The topic “Loki Boss Issues Warning About MCU’s Future After Season 2’s Massive Twist” has two versions, a written version, and a video version below the written version.
Marvel Studios’ executive has recently revealed hints about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The executive teased that the franchise will experience significant changes after the massive twist that was seen in the latest episode of Loki Season 2 on Disney+.
Loki Season 2 on Disney+ has only two episodes left, and the show is currently presenting some wild storylines within and outside of the TVA that could potentially impact the entire franchise in Phase 5 and beyond.
Warning: The following article contains major spoilers from Season 2, Episode 4 of Loki.
The biggest plot twist occurred in Episode 4 with the explosion of the Temporal Loom, causing the screen to turn black and killing off Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror Variant, Victor Timely. Fans are now left wondering what will happen to the show’s remaining characters.
The MCU's Future After Loki Season 2 Twist
In a recent interview with The Wrap, Kevin Wright, the executive producer of Loki Season 2, gave a foreboding warning about the future of the MCU after the major twist in Episode 4 – “war is coming”.
After the death of Victor Timely through spaghettification, Wright hinted that Miss Minutes and Ravonna Renslayer are still a major problem, and questioned whether they know what needs to be done to get the TVA back on the right track.
“Look with what happens at the end of [Episode 4], we don’t know where anybody is, or where they’re going, or if they’re alive. I think the thing that I would say is, if we were able to get back to that TVA, do Renslayer and Miss Minutes know what needs to be done to get time and reality back on track? Is Victor a key element to that? I mean, obviously they felt like he was for the TVA.”
Wright reiterated his warning that war is coming because of Timely absence. He noted that Loki regarded the TVA as the only thing preventing the collapse of reality amidst the impending war.
“I would suggest that maybe reality is in even graver danger now. Because even without Victor Timely, the warning still holds true: war is coming. The TVA, in Loki’s opinion, was the only thing that maybe stood between that war and reality crumbling. If somehow they are able to get reality back after episode four, I would say they still have a very serious problem to deal with. And they maybe have just lost a very valuable tool in Victor Timely, who was essential to getting that mission on track.”
In fact, the Multiversal War was going to be a major part of Loki Season 2. However, the showrunners decided to explore it only after earning it.
“In one version, we go full-on Multiversal War, but even as we were saying that, it felt completely wrong, jumping to something we haven’t earned yet.”
What's in Store for the MCU's Future?
In Loki Season 2, Episode 4, fans were given a glimpse into the extent of Loki and his team’s attempts to prevent the timeline from collapsing. The episode even revealed that Loki had pruned himself in Episode 1. However, it’s still unclear what the fate of the God of Mischief and the TVA’s workers will be in the last two episodes. What is certain, though, is that all roads lead to the massive Multiversal War, which centers around Kang and expands the Multiverse Saga even further.
The Multiverse will be further explored in Deadpool 3, which is set to release in 2024. The story will incorporate other universes, and major characters such as Deadpool, Wolverine, and others will be present alongside the MCU’s core universe.
The Multiverse Saga concludes with Avengers: Secret Wars, a major event from Marvel Comics where two different universes collide and engage in war. Loki Season 2 appears to be the beginning of greater things to come.
The first four episodes of Loki Season 2 are currently available for streaming on Disney+.
