The MCU’s Multiverse is far wilder than anyone thought, according to Loki director Kate Herron. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Multiverse has finally arrived, and it’s partly due to Loki’s fault. Two different versions of the trickster god made their way to the Citadel at the End of Time, where they faced He That Remains, the deity who stopped the Multiverse from being created until now.
At the end of the first Multiverse war, He Who Remains, a version of Kang the Conqueror, was the last man standing. To avoid another Multiversal conflict, he formed the Time Variance Authority to trim branches of the Multiverse before they could become established.
He Who Remains, on the other hand, had lived for millennia and had become tired of this fate; as a result, he had duped Loki and Sylvie into coming to him, where he offered them a choice. They may either murder him or take his place, allowing a new Multiverse to arise. Sylvie chose the latter, and now the MCU is threatened by a Multiverse of madness.
Loki’s MCU Multiverse
Loki director Kate Herron revealed the MCU’s Multiverse is even more chaotic than fans may have thought in an interview with Murphy’s Multiverse, revealing – in detail – how the timeline branches link to one another.
Consider all of this through the eyes of Doctor Strange, the future Sorcerer Supreme determined to protect reality itself. He’d most likely only become aware of the Multiverse when big or minor invasions occurred. That could explain the Multiversal villains in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which feature performers like Alfred Molina reprising roles from non-MCU Spider-Man flicks.
However, the most serious threat to Doctor Strange would not be a minor incursion; it would be a massive one if two of Herron’s “branches” connected. Anything may happen in that scenario, and it would all be Loki’s responsibility in some ways.
