Loki just smashed all records for a Marvel series on Disney +. The show, which features Thor’s enemy brother, had a better launch than WandaVision or Falcon and the Winter Soldier. The success of the first episode confirms the growing popularity of Marvel productions among Disney + subscribers.
Disney+ uploaded the first episode of Loki, its third series taking place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production follows the adventures of a character beloved by fans of the franchise within the multiverse. Carried by a fit Tom Hiddleston, Loki quickly received a shower of enthusiastic reviews.

Of course, Loki’s success comes as no surprise. Since his appearance in the Thor trilogy initiated in 2011, the god of mischief has established himself as one of the fan-favorite characters of the MCU. This popularity is notably due to the excellent acting performance of Tom Hiddleston, which brings nuance and complexity to Odin’s adopted son.
Also according to Samba TV, the figures recorded by Loki confirm the growing popularity of the Marvel Studios series. “Obviously, the growing number of households who go online on the first day proves that the Marvel Disney + series are gaining momentum,” says Samba TV.
