Loki has died lots of times. He was tricked because he thought he was smarter than his enemies. His enemies were really smart, so Loki died many times. In the season 1 finale of Loki, Sylvie (played by Sophia Di Martino) was very excited to kill someone. But in the end, she killed everyone in the world.
This is about Kang the Conqueror, who protects one timeline. If there were more timelines, things would be crazy, and there would be a war. That means that someone might die, or something could happen to change time. But because Kang has killed people who break their promise, Loki and Sylvie are unhappy because they don’t agree with what he did. They both want revenge for now because of what happened to them in the past.
He Who Remains wants them to do something. They can become the people who control the Sacred Timeline, or they can kill him and start a war. But if they do that, then he would just get back up and create the timeline anyway.
But Sylvie does not let herself or Loki think. They fight while she tries to reach He Who Remains with her weapon, and Loki tries to convince her that—maybe this time!—they are wrong. She refuses to listen. She kisses him into submission before tossing him back through a TemPad portal into the TVA headquarters. Finally, she kills the dictator; in the TVA headquarters, Loki realizes almost immediately that it is done.
Everyone is wondering what will happen next. We know a few things from the second season of Loki and from the rest of Marvel’s Phase 4.
Who will return?
We might see Loki and Sylvie in the second season of a TV show. We might also see Owen Wilson’s character, Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s character, and Wunmi Mosaku’s character. The major might come back to the show because he only appears in one episode of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
The lady who made season one of Loki, Kate Herron, won’t do the second. She is really happy with what she did and is excited to see what fresh eyes will do.
Herron teased that fans will be able to expect an even bigger story for Di Martino’s Sylvie in the next chapter. Don’t forget; she is on a much earlier part of her journey than Loki when it comes to recovery.
In an interview with Di Martino, she told ELLE that she is not sure about what version of Sylvie we will meet in season 2. She might be playing a different Loki variant. “I think she will still be the same character, but the multiverse makes even [that] a little bit complicated,” she says.
When will season 2 be released?
Disney has not set an official date for season 2. There will be a lot of new Marvel things coming out in the future, but we do not know when they will come out.
What does the finale mean for the future of MCU?
In a recent interview with Marvel.com, Michael Waldron talked about what they were looking for in the next big cross-movie villain. He said that they wanted a time-traveling, multiversal adversary who was going to be introduced soon. They knew that this person would be behind many of the events that have been happening in movies and TV shows recently.
With Kang coming, there will be many corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hawkeye is coming. Spider-Man: No Way Home will have two versions of Peter Parker in it. This means she could encounter Kang. And then Quantumania: It has huge implications for the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
In the new Marvel movie, everything is at stake. There is no Steve Rogers to put it back together. It will be a tough ride, so make sure you hold onto your seat!
