot through time which got me thinking🤔...Richard E. Grant very much resembles an older @twhiddleston so COULD he be playing an Old version of Loki? So i had to make a render to see how that would look, and I have to say if this is true? Its perfect casting. What do you think? #yayornay👍👎 #richardegrant #tomhiddleston #loki #disneyplus #marvelstudios #lokiedit #fanart #marvel #comics #bepositive #alwaysapex
The work comes from Instagrammer @ApexForm, who posits the actor will play an older version of Loki, either in the current timeline or from an alternate reality. Though we know little about the series, Grant himself confirmed he was in the production last month after it picked up after COVID-related delays.
"@twhiddleston and I have talked about working together for some years and finally get to do so in LOKI," Grant tweeted Friday morning. There had previously been speculation Grant would be playing Kang the Conqueror, a theory quickly quashed after Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors was cast in the role earlier this month.
Loki has yet to set a release date.
