Marvel and Disney Plus take us behind the making of Loki

Is there going to be a season 2 of Loki?

A glorious purpose in the MCU. Six words shook Marvel's newly formed multiverse: “Loki will return in Season 2.” Last week's Loki finale confirmed long-standing rumors that Tom Hiddleston's journey into the mystery of self-discovery wouldn't be limited to a single season. Inverse'Loki' Season 2 may finally make good on Marvel’s Disney+ promise

Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making Of Loki (Disney+, 3:01 a.m.): Much like it did for WandaVision and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier, this episode of the Disney+ docuseries will focus on the making of Loki, which aired its season finale last week. The special will feature interviews with crew and cast members Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Wunmi Mosaku from the set of the show.

Turner & Hooch (Disney+, 3:01 a.m., series premiere): Turner & Hooch doesn’t have enough punch to be Michael Bay for TV (though McG does his best to blow up everything in sight in the pilot episode), nor does the show assert itself as a family sitcom. This legacy sequel might have worked better, if just barely, if [director Matt] Nix had actually remade the film—no one wants to have to replace Tom Hanks as a Tom Hanks character, but at least the show would have a sense of direction.” Here’s the rest of Danette Chavez’s review of the Disney+ series starring Josh Peck and Lyndsy Fonseca.

Sexy Beasts (Netflix, 3:01 a.m.):Netflix’s Sexy Beasts uses cutting-edge prosthetics to give its prospective daters the visages of various animals and mythical creatures. The contestants’ goal is to find a partner based on personality and not just looks. As far as dating show gimmicks go, the premise is both creative and creepy, but the series doesn’t embrace its inherent weirdness.” Read the entire review here.

Kung Fu (The CW, 8 p.m., season-one finale): In the season one finale, “Transformation,” Nicky (Olivia Liang) learns what is needed to open the forge, and an emergency at home threatens to derail Althea (Shannon Dang) and Dennis (Tony Chung)’ tea ceremony. The show also stars Tzi Ma, Eddie Liu, and Jon Prasida. This reboot of the classic 1970s series has already been renewed for season two.

Loki Production Designer Teases the Fourth Time Keeper

CBR - Comic Book Resources 20 July, 2021 - 10:38pm

Kasra Farahani, the production designer for Disney+'s Loki, teased the existence of a fourth Time Keeper.

Three Time Keepers are represented throughout Season 1 of Loki, be it through statues at the TVA or robot puppets kept hidden for millennia. However, in the season finale, Episode 6, "For All Time. Always," when Loki and Sylvie reach the Citadel at the End of Time, there is a fourth Time Keeper statue shattered on the floor. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Farahani was asked to elaborate on this detail. "I can't say anything about it, unfortunately, but the answers will be forthcoming," Farahani said.

Along with the release of concept art from the series, Farahani explained his inspiration for the Citadel at the End of Time, the massive castle that housed the season's big bad, He Who Remains (played by Jonathan Majors). "I believe He Who Remains built it," Farahani said. "The biggest influence was probably Xanadu from Citizen Kane and Hearst Castle [the real-life inspiration for Xanadu] as a result. This eccentric person rattling around this big Citadel." Director Kate Herron has also recently stated that Majors' character was directly inspired by the man behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz.

The fourth Time Keeper statue isn't the only thing that's in disrepair in the Citadel. Rather, according to Farahani, the intention behind the Citadel's design was to look dilapidated, while He Who Remains' office was the only part of the castle in pristine condition.

"I pitched this idea that he'd retreated to the office at the time. The atrium, [where] you see the 13-foot-tall Sentinels of Time statues and the hall with the giant timepiece and the Timekeeper statues… there would be a sense that he had retreated from these places and they're in disrepair," Farahani said.

The Time Keepers were introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Loki Season 1 as cosmic beings responsible for ending the great multiversal war and creating the Sacred Timeline. However, it was revealed that they were nothing more than androids created by He Who Remains (voiced by Majors). While the fourth Time Keeper isn't mentioned in Loki, he does appear in a 2005 Fantastic Four comic titled Divine Time: Part 2, written by Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa. In the comic, he has been banished to Egypt in 2950 BC by the three main Time Keepers for an unknown reason and warns the Fantastic Four about Kang the Conqueror's son, Ramades.

The Citadel at the End of Time, as well as the destroyed Time Keeper statue, appears in the season finale of Loki. All six episodes are available to stream on Disney+.

Disney+ Marvel Show Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoff

Looper 20 July, 2021 - 08:15pm

It's only a matter of time before one of these supporting characters get a show of their own, but which of them should it be? Let's run down all our favorite characters who appear in the Disney+ Marvel shows that we think are most deserving of their own spinoff series.

We never could have predicted it, but these two are great together. Jimmy and Darcy totally deserve their very own "X-Files"-style buddy cop supernatural procedure. Think about it — Jimmy is the sweet put-upon responsible one, and Darcy is the mischievous countercultural rascal. Jimmy supplies the law enforcement experience, and Darcy knows everything about scientific and magical anomalies. Come on, Marvel, make it happen.

Back in the 1950s, Isaiah Bradley was part of a group of soldiers that were experimented on in an attempt to recreate the Captain America super soldier serum. In his case, the experiment worked. Bradley became a superhuman, but since he was a black man, the government hid all evidence of his existence. The military used him as a pawn for a while, along with a squad of other similarly enhanced soldiers, to run covert missions during the Korean War, and he even crossed paths with the Winter Soldier during this time. However, after he disobeyed orders to save the lives of his squadmates, the government decided that Bradley was more trouble than he was worth, and they locked him away for 30 years.

"Agent Carter" already proved that the MCU and historical fiction are a dynamite combination. We'd love a chance to see this beautifully tragic 1950s spy thriller, starring a black superhero, or maybe even an entire team of black superheroes. When Malcolm Spellman, the creator of "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier," was asked by the Hollywood Reporter whether or not he'd be interested in making an Isaiah Bradley prequel, his response was, "For sure."

After the apparent breakdown of the TVA at the end of the season, at least in certain timelines, there are going to be countless former TVA agents who are now lost and searching for meaning. You could make a series about any one of these characters, but we think that the most interesting way to go would be instead to see the perspectives of all of them.

We'd love to see an ensemble cast show about the TVA with a rotating protagonist, in the style of shows like "Orange is the New Black" or "The Haunting of Hill House." Some characters might try to learn who they once were and track down old friends and loved ones. Given that these characters are from timelines that no longer exist, many of their stories would end in tragedy. There would also be stories set before our characters knew the truth — we might even glimpse who some of them were before, as flashes of memory slowly return to them.

There are many ways that Marvel could go with an Agatha spinoff series. It could be a prequel — an expanded version of the flashbacks we saw of Agatha's time during the Salem witch trials. It could also be a sequel. If Agatha somehow gets free of Wanda's brainwashing, her story could go in any number of interesting directions, whether she stays evil or seeks redemption. And you can bet that if we got to hear "Agatha All Along" at the start of each episode, there's no way we'd ever hit that "skip intro" button.

The only real strike against making Agatha a full-on protagonist is just how evil she is. After all, at one point, Agatha proudly confesses that she was the one who killed Wanda's dog Sparky. It's kind of hard to imagine a person like that being someone that an audience could really root for. But then again, Disney's "Cruella" film has shown us that nowadays, a willingness to kill dogs is not necessarily a deal breaker for a character when it comes to a sympathetic re-imagining, so anything's possible.

But despite Rhodey's ubiquity in the MCU, he's never really had an opportunity to be at the center of his own story, and we still honestly don't know all that much about him. What is his backstory? What are his hopes and fears? Who is he really, as a person? We get some glimpses now and then, like the wonderfully touching moments between him and Nebula in "Avengers: Endgame." And War Machine's appearance in "The Falcon and the Winter Soldier" was a pleasant surprise, as it always is. But even including these examples, we still feel that Rhodey has been tragically underutilized pretty much every time he shows up. Cheadle is doing so much with so little that it's time he finally had a story that was worthy of him.

Fortunately, it was recently announced that we will indeed most likely get what we're asking for this time. Marvel has announced that Rhodey will be the central character in the upcoming series "Armor Wars." Whatever Marvel is planning with this series, we're confident that Cheadle will absolutely knock it out of the park.

We don't know much about this alligator with seemingly human-level intelligence, but there's a bit in Episode 5 that might be the key to understanding the world he comes from. There's a brief moment in the Lokis' secret lair in which we see a frog dressed like Thor (and voiced by Chris Hemsworth) trapped in a small glass container. This moment is presumably intended as a throwaway reference to the comics character Throg, but another potential interpretation is that this frog version of Thor is actually from the same alternate reality as Alligator Loki, perhaps implying that there is a version of Asgard that is a swamp full of sentient animals.

Picture this alternate reality in which Thor, Odin, and Frigga are all frogs, and their adopted son Loki grew up believing that he too was a frog, until one day he learned the terrible truth — that he is in fact an alligator. Are Lady Sif, Volstagg, Hogun, and Fandral all river creatures? Is Heimdall a wise old owl with enormous blazing eyes? Yes, it's absurd, but we would also definitely watch it.

Monica winds up endowed with superpowers of her own, and even participates in some of the action during the finale, but we still couldn't help but feel that Monica didn't really get to do much. We've since learned the reason why: Monica Rambeau's role was actually downsized somewhat, with multiple scenes and storylines cut at various stages of the process. One was a recurring subplot involving her therapist, according to an episode of the podcast "The Awardist." Another was a major action scene during the finale in which Monica, Darcy, and Ralph would have battled a giant demonic rabbit, according to an interview with director Matt Shakman on the podcast "Fatman Beyond."

We understand that these cuts may have been necessary for the greater good of the story. But at the same time, we want Monica to have a story of her own, where she can fight all the demonic rabbits she wants and there's no one around to stop her. We're definitely going to get more Monica in the upcoming film "The Marvels," and that's great, but why not a solo series as well?

We think a television series centered on Ayo would be an absolute slam dunk. And if you're a fan of the comics, you know there's another reason to be excited about her. The comic "Black Panther: World of Wakanda" features a romance between Ayo and another member of the Dora Milaje named Aneka, one of only a handful of canonical queer relationships that exist in any version of the Marvel universe. The potential queerness of the MCU version of Ayo was almost confirmed once already in "Black Panther," in a scene that sadly did not make the final cut of the film.

Though we still haven't seen much of her, Ayo has just as much potential to be a rich and interesting character as any of the more prominent Wakandans that we've spent more time with. She'll most likely have a part in the upcoming Wakanda TV series. Here's hoping it's a big one.

When Loki and Sylvie are searching for a way off the doomed planet Lamentis, they come across a small home in the middle of the wasteland. As Sylvie opens the door, she is immediately knocked off her feet by a blast from some sort of sci-fi shotgun. Inside the home, we see an older woman holding the gun, steely determination in her eyes. In the scene that follows, the actress playing the homesteader, Susan Gallagher, effortlessly holds her own against Sophia Di Martino and Tom Hiddleston.

In addition to her clear intelligence and ruthlessness, and the fact that she's implied to have some sort of complex toxic relationship with an ex-husband, perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Lamentian Homesteader is that, unlike all the other people on this planet, she isn't attempting to flee. She is sitting in her home, patiently awaiting death. It's rare for a character to be so instantly compelling with so little screen time. Don't get us wrong, we love the mystery surrounding this woman, and in some ways, we don't want to know anything else about her. But on the other hand, we also want to know everything.

If Sharon Carter ever got her own series, there's many ways she could go from here. Perhaps something happens that causes her to regain her hope in humanity and abandon her criminal ways. Or alternatively, she could go further down the path of crime, in a self-destructive "Breaking Bad"-esque spiral of poor decisions. Heck, in the comics, she was even the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. for a while, so nothing's really off the table when it comes to Agent 13.

It's a moment that's pretty clearly intended to tease the upcoming film "The Marvels," but to be honest, as interesting as her message is, we're just as intrigued by the messenger. Yes, it's possible that this Skrull woman is just temporarily posing as an FBI agent in order to contact Monica, but consider for a moment an alternative: what if this character is actually a full-time FBI agent, but also secretly a Skrull?

Think about it. By day, she plays the part of a human, solving the case of the week in a fairly standard police procedural. By night, she lives a double life in the secret subculture of Skrulls who are hiding right here on Earth. Sometimes her two worlds collide, and she has to either covertly use her shapeshifting powers to solve crimes, or use her position within the FBI to hide the existence of the Skrulls from the general public. Now that's one heck of a premise.

What Loki’s Final Location Reveals About Its Big Villain

Vanity Fair 20 July, 2021 - 01:36pm

He begins at the ’60s-inspired, orange-hued offices of the Time Variance Authority, then travels through an eccentrically cluttered void littered with the universe’s refuse, and ends at the edge of the known universe. In order to sell audiences on both the eerily bureaucratic TVA and the unknowable edges of time, Marvel tapped Kasra Farahani to shape the show’s aesthetics—even though he had more experience as a concept artist (he’d done work in that department for the studio since 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy sequel) than as a production designer. 

The first season’s final location, the Citadel at the End of Time, is a particular stunner that ties together themes and character work, and reveals some extra layers behind Jonathan Majors’s mesmerizing new character—known, thus far, only as He Who Remains. According to Farahani, He Who Remains hasn’t left that building in a long, long time and Marvel fans may want to wonder why. Farahani took Vanity Fair behind the scenes of this location, including sharing some exclusive imagery, to explain just what, exactly, He Who Remains is all about.    

Vanity Fair: How was this location initially described to you? What were the writers looking for? 

Kasra Farahani: This is one of those things we were designing, at least in a preliminary way, in the absence of a script. When we started, we had scripts for the first couple of episodes, but the others were just an outline. We knew it was the Citadel at the End of Time where He Who Remained was. There’s some precedent imagery in the comics. It was basically a fortress on top of a tiny asteroid. So much of the goal of the show was to have the visual and narrative anchor of the TVA, but then to have to have this big universe with all these different locations that span a broad visual spectrum. We knew [the Citadel] was going to be the last location, so we wanted it to be particularly spectacular. 

We came up with the idea of doing something inspired by Petra in Jordan—so this notion that the architecture was carved in situ from the asteroid itself as opposed to being erected by bringing in different building materials. Everything was going to be literally hewn from the asteroid itself. This is kind of a big commitment, looks-wise, because in order for it to work, there couldn’t be [anything else] brought it. It would have been strange to have the architecture carved from this asteroid—which we pitched as black with a gold vein of an unknowable element moving through it—and then bring in wood and carpets and painting. It’s such a flamboyant choice to carve the whole building out of this stuff, and the style, being inspired by Gothic revival, was going to be flashy. So we needed to commit to this idea that there are no other finishes in there. 

Who built this place? 

I believe He Who Remains built it. The biggest influence was probably Xanadu from Citizen Kane, and Hearst Castle as a result. This eccentric person rattling around this big Citadel. I pitched this idea that he’d retreated to the office at the time. The atrium, [where] you see the 13-foot-tall Sentinels of Time statues and the hall with the giant timepiece and the Timekeeper statues…there would be a sense that he had retreated from these places and they’re in disrepair. In terms of architectural style, we also took inspiration from Hearst Castle, [which] is this composite of different pieces of European architecture. 

We wanted the sense that [He Who Remains] had architecturally cherry-picked from assorted grand architectural styles. Some stuff, like the tessellated surfacing on some of the columns, is more unknowable and fantasy, to create this atmosphere of a self-edifying and grandiose space that is almost a project he got bored with. 

Speaking of those Timekeeper statues, obviously we’re intrigued by the fourth figure that’s smashed on the floor. What can you say about that? 

I can’t say anything about it, unfortunately, but the answers will be forthcoming.

I know in an earlier version of the finale, our heroes Loki and Sylvie were meant to be battling “a series of the greatest warriors across the timeline.” Is that why a section of the Citadel is called the Hall of Heroes in your plans? 

That was leftover from that version. It ended up being more about this grand antechamber to the elevator, which has this huge elaborate astrolabe on the floor and the timepiece in the ceiling. And they are connected [through] the movements of the gears. 

I have a sort of philosophical production design question for you. There are some fireplaces around this castle, and on the heath you see the same things I’ve got on the hearth of my fireplace—a little shovel and broom, etc. When you’re putting something like that there in the Citadel at the End of Time, are you imagining He Who Remains cleaning out his own fireplace? Or do you put it there because it looks odd to have a fireplace without those tools there? 

It can be either or both! That set was actually quite hard, though. Not the office, [which] will have traces of a life being lived. It was harder in the hall because there’s two giant fireplaces there and no other set dressing. To answer your question, it’s about characterization and, like you’re saying, what is this person doing in this space? Sometimes it’s about just making it not be distracting that something isn’t there. In the case of the office, I think it’s the former. I don’t know; somebody that’s beamed up from the TVA—Casey from the TVA is beamed up to clean out his fireplace. Does Casey do his errands for him? Somebody has to do it, because he’s living in this space. 

We hoped to demonstrate that he’s been here a long time, and had a lot of time to read and make notes. One of the things we were trying to do visually is that there’s a level of decay and roughness to the other spaces, whereas there’s an additional layer of polish inside his office. The asteroid rock surfaces of the floor and walls are just slightly shinier. There were literally piles and piles of things that we wanted to collect around his desk, creating this idea that there might be stretches of time where he doesn’t leave the desk for a thousand years or something.

We do see that black and gold material being used as almost alien or “metaphysical,” to use your term, technology in the Loki finale. 

The Citadel stone started in the art department as a pitch for this, but it ended up propagating itself far beyond that—like [He Whom Remains’s] temp pad. If you go back and look through the TVA, you can see that there are other things, like statues in Renslayer’s office and the dais in the Time Court, also hewn from this stone. There are few other places where this rock that just looks like a beautiful or strange stone is actually like this link between He Who Remains and the TVA.

‘Loki’ director says the key to the multiverse is hiding in plain sight

Yahoo Entertainment 20 July, 2021 - 01:25pm

It’s the multiverse that has us still scratching our heads after episode 6. The events in Loki will impact the entire timeline. We’ll see the multiverse in at least two MCU films later this year, and there’s an amazing TV show waiting in the wings to tell other multiverse stories. But it turns out that one of the biggest multiverse revelations is hiding in plain sight. It’s right there in the finale, but we’re too oblivious to it to see it. Luckily, Loki director Kate Herron explained everything. Beware, massive spoilers follow below.

Kang (Jonathan Majors) is one of the episode’s highlights, taking up a lot more time than we would have envisioned for this particular character reveal. But his presence is essential for moving the story forward. He needs to explain himself to Loki and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), so the two can decide what to do next. It’s either another multiverse war and a free timeline, or Loki and Sylvie become the TVA’s co-CEOs, replacing He Who Remains.

We all know what happened in the finale, but we need to revisit Kang’s multiverse exposition to understand Herron’s revelations.

Kang explaining to Loki and Sylvie how the multiversal wars started is one of the episode’s best parts. Even after all these eons of equilibrium, you can see Kang is still angry. He still remembers what had happened, and Majors does a great job bringing all those conflicting emotions to the surface.

In Kang’s excellent show-and-tell presentation, we learn that he weaponized Alioth and then ended the multiversal wars. Here’s the quote again:

I weaponized Alioth and I ended… I ended the Multiversal War.

Once I isolated our timeline, all I had to do was manage the flow of time and prevent any further branches. Hence the TVA.

This Kang version never said that he obliterated other timelines. He just isolated his reality, pruned the branches, and prevented another multiverse from spawning from the Sacred Timeline we see in Loki.

The minute Kang gives up control, we see the Sacred Timeline branching out (above) in other timelines that will form parallel universes. Branches instantly appear everywhere. Without Kang and the TVA’s immediate action, the branches appear simultaneously in the past, present, and future. And it all happens so quickly that we get a massive multiverse by the end of it all.

Only, all those branches aren’t coming from the Sacred Timeline (below). There appear to be other variations of the Sacred Timelines out there, isolated from the MCU’s primary reality.

Herron explained this key Loki detail all to Murphy Multiverse.

So, there’s the branches, right, which is like the alternative reality. But then something, you’ll see it, it’s very subtle but in the very last shot where you see the multiverse, there’s like basically other bigger physical timeline branches. So, it’s almost like these different separate trees that are now connecting.

It’s almost like a bridge. If you imagine the branch, it is like another reality. But if the branch extends beyond a certain point, it will then connect to other physical timelines. […] That last shot we did, there are other like thicker [branches] that are meant to be like our timeline. And there are other timelines like that and the branches are the connectors basically.

Given Herron’s exciting revelation, it looks like the multiverse was always there. The Kang who died didn’t have to destroy the others to “win.” He just had to isolate his timeline and keep it in check. “For all time. Always.” It’s unclear how he did it, but this might have been enough to prevent other significant timelines from interacting with this one. The TVA Loki experienced only had to prune all branches so the Sacred Timeline would not spawn a multiverse of its own.

It’s clear from the ending that Loki landed in what appears to be a different reality. The TVA feels familiar, but it’s different. And a different Kang rules over it all.

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Wednesday, July 21. All times are Eastern.

Everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is interconnected. That was clear from the moment Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) visited Tony Stark in the Iron Man post-credits scene. In the years since, heroes came and went, planets exploded, and a purple supervillain wiped out half of all life in the universe. And yet, Marvel still … The post Marvel made the finales of ‘Loki’ and ‘WandaVision’ sync up perfectly, and we almost missed it appeared first on BGR.
