Marvel Studios follows a strict policy towards its actors for not giving out spoilers so as not to ruin the overall excitement of the fans and the work put in by the cast and crew. Many actors have been scolded for knowingly or unknowingly giving out spoilers ahead of the film’s or series’ release. Owen Wilson debuted in MCU as Mobius M Mobius in the Loki series. He has admitted to being scolded by Marvel “multiple times”. So he is trying to keep himself in check by not giving out spoilers for the next season of Loki.

Recently in an interview, Wilson was asked about Loki season 2 in hopes of getting some spoilers but he gave a simple answer saying:

“Yeah, we’re doing that. Yeah, Tom (Hiddleston) is great, Doing Loki, and we’re filming that now in London.”

He was also asked about his famous jet ski scene, and whether we will be able to see Mobius riding one or not in Loki season 2. He nearly caught himself saying too much. He said that he is self-conscious as Marvel is so “kind of uptight”.

“Well, I do think that… you know, we’ll see what happens with this one, I immediately get kind of self-conscious because they’re so kind of uptight.”

The director of Secret Headquarters, Rel Schulman also asked Wilson if he had ever been scolded by Marvel, and he confirmed that it had already happened “multiple times”.

Back in August 2021, Owen Wilson shared that when he let it slip that he had a moustache for portraying Mobius in Loki, he received a text saying ‘Strike 1’ and speculated that it might have been Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige using a burner phone.

Owen Wilson is not the only one though. Many actors of Marvel are already in line and in this list, Tom Holland comes first. He has now made his persona as the spoiler king.

Mark Ruffalo also accidentally revealed the end of Avengers: Infinity War on a national news program. He started fumbling after that and ended up saying that now he is going to get scolded.

Thor: Love and Thunder star Tessa Thompson, once expressed her fear about spoiling anything from the upcoming Phase 4 film saying that she is nervous and doesn’t want to be a house of spoilers.

“I’m so nervous now to talk about anything related to those movies because the fandom is so real and I have said I will not be a house for spoilers. So I can’t say much, I think everything that we need to know has already been said, which is that she is the king of New Asgard, so she’s navigating her diplomatic duties, she’s reunited with her friend Thor and we’ve got the gang back together.”

Rosario Dawson also gave out spoilers regarding the next Punisher series and later apologized saying that she heard it from a fan so the information is not official yet.

“I hadn’t heard that announcement, but I found out yesterday that the Punisher was happening again. So, I feel like it’s my second chance because that’s the only one of the shows I wasn’t in and I love Jon Bernthal. So, lets all make it happen collectively, guys”. 

In the same way, the Eternals actor Patton Oswalt let it slip that a sequel to Marvel Studios’ Eternals is in the works.

“They have announced there’s going to be an Eternals sequel, Chloe Zhao is going to direct it. So hopefully there will be more adventures of Starfox and Pip.”

Secret Invasion actor Kingsley Ben-Adir revealed that Marvel is now training its actors “not to talk” about the project, indicating that the protocols are now levelling up.

Let’s not forget the precaution that Marvel took ahead of the worldwide premiere of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It disabled replies and comments to prevent fans from spoiling the movie, on its social media accounts.
