Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Loki, the series at Disney+ sophomore season, has a major update. Firstly, the second season is coming, that’s for sure. But plot-wise, some things aren’t going to change —at least that’s what Marvel Studios’ telling us. The developer team no longer has the head writer for the debut season. That’s right! Loki Season 2 head writer was replaced.

If you’re unfamiliar with Loki’s premise, it goes something like this. Very briefly: An alternate variant of Loki is managed to bring to the mystical Time Variance Authority after stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame. They offer Loki the choice to be deleted from existence as a “time variation” or assist in the timeline correction and prevent a greater threat. Loki becomes engrossed in his own time-traveling crime thriller.

What Is Mike Waldron’s Trajectory?

Michael Waldron always has a lot on his plate. Firstly, Waldron has established himself as the go-to voice for the Marvel Studios cosmos. Secondly, he has a remarkable role in the popular adult cartoon Rick and Morty. Then, as if that’s not enough, he wrote Starz’s series Heels. We can say for sure and without any hint of a doubt that the man likes to work and write scripts. And he does so with a lot of internal consistency. Let’s break that down in the case of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In 2021, he became the head writer for the debut season of Loki. In that series, he developed a series of concepts: Like multiple universes and variations. And to add to that motion, he grew that into the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel. Mike Waldron’s work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is evident. But that’s about to change.

We recently learned from Mike Waldron’s addresses to the press that he would not continue spearheading Loki’s head writing team. Moreover, Mike confirmed that his job is now under Eric Martin’s tutelage. What does it mean for Loki, series-wise? Absolutely nothing! At least according to them. Will they live up to their promise? That’s up for grabs.

Still, Waldron is confident that the writing team behind Loki will continue the creative spirit of the interdimensional aspects developed by him amongst the several MCU productions that are all over the place. And that’s a good thing. I can’t imagine myself reviewing the shower of criticism if there are any plot inconsistencies after Waldron leaves. But who knows!

Meet Eric Martin: The New Loki Season 2 Head Writer!

Eric Martin will be the new head writer for the sophomore season of Tom Hiddleston’s character Loki. Before taking the gig, he worked as a production assistant for Rick and Morty in 2014. Then, he worked in Ties That Bind as a writer’s assistant in 2015. He worked as a staff writer with Michael Waldron for eight episodes with him on Heels, and he also widely participated in the scriptwriting for the debut season of Loki. Now, he’s tasked with taking everything he was learning from Mike Waldron and taking upon his own view for the series! I wish him good luck. He’ll probably do a good job, as he’s worked closely with Waldron for years.
