Marvel Studios Taps Moon Knight Directors for Loki Season 2

Ahead of the Oscar Isaac-led series’ debut next month, Moon Knight directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have found their next project with Marvel Studios as they officially signed on to helm multiple episodes of Loki Season 2. According to Deadline, Eric Martin has also been enlisted to write all six episodes, with Michael Waldron returning as an executive producer.

The directing duo recently directed two episodes of Netflix’s mystery horror series Archive 81. They are best known for working on horror films such as V/H/S: Viral, Spring, The Endless, and Synchronic, so it will be interesting to see what direction they take the Disney+ series in its second season.

The second season will once again be led by Marvel Cinematic Universe vet Tom Hiddleston, who will also be serving as an executive producer. Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Owen Wilson have also recently confirmed that will be reprising their respective roles as Ravonna Renslayer and Mobius.

Set after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Loki Season 1 featured the return of the God of Mischief as he gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority due to the damage he had done with the timeline. The first installment also starred Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie, and Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15 along with guest appearances from Sasha Lane, Cailey Fleming, Richard E. Grant, DeObia Oparei, Jack Veal, and Jaime Alexander.
