Owen Wilson is an iconic actor who has blessed our screens for years, and now, he’s heading to the smaller screen to take on our favorite God of Mischief. According to, Wilson’s role in the Disney+ Loki series is going to be kept under wraps, but apparently it is a key role, and honestly, that’s fine. I’m more interested in the idea of Owen Wilson being in a superhero show.

The same can also be said about Twitter. In the lead up to the news,‘s Brandon Davis got everyone excited by posting a series of tweets about something happening with Marvel, and then when it was revealed that it was Owen Wilson’s casting, everyone went from “we’re getting footage of WandaVision or Loki” to everyone pulling out their favorite “wow” jokes.

And then obviously the jokes on Twitter were very much the same.

Now, please enjoy my series of instances where Owen Wilson can say “Wow” in the Loki series. You’re welcome.

When Loki does something using his magic for the first time:

If Owen Wilson gets to go to Asgard:

The hammer comes flying past and Thor appears, catching it and throwing Owen Wilson off-guard:

The world is the Loki show’s oyster. Don’t let us down, give us the Owen Wilson content we need to give us hope.

Thinking about it, though, was this an Easter Egg in Avengers: Endgame?

In all honesty, I guess I would consider myself part of the “Owen Wilson hive.” He’s an incredible actor, despite his now meme-like level of fame, and having him in a Marvel property is definitely going to bring a new level of humor to it. Loki is certainly going to be interesting, and I can’t wait to see who Owen Wilson is going to be playing. Can we get Luke Wilson and Liam Hemsworth in something and then it’s just crews of brothers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
