To know about “Multiversal War Plan Was Cut From This MCU Phase 5 Project by Marvel” you can choose between reading the article or watching the video version.
The future Multiversal War in the MCU was taken out of a new project from Phase 5.
The Multiversal War was first mentioned in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in Loki Season 1 Episode 6 when Jonathan Majors’ He Who Remains informed Loki and Sylvie that he had put an end to the conflict as he put the TVA into place.
Although it has been put on hold since then, the idea was once again hinted at when Majors made a comeback as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania when he attempted to leave the Quantum Realm.
Multiversal War Taken Out of Phase 5 Entry
During a discussion about Season 2 of Loki between Den of Geek and the executive producer Kevin Wright, it was revealed that there had been early plans for a “full-on Multiversal War” to occur.
The original plan was for Season 2 of Loki to come out before Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which would have radically altered both projects by flipping the order of the MCU timeline.
Wright noted that entering a conflict like that in its entirety “felt completely wrong,” and that this particular narrative didn’t feel earned given that it had been cut from Loki Season 2:
“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.”
Although the Multiverse Saga will continue to progress in that area over the next few years, Loki has so far been one of the Phase 5 projects in the MCU that is most closely tied to the Multiverse.
When Will the Multiversal War Be Shown?
Although the Multiversal War will undoubtedly be hinted at in other places as well, it has become evident that Loki is one of the most significant narrative components for the Multiverse Saga as a whole.
Deadpool 3, which will reportedly reveal the other worlds that lie beneath Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, is one project with connections to this new narrative.
Additionally, there is a chance that the Fantastic Four will explore this idea. Naturally, it will all come to a head in The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, the following two Avengers films, when they destroy the barriers between worlds.
However, with much more Multiversal intrigue to come in this season of Loki, it is still too early to say where this battle stands or when it will actually start.
The second season of Loki’s new episodes debuts on Thursdays at 6 p.m. PST on Disney+.
