Loki remains one of Marvel Studios' best Disney+ TV shows, and that means expectations are incredibly high for the upcoming second season. Few official details have been revealed, though we know a new character will enter the fray when Oscar-winner Ke Huy Quan plays TVA tech expert OB.
"His job is basically every piece of tech, every computer, every thing that is running at the TVA," co-executive producer Kevin Wright tells Entertainment Weekly. "He either designed it, or he fixes it and keeps it running."
"I think Kevin Feige made a call maybe April 12, just to follow up and say, 'Please, please do this,'" Wright adds with a laugh. "Little did we know, Ke is apparently already a giant Marvel fan and was a big fan of Loki season 1."
As exciting as it is to see the beloved Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom star join the MCU, there's even more intrigue surrounding Jonathan Majors' role as Kang Variant, Victor Timely. The actor is expected to appear in at least half of the season and Wright is eager for fans to see what he brings to the table.
"Victor Timely is somebody that we are very, very excited about," he teases. "When you look at Kang, he has a very funny comic backstory. He has all these iterations. Timely was one that we've always wanted to do in Loki. And I think we're really excited about how that integrates into the season. It's a big part of the show."
As for what the show will look like as we head into the second batch of episodes, Wright assures fans everything they loved about Loki season 1 will be front and centre here. "We made a weird show [in season 1], and people responded to how weird it was," he explains. "So, we wanted to push it further."
