In a new video by Wired, Owen Wilson appeared to answer a few of the top googled questions involving him. At one point, the topic of Loki comes up and he shares the enjoyment he had working on the project and also confirms that production will start soon. It was hinted at the end of January that Marvel Studios was eyeing a production start in the summer even if Kate Herron‘s replacement still hasn’t been officially announced yet after she left the project shortly after the first season’s finale. Wilson doesn’t give away when exactly only that it’ll be “very soon.”
Yes, he is coming back to Loki and I think we’re going to start filming that very soon. Had a great time filming on Loki.
First off, I love how the actor says the word “Loki” during this interview and he seems to really have enjoyed his time on the production. He also gave one of the most heartfelt performances in the first season and we hopefully might get a lot more from the actor in the MCU’s future as Mobius M. Mobius. Secondly, it’s interesting that they are eyeing a production start so soon without any new director attached to the project. Perhaps they are waiting for the right time to announce, as most eyes are currently on the upcoming release of Moon Knight. For now, we’ll have to wait and see who will take over as Loki faces a new TVA with familiar faces and a new leader in charge.
