after two spider-verse movies about people who travel to other dimensions and fail because they’re not supposed to be there, it’s interesting to see Loki (Tom Hiddleston) “passing the time” in LokiThe new trailer for season 2 of, both because of the visual similarities between the two phenomena and because it is something that few people understand. Somehow, the god of mischief jumps uncontrollably to random points in the timeline, and though neither Time Variation Authority agent Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) nor agent Ouroboros (Ke Huy Quan) can you explain why, everyone logs in. LokiThe new trailer points to Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) as the cause.
In addition to Loki’s time-jumping into TVA, something that’s not supposed to be possible, the trailer establishes how many of the organization’s other employees, such as Hunter B-15 (Wunmi Mosaku), Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), Casey (Eugene Cordero) and Miss Minutes (Tara Strong) will once again find themselves navigating through strange timelines where things don’t always line up as one would expect. What’s even more interesting though is the exchange Loki has with his alternate reality variant Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) about the two being gods and the brief glimpse the trailer features of one (or perhaps both) doing something Asgardian fancy. Magic.
Unsurprisingly, Majors’ Kang the Conqueror is heavily present (see: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty) and does not say much in the trailer, which does not make it clear what role he will have in Lokithe second season of. But since the villain formerly known as The One That Remains is destined to be the next Big Bad™ of the MCU, one imagines that his role in LokiSeason 2 of will be the subject of quite a bit of discussion when the show returns.
Loki Season 2 premieres on October 6.
