Marvel Studios' Head Honcho, Kevin Fiege quite recently revealed one of the various plots that the makers of the Tom Hiddleston-frontline Loki series wanted to incorporate in the shows, but they eventually scrapped the same. As per an article on ScreenRant, which quoted Kevin Fiege on the topic, Loki was almost supposed to visit the 70s era and be seen at the helm of a Studio 54 project that would eventually be turned into a Broadway theatre. But, the idea was eventually scrapped. Read on to know more.

Kevin Fiege on the scrapped short film featuring Tom's Loki running a Studio 54:

The ScreenRant report in question quoted Kevin Fiege comparing the idea of the short film to a "low hanging fruit". He was also quoted reminiscing the times when the ideas for the short film going back almost a decade for Loki running a Studio 54 in the 70s were going around. The studio head even recalled looking at some of the concept arts for the same as well.  While concluding his statements regarding the same, and simultaneously expressing his gratitude towards Michael Waldron and Kate Herron, he was quoted saying that thanks to them, the story became "infinitely more interesting" than that.

Loki Episode 1, namely "Glorious Purpose", saw the return of Tom Hiddleston as Loki and the introduction of Owen Wilson as Agent Mobius M. Mobius. Loki Episode 1 was even seen playing around with the idea of DB cooper actually being Tom Hiddleston as Loki, as is evidenced by the moment in the episode which sees Wilson's Agent Mobius saying "I can't believe you were DB Cooper, man!". Details regarding future Loki episodes are awaited. The same will be shared with the readers as and when they are made available.
