As soon as it was revealed in the Super Bowl ad that Loki was in the custody of the Tim Variance Agency aka TVA (polices time-travel and Multiverse) it was assumed by folks including HN Entertainment that Avengers villain Kang The Conqueror could be coming soon given their connections and the villain might be possibly even teased in the series.
So, it could be simply an educated guess which makes sense considering the connections between TVA and Kang.
We should certainly consider this simply a rumor until it’s verified.
The Multiverse being tinkered with could bring out all-new threats along with the previous time-travelling in Avengers: Endgame coming back to bite the heroes in the ass potentially creating an even worse future down the line.
HN previously pointed out that Kang would certainly be a decent follow-up to Thanos if Marvel still hasn’t figured out what to do with the bigger Fantastic Four rogues like Doctor Doom, Annihilus, and Galactus.
Kang could also become a great reason for heroes from across the Multiverse to come together in something like Avengers: Secret Wars.
Loki is currently shooting in Atlanta, Georgia until the working title of The Architect. The title could be a possible nod to the Elder of the Universe character, not unlike The Collected (played by Benicio Del Toro) and The Grandmaster (played by Jeff Goldblum).
Kate Herron (Sex Education) is directing the series with Michael Waldron (Rick & Morty) acting the show’s head writer.
Waldron was recently tapped by Marvel Studios to do rewrites on Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness, further confirmation that Loki will directly tie-into the Doctor Strange sequel as stated by Kevin Feige last year.
WandaVision is also expected to influence Doctor Strange 2, which is said to have Sam Raimi (Spider-Man 1-3) in talks to direct.
I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if Loki will directly connect to Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love & Thunder as well.
The show’s cast currently includes Tom Hiddleston returning as the iconic troublemaker Loki, Sophia Di Martino reportedly playing Lady Loki, comedic actor Owen Wilson in an unknown role, and British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (The Cloverfield Paradox, Black Mirror) recently mentioned for an undisclosed part as well.
Loki was originally announced to be targeting a Spring 2021 release date on Disney+.
However, with other shows getting bumped-up earlier there is a shot that Loki could begin airing in the winter of 2021.
