RUMOR: Tom Hiddleston in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?
In an article on THR that mentioned the fact that Marvel Studios’ Loki’s sophomore season had been announced during a mid-credits sequence for the first season finale, it was stated that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is expected to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The article included no further details on this expectation, beyond the fact that Marvel had neither confirmed nor denied the statement, but everyone is reporting on the rumor, so we will to!
As you might expect, Marvel Blog True Believers, this article includes spoilers for the first season finale of Loki, so leave this page now if you want to avoid them!
The End of Time
In the first season finale of Loki, we saw Our Loki Variant (Hiddleston) discovers that “He Who Remains” (Jonathan Majors), aka Kang the Conqueror, is the man behind the curtain – it was very Oz the Great and Powerful, but not so Oz that it convinces me that Loki will be appearing in the sequel to Doctor Strange.
Although He Who Remains offered Our Loki Variant and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) the opportunity to take over as the head of the timeline, Sylvie instead sent Our Loki Variant back to the Time Variance Authority through a Timedoor before executing He Who Remains.
As a result, we immediately saw the branching timelines outside the Citadel at the End of Time begin to grow, interconnecting and crossing over with one another.
However, whether or not this is what causes the events in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, or the situation in the upcoming animated Disney+ series Marvel’s What If…?, remains to be seen.
Is Loki in Multiverse of Madness?
Is it possible that we might be seeing Loki (or perhaps a Loki Variant) in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? Will Loki meet Ash Williams if that’s the case?
