‘Loki’ Season 2 Rumored To Bring In A Barrage Of Kang Variants

The two trailers for “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” have made one thing clear: Kang is here to wreak havoc on the multiverse and the Marvel heroes. The first one to go up against Kang the Conqueror will be Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man. But who will be the next MCU character to meet Kang and possibly his other variants? As per a new rumor, that’s going to be “Loki” in the next season of his Disney+ show. Let us dive deep into the rumor that has gripped the MCU fandom.


Kang Variants To Appear In ‘Loki’ Season 2

We saw the first variant of Kang, called He Who Remains, in the finale of “Loki” season 1. Next, we will see the warrior version of Kang, called The Conqueror, in “Ant-Man 3.” But where will we see Kang after that? As per Twitter scooper Daniel Richtman, it’s going to be in the second season of “Loki.” Richtman shared with his Patreon subscribers that Jonathan Majors has filmed multiple scenes for “Loki” season 2.

So it seems like Tom Hiddleston’s Loki will be meeting more Kangs. Also, this was expected because the ending of the first season set it up. But when will he meet those variants? At the end of the season again? Also, will season 2 be connected to “Ant-Man 3”? Also, if he does meet the variants of Kang the Conqueror, that will probably mean that Scott Lang didn’t make it out of the Quantum Realm. Also, will “Loki” season 2 be the next MCU project where Kang will appear after “Ant-Man 3”? After all, it doesn’t feel like he will appear in “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3” or “The Marvels.” But this isn’t the only thing that Daniel Richtman shared.


The MCU Will Introduce The Time Loom

The scooper also shared another interesting detail. Richtman said that season 2 would bring a new concept to the MCU: the Time Loom. He elaborated that this time loom will use the time stream’s energy to power the TVA. Viewers should note that the concept of a time loom doesn’t exist in the pages of Marvel comics. So this is going to be a concept created just for the MCU. Fans have speculated that the concept will probably refer to the Moirai from Greek mythology.

In Greek mythology, the Moirai/ the Fates are the three goddesses in charge of determining the fate of a human. These goddesses are named Clotho, the one who spins the thread of life; Lachesis, the one who spins all the actions and events in our lives; and Atropos, the one who cuts the thread of life. Atropos is also called the Inflexible because she cannot be swayed from her decision to end a life. Even though the MCU mainly subscribes to Norse mythology, it has also introduced Greek mythology in “Thor: Love and Thunder,” where we saw Hercules and Zeus. However, the mythology they should refer to shouldn’t be a problem because there’s a similar concept in Norse mythology as well. Instead of Moirai or the Fates, they are referred to as the Norns. The three goddesses are called Urðr (the past), Verðandi (the present), and lastly, Skuld (the future). So they spin the loom of human life. In season one of “Loki,” we were introduced to the three TimeKeepers.

These Time Keepers turned out to be androids made by the Kang variant He Who Remains. They were just figureheads who served as only his mouthpieces. But one has to wonder if the concept of the Time Loom will anyway be connected to them and if the MCU will use mythology to enforce the idea. But not all fans think the same. Others think that Marvel is borrowing the idea of a loom from the “Doctor Who” franchise. The “loom” refers to a birthing machine that continues the generations of the Time Lords. However, it’s not clear how such a thing will connect to “Loki” since the only thing that seems similar right now is the idea of time between the two franchises.


The Phase 5 Of The MCU

Phase 4 received a lot of criticism for its subpar plots and poor CGI. Also, fans were upset over the sheer number of projects Marvel Studios released in a short time and the lack of interconnectedness between them. Many felt that they were watching stand-alone projects. However, that was to be expected since Marvel Studios was laying the groundwork for its next big event. Here’s hoping that not only will Marvel Studios correct its mistakes by properly planning out the shows and movies of Phase 5 but also ensure that they have great writing and CGI. As for how Kang will ultimately influence the plot? We will have to keep an eye on that.
