February 1st, 2020 by Marc Comments


It looks like Owen Wilson has joined the MCU’s Loki series set for Disney+ in a significant role.

No details are known at this time about who or what he’s playing but we know he’s joining return Tom Hiddleston and newcomer Sophia Di Martino – rumoured to be a female version of Loki in the series.

Wilson is brother to Luke Wilson who is co-star in the upcoming DC Universe/CW series Star Girl, reckon it’s awkward at meal time?

Anyway, Wilson is best known for roles in movies such as Cars, The Royal Tenenbaums, Zoolander and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

This is exciting news as Wilson is a fun actor and always worth watching so it’ll be fun to see what sort of role he fills in the MCU.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
