Loki has played a very memorable role throughout his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s the God of Mischief and has made it abundantly clear on multiple occasions he’s looking out for # 1: himself. This comes at the cost of practically anyone or anything in his way as Lokis are known for their selfish behavior. However, the television show Loki has proven that, despite this trait, he still has additional layers to his personality, which we’re now getting the chance to explore with him in the lead role for the first time.
Loki certainly got up to a lot of trouble in Season 1. With the assistance of Mobius and Sylvie, the entire Time Variance Authority (TVA) was destroyed, and it opened up multiple universes overlapping with one another for the first time in the MCU. However, those alternate timelines are yet to be explored in the show. Who (or what) will now be able to cross over into Loki’s world, or vice versa? With season 2 of Loki confirmed and scheduled to start filming in summer 2022here’s what we’d like to see happen during the next chapter of the popular Disney + show.
The Original Cast Returning
Keeping the main actors on a show is typically needed for good story continuity. However, with multiple timelines now going on in Loki, who’s to say another actor could not just come in and take over as the alternate version of an established character from Season 1? This is Marvel, though, where actors are typically committed to multi-project contracts before ever setting foot onscreen. Never say never in the multiverse, of course. Marvel is known to keep many of its actors in the dark (or sworn to secrecy) to keep future storylines from leaking, so do not expect to know any significant upcoming plans until it’s ready to be announced. While nothing can officially be confirmed at this time, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie, Owen Wilson’s Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Ravonna Renslayerand Wunmi Mosaku’s Hunter B-15 are all likely to return.
A Deeper Look Into The Multiverse
With the TVA gone, what’s going to happen next? The possibilities are literally endless. While Spider-Man: No Way Home has already shown us a glimpse of the multiverse and season 1 of Loki explored what a world of multiple Lokis might look like, there’s no telling which direction things may go next. Both the timelines and storylines are wide open. What we do know at this point is both Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania are expected to continue the multiverse storyline. It’s also been rumored that Loki will appear in the upcoming Doctor Strange film, however that is yet to be seen. One thing looks to be for sure, do not expect things to go back to only one MCU timeline by the end of season 2 of Loki.
Loki to Reunite with the Version of Mobius Who Remembers Him
At the end of season 1, Loki is sent back to the former TVA headquarters. He finds Mobius, however, Mobius does not know who Loki is. Does this mean Loki is already in an alternate universe or that Loki’s actions erased Mobius’ memory of him? Season 2 will hopefully explain this early on. The relationship between Mobius and Loki was a big draw of season 1, and it was great to see them interacting onscreen together. They had even formed a friendship of sorts. We hope season 2 will reunite Loki with the Mobius he knew from season 1.
The Continuation of Sylvie and Loki’s Relationship
There was an interesting dynamic between these two characters, and they even shared a kiss in season 1. However, Lokis are not to be trusted. If they see each other again, will they fight one another or continue working together? Perhaps some of both? Where does Sylvie’s allegiance lie now that she brought down the TVA? Her main goal has been accomplished. What does she do next?
A Cameo From Loki’s Brother Thor (or maybe other Avengers)
With Marvel’s Phase 4 underway, will we see Thor or other Avengers appear in Season 2? While it may feel like a bit of a stretch, this could be accomplished through the use of the multiverse or even in Loki flashbacks. With virtually nothing off the table at the moment, it would certainly give fans something exciting to talk about. A cameo could be used much like end-credit scenes are used in Marvel movies: to set up future storylines in upcoming Marvel projects. Only time will tell how season 2 plays out. However, if it’s anything like season 1, then fans will not be disappointed.
