Loki season 2 is formally occurring. In a post-credits scene connected to Loki season 1 episode 6, Disney+ and Marvel Studios revealed that Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief will return for a sophomore run — although it stopped wanting telling us when. As a stamp got here down on a Time Variance Authority file for Loki Laufeyson, it merely learn: “Loki will return in season 2”. Thanks to earlier commerce reviews we all know that Loki season 2 is ready to start manufacturing in early 2022, so an optimistic guesstimate would put Loki season 2 premiere round late 2022. But it may simply slip into 2023 given how manufacturing goes, and Marvel’s different Disney+ commitments.
Before we’re handled to Loki season 2 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar, Marvel Studios will roll out the animated non-canonical Marvel’s What If…? (August 11) with many Marvel Cinematic Universe stars returning, in addition to Hawkeye (late 2021) with Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld, Ms. Marvel (late 2021) with Iman Vellani as Marvel’s first Muslim Pakistani-American superhero, She-Hulk (2022) with Mark Ruffalo and Tatiana Maslany, Moon Knight (2022) starring Oscar Isaac, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (late 2022) from James Gunn, and probably extra tasks that have not been introduced. And that is simply on the TV aspect of issues. MCU’s Phase Four is packed.
Spoilers forward for Loki season 1 finale.
In reality, the occasions of Loki season 1 will tie instantly into an upcoming Marvel film: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March 2022) with Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen. That figures given the title — Marvel used Loki to introduce the multiverse idea throughout its episodes, with (*2*) roughly setting the stage. With the sacred timeline splitting up into infinite branches, it will trigger chaos throughout the MCU. This additionally explains what we all know of Spider-Man: No Way Home (December 17), which is able to usher in villains from Sony’s older Spider-Man motion pictures. All that can play into Doctor Strange 2, with the wizard and witch attempting to place issues proper.
Hence, it is unattainable to say the place Loki season 2 will discover itself when it does roll round, because the MCU will undoubtedly be a really totally different place by then. While everybody concerned with Loki has been extraordinarily coy for probably the most half, the closest we have gotten to a touch of the long run got here from Marvel Studios VP of manufacturing and growth Nate Moore when he said: “I think there’s a lot of storytelling in Loki that’s really irreverent and clever and cool, but also lends itself to multiple seasons in a way where it’s not a one-off.” To be truthful, even that does not inform us a lot. We will simply have to attend for the Spider-Man and Doctor Strange sequels for clues, I suppose.
