Wilson gained popularity among Marvel fans for his role in the Disney+ series Loki as Mobius M. Mobius, an ally to the titular character played by Tom Hiddleston. The two actors previously shared the screen in the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris. Mobius’ relationship with Loki at the beginning of the series is initially antagonistic before the two pull back the curtain on the dubious TVA, and Wilson becomes an unlikely friend to the god of mischief. The conclusion of Loki Season 1 saw the Sacred Timeline shatter into multiversal conflict, with Loki returning to a TVA where no one knows who he is and Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Ravonna Renslayer set off in search of the MCU’s next high-profile villain, Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors ). Filming on Loki Season 2 began in June at Pinewood Studios in London.

Marvel and movie fans alike can stream Secret Headquarters starting Aug. 5 on Paramount+.
