British-South African actress, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is set to star as the female lead alongside Tom Hiddleston in the upcoming Marvel series.

According to Deadline, the British-South African actress will join the cast of Lokithe Marvel series which is set to air on Disney+.

Mbatha-Raw jumps straight into the Marvel series not long after her role in Apple TV‘s The Morning Show starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and several other high-profile actors.

Mbatha-Raw had a spectacular year in 2019. Not only was she a part of the casts of several successful drama series, she also landed roles in significant titles including Misbehaviora dramedy about the Miss World beauty pageant in the 70s, and Seacolea historical film about pioneering Jamaican nurse Mary Seacole.

Marvel’s Loki will focus on the Asgardian trickster who has played a major role in the evolution of Marvel’s so-called “movieverse”. While the details of Mbatha-Raw’s character have not yet been revealed, save that she’ll be a female lead, the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, and Sophia Di Martino are all set to be a part of the star-studded cast.

Filming of Loki is currently underway and the series is set to debut on Disney+ in 2021.
