Loki Star reveals surprise spoiler for Season 2 on Disney+
Loki was one of the biggest projects released from Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it opened some big doors for The Multiverse Saga. The second season of the series is well underway and has recently thrown a major Game of Thrones star in a role believed to be the main antagonist. We’ve already seen some cool set photos showing the cast in the past looking for Sylvie, so it’s safe to assume they’ll meet the goddess of mischief early in the season. During the final in Loki Season 1, it is revealed that all the TVA agents are actually variants brainwashed into believing they are not, and when this fact is revealed to Ravenna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) she escapes and heads out on her own. In a new interview, Mbatha-Raw hypes up the character’s role in the second season with a massive spoiler.
“IN LokiRavonna is a powerful presence,” Mbatha-Raw told ET Online about the second season, “selfishly, Renslayer is coming out of TVA, which I’m really excited about.”
The series opened some pretty big doors for phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after its impressive season finale. The season finale broke the multiverse and introduced us to Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror. But it seems that the head writer of the first season, Michael Waldron, believes that the second season of the series can top the first. During an interview with The Playlist, the author reveals why.
“Well, I mean, look, what Kate did with Kasra Farahani our production designer, Christine Wada, our costume designer,” Waldron said. “And the whole crew and establishing the look of the show, I mean, what can you say other than it’s absolutely spectacular. It doesn’t look like TV. It couldn’t look more premium. So what they did was amazing.”
“Benson and Morehead, I know those guys. They’re great. They’re brilliant in their own right. You know, I think they’re going to come in and they’re going to do what everybody on this project does, which is raise, you know? Then they’ll take what was good about it and adapt it with their own wonderful instincts and everything and hopefully make something even better.” The author added.
Marvel Studios has already started production Loki Season 2 and we already know it will have a completely different team. The series will replace director Kate Herron with Moon Knight directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson. Herron has previously not commented on her departure from the series, but now it seems that the director is ready to discuss why she moved on from Loki. In a previous interview, the director revealed exactly why she decided not to stay on board for season two of the project.
“I was on the show for about three years total. I just felt like I poured everything into it,” Herron told Variety. “It’s almost like a bonfire story that every filmmaker kind of brings their view and their perspective. I just felt like I gave so much to this. I thought, ‘You know what, I feel like this was my effort for Loki. ” I felt to have someone new and with fresh eyes – that for me is what will make a good season.”
