On December 28, We Got This Covered (WGTC) reported that Marvel is "apparently eyeing: Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard" to play the part of "Kid Loki". Previously, their sources have been correct.
It all started when WGTC's sources reported that Marvel was looking to introduce "Kid Loki". Of course, Finn had already been making his name known recently in roles in popular movies and TV series such as Stranger Things, It Chapter Two (2019), Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2020), The Goldfinch (2019), The Turning (2020)... and several more.
Anyway, when fans heard that Finn was reportedly being considered for the role, they flooded Twitter with their thoughts.
Check out their tweets below:
I "Finn wolfhard as kid loki would be iconic."
I "Cast Finn Wolfhard in the role, that child has the exact right chaotic energy to do it justice, please and thank you."
I "If anyone is going to be kid Loki it’s Finn Wolfhard. ✌🏼"
However, others were vying for someone else to take the role of "Kid Loki". And he also happens to star in Stranger Things. Yep, fans are pushing Noah Schnapp's name for consideration.
I "after stranger things came out everybody started talking abt finn wolfhard being their kid loki [...] thats just fine and dandy but the real winner was right under your nose chief." (Attached is a GIF of Noah Schnapp as Will Byers)
I "if you're looking for someone to play kid loki, it's definitely noah schnapp. noah will be brilliant as kid loki. #Loki"
So, what are the chances of Finn Wolfhard being cast as 'Kid Loki' by Marvel?
WGTC had previously reported that Daniel Radcliffe was "being eyed for Moon Knight", and that there would be "Inhumans" in Ms. Marvel. Both of these reports had ended up being correct. This is the same source that WGTC is using to report that Marvel is eyeing Finn Wolfhard as "Kid Loki".
Of course, we won't know until it's been directly confirmed by Marvel, and there have been rumours in the past of another Stranger Things cast member being in the Marvel Universe (MCU).
Fans will remember when rumours about Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven) landing a role in the MCU circulated over the internet. Millie has since set the rumours straight, and it turned out that the rumour started from the head of Marvel Studio, Kevin Feige, when he casually mentioned that it would be "fun" to see Millie in the MCU.
Stranger Things season 4 is expected to start shooting early next year in January 2020.
