Meet Owen Wilson’s Agent Mobius in New “Loki” Clip
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded to serial form on Disney+, the cast of characters has expanded, too, and some terrific actors have entered the fray. Some of the talented folks to join the Marvel fold include the great Kathryn Hahn as the powerful witch Agatha in WandaVision, a brief but compelling cameo for Julia Louis-Dreyfus as the HYDRA agent Valentina Allegra de Fontaine The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and now Owen Wilson as Agent Mobius M. Mobius in Loki. Wilson will have a meaty role, as Hahn did in WandaVision, as a new clip makes clear.
Wilson is a welcome addition to the MCU. He’s got the comedic chops to more than hold his own onscreen with anyone, and his Agent Mobius seems like a great foil to Tom Hiddleston’s mischievous antihero, Loki. Agent Mobius works for the Time Variance Authority (TVA), and Loki is now under his control—at least, for the time being—thanks to Loki snatching of the Tesseract during Avengers: Endgame. The TVA makes sure that time as we know it runs properly, and as we learned in a previous trailer, when Loki snatched the Tesseract, he “broke reality” according to Agent Mobius. In the new clip, Agent Mobius tries to get Loki to understand what the TVA does, but the mouthy Asgardian isn’t impressed.
Joining Hiddleston and Wilson are Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Sophia DiMartino, and Richard E. Grant. Kate Herron directed all of Loki‘s episodes, with Michael Waldron serving as head writer.
Loki premieres on Disney+ on June 9. Check out the clip below:
