During the event he confirmed a second Star Wars series that will follow Cassian Andor, Diego Luna‘s character in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and a Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston. More on the report, below.

Tom Hiddleston As Loki In The Avengers

We’ve always known Star Wars and Marvel would be a big part of Disney’s streaming service, which will be called Disney Play. But it’s not just going to be a bunch of existing movies, there’s going to be original content as well. We know that multiple original Star Wars series are currently being developed, including one with Iron Man director Jon Favreau involved. We also know that these series will not be cheap to produce.

Now we’re starting to see what’s in the works on the Marvel side of things. It’s being reported that Disney is developing multiple Marvel series revolving around various characters such as Loki, Scarlet Witch, and other characters who haven’t received their own standalone movies.

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Super Bowl Champ” Henchman21 and “Kitten Bowl Champ“ Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of February 5, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

I hope you all enjoyed your Super Bowl Sundays, with your pizzas, and your chicken wings, and your yelling obscenities at a screen in the hopes of getting the attention of people who can’t hear you. Of course, the best part of the game was the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which looks sweeeeeet. But enough about that, let’s talk about comics. This week’s picks are dominated by a couple of must-own hardcovers, four exciting new series from Marvel, and a few other odds and ends. So, let’s skip past the coin toss, avoid the boring post-game reactions, and run right into The GoD List!

Tom Hiddleston As Loki San Diego Comic-Con 2013

Tom Hiddleston has developed quite the fan following for his work portraying top Marvel villain Loki in the Thor movies and The Avengers, but it may come as a surprise to you to discover that Hiddleston did not initially go out for the role of Loki. He actually first auditioned for the lead role of Thor, which ultimately went to Chris Hemsworth.

With the Blu-ray for Thor sequel Thor: The Dark World coming next month, a peek at one of the special features has surfaced online. The peek comes from a Thor Screen Test in which a blond long-haired Hiddleston is seen auditioning for the lead role as the God Of Thunder, even wielding the mighty hammer Mjölnir. You can see what Loki looks like as his brother Thor here below!

Medieval Aquaman Armor #2

Prince Armory is a company that has mainly worked on a select few projects for various private clients making the best hand crafted armor, costumes, and leather products. Soon they will go more public with their works at Renaissance Festival and various conventions. And after seeing their work, you will understand why.

What’s exciting about the Armory is that they have a geek streak in them, and that’s awesome. They’ve made a bunch of medieval armor remakes of popular comic book characters like Batman, Joker, Loki, Aquaman, and a partial Spider-Man.

Be sure to click on over to the other side now to check out images of the various armors.

Thor: The Dark World Header

Thor: The Dark World was one of the most fun times to be had at the theater last year and another not-so-rare case of a sequel surpassing the original on nearly every level. The movie will be hitting Blu-ray next month, so obviously it’s high time that a list of the bonus features we can expect be released. These supplements were recently rated by the British Board of Film Classification and the Blu-ray is set to include the usual audio commentaries, deleted and extended scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a first look at the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and a gag reel.

Plus, since this is a Marvel Studios release, it looks as if we’ll be getting the latest Marvel One-Shot short film, which is titled All Hail the King and runs a reported 16 minutes.

Loki Petition Banner

People love Loki. This is not something many villains can say, but Loki, who appears in Thor, The Avengers, and upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World, is not your average villain. This is largely thanks to actor Tom Hiddleston, who portrays the Asgardian god in all three movies.

Hiddleston is so popular as Loki, in fact, that a petition has been created to try and get Marvel to make a stand alone Loki movie. Petitions are made all the time, of course, and rarely given a second look. But so far this particular petition has rapidly obtained support from all around the globe, quickly rising to almost 19,000 signatures as of the writing of this post, and has been covered by numerous news outlets.
