Siblings who live together are not uncommon, but celebrity siblings who work in essentially competing franchises are a different matter. Luke Wilson, who stars as Pat Dugan in DC’s Stargirl, recently opened up about what it was like living with older brother Owen Wilson while he was filming Marvel's Loki as a character by the name of Mobius.
We shared a house… for a little over a month, and it was actually really fun. We hadn’t done that in a long time, though we see each other all the time. To be on location in the same town, living in the same house, was really fun. I don’t know if you’ve ever lived with anybody in the Marvel universe but… odd people! Very, very odd people.
The brothers were working on their separate superhero shows at the same time so it’s nice knowing that the two of them were able to live together and see how the other lives. Working on a DC project while your brother works on Marvel could theoretically start any argument at a family reunion, but it sounds like the brothers had a good time with it while it lasted. Luke Wilson praised his brother and Loki’s success, knowing how much Owen Wilson enjoyed working on the Disney+ series:
It was funny for me, working for DC and doing a superhero show, while Owen was playing Mobius on Loki… Like me, he had not worked on a superhero project, but I know he had a great time. He enjoyed working with Tom Hiddleston, and it seems like that show turned out great, too.
While Loki finished airing its first season earlier this month, Stargirl hasn’t even premiered yet for its second season, as the first episode of Season 2 airs in August. Though that didn’t stop The CW from giving it an early renewal back in May for a third season. The superhero series originally debuted on streaming platform DC Universe, with episodes airing on The CW the following day. The network then renewed Stargirl, making it one of the multiple shows to be moved off DC Universe and onto a different platform.
It would be interesting to get Owen Wilson’s side of the story, considering his brother said that Marvel people are “odd.” But it’s great seeing that the two of them are as close as ever, despite being in competing franchises. Who knows? Maybe the two can make an appearance in the other’s show. One can dream.
