MCU Phase 4: Here's how the 'Loki' miniseries on Disney+ could connect to 'Thor: Love and Thunder'
'Loki' apparently revolves around him using the Tesseract to travel through space and time and fiddle around with major historical moments. The rumor is that he'll be traveling to the 'Loki'-less timeline and will make an entrance during the events of 'Love and Thunder'
The Infinity Saga or Phase 3 of the MCU as we know it signaled its end with an epic in 'Avengers: Endgame'. The new stage sees eight MCU shows coming to Disney + over the next couple of years and each of them connects to the studios' future films after having a solid storyline in the past. Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige, too teased that these small-screen shows will be directly tied to and influence the MCU movies. While there are superheroes in the form of Jane Foster's Thor and Eternals who will be making an entrance, these shows may play a key role in setting up future films.
Speaking of Thor, 'Loki' is one of the characters who will be getting his own miniseries in 2021. In all probability, the show is most likely to be set up by the events of 'Avengers: Infinity War' and 'Avengers: Endgame'. In the former, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) met his end at the hands of Thanos (Josh Brolin). However, 'Endgame' bought in time travel as a major concept, and last we saw, the God of Mischief, the 2012 version at least, vamoosed with the Tesseract. The Avengers created a branched reality, one where Loki could make his getaway, and speculations are that this is the Loki the series will be looking at.
According to Screenrant, 'Loki' apparently revolves around him using the Tesseract to travel through space and time and fiddle around with major historical moments. The rumor is that he'll be traveling to the 'Loki'-less timeline and may have a role in 'Thor: Love and Thunder' at some capacity.
Here is the brief on the Loki-themed section of Disney's confirmation of the series: "Disney+ is also assembling a live-action series centered around a fan-favorite character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. [Disney Chairman and CEO Bob] Iger today confirmed that Marvel Studios is developing a series based on Loki, the god of mischief, to star Tom Hiddleston."
