Everybody's favourite Norse God of Mischief is set to appear in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. According to a new report, Tom Hiddleston's Loki will join Benedict Cumberbatch's Master of the Mystic Arts as he hops between realities with Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch.
To talk about this in much more detail is going to involve me getting into what went down during the Loki season finale earlier this week. If you don't want any spoilers, consider this your warning to get out now. Seriously, I'm going full spoiler below this video. You've been warned. But also watch the video please, because we have targets to hit.
Okay, here we go. The final episode of Loki saw Loki and Sylvie come face-to-face with He Who Remains (aka a Variant of classic Marvel villain Kang the Conqueror).
He Who Remains explains to the pair that he created the TVA and has been maintaining the one - and only - MCU timeline in an effort to prevent the creation of a new multiverse which, he claims, would result in new Kang Variants that are far less nice and almost certain to wage a multiversal war that will end all of reality as we know it. Yikes.
Sylvie, having understandably had enough of the TVA's bullshit, chooses to kill He Who Remains, which in turn leads to the creation of a new multiverse. Infinite new realities start to branch off from the Marvel timeline we all know and love, kicking off a new chapter for the MCU. It's clear that this is going to attract the attention of Doctor Strange. And given Loki's involvement in the creation of this multiverse of madness, it's no surprise that he'll pop up in Strange's upcoming movie.
While this has yet to be officially confirmed by Marvel, the usually on-the-money Hollywood Reporter has said Hiddleston is very much on board for the Doctor Strange sequel. Exactly how involved he'll be remains to be seen, but I'd imagine the good doctor will want a word with him for the part he played in screwing up the "sacred timeline".
Of course the creation of a brand-new multiverse also pretty much confirms the rumours that Spider-Man: No Way Home will see Tom Holland's Spidey meet Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Phase 4 is going to be weird, and I can't wait.
