Meanwhile, Hiddleston confirmed some time ago that he would be starring in the upcoming series.

Reprising his role from the Marvel films, Hiddleston shared a clip of him attempting – and failing to land – a stunt flip on the Loki set earlier this week (January 27). “Prep is going really well. #Loki,” he joked in the caption.

The video has been viewed more than 3.3 million times since it was uploaded, with fans joining in on ribbing his efforts. “Man hit the bed like a grapefruit yes,” commented one Instagram user.

Loki is set to premiere on Disney+ in spring 2021.
