Marvel Studios’ Loki solo series is aiming to change the entire landscape of the MCU. Officially announced back at San Diego Comic-Con, the Loki solo series will follow Loki after the events of Avengers: Endgame, and what mischief he gets into as he is now in sole possession of the Tesseract aka the Space Stone.
Also officially announced at SDCC was the WandaVision Disney+ series. Adding to that announcement was the series’ direct connection to the newly announced Doctor Strange (2016) sequel, Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Darkness. Not only that but Scarlet Witch herself Elizabeth Olsen would also be making an appearance in the film, starring alongside Benedict Cumberbatch.
Speaking with Bloomberg, the newly appointed CCO of Marvel Entertainment, Kevin Feige revealed that the Loki series will contain a direct connection to the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel.
“I’m not sure we’ve actually acknowledged that before. But it does,”
This comes as a surprise to many due to the way Feige revealed the news. There was no mention of this back at SDCC nor has Feige revealed much about the Loki series apart from what’s already public knowledge.
It’ll be interesting to see how and if the Loki series will also connect to WandaVision. If so, it could make Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Darkness much more epic…or horrific. Doctor Strange 2 is poised to be Marvel Studios’ first horror film and is set to introduce the villain Nightmare.
Loki and WandaVision will premiere on Disney+ in 2021. Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Darkness is slated for a May 2021 release.
