Loki’s post-credits scene of the season one finale combines two Marvel traditions. After all this time, we finally got to know Loki’s Glorious Purpose. Two variants of the Loki variant travelled to the end of time where they finally discovered who was behind the Time Variance Authority (TVA). And this is truly where the MCU’s Multiverse will change forever.
However, that is not a win because, as all of us suspected, Kang the Conqueror revealed that he was the last survivor of the Multiversal war. He was the one who won over all the other variants. The Multiverse will be in a state of chaos without the TVA to guard the timeline. This will be because of the creation of multiple timelines and other variants of one variant will be emerging. According to He Who Remains, every variant will try to dominate the other.
Comic book readers might have immediately recognized this twisted origin story for Kang the Conqueror. The character is played by Jonathan Majors who will all know is already returning in Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania. Marvel confirmed that this Multiversal arc is just getting started because they also revealed another major thing in the post-credits scene. Loki will be returning for season 2.

Marvel’s Cooler Reference For The First Time.
Coming back to the post-credits scene, it combines two Marvel traditions. The scene reminds us of Kevin Feige’s love of cinema where he had admitted as a film nerd, he never wants it to end. He said, “So when I started making movies, I’d be like that’d be fun to do. We didn’t wanna put [the Nick Fury scene] in the body of the film ’cause we thought it would be distracting. So we thought we’d put it at the very end of the credits for people who like me when I was a kid could be rewarded for staying.”
Marvel has time and again teased their upcoming projects and the future of the MCU. They usually included a tag that announced the return of the hero. For their third web series, Marvel decided to combine two approaches and use the post-credits scene to officially announce Loki season 2.
Marvel always has few scenes at the end to tease the coming of the next venture. However, this is an amusing approach as it does not give anything away. This allows Marvel to have creative freedom as well but this only proved how adaptive they are. The MCU’s Multiversal arc is expected to continue through Marvel’s What If..?, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This means the story will have moved on in a much wider context until we get the second season of Loki.
