Loki is one of the many highly anticipated upcoming shows that are set to come to Disney Plus very soon. While we haven’t heard much on the show aside from the occasional leak or rumor here and there, a new report that just came out points to a pretty big casting announcement, as it says Owen Wilson has joined the show in a major role!
The report comes from ComicBook.com, who writes:
The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s family is looking to add a well known actor with its upcoming Disney+ series Loki. Loki has added Owen Wilson to the cast in a major role, ComicBook.com has learned, although the character which Wilson will be playing is being kept under wraps.
While there aren’t any details on who the actor could be playing in the show, it’s pretty interesting, as he’s not exactly the actor you’d expect to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But then again, Christian Bale is in talks to join Thor: Love and Thunder, so maybe actors are starting to come around to the idea of joining the behemoth franchise.
It’s also important to note that this is just a rumor at this point, but an interesting one nonetheless. It’s also important to point out that the report from ComicBook states that Disney had no comment on the story. Variety also reported that representatives for Disney Plus didn’t immediately respond to their request for a comment. We’ll leave it to the fans to theorize on who the actor could potentially be playing, until an official announcement comes out.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted on this story and more upcoming news regarding the future of the MCU as we get it. Until then, be sure to tell us who you think Owen Wilson might be playing in Loki in the comments down below!
