Kevin Feige has revealed exciting news about Disney + Loki and it’s interesting connection with Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness. As part of phase 4 in the MCU, both were announced earlier this summer to premiere in spring of 2021 as independent features with a closer look on their respective main characters. Fans can expect stories that not only explores the finer details of Loki or Doctor Strange’s personalities, but also establishes just how their characters better fit into the MCU.
Tom Hiddleston is our beloved trickster who’s making a comeback right after his escape in Avengers: Endgame. While we get the idea that it’s an in-depth continuation on Loki’s perspective, the show is also meant to answer questions like whether Loki is truly dead. Loki may have escaped with the Tesseract in Endgame, but his death in Infinity War left fans spiraling in disbelief.
Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness on the other hand will feature Benedict Cumberbatch in what will surprisingly be the MCU’s first horror film. Fellow stars like Elizabeth Olsen playing the Scarlet Witch are also highly anticipated to make a return. We don’t know how the two will meet or what the MCU is planning, we just know that Feige promises some on-screen interaction.
Without knowing the specifics quite yet, it’s easy to visualize the two characters together. The trickster who transcends different timelines with the Tesseract will likely bump into Doctor Strange’s movie, who of course, is in the multiverse of madness. The title might be a giveaway for now, but until then, fans are in delight for the two to interact– the God of Mischief, and the protector of the multiverse.
In addition to the more development on the MCU, Loki is also rumored to cover Jane Foster in gaining the Mjolnir in Thor: Love and Thunder. Naturally, he’d have to time travel from his world to Marvel Universe, and that’s exactly what we’ll get out of Loki and more of his mischievous adventures in early 2021.
