It's been over a year since Tom Hiddleston's Loki wrapped up its first season but the God of Mischief certainly left an impression. It didn't take long until Marvel Studios gave the green light for Loki season 2.
Early on in development, Hiddleston confirmed that the whole cast would be returning. This was seemingly confirmed after Sophia Di Martino's Sylvie and Owen Wilson's Mobius were both spotted on set. Fan favorite character Miss Minutes is also expected to appear as is Jonathon Majors' Kang.
These won't be the only characters showing up for Loki's second season with new cast members and new footage revealed at Marvel's D23 panel.
New Loki Season 2 Footage Revealed
The Marvel Studios panel at D23 showed some exclusive footage of Loki season 2 to attendees.
According to descriptions of the footage via Popverse, Loki is seen being ripped through time, saying “I’ve seen terrible, awful things”.
Hiddleston's character also sees a wall covered in Kang decorations before saying the line "war is on its way." The main cast is seen in space suits and tuxedos.
Matt Ramos revealed that Loki Season 2 shows the character "trying to warn everyone about the coming war with Kang".
Insider correspondent, Kirsten Acuna, added the footage had a "creepy vibe" and that Loki is seen unveiling Kang's face behind a wall in the TVA.
Further information about that scene was revealed by New Rockstars' Erik Voss, who said:
"There's also a shot where Loki chisels away a mural of the Time Keepers to reveal a wall of giant golden Kang variant faces."
SlashFilm also revealed a few other tidbits from the trailer too, including a conversation between Loki and Mobius being as philosophical as ever:
Loki: "I don't want you to think I'm the bad guy in all this."
Mobius: "Who says you were?"
Loki obviously has a snarky answer for this though, listing off several people who would consider him a villain, including Ms. Minutes, a number of Avengers, and even Mobius himself.
It was also revealed at the panel that Indiana Jones and Everything Everywhere All At Once star Ke Huy Quan will be joining the cast of Loki for season 2.
Kang the Conquerer Arrives
Jonathon Majors is really making his presence felt in the MCU. Not only is his character confirmed to appear in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but he’s also set to be one of the main villains in the upcoming Avengers 5, titled The Kang Dynasty.
It seems Kang’s villainous arc will be the main plot point in Loki season 2. In the season 1 finale of the show, Hiddleston’s character tried to stop Sylvie from killing He Who Remains, who warned the duo that his death will result in the release of his more evil variants. It seems the ramifications of this are a big part of the new season with Loki attempting to rectify Sylvie’s actions by warning others of the coming threat.
How Ke Huy Quan’s new character fits into all this is unknown but there’s no doubt that after starring in Everything Everywhere All At Once, the actor is well equipped for his new multiversal adventure.
Loki season 2 is set for release on Disney+ in Summer 2023.
