Loki is an upcoming Marvel series on Disney+ Hotstar Premium. It has Tom Hiddleston in the titular role along with Owen Wilson making his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut as Mobius M. Mobius, an analyst at the Time Variance Authority (TVA). Their banter in the trailer has been loved by fans and now Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige thinks their pairing could become the most popular one. 

Kevin Feige thinks Tom Hiddleston's Loki and Owen Wilson's Mobius will become Marvel's most popular pairing 

In a recent interview with TV Insider, Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson were joined by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, as they talked about the Loki series. They were discussing the dynamics between Loki and Mobius. Hiddleston stated that Wilson's character holds the "highest academic honours" in the studies of God of Mischief. Wilson mentioned that it is a little bit of a chess match to gain Loki’s trust, but in that shared endeavour, there’s an interesting dynamic between the two. 

The Rushmore star compared the bond between Loki and Mobius to Nick Nolte getting Eddie Murphy out of jail in the 1982 movie 48 Hrs. Marvel's Kevin Feige too expressed his opinion on the duo. He asserted that they will be one of the "most popular pairings" they have ever had at Marvel.
