So far, Marvel’s Disney + the shows were snacks. Fun to keep fans in the cinematic universe between their trips to the cinema. These shows are usually also ways to connect free ends and let loved ones go on side assignments. In WandaVision, Wanda Maximoff had to imagine life with Vision after his death in Avengers: Endless War. Falcon and winter soldier talks about Sam Wilson taking over America’s captain’s cloak after Steve Rogers gave him a shield Endgame. Loki it was supposed to show what happened when the God of mischief flew along with Tesseract Endgame. No – instead, he turned all those loose ends into a frayed knot.
But wait, it jumps too far ahead. First, the good news: During the middle credit scene on Wednesday Loki season finale, Marvel announced that, yes, “Loki will be back in season 2.” To this day, this is unprecedented. Disney + has just rebuild any other Marvel series. It also leaves a lot of open and compelling questions, including, but not limited to, which Loki or Lokis they return in the second season – and / or in other MCU movies. Considering that the news of the restoration was delivered via a message written in the Time Variance Authority (TVA) file of Loki Laufeyson, Hiddleston’s Loki, it is assumed that he will return. The fates of others, including Sylvie and The Sophia Di Martino favorite alligator of the internet, remains to be seen. Loki just blew the timeline of Marvel’s multiverse.
That, presumably, is all part of Kevin Feige’s master plan. I like LokiTimekeepers, Marvel Honcho ensures that the MCU is constantly ticking and ensures that all movies and shows work together. But as the final on Wednesday showed, sometimes even a puppeteer needs to be replaced. (Spoiler warning: Details from Loki the finale of the season follows.) Towards the end of the episode, Sylvia has a somewhat shocking duel with Loki, and then kills the one who stays (Lovecraft Country(Jonathan Majors), the alleged TVA organizer she has been searching for all season – and a person known to comic book fans as Kang the Conqueror. I like Se7enis John Doe, The one who stays manipulated Sylvia not to trust Loki and stabbed him with a knife, thus freeing up more time zones in which there is a much more evil, Kang-like war leader, ready to wreak havoc.
My colleague Adam Rogers likes to warn that “this will end in tears. “All these time-time multiverse things can only be concluded with the ‘cataclysmic momentum of the epic of epic violence.’ He is right, of course. (I have to say this; Adam surpasses me. Not to do anything drastic to stop me from speaking my thoughts … I’m fine … :: blink :: :: blink: 🙂 For me, multiverses are a shot. Yes, they cause nerds to twist their metacarp over which it is really or exactly, but I trust Dr. Strange. Remember the whole case where he gave Thanos the Time Stone because he said it was the only chance the Avengers had? It turned out (mostly) okay, and it’s my instinct to go with the guy who looked at each timeline and picked this one. If Feige says “multiverse,” sure why?
Also, multiverses allow a a lot more side quests and unusual character explorations Loki played like a fiddle. Technically, WandaVision it happened on the main MCU timeline, but if Wanda hadn’t used her witchcraft to create an alternate world, fans wouldn’t have had hours more time with Vision – and they would never have even met the now beloved Agatha Harkness. Loki he gave us another Loki – a few dozen of them, in fact, revealing all the wondrous strange forms of the character. Wrapped in it is Marvel that exists this timeline: Earth 2021. The opening of the multiverse allows characters to be substitutes for who they were in the comics – they can be replaced by gender or other races or sexualities. Yes, all this overturning of scripts can cause chaos and will leave more torn parts than a bad permanent one, but what I’m saying is: Don’t say “multiverse war” like it’s bad. Sounds like gasoline.
