The series' final episode has aired since the interview was conducted, revealing more about the direction the MCU is heading, as well as the mid-credits announcement that Loki would be returning for another season. Before the announcement was made, Hiddleston was coy when asked about returning to the role, though he did talk about his journey as Loki.

"I have learned, at this point, having said goodbye to the character more than twice, two and a half times maybe, to make no assumptions," the actor said. "So, it’s not up to me. But I do love playing him, and every time, I seem to find new, interesting things about him. So, yeah, I’m a temporary passenger on Loki’s journey, but we’ll see. We’ll see where the ride goes now."

Hiddleston also talked about Loki's journey as a character, and how it's changed over the course of the TV show. "Loki’s someone who’s probably been deluded by the idea that he’s burdened with glorious purpose, and that perhaps that purpose has been revealed to be fraudulent or meaningless, and maybe his self-image or the role that he has condemned himself to play is redundant," Hiddleston explained. "His experiences through this story have shown him that there are actually more opportunities available to him, and you know, it speaks to this idea, like, can we change? Can we evolve, and in that evolution, is there room to grow?"

The actor also appears to be just as excited as most fans about what the TV show means for the larger MCU storyline that's developing. "I feel that the MCU is even more expansive, is even braver, more inclusive than it’s ever been," Hiddleston explained.

"I think the stories are getting really exciting," he added when pushed for more detail. "Not that they weren’t before, but I think they understand that the investment of the audience is very deep, and they don’t take it for granted for a second. So, yeah, I suppose the perspective I have on how Loki might affect the ongoing course of the MCU is this idea of the multiverse."

While the actor clearly can't give away anything too detailed about the future of the franchise, he was more than happy to speculate. "I know that there are lots of, you know, interesting titles of movies that’ve been announced, which kind of hint at where it might be going," he said.

Who is He Who Remains on Loki? Immortus Bio and MCU Villain Tease

menshealth.com 15 July, 2021 - 09:36am

We haven't seen anything like this before.

There have been a lot of amazing characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but there actually haven't been a ton of big time introductions. Sure, Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Thor, and others are great—but we met them all right at the beginning of their own star projects. The biggest introductions, or teases, that we've seen to this point have to be Thanos (first at the end of The Avengers, and then a few more times before Infinity War) and Spider-Man (who first showed up in Captain America: Civil War).

There have been a couple other fun ones (Wanda and Pietro Maximoff at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for starters, and the entire Doctor Strange movie was kind of a tease for the villain turn of Baron Mordo), but after the Season 1 finale of Loki, we've got a new winner. After a whole season of hints and teases that Kang the Conquerer would be showing up, the finale finally paid off, as Jonathan Majors made his MCU debut. But while he will be playing the Kang, this build-up saw him instead playing a likely variant of Kang. He was referred to by name as "He Who Remains," but the character seemed more like a hybrid of the Marvel Comics figures He Who Remains and Immortus (more on that in a little).

But after Sylvie made her choice and disposed of He Who Remains, his warning loomed large; Loki, sent back to the TVA, saw that Kang (or, perhaps another sinister variant?) had already taken charge. Majors is set to play the character at the very least in 2023's Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, but can almost certainly be expected to show up elsewhere.

He sure is. In the comics (first appearance in 1976's Thor 245), He Who Remains has some similarities to the one we saw in Loki; both are sort of the 'final boss' of the TVA, existing in the Citadel at the End of Time. The difference, though, is that the He Who Remains we saw in Loki was clearly a variant of Kang the Conquerer, and killing this He Who Remains sets Kang—and the whole multiverse— loose. The He Who Remains in the comics also wreaked havoc, but appeared as a very old man and created the Time-Twisters, which wound up destroying past universe's by time traveling. (Thor and Jane Foster eventually figure things out, and He Who Remains prevents these Time-Twisters from existing in the first place when he realizes what kind of damage is being wreaked.)

In Avengers Forever #3, Kang describes the differences between himself and Immortus.

In short, we'll just have to repeat what He Who Remains/Immortus/Kang said with his final breaths: "See you soon."

The MCU May Have Already Revealed How Kid Loki Killed Thor

We Got This Covered 15 July, 2021 - 09:20am

He may have taken the form of a teenager, but the most dangerous Loki variant in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Disney Plus series is the youngest version. When Tom Hiddleston voices his incredulity at taking orders from a child, it’s revealed that Kid Loki’s Nexus event saw him accomplish the very thing the main timeline’s trickster had failed to do so often by killing Thor.

Even though there are infinite realities in the multiverse, it’s still a surprise to discover that there’s one out there where the God of Thunder met his demise at the hands of his mischievous sibling. There’s been no official confirmation from Marvel Studios as to how Kid Loki managed the feat, but there’s a new theory making the rounds that claims it’s already been explained in the MCU, tied to Thor: Ragnarok.

In Taika Waititi’s cosmic blockbuster, Chris Hemsworth regales Bruce Banner and Valkyrie with the hilarious tale of how Loki once turned into a snake and stabbed him. Kid Loki is shown to favor the blade as his weapon of choice, and it’s been established that Nexus events result in the perpetrator being sent to the Void, so the theory puts forward the notion that this is the exact moment on another timeline where Thor dies unexpectedly, forcing the Time Variance Authority to step in and prune the Laufeyson.

Of course, the multiple variants and their respective backstories weren’t designed to be over-analyzed and dissected by fans, but that’s what happens when you cultivate the level of investment that the MCU has over the last thirteen years. Still, it’s definitely something worth thinking about, especially when we know for a fact Kid Loki is the only one to get the drop on his brother.

VIDEO: Marvel Villains That Could Team Up in Phase 4

CBR - Comic Book Resources 14 July, 2021 - 04:30pm

The first pairing on our list is the Grandmaster and the Collector. Currently, their fates aren't totally clear, but we do know that, at the very least, the Grandmaster is going to return for Thor: Love and Thunder. The Collector, for his part, may want to get revenge for Thanos having destroyed his collection of goodies from across the universe. As such, there's no better person for the Collector to partner with than the Grandmaster, especially considering that they're both Elders of the Universe in the comics. This could even lead to appearances from the other Elders.

Check out the video below for more Marvel villains that could team up in the MCU's future, including Ghost, Yellowjacket and more.

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, it's not totally clear just what shape the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will take. While there's a good indication the characters that Disney acquired from 21st Century Fox will soon arrive, there's not much solid information on just when or how that might happen. Right now, there are a lot of potential directions the MCU could go in the future, though exactly where it will go remains to be seen.
