Tom Hiddleston’s Loki fans are jumping up and down as they learn that, apparently, Loki Season 2 is greenlit for filming June 2022.
The Loki Season 2 begins filming a month after Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness release.
At the moment, Marvel is keeping that release date.
Season 1 in a Nutshell
The story picks up at the point where Loki stole the Tesseract during the events of the Avengers: Endgame.
The God of Mischief inadvertently creates a different timeline.
This in turn calls the attention of the Time Variance Authority or the TVA.
The TVA labeled Loki a “time variant”.
The TVA Law “prunes” time variants thus erasing them from existence.
Situations arise that the TVA gave Loki the chance to help and fix the timeline.
Loki then encounters various versions of himself.
He even falls in love with one and of course manage to create a bigger problem.
Michael Waldron head writes and produces the series based on the Marvel Comics with music by Natalie Holt.
Naturally, Tom Hiddleston is Loki and a cast of actors namely: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Tara Strong, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Sasha Lane, Jack Veal, DeObia Oparei, Richard E. Grant, and Jonathan Majors.
Things Happened and Branches Grew
Loki Season 1 ends with The Sacred Timeline broken.
Loki is practically displaced to everything and everyone he knew.
Nobody knew him nor do they know of his encounter with He Who Remains.
It leaves a whole set of questions and opens doors of possibilities so wide that Marvel can now bring a lot of their characters into the fold.
Variants and Multiple Timelines vs The Multiverse
I understand that the mess the God of Mischief made involved that one universe.
All the branches and timelines that deviate are from that one universe.
Moreover, variants are from the branches and different timelines from that one universe.
Can Loki’s mess really be contained in those versions of the universe?
Will the effects of the broken Sacred Timeline affect what the Multiverse is heading to?
Or is the weakened separation of the Multiverse an effect of the broken Sacred Timeline itself?
Then again, this is just me.
All This Mess and Where is this Headed?
Different timelines, variants, versions of reality, multiverse and imminent intergalactic war.
Various recent MCU projects and those that are on queue position the MCU for something bigger.
Catastrophic and impending doom for several universes call different heroes into one arena.
The comic book world has done this one too many times.
Names of Galactus, Kang the Conqueror, Beyonders, Spectrum and many others arise as MCU dives deep in these infinite possibilities.
So Let the Films Roll
We can now assume that the script is clearly on it’s last pages of writing.
Season 2 starts filming this summer confirmed to take place in Pinewood Studios in England.
We take comfort in knowing Tom Hiddleston will be shooting again.
Loki Season 2 is now a sure thing.
