Owen Wilson has joined the cast of "Loki," a Marvel streaming series for Disney+.
Although details of his role are being kept under wraps, Wilson will be starring alongside Tom Hiddleston as the titular character, reprising his role from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with 2011's "Thor."
The 51-year-old actor is best known for his work in Wes Anderson films such as "The Royal Tenenbaums," "The Darjeeling Limited," and "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," and broad comedies like "Zoolander" and "Wedding Crashers." He was also nominated for an Oscar alongside Anderson for their "The Royal Tenenbaums" screenplay in 2002.

The demi-god was last seen teleporting away using the Tesseract when the Avengers went back in time to visit 2012 New York City in "Avengers: Endgame."
Production has already begun with the series expected to drop in the beginning of 2021.
