Following the Loki finale, Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief will reportedly make an appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for the Season 1 finale of Loki, “For All Time. Always.,” streaming now on Disney+.
The finale of Loki‘s first season helps set up many of the upcoming films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including a possible appearance by the God of Mischief in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Hiddleston is expected to return as Loki for the Doctor Strange sequel. While this will be exciting news for MCU fans, Marvel has not confirmed if Loki will play a role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
As its name indicates, Doctor Strange 2 will seemingly involve Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme dealing with the many divergent timelines created in “For All Time. Always.,” the season finale of Loki. After Sylvie killed He Who Remains, aka Jonathan Majors as a variant of Kang the Conqueror, the viewer witnesses the birth of hundreds of different timelines, all branching out from one another. He Who Remains foretold that his death would usher in someone far worse than him, opening the door for Kang variants to terrorize the MCU.
One would theorize that these events set up Kang to be the potential antagonist of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, but the villain is already confirmed for this role in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Curiously, Loki did drop an Easter egg for the third Ant-Man film, though it involved the return of Corey Stoll’s Yellowjacket. As for threats in Doctor Strange 2, theories range from Shuma Gorath to WandaVision’s Scarlet Witch.
If fans are interested in more multiversal madness, the next Marvel Studios project to watch out for is December’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. Doctor Strange will co-star next to Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, with Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina confirmed to return as Electro and Doctor Octopus, respectively. Rumors persist that Spider-Men Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield will also appear, along with Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock/Daredevil.
Loki’s adventures will continue on Disney+, with the mid-credits scene revealing Loki is coming back for a Season 2.
The entire first season of Loki is now available to stream on Disney+.
