LOKI Writer Breaks Down That Big Villain Reveal; Shares New BTS Photo And Confirms Season 2 HASN'T Been Shot

Loki writer and producer Eric Martin has broken down that big villain reveal in the finale, sharing a new behind-the-scenes photo of [SPOILER] and a big update on how work on season two is progressing.

The entire creative team behind Loki is amazing. However, if you're not following writer and producer Eric Martin on Twitter, you're missing out, especially as he's been breaking down each episode.

In his live commentary of "For All Time. Always.", Martin shared heaps of details about Kang the Conqueror's live-action debut, starting by saying that "Jonathan Majors absolutely exceeded expectations. Everything he did just had so much gravity to it. It was thrilling to watch him work. [It's] all talking, so we knew we needed someone with intense Charisma. [He] blew us all away."

As for the portrayal of He Who Remains, Martin explained that the villain "had to be odd, but bold and brash. Almost like a young tech CEO. As much a genius as they are [a] charlatan." 

"The biggest risk was having this entire epic lead to a single conversation," he said of the finale. "But we just didn't want to do the expected big battle at the end. And, again, our whole show is about conversations, so it felt like it was in the DNA. We didn't want to end with a typical 'big bad' either. He Who Remains is villainous, but the Loki and Sylvie [struggles] are internal."

Martin also shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Majors, noting that "Jonathan is so physical too. He was running all around the set (and all around it between takes)."

Earlier today, speculation started running rampant that Marvel Studios might have somehow already shot the second season of Loki. It's a nice thought (just imagine it dropping on Disney+ completely out of the blue) but, as expected, that's not the case. Answering a question on Twitter during his live commentary, Martin confirmed that they've only just started working on the story.

Without a traditional television schedule to stick to, we're not expecting more Loki for at least a couple of years, and certainly not before 2023 after Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania is released.
