Gugu Mbatha-Raw is Marvel's newest star!

Marvel officially announced about their upcoming Disney+ series Loki. For the unversed, the series' storyline is all the more exciting because in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos ended up killing Loki in front of his brother.

Coming off Apple's The Morning Show, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is going into some other streaming play.

The series sees Tom Hiddleston return as Loki, which will follow an alternate version of the character after he escaped with the Tesseract following the Avengers' "Time Heist" in "Avengers: Endgame".

Details about her role are reportedly being kept under wraps, though it is possibly a female lead.
