Marvel’s plans for the Avengers have inadvertently spoiled the ending of Loki season 2. Following the demise of He Who Remains, the central character, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston), is set to return for another season of his Disney+ show, accompanied by Owen Wilson’s character, Mobius. A teaser in the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hints that Loki’s new mission involves dealing with Victor Timely, a variant of Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror.
Marvel has set the stage for the Avengers to face Kang in Phase 6’s Avengers: The Kang Dynasty through the movie Quantumania. However, Loki season 1 is also credited for paving the way for the Multiverse Saga’s main antagonist. According to the He Who Remains variant of Kang, his death will unleash numerous versions of him across the multiverse. A particular Kang variant appears to have manipulated time and taken control of the TVA, leading to the circumstances Loki will confront in the next season.
The Loki season 2 trailer supports the idea that Loki and Mobius must rectify the chaos caused by Kang’s time-traveling actions. Notably, Mobius is seen heading into space, presumably to mend the fractured Sacred Timeline. Given the ending of season 1, where the TVA’s purpose was altered due to He Who Remains’ demise, this objective makes sense.
The method Loki and Mobius will employ to restore the Sacred Timeline remains unclear. However, Kang’s Victor Timely variant is believed to hold the solution, as indicated by their search for him in Quantumania and his presence in the trailer. This variant might trigger the “utter destruction” mentioned in the trailer. Regardless, stopping Kang’s multiverse disruptions will likely form the core of the upcoming season’s storyline.
Although Loki season 2 has yet to premiere, it’s evident that Loki and Mobius won’t completely resolve the Kang-related multiverse crisis. The impending need for the Avengers to save the multiverse in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars implies that the situation persists. While Loki’s actions contribute to the larger battle for the multiverse’s fate, Sylvie’s actions in season 1 will likely remain a looming threat by the second season’s conclusion.
