When Loki showed up in Avengers: Endgame, I can speak for everyone that we were insanely excited to even see a small glimpse of the God of Mischief. But, I am probably not the only one who thought that something would come from the 2012 Battle of New York scene where things went a little differently than they had in the original Avengers film. What I mean is, when Loki grabbed the Tesseract and disappeared, which then forced Captain America and Iron Man to find another way of getting the Tesseract and more Pym particles.
While we all speculated that either Loki would return in the film or this was his way of creating a different timeline, we had no way of really knowing until now. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirm:
“The intent was that he was going to correct the past timelines at the point that the stones left,” Joe Russo explained to Business Insider. “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.”
Anthony Russo added:
“We’re dealing with this idea of multiverses and branched realities, so there are many realities.”
The multiverse is something that is being touched upon, especially in the latest trailer for Spide-rMan: Far From Home where Mysterio claims that he is from another universe and Nick Fury adding that Thanos’ snap created portals to other universes.
This new timeline could potentially open up possibilities for Loki’s solo series on Disney+, which would make a world of sense. What do you think?
