Depart a Remark

Grant, and Belle and The Morning Present star Gugu Mbatha-Uncooked becoming a member of Tom Hiddleston in his solo Marvel journey on Disney+.

Maybe Gugu Mbatha-Uncooked’s character will be part of him or apprehend him, nevertheless it’s arduous to inform with so little data.
The collection was within the midst of filming when Hollywood-wide shutdowns halted manufacturing. It is unclear when Loki will choose again up with filming and if the manufacturing delay will push again the movie’s premiere date.
