Ahead of its release this Wednesday, June 9th, Marvel Studios has released a new featurette featuring a few words from actor Owen Wilson. Along with a few new snippets, the one-minute featurette talks a bit about how Tom Hiddleston would help catch newer actors to the Marvel universe up to speed. Hiddleston literally did just that in a clip released on May 20th.
Owen Wilson plays Mobius who works at the Time Variance Authority (TVA), a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline. After Loki messed with the timeline, the TVA gives him a choice: face being erased from existence due to being a “time variant”, or help fix the timeline and stop a greater threat. Loki ends up trapped in his own crime thriller, traveling through time and altering human history
Watch the featurette below.
