Moon Knight director.
“I think the biggest thing about Loki is just that it’s actually a lot like Moon Knight, where there’s just no reason to do it if it’s not going to be something new and fresh,” said Moorhead during an interview with Comic Book. “It’s funny is, it does feel like Marvel would be willing to walk away unless it actually is something that they felt the unexpected. Like from Moon Knight and especially because Moon Knight is a character where nobody knows almost anything about him, yet. Soon to be changed, right?”
“And so our gloves are off and we get to kind of do whatever we want,” continued Moorhead. “Everybody at Marvel and ourselves gets really excited when we are presented with the unexpected. We also of course, hope that people watching feel the same way and we’re gonna bring all that to Loki.”

“We know that the thing that appeals to us about Loki and Moon Knight specifically,” added Benson. “It’s just among the MCU, they feel like outsiders. And there’s something about that that we really relate with.”
Loki is the first Disney+ MCU live-action series to get a second season. Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, and Sophia Di Martino are all likely to return. However, Marvel hasn’t formally announced the cast members for season 2.
