The Disney+ series Loki will tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Kevin Feige has revealed.
In a profile on Disney head Bob Iger from Bloomberg Businessweek, Feige shared the new tidbit about Loki. While discussing the MCU’s expansion to Disney+, Feige said the shows included on the streamer will tie directly to the films, something that has already been confirmed. He explained that Loki will specifically tie into Multiverse of Madness, saying, “I’m not sure we’ve actually acknowledged that before. But it does.”
We’ve previously speculated on how WandaVision may set up Scarlet Witch’s role in The Multiverse of Madness, but Loki’s involvement comes as a surprise. We know little about the plot of the Loki series right now, other than Feige’s earlier confirmation the series will focus on the 2012 version of Loki who escapes with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. A single Loki teaser image hints time travel will play a big role in the story. Will Loki’s use of the Tesseract somehow open up the MCU to the wider Marvel multiverse?
Marvel’s Loki will see Tom Hiddleston reprise his role as Loki one more. The series is directed by Kate Herron and written by Michael Waldron, with Herron promising, “We’re taking Loki to an entirely new part of the MCU.” The series slated to run six episodes and will debut on Disney+ in spring 2021.
