Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige dropped some news at Disney’s upfronts that is sure to please MCU fans. The anticipated second season of Loki will hit Disney+ on October 6th, while Hawkeye spinoff Echo will drop on November 29th.
Loki‘s second season will run for six total episodes, with new ones dropping each week until November 10th, release date of The Marvels. Coincidence? Probably not. Tom Hiddleston is obviously back as the god of mischief, along with Sophia Di Martino as fan-favorite Sylvie, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, Tara strong as Miss Minutes, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer. Jonathan Majors is also back as Kang, although the trailer Feige showed at the presentation excluded him, and he wasn’t mentioned at all as part of the cast. Oof.
New additions to the show include Rafael Casal, Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan, and Kate Dickie.
Echo will see the return of Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez, who returns home to Oklahoma to reconnect with her Native American roots and come to terms with her past. Also in the cast are Charlie Cox, Vincent D’Onofrio, Chaske Spencer, Tantoo Cardinal, Devery Jacobs, Cody Lightning, Graham Greene, and Zahn McClarnon.
All of the Echo episodes will be made available at once on Disney+, but it’s unclear the episode count.
