Following Loki’s multiverse-shattering season finale and the announcement of season 2, Tom Hiddleston is set to reprise his role as Loki in Doctor Strange 2.
Tom Hiddleston will play the God of Mischief in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, according to reports, following the season finale of Loki. As the MCU’s most anticipated upcoming title, the Benedict Cumberbatch-led sequel has been battling head-to-head with Spider-Man: No Way Home. Aside from what may be obtained from various statements from persons engaged in the projects, little is known about either film. After her Emmy-nominated tenure in WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen will reprise her role as Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange 2, however, it is unclear if she will be a friend or foe to the Sorcerer Supreme.
Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will all reprise their MCU roles as Wong, Christine Palmer, and Mordo, respectively, in the next film. Xochitl Gomez, who will play the Multiverse-hopping America Chavez, is a newcomer to the Marvel universe. The premise of Doctor Strange 2 has sparked a lot of speculation, but WandaVision’s post-credits scene seems to imply that it may involve Wanda’s children. Now, the Loki season 1 finale has revealed further information about the film’s direction.
THR predicts that Loki will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, following the highly anticipated conclusion. Hiddleston’s role as the God of Mischief will be reprised. Marvel has yet to clarify whether or not this is accurate, and no announcements have been made about other Loki figures that could appear in the sequel.
Marvel clearly has grander plans for the God of Mischief – Loki season 2 was announced during the series finale, but there’s even more in store for him in the future. After all, Jonathan Majors did make an appearance in Loki, which was a pleasant surprise. Even while the actor refuted reports that he was playing Kang the Conqueror, there was some truth to his statements. In Loki, Majors’ character is never known to as Kang; instead, he is referred to as He Who Remains, a variant of the time-traveling evil. The events of the finale eventually lead to the Sacred Timeline being broken, and Loki will most likely enter Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through this moment.
It was already known that the series will lead straight into the next film in the Sorcerer Supreme franchise, but no one could have predicted that it would be this direct. Kang might possibly be the villain in the Doctor Strange sequel, or at the very least make a presence in some manner. The conclusion of Loki’s storey has obvious ramifications for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, as well as the MCU as a whole. Kang the Conqueror is definitely being positioned as a major antagonist in a lot of projects, and it appears that Hiddleston’s Loki will play a significant role in these events as well.
