New “Loki” Season 2 Featurette Explores the God of Mischief’s Turn Towards Heroism
“I’m excited to be back at the TVA” says Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston, at the top of this new behind-the-scenes featurette for season two. The TVA is the Time Variance Authority, the bureaucracy that rules the many temporal threads of the multiverse and where Loki ended up after his many crimes. “The stakes are huge,” promises Sophia Di Martino, who plays Sylvie, one of Loki’s alter egos, his romantic interest, and a rising star in the MCU in her own right.
Executive producer Kevin R. Wright goes on to explain that Loki season 2 introduces “a whole new corner” to the MCU with new characters, one of whom is played by recent Oscar-winner Ke Huy Quan.
“I’ve been a fan of the Marvel universe for a long time,” Quan says, “I’m so grateful to be a part of this amazing series.”
Wright also promises that Loki will be dealing with the consequences from season one with his surprising partner in, well, not crime, exactly, more like a partner in trying to save the multiverse, Mobius (Owen Wilson). Mobius has been nudging the usually villainous Loki towards the angels of his better nature. Part of season 2, Wright says, is about Loki exploring his more heroic side.
“He’s found a new family,” Hiddleston says of his trickster God, “there’s a new capacity to make connection. You realize that those connections are all that matter in the end.”
Check out the new featurette below. Loki season two arrives on Disney+ on October 6.
Here’s the official synopsis from Disney+:
“Loki” Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of the shocking season finale when Loki finds himself in a battle for the soul of the Time Variance Authority. Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.
