Wednesdays are the new Fridays in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Loki” star Tom Hiddleston announced that his Disney Plus series is moving up its release date two days to Wednesday, June 9. The weekly episodes of “Loki” will release on Wednesdays instead of the usual Friday schedule that fellow Marvel shows “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” followed.

Breaking character from his fan-favorite Loki persona, Hiddleston told Marvel fans the news in a video.
“I’ve noticed that in these long superhero montages, Loki tends to get a bit left out, even though arguably he’s incredibly heroic himself — cunning, charming, I could go on. But maybe…why don’t I just prove it to you. Wednesdays are the new Fridays,” he said.
“Loki” follows everyone’s favorite God of Mischief after the time-traveling shenanigans he got up to in “Avengers: Endgame.” Trailers for the Disney Plus series show Loki being recruited by a mysterious organization called the Time Keepers to fix the flow of time and several alternate realities.
The show comes from head writer Michael Waldron and director Kate Herron. It also stars Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant.
As Hiddleston pokes fun at in his video, Marvel just released a long superhero montage on Monday, in which the titles for the “Black Panther” and “Captain Marvel” sequels were revealed and the first footage of “Eternals” was unveiled. Additionally, the 2023 release dates for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” were also announced.
