(NEW YORK) — It’s already well known that everyone who joins a Marvel Studios project is subjected to security that would impress the CIA, and Owen Wilson is no exception. However, he tells ABC Audio it’s no secret he’s excited about being a part of the anticipated Disney+ series, Loki.
While Tom Hiddleston’s titular god of mischief died at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, the time-spanning Avengers: Endgame gave him an out: while Iron Man, Ant-Man and Captain America travel back to 2014 to steal the Tesseract following the Battle of New York, there’s a scuffle, and a captured Loki steals the multiverse MacGuffin and vanishes into time.
The trailer for the series, which debuts on Disney+ in May, shows that Loki ends up in the custody of the Time Variance Authority, an agency that polices violations of the time/space continuum, where he’s interrogated by Mobius M. Mobius, an agent played by Wilson.
“I don’t like to talk,” Hiddleston’s character says. “But you do like to lie — which you just did…” Wilson responds with a laugh, “‘Cause we both know you LOVE to talk.”
Given the security around the six-episode project, Wilson wasn’t giving away any spoilers. While promoting his new Amazon Prime drama Bliss, he would only tease, with a smile, “I think it’s gonna be pretty cool.”
Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
