First Full Loki Teaser Pits the God of Mischief Against Owen Wilson
Yes, Owen Wilson costars in Loki. And perhaps the only appropriate word is “Wow!” Who exactly he’s playing isn’t clear yet, but we now know for sure he works for the TVA, or Time Variance Authority. This organization manifests as an infinite bureaucracy which monitors the multiverse. In comics, they’ve had run-ins with She-Hulk and Kang the Conqueror, both of whom are coming to the MCU shortly. And Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D‘s Chronicoms seemed loosely based on the TVA’s Chronomonitors. We all know the multiverse will feature in a big way in the MCU’s Phase IV, and clearly Tom Hiddleston’s Loki will stake out his own corner of it.
Take a look at the newly revealed teaser:
There’s a lot to take in there. Loki initially seems to land on Earth, but that’s far from the only world visited. Previously announced cast members Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sasha Lane, and Sophia DiMartino show up, but it’s still not clear who they might be playing. The 2016 Vote Loki miniseries gets clearly referenced at the end. Hey, he certainly lies enough to find success in politics. And while Heimdall died in mainline MCU continuity, Loki’s threat that him and Thor should prepare may apply to multiverse versions too.
