With just over two months until its debut, Disney+ has released another trailer and poster for season two of Loki.
The new trailer for the second season of Loki shows off a lot of what made the first so successful, as it stands as a display for the humor, special effects and tone that helped make the first the most-watched Marvel show yet. It also showcases new cast member Ke Huy Quan – playing an archivist with the Time Variance Authority – who is clearly choosing promising projects after his Oscar win for Everything Everywhere All At Once. Also on the cast front, perhaps wisely, the trailer for season two of Loki is far from being a promo for Jonathan Majors, who is playing Kang variant Victor Timely. Majors of course has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons as of late. Despite a remarkably strong start to 2023 with Sundance hit Magazine Dreams, a turn in Creed III and playing main baddie Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quauntumania, allegations of abuse have plagued the months that followed, putting Marvel in a difficult spot on deciding how to proceed with the actor, as Kang is poised to be the MCU’s next Thanos.
Loki so far has been a hit with both critics and audiences. In addition to its strong reviews and viewer reception, the first season snagged a slew of Creative Arts Emmy nominations as well as earning attention from MTV and the People’s Choice Awards to major guilds like SAG and the WGA.
Season two of Loki, which “thrusts the infamous God of Mischief into a new set of adventures with the TVA”, comes to Disney+ on October 6th.
Erin Martin, who wrote two episodes of the first season, has penned all six episodes of season two’s. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the duo behind sci-fi horror flick Synchronic, directing the majority of the episodes.
