dead line It has been reported that Rafael Casal has joined the cast of the second season of Loki and that he will have an important role, although no details about his character have been released. Casal is known for his work in the television series blindspotting and the 2018 film of the same name that inspired it.
Photos from the set of the second season revealed a few days ago that there was a new member of the cast, showing a man next to Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson, who is presumably Casal, who we see in a prison outfit from TVA , so it may be a variant that Loki and Mobius could have asked for help. This fact would also confirm the importance of the character, although not how much.
