The God Of Mischief’s New MCU Role May Have Been Revealed And It’s A Game-Changer

With only two episodes of Loki left, theories and speculation about how the series will end are all over social media. Over the weekend, some promo art surfaced showcasing the God of Mischief’s new costume and, after yesterday’s mid-season trailer, some fans are beginning to piece this puzzle together. 

As you can see in the post below, those green tendrils of energy flowing throughout the Multiverse appear to be emanating from Loki and his new costume. 

The Asgardian also seems to be in He Who Remains’ Citadel at the End of Time (look at the glowing cracks on the steps), suggesting Thor’s adoptive brother will ultimately take Kang’s place as ruler of, not a singular Sacred Timeline, but the entire Multiverse. 

We’re sure there will be more to it than that – we’re curious how it happens and what it means for the Multiverse Saga moving forward – though this is still a game-changing move. It’s also a strong indication Loki will be a crucial part of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars

Don’t forget, He Who Remains wanted Loki to take his place after growing tired of keeping an eye on the Sacred Timeline. That wish now looks set to become a reality, though Loki wouldn’t be Loki if he didn’t do things his way (and in this case, it could be allowing the Multiverse Saga to flourish). 

Do you think Loki is about to become the Multiverse’s new ruler? Feel free to let us know your thoughts and theories in the comments section below.

Loki season 2 will pick up in the aftermath of the shocking season finale when Loki finds himself in a battle for the soul of the Time Variance Authority. Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.

The series stars Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Rafael Casal, Tara Strong, Kate Dickie, Liz Carr, Neil Ellice, with Jonathan Majors, Ke Huy Quan and Owen Wilson.

Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Dan Deleeuw and Kasra Farahani direct episodes. The Head Writer is Eric Martin.

The first four episodes of Loki season 2 are now streaming on Disney+.
