Jonathan Majors is officially set to return as Kang the Conqueror in season 2 of Loki. A new article covering his trial revealed exactly how many episodes of the Disney Plus series he’ll appear in.
Ever since Jonathan Majors’ arrest for assault and harassment back in March, fans have been wondering how Marvel and Disney would respond regarding his role as Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming season 2 of Loki on Disney Plus. The answer seems to be “not much,” as a new report suggests Majors is still set to appear in “about half” of the season’s episodes.
Despite Jonathan Majors still being set to appear in Loki season 2, it’s currently unclear if Disney will recast Kang the Conqueror for any projects beyond the Disney Plus series, likely waiting to see how the trial pans out before making a decision. Given the character’s integral role in the ongoing Multiverse Saga, it’ll be interesting to see which direction Disney takes.
Tom Hiddleston is spearheading the cast of Loki season two as the titular God of Mischief. The cast also includes Owen Wilson, Jonathan Majors, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Tara Strong, Eugene Cordero, Rafael Casal, Kate Dickie, Liz Carr, Ke Huy Quan and Neil Ellice.
Eric Martin replaced Michael Waldron as the head writer of Loki for its second season. Martin and Waldron also serve as executive producers on the series alongside Tom Hiddleston, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Benson and Moorhead directed the majority of the episodes for the upcoming season.
Loki season two is expected to premiere next Summer on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
