Avengers Endgame noticed 2012 alternate Loki escape with the Tesseract. What occurs subsequent would be the topic of the upcoming Loki Disney+ sequence, by which clearly the god of mischief might be meddling with time. In truth, the one footage we’ve seen of him was sporting a time jail uniform from Marvel comics’ Time Variance Authority.
Marvel followers have speculated that the Loki sequence might be a precursor to 2022’s Thor Love and Thunder.
After all, Jane Foster turns into the Mighty Thor within the upcoming film and with time being meddled with, it may effectively be set in one other actuality.
Whatever the case, Reddit person TheMediocreCritic argues that 2012 alternate Loki will try to alter the previous in his sequence, resulting in him turning into the Thor of his timeline.
And additionally crucially wielding Thor’s hammer Mjölnir, similar to Captain America did in Avengers Endgame.
The theorist argued: “Loki, the Asgardian trickster prince is an advanced god. He each loves and hates his large brother Thor.
“Loki’s jealousy of his brother is his driving pressure all through the films. So a lot in order that I consider that the fruits of that arc is Loki turning into his brother; turning into Thor.
“But how is that this attainable? We know that Loki met his premature demise by the fingers of Thanos in Infinity War, however we aren’t speaking about that Loki, we’re speaking about alternate timeline Loki.
“So this Loki is in a brand new timeline that’s separate and more and more completely different from the principle MCU timeline. In this timeline, Loki is the variable; he creates a brand new sequence of occasions inside this timeline. A sequence of occasions that may result in Loki the trickster turning into Loki prince of Asgard. And in his fingers, Mjölnir.”
They continued: “Loki escaped with the tesseract in 2012; subsequently, he isn’t apprehended by Thor, resulting in his imprisonment on Asgard. Loki, within the unique timeline, not solely saves Thor from the Kurse, however he saves Jane as effectively.
“Both Thors on this universe depend upon Loki saving them on this timeline. But, with Loki presumably roaming free within the alternate timeline, each characters could have perished by the hands of Malekith.
“It can be Loki that involves Thor’s assist in Ragnarok, bringing with him a military.
“Thor could also be alive in the principle timeline simply due to Loki’s intervention. Maybe with out Loki, there isn’t a Thor. So Asgard would want a prince to take Thor’s place.”
They added: “But why would unredeemed Loki assist out Odin and the Asgardians in any respect? Loki is offended and defeated in 2012. Why would he come to assistance from his individuals?
“It is as a result of at his core, Loki loves his brother and he loves his individuals. He can be determined for his adoptive father Odin’s respect. He is an efficient particular person and that doesn’t change due to the timeline; in reality, I feel that with out Thor within the image, Loki finds his true function because the adopted protector of Asgard. He could even be making an attempt to make issues proper in honour of the brother he betrayed.
“This could be the story of how a conniving trickster turns into worthy sufficient to elevate Mjölnir. If Thor dies on this timeline, it opens the right alternative for Loki to redeem himself. He would come again to Asgard after the loss of life of Thor on account of his absence. He would take up the rightful mantle of prince and work to regain the respect of his individuals and his father.
“He wouldn’t be worthy sufficient to elevate the hammer but, however he could be working in direction of it.”
Whatever the case, it actually appears to be like like Mjölnir, which was destroyed by Hela in Thor Ragnarok, might be returning some how.
Certainly, Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor might be wielding a model of the weapon in Thor Love and Thunder.
Just as Cap, and Fat Thor did in Avengers Endgame, earlier than Mjölnir was returned to 2014.
Loki streaming on Disney+ in early 2021, whereas Thor Love and Thunder hits cinemas on February 11, 2022.
