Disney/Marvel have released a new Loki season 2 featurette video that focuses on Ke Huy Quan’s fantastic new character.
The premiere of Loki season 2 is nearly upon us, and Disney has released a new video which focuses on one of the most exciting additions to the cast: Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All at Once).
From just ninety seconds of video, Ke Huy Quan’s enthusiasm is infectious, and I can’t wait to see what he brings to Loki season 2. The actor plays Time Variance Authority tech expert OB, a quirky character who is responsible for keeping every piece of tech at the TVA running smoothly.
Loki executive producer Kevin Wright has explained how quickly they had to move in order to sign the Oscar-winning actor up for the show. Marvel casting director Sarah Halley Finn caught an early screening of Everything Everywhere All at Once and suggested they make Quan an offer as soon as possible. “I think Kevin Feige made a call maybe April 12, just to follow up and say, ‘Please, please do this,’” Wright said. “Little did we know, Ke is apparently already a giant Marvel fan and was a big fan of Loki season 1.“
In addition to Ke Huy Quan, Loki season 2 also features Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Owen Wilson as Mobius, Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, Tara Strong as the voice of Miss Minutes, and more. Jonathan Majors will also be returning as Victor Timely, a variant of Kang the Conqueror who was introduced in the post-credit scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Majors is currently facing allegations of abuse, but Victor Timely will nonetheless play a major role in the new season.
Marvel could be considering a change of plans when it comes to Jonathan Major’s involvement in the franchise following Loki season 2, but nothing has been decided yet. Kang has been expected to be the big bad of The Multiverse Saga, which will conclude with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
The first season of Loki still stands as Marvel’s most-watched series on Disney+, so anticipation is high for the new season. Loki season 2 will debut on Disney+ on October 6th.
