The Loki season finale’s events had huge repercussions on the rest of MCU. It’s been quite some time since the Disney+ show about Loki was aired. We’ve got all the information you need. Our Loki review also includes our thoughts on the first episode.
Is there a second season of Loki? When will it be released?
Yes, Disney has confirmed that Loki will be returning for a second season in episode six.
Backstage magazine reported that filming would begin at Pinewood Studios in the summer. Owen Wilson said that filming would start “soon” during February. This means that the series will be released in 2023.
Loki Season 2 Crew: Who are these creatives behind the scenes?
Michael Waldron penned the first season’s script, but he will now produce the entire second season. Eric Martin will take over the writing of all six episodes.
Kate Herron helmed Loki Season 1 but will not return to direct Season. Loki Season 2 will be directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Moorhead has previously directed at most two episodes of Moon Knight. Benson and Moorhead have a reputation for preferring horror and supernatural storytelling. We may see darker themes for Loki Season 2.
Isaac Bauman was the show’s lead cinematographer and took to Instagram to update viewers on Loki.
What’s the plot of Loki season 2 ?
Loki is the most influential MCU Disney+ show in 2021. This is due to the revelation of He Who Remains by Jonathan Majors.
In comics lore, He Who Remains refers to a variant of Kang the Conqueror. Kang is a variety of Kang throughout history and always wants to dominate them all.
Loki and Sylvie’s version of their encounter at the End of Time was most like Immortus. This is a fairly fair version of the character, who wants to restore order to the timeline. He created the TVA and lies about the existence of Time Keepers.
He would do this to stop the timeline branching and prevent an all-out multiversal conflict between the Kangs. He knew what was about to happen, even before he spoke with the Loki variants.
Sylvie believed the man was a fraud, while Loki believed he was telling truth. They fought and it appeared that Loki was going to convince Sylvie to change her mind. But then Sylvie distracted Loki by kissing him and sent him to another timeline. She also killed He Who Remains.
Although Kang the Conqueror is already confirmed as the main antagonist in Ant-Man, The Wasp: Quantumania we believe his role may be even greater. The next Thanos could be on the horizon, a villain who will cross over through many Marvel films and shows.
In an interview with the Marvel website, Michael Waldron, head writer, explains more about Kang: “Knowing Kang was likely to be the next cross-movie villain and because he’s a time-traveling adversary that can travel back in time, it just made sense.
“I had this big multiversal war mythology that I came up with and presented it to our producers one day. They said yes, let’s try it. We knew that we would meet the man behind the curtain.
Loki returned to TVA to find a surprising twist. It appeared that he had been sent to another timeline. One where Mobius didn’t recognize him and where Kang was standing in the middle of the Time Keepers statue.
All that He Who Remains had warned of seems to have happened. According to Mobius the timeline has been branched more than sixty times. In Loki’s version, Kang is a brutal leader.
We now have multiple branches to time so this Kang version could be different from the Ant-Man one. We will likely see multiple versions of Kang, which could lead to a never-ending list of villains that can appear in many situations. This new villain has opened up the MCU.
What about the other characters on the show? Judge Renslayer set out to discover who caused the chaos on the sacred timeline. It remains to be seen if her search will lead her to Kang.
Sylvie, who had killed He Who Remains, was still in the Citadel. We imagine that the reunion between the two could not be successful next season due to their unique and strong bond.
Loki will be returning to the timeline with Mobius, which he knows, and trying to restore order from Kang in the second season. We’ll probably learn more about season 2 of Loki as phase 4 progresses in the MCU, given how this villain is tied into other films.
Loki season 2 cast & crew
The following cast members have been confirmed: Tom Hiddleston is Loki, Owen Wilson is Mobius, Sophia Di Martino is Sylvie/Lady Loki , Gugu Mbatha–Raw, Judge Ravonna Renslayer.
We wouldn’t be surprised if Jonathan Majors made an appearance, seeing as Kang is now the biggest bad.
It would be wonderful to see the supporting characters, such as Wunmi Moaku as Hunter B-15 and other Loki variants like Richard E. Grant (Old Man Loki), Jack Veal (Kid Loki) and Deobia Oparei (Boastful Loki).
We also expect Michael Waldron (head author) to return but have not yet received confirmation.
Showrunner Kate Herron has resigned. Herron spoke out to Deadline and stated that she had only planned to work one season, but that she has other projects she needs to complete.
Most episodes of season 2 will be directed by the Moon Knight crew Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead. They have previously collaborated on Somewhere in the Dirt and Spring, The Endless, and Synchronic.
