Owen Wilson is a Superhero in First Poster for Secret Headquarters

Not all dads wear business suits in the first poster for the upcoming Paramount+ superhero outing, Secret Headquarters. Loki star Owen Wilson is all superhero-suited up for the promo, with the actor sporting a suit that sits somewhere between Iron Man and RoboCop.

Released to social media by Discussing Film, the poster for Secret Headquarters puts the bulky black-and-silver super-suit at its center and cuts Owen Wilson’s face in half. No doubt the disappointment of many. Still, we can make out a typical pouty look on the actor’s face, as well as the hints of his familiar, wonderfully feathered hair.

Secret Headquarters will introduce Owen Wilson as his very own superhero with the official synopsis for the movie reading; “While hanging out after school, Charlie and his friends discover the headquarters of the world’s most powerful superhero hidden beneath his home. When villains attack, they must team up to defend the headquarters and save the world.”

Williams (Good Boys), Momona Tamada (The Baby-Sitters Club), Abby James Witherspoon (Hot Pursuit), Kezii Curtis (Charm City Kings), and Michael Peña (Ant-Man).

Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, who has co-written Secret Headquarters with Christopher L. Yost and Josh Koenigsberg, and based on a story by Yost, the project is being produced by Paramount Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films who have described the superhero outing as a “heartwarming and action-packed family superhero film.”

“We have seen tremendous success with our high-quality kids and family content, and are excited to add this special superhero movie to our growing slate of Paramount+ original films,” Chief programming officer of Paramount Streaming Tanya Giles said of the Owen Wilson-fronted superhero project. “Secret Headquarters is the perfect action-packed summer film for the whole family, making it a perfect fit for Paramount+ and our mountain of entertainment geared toward the whole household.”

Secret Headquarters is set to be released in the United States on August 5, 2022, on Paramount+.

Secret Headquarters is not the only superhero-based project involving Owen Wilson set for release, with the actor due to reprise the role of the fan-favorite TVA agent Mobius M. Mobius in Loki Season 2. Mobius and his mustache will once again team up with Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief as the pair further explore the multiversal madness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

While details of Loki Season 2 are largely unknown at present, it has been suggested that the story could delve into Mobius’ backstory.

“So I think for us, we had spoken about, I think there were a few drafts of the script where you did see like a family or you did see a life, but I think we all kind of decided we don’t know what it is yet,” Loki Season 1 director Kate Herron explained. “And I think that’s exciting, right? Because it gives more road to travel with him. And I think it’s more painful when he is going to be deleted, him saying, ‘What if I had a family’ Because, maybe he did or maybe he didn’t, I don’t know where the writers will take his character.”

Loki Season 2 has not yet been given a release date but will debut on Disney+.
