My question is... were they referencing Mephisto in that Chapel???
Jun 11th 2021
8
I thought so BUT.....
Jun 11th 2021
9
      or possibly Kang?
Jun 11th 2021
10
           They've already cast Kang for the films
Jun 11th 2021
11
                Kang is Johnathan Majors from Lovecraft Country
Jun 11th 2021

rule of thumb...if they are a major actor/actress they are not just there for the TV shows...they will have an impact on future movies
Gugu's role is MAJOR for upcoming movie arcs !!!!!

The pre-Ragnarok version of Loki needed all these kicks in the (gender-fluid) dick. The DB Cooper thing was kind of a let down because I thought that would’ve been a full episode sometime down the line. I’m glad my boo from Lovecraft Country is in this.

That could just be the devil.

If this is another version of Loki (in a ladies body) then it's not Mephisto.

The director says it's Loki's horns;

In response to Reply # 10


  

          

He's going to be the villain in Ant-Man 3, and they're reportedly setting him up to be the next Thanos type. Plua, onw of the characters already has a connection to Kang in the comic books. So it's likely that he may figure into this somehow. At least alluded to at some point.

You're very likely right that they're setting things up for him, and the characters will probably allude to him, especially by the end, where they could reveal that he's the force behind whoever is the villain here.

But they usually introduce the "major" MCU characters on the big screen, rather than the small one. The one exception was in Falcon and Winter Soldier, and that was because Black Widow was supposed to be in theaters before that show premiered. So I doubt we actually get to see Majors as Kang yet. Or at least I'd be VERY surprised.

In response to Reply # 15


  

          

My boy was telling me they showed Chronopolis for a quick second when Hank and his wife were about to leave the Quantum realm. I’ve seen the movie like 5 times and never noticed it but when I went back to where he was saying, it really does look like a city in a bubble in the background as they rocket out of there. Which makes sense if that’s the case cuz that could have been where Hank’s wife lived for those 20 years. And now it really does look like they were setting up to talk about it in Ant Man 3. I totally missed that.

The whole premise of the TVA is amazing and the fact that the place that is untouched by time looks like 70s bureaucratic design that every city still has is hilarious

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

i think the newest episode started hinting harder at something else going on with the TVA.

maybe its more about the fact that loki left his previous timeline and the repercussions of that. or maybe even the loki we are seeing now would had gone on to mess things up, which they in theory already saw happen, so they went back and got him before he had a chance to.

In response to Reply # 26


  

          

As soon as he vanished with the Tesseract, care of Tony by way of a rampaging Hulk, he broke away from the way the timeline was supposed to progress. They gotta whack him at that point before he causes a bunch of other timeline branches. Imagine if they let variant Loki run wild and he, say, popped back up on Earth, joined Hydra, and helped Bucky murk Cap on the Helicarrier? LOL.

Peace,

to keep the peace... at least as the Time Keepers tell it.

I think the show is going to examine that premise and show the Time Keepers' intentions are less noble.

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

The people convicted as "Variants" aren't necessarily doing anything wrong, just something that wasn't "supposed" to happen based on the Time Keepers idea of what the sacred timeline is. It's not about purposefully doing something wrong or evil, or the Time Keepers would be stopping Thanos and other villains. So end the end it's likely that there's a Wizard of Oz type of reveal for the Time Keepers where they are the real villains, resetting all these innocent people, calling them variants and making them work for the TVA.

they might be throwing us off but it seems they want us to expect it to be another loki.

In response to Reply # 32


  

          

Which would be tough to explain, given that they're introducing Kang soon. But I don't think they're introducing Kang straight-up in a TV series. They're going to wait for the movies.

I'm hoping that it's not another Loki.

or it is another Loki variant. I don't think Kang will show up until 'Ant Man & the Wasp: Quantumania'.

Everything points to Kang in 'Loki', but I believe it will be a huge misdirect. You all know Marvel loves messing with our heads.

47. "It would, but it would also be in keeping with the theme of the story"
In response to Reply # 45


  

          

People put a lot of expectations on these shows, but WandaVision and Falcon vs. WS have shown that these shows aren't here for fan service when it comes to introducing lots of characters. I may want them to introduce Immortus as the guy behind it all, but from a storytelling perspective it wouldn't make sense for the villain behind it all to be someone we haven't seen or hasn't been mentioned or even alluded to in the previous five episodes.

The show has been about the nature of Loki, so it would make that the "ultimate" Loki would be the one behind the scenes pulling all the strings.

And whoever it is in the castle, I'm pretty sure that they're controlling the Miss Minutes cartoon. And they **are** in some way Miss Minutes.

I thought I heard they were going to do a season 2 for this one. If that's true then I can see them introducing a "medium bad" to focus on as some kind of cliffhanger.

much better than another Loki variant.

61. "He should be pretty cool for movie fans"
In response to Reply # 54


  

          

I didn't read a lot of Kang as a kid, but what makes him interesting is that pretty much every version of him has come from the future to wield his knowledge against less intelligent civilizations, and like Loki's Kang argues it's often in a sort of Thanos-adjacent aim at benevolence, but he's also incredibly unpredictable and condescending because you're not always meeting the same Kang, but he's always coming from the same place of being smarter/"better" than everyone.


Given the performance, and set up, from Jonathan Majors in this episode, it'll be interesting to see if Phase 4/5/6 even focuses on any one version of Kang or if Majors becomes the Downey/Evans of this Marvel run, just playing different roles all the time.

Like, in some ways it's a pretty cynical move from Marvel. They're looking at all the re-cast superheroes and villains across time (I actually think Toby Maguire as Spider-Man is still the lock on the door even if Spider-Verse proved to be the key) and realizing that they've built the sort of beast that, even if it falters from it's phase 3 height, is basically an impenetrable fortress at this point. Marvel doesn't need to tell a decade-long story anymore (though it will) and it doesn't need central characters anymore (though it will have them), instead it has the constumes and the action and the "who knows who and who is where" question looming over everything now. They can tell just about any story they want and put any sort of actor in those suits, just like in the comics, but for now they've managed to maintain that everything is related to the core story they'd been telling for 15 years now.


The ending of this Loki series gives them an out for everything, from Steve and Tony dying to having to remember how they wrapped up the Hulk storyline or where they left Wanda in that cabin. Thanos can even come back as the villain for a movie if Brolin is available and they get desperate for a compelling performance. Everything is on the table now and anecdotally it seems like one 20 minute performance, essentially entirely table setting and monologue, from Jonathan Majors sold it to all but the most casual surface level MCU watcher.


From a corporate stance you could call it safe, I guess, but from a storytelling stance Marvel is really asking theater audiences to fully give themselves over to the machine in a way that really only comic book and maybe video game people are used to. And the consensus seems to be that the answer to that ask is "yes please!"

I enjoyed basically every moment of the season. The only point I wavered was the end of episode 4. It seemed like it was going to lose direction but nah they kept hitting.

Based on WandaVision I did not expect them to actually bring out such a big character at the end. For it to be from the beginning of the episode was something else too. This ending definitely has me geeked to see where it all goes from here.
