4 Comments

Loki is one of several Marvel shows being made for the streaming service Disney+, with Tom Hiddleston set to reprise his MCU role as Thor's villainous half-brother. It has now been reported that Owen Wilson has joined the cast.

As reported first by Comicbook.com, and confirmed by Variety, Wilson will play a "major role" in the show. While no further details are available, Wilson is best known for his comedic roles in movies such as The Wedding Crashers, Zoolander, The Royal Tenenbaums, and the Night at the Museum movies. This will be his first appearance in a superhero movie or show.

Wilson is only the third cast member to be reported since Loki was first announced in 2018. In November last year, Yesterday star Sophia Di Martino was cast in the series in an unknown role. Loki's showrunner is Kate Herron (Sex Education), and Rick and Morty's Michael Waldron is one of the writers. The series is scheduled to hit Disney+ in Spring 2021, and Hiddelston previously revealed that it would span "six hours."

Other Disney+ Marvel shows on the way include WandaVision, She-Hulk, and Falcon and Winter Soldier. WandaVision will focus on Vision and Wanda Maximoff, and in a recent interview, star Paul Bettany described the series as "f***ing bonkers." Both WandaVision and Falcon and Winter Soldier are expected to hit Disney+ this year.

As for the MCU on the big screen, Black Widow releases in May. Check out the latest trailer, and our guide to everything we know so far about Black Widow.
