Disney+’s ‘Loki’ May Introduce Kang the Conqueror to the MCU

 
 
Marvel’s coming Disney+ Loki show may set up Kang the Conqueror as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s next big bad. The show, starring Tom Hiddleston, will see the God of Mischief embody his nefarious persona from 2012’s The Avengers. A more reformed version of the character was killed by Thanos at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War. However, Avengers: Endgame revived the 2012 Loki when he escaped with the Tesseract.

That version of Loki will lead his own Disney+ series, using the Tesseract (the Space Stone) to meddle with history. After fans were given their first tease of Loki via an image of the character in the 1970s, an MCU Disney+ Super Bowl commercial briefly showed Loki sporting a Time Variance Authority jumpsuit. In the comics, the TVA is an organization that monitors the multiverse and subsequent timelines, eliminating those deemed too dangerous.

Loki will reportedly introduce Kang the Conqueror, a time traveler who comes into contact with the TVA on more than one occasion. In the comics, Kang has close ties to both the Avengers and Fantastic Four. 

 

Loki is slated to begin airing on Disney+ sometime in 2021.
