A Beloved Marvel Superhero Could Come Back for New Loki Series

Avengers: Endgame not only gave us an epic end to the Infinity saga, but it also closed the book on several characters’ storylines, paving the way for a new generation of Marvel superheroes to lead the MCU in a new direction

 

WARNING: MASSIVE SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS: ENDGAME

 

After Iron Man saved the universe by using Thanos’ infinity gauntlet against him, Captain America went back in time to place the infinity stones back in their rightful place in the current timeline. But rather than come back to the present, Steve Rogers stayed in the past to be with his lover Peggy Carter. He then passed on the mantle of Captain America to his friend Sam Wilson.

 

Despite closing out his storyline, Steve Rogers might still have some story left to tell in the MCU.

 

As part of the new Disney+ streaming service, a television series centered on Loki, Thor’s half-brother played by Tom Hiddleston, is in development. How a Loki series would work after his death in Infinity War was a mystery until now.

 

In an interview with Business Insider, directors Joe and Anthony Russo explained that a loose end for Endgame could lead to a new plot for the upcoming series. When traveling back in time to 2012 (during the events of the first Avengers film), the heroes accidentally let past Loki escape with one of the Infinity Stones they were trying to recover. According to the Russo brothers, this would create a new timeline that Captain America would have to rectify during his mission.

 

“Loki, when he teleports away with the Time Stone, would create his own timeline. It gets very complicated, but it would be impossible for [Cap] to rectify the timeline unless he found Loki. The minute that Loki does something as dramatic as take the Space Stone, he creates a branched reality.”

 

Of course, this is just speculation and it hasn’t been confirmed, but it would be amazing to see Chris Evans in the MCU one last time.

 

Do you believe Cap will make a return?

Rejoice! Loki Comes Back to Life in New Comic Series

Loki, the cunning god of mischief and half-brother to Thor, has always been a fan favorite in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, he met his untimely demise at the hands of Thanos in Infinity War. But don’t worry Loki lovers, the man lives on in the comics.

Marvel Comics announced that a new Loki comic series will launch in July. This new series will be a spin-off of the War for the Realms story arc, in which Thor was caught in the middle of a massive war between all the ten realms. Asgard fell, Mjolnir was destroyed and Loki gets eaten alive by his own father, the King of the Frost Giants.

Since the new Loki series takes place after the War for the Realms, which hasn’t finished its run yet, it is unclear how Loki survived his death. Marvel isn’t telling, so we’ll just have to read it and find out.

Here is the cover of the first issue featuring Loki and Mjolnir. How Mjolnir got restored, and the reason Loki is holding it, looks like another mystery just waiting to be solved:
