Owen Wilson revealed that his knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe came from study sessions with Loki co-star Tom Hiddleston.
Owen Wilson spoke about his experience working with actor Tom Hiddleston on the upcoming Marvel series Loki and how Hiddleston taught him the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Wilson was promoting his newest film Bliss on The Jess Cagle Show when host Jess Cagle asked him how he prepared to play Mobius in the upcoming Disney+ show. Wilson said that Hiddleston walked him through the MCU lore while they were filming in a process Wilson refers to as “the Loki lectures.” “[Tom Hiddleston], for a couple days walked me through everything and the whole lore and showing me clips from the other movies and how it all fed into the story,” Wilson recalled. “So it was really kind of Tom telling me about it, telling me about his character.”
The MCU’s history will be especially prominent in the upcoming Loki series as the titular character travels through multiple timelines, possibly altering past events. Wilson plays Mobius M. Mobius, a character who works for the Time Variance Authority (TVA) and, in the comics, is an office worker responsible for managing timelines in the multiverse. It is unknown exactly what type of time hijinks Loki will find himself in, but a political button from the trailer as well as a coffee mug wrap gift allude to the political satire comic series Vote Loki, which was released to coincide with the 2016 presidential election.
Meanwhile, Wilson also promoted his recently released sci-fi drama film Bliss. The film is about Wilson’s character, Greg, discovering that his life is a Matrix-like computer simulation. He meets Isabel, played by Salma Hayek, who can control the simulation and provide Greg with moments of lucidity of life outside the simulation. Written and directed by Mike Cahill, the film was released Feb. 5 on Amazon Prime Video.
Loki stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Sasha Lane, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Richard E. Grant. The series arrives on Disney+ in May 2021.
