After a radio silence of more than a year, Disney and Marvel have finally treated us with a brief first look at the highly awaited Loki season two. The brand-new footage comes via a new Disney+ trailer that teases a number of different TV shows that will be hitting the streaming platform in the next year. While the teaser is extremely short, it does pack several shots of Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki and Owen Wilson’s Mobius, hinting at where things are headed for our characters.
Season one of Loki ended with an absolute cliffhanger, with Loki aka God of Mischief getting teleported to an alternate timeline where no one seems to recognize him and the TVA is headed by Jonathan Majors’ Kang who is one of many He Who Remains’ variants. The new trailer presents Tom Hiddleston’s Loki as “this handsome fellow,” who seems to be in an alternate TVA. The next shot shows Loki with Owen Wilson’s Mobius in some sort of a dark alley, when Mobius tells Loki, “a little over the top, don’t you think?” We beg to differ, however.
In the footage, we even see Hiddleston’s Loki alongside two other identical Lokis, which might either be his variants or projections. All of them are in suits and appear to have journeyed their way back into an older time period. There’s even a fresh shot of Sylvie, who’s sitting on a couch wearing headphones, with an uneasy expression on her face. Hope she’s okay.
The final imagery for Loki season two reveals Loki free-falling (hopefully, it’s not one of Doctor Strange’s tricks this time around) through what resembles the TVA headquarters. As of writing, Loki season two has no set release date, although, Marvel plans to air the new season sometime in mid-2023. Besides Hiddleston and Wilson, Sophia Di Martino will be reprising her role as Sylvie along with Eugene Cordero as Casey / Hunter K-5E and Tara Strong as Miss Minutes. The new season will also be welcoming some new faces such as Ke Huy Quan as Time Variance Authority archivist, Rafael Casal and Kate Dickie, both of whom have been cast for currently undisclosed roles.
Even though plot details surrounding the next season are kept under tight wraps, Loki season two will be picking things up from where it last ended, revealing Loki’s struggle as he tries to mend things and prune all the alternate timelines that were unleashed when Sylvie killed He Who Remains. However, we don’t think Loki would be able to put an end to Kang’s shenanigans for good since the villain has a ton more role to play in the MCU’s Phase 5. What will be interesting to see is how Loki will fit into the greater scheme of things and whether he will ever be able to escape the TVA.
