“It was something I thought could be really fun and interesting to play. One of the most important things was that Tom Hiddleston took his time – we called it the “Loki school” – the Loki lectures, [spending] a few days with me, going through stuff like that,” Wilson said.

Wilson joked that “if I had had more teachers like that in school I might have done better because he was very engaging and very patient.”

Wilson added that there was “an encyclopedia of things to follow the timeline,” joking that he didn’t have to read the encyclopedia, “but I listened to the podcast.”

Wilson added that he has worked on “buddy comedies” in the past, and his relationship with the title character has a similar dynamic.

“I’ve worked on buddy cop comedies before and worked on that kind of dynamic. This isn’t a comedy, but certainly some of the scenes where Tom and I are playing some sort of chess match, they looked somewhat familiar to me,” he added.

Hiddleston added that the vastly different characters are “like chalk and cheese, but in a really fun way.”
