Set photos from the UK set of the second season of Loki seemed to show that Blindspotting’s Rafael Casal had joined the series. Now, a trade report confirms that’s the case and points out that Casal will have a “major role” in the streamer.
The photos showed Casal on set with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Owen Wilson’s Mobius. Casal was in a TVA jumpsuit, meaning he is a prisoner of the Time Variance Authority. Based on the limited information in the set photos, he looks to be helping the two leads.
Disney had no comment on Casal’s casting and there’s no clear indication of who he might be playing. Season 2 of Loki looks to pick up right where Season 1 left off, with the titular character in a new timeline created when Sylvie killed He Who Remains. Look for Season 2 of Loki on Disney Plus in the Summer of 2023.
