When the Multiverse was first introduced as a concept to the MCU, viewers knew that things could get weird in an instant. Marvel Studios wasted no time proving it when they came out Loki. The TVA of the series and the introduction of the Variants both took the audience into the depths of the strange. After all, there is a crocodile Loki; most wouldn’t have thought that would have existed ten years ago.
With how strange developments were, could a sequel to the series unfold on its own? What does that even entail?
Even so, there were Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which has just been released. While it’s not everyone’s favorite MCU movie, there’s definitely a lot in it for Loki a run for its money, such as the former Sorcerer Supreme daydreaming about entering his own corpse. So it’s possible at least.
But does the writer behind both of these projects feel that Marvel will aim to go even crazier?
Will part 2 do anything strange?
In an interview with Polygon, Loki (season 1) and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Writer Michael Waldron was asked if Tom Hiddleston’s streaming series would get even weirder in its second season.
In response, Waldron, who executive produced the second season, admitted how he “[doesn’t] know if [it] can go any more exotic [they did] in part 1,” but that “[they] always find a way to overcome [themselves]. ”
“I don’t know if I could go any weirder than we went in season 1… we had a crocodile drinking from a kids pool. That feeling is like Mount Everest’s, weird! I think there’s a lot of opportunity there. We’re always looking to get ahead of ourselves, but hopefully, it’s always driven by character. And yes, I learned through this movie again, no idea is too crazy. You could write Stephen Strange in possession of his own corpse, and maybe you would shoot it dead. That encourages me to be bold, which is good.”
For all the crazy things that have happened in the recent movie, Waldron has vaguely teased how “Incidentally nothing in the movie:”
“… There is nothing random in the movie. [Marvel Studios president] Kevin [Feige] definitely aware of the meaning of things [there], You know? They are not the souls of damned people just for the sake of souls for the sake of damnation. “
Loki’s Weird Season 2 Future
Another way to think about it all is how Loki laid the groundwork for the world they were exploring, something that is often the most time-consuming part of a new series. So with that there, that leaves plenty of room to do… well… whatever.
A lot of madness is sure to come from the new Loki Variations. Maybe fans will even see characters like Alligator Loki or Throg again — after all, Chris Hemsworth managed to voice it. Why not take advantage of that?
The second part is a few weeks away from production in London. This potentially puts the project’s premiere in the summer of 2023 – post-release Ant-Man: Quantumaniawill see the return of Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror.
