Welcome to the Heavy Spoilers show, I’m your host, Paul, and in this video, we’re breaking down the finale of Loki Season 2.
Episode 6 is now out on Disney Plus, and we’ve got a big video to talk about all the Easter eggs, hidden details, and comic callbacks. We also now know how this sets up the future of the MCU and have a rough idea of where it could all be going for the upcoming films. I won’t be covering The Marvels’ ending in case you haven’t seen it, but later on, we might give some theories for Deadpool 3 and Avengers: Secret Wars.
That will all be at the end of the video, though, and last week saw Loki getting the band back together to travel back to the loom to stop it from self-destructing.
‘LOKI’ SEASON 2 FINALE EXPLAINED
That takes us into this episode, in which we get a lot of major revelations. For the final time, I’m going to need you to hit the thumbs up button and don’t forget to subscribe because we still have a lot of comic content coming soon. With that out of the way, a huge thank you for clicking this; now let’s get into The Loki Season 2 Finale.
Now, as always, we begin with the Marvel Studios logo; however, here something’s different. Rather than progressing forward as we normally do, we start at the end and then work backwards.
This carries on in one continuous shot, taking us from where the loom is and then working towards the control room. This point of the loom is very much the goal, and it’s where things all change later in the entry. Now, this opening shot reminds me a lot of the one from episode 5 when we have a journey into the void. It just adds so much to the opening of this entry, and we then see Loki slip into place. This is a different angle to what we saw last week, and we never caught Victor going down the stairs. Thus, I believe that that scene was from his point of view, with him looking up and then seeing the god.
Now, the episode itself is titled “Glorious Purpose,” and we see him achieve this in the end. Loki gets himself a throne and all in all becomes the man who would be king.
This is mentioned by name later on, and shoutouts to Simon A. Burman for pointing out it’s a reference to the 1975 Sean Connery film.
A Throne is something that he’s wanted his entire life, and even in Dark World, he said something foreshadowing this.
The first episode of season 1 was also called “Glorious Purpose” as well, very much completing this entire ouroboros.
Now, things don’t go too well in the opening, and we see as Victor is killed once more. We then get a fifth of Beethoven with a montage of the music constantly repeating over and over again. This music was used during Saturday Night Fever, and it’s such a funky way to add to the montage aesthetic.
This reminded me a lot of the ending of Doctor Strange, in which the doc ended up using the time stone to loop his time with Dormammu. Loki becoming what he does at the end might even explain why the time stone is green, and as I’ve been saying, it’s all connected.
Realizing that by the time Victor goes to the bridge, it’s going to be too late, Loki then timeslips back to the war room to grab Victor earlier. This also allows him to see Ms. Minutes and get things in motion far earlier, but it’s still not good enough. Love how we can also still catch the skin written on the monitor, which Mobius of course wrote back in episode 1.
Victor is killed again and again, which… way to keep letting us know Kang is a threat, lads.
Now, earlier in the season, we watched the death of Ms. Minutes.
“You’ll never be him.”
In hindsight, I kinda wonder who she was talking about because she could’ve been talking about Kang but also about Loki due to what we have happen at the end.
Now, so far, the series has been operating on the bootstrap paradox, even down to it being elements of the show’s plot itself. I’ve talked about that theory to death, so I won’t bore you about it, but it basically involves a time loop in which there’s not really a start or end point. It normally involves someone receiving knowledge from the future that tells them what to do to navigate the future. They then use time travel to send this information back to themselves so that they can carry on the loop that leads to them sending the information back in the first place.
It’s something that Dark worked with a lot, and the recent series Bodies also deals with a similar sort of plot device.
Definitely recommend checking them both out, but the function of time travel has switched from that for this finale.
Now we operate with rules similar to the butterfly effect, in which one’s able to travel back to certain points in their life. Time is obviously viewed in a linear manner by humans, but this theorizes that one’s able to go back to certain points within their own life with the knowledge that they attained in the future. This is a similar thing to what Doctor Manhattan had in Watchmen and also Amy Adams’s character in Arrival.
Now, it both still has this cause and effect feeling, as the knowledge needs to be attained in the future to then go back and change the past, which then leads to the future events happening anyway. It’s lots of timey whimey wibbly wobbly stuff, and there’s actually the theory in quantum mechanics that the butterfly effect won’t change anything and that time will heal itself anyway.
This could lead to He Who Remains still being out on top, and perhaps this is all part of its own loop.
Now, at this point, Loki goes back even earlier to when they first brought out the Model of the Loom.
OB is once again really embarrassed that Victor’s seeing his work isn’t amazing, and it’s such a funny scene to watch.
They kinda replay moments of that scene, but this time the dialogue’s really rushed.
Now, this model actually is an Easter egg that we missed in Episode 4. There they said, “it’s a crude model,” but we could see that it was actually pretty good. This was a reference to Back to the Future when Doc Brown said, “it’s a crude model.”
Even though the lines are the same, everyone’s kinda confused about what’s happening, and they can’t enjoy what’s happening ‘cos it feels like it’s all a rush. Kinda felt like it’s like when you just wanna skip through life, but in the end, you realize the He Who Remains were the friends you made along the way. At this point, Loki realizes he needs to learn everything that OB knows, and though it’s gonna take centuries, he ends up committing to it.
Now, huge shoutout to you guys for last week pointing out the origins of OB’s real name AD Doug. Ryan Arey pointed out this is likely a nod to Douglas Adams, the author of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. That explained 42 was the answer to everything, and protocol 42 was what He Who Remains used to wipe everyone’s memories.
However, this could potentially be Arthur Douglas, who in the comics was Moon Dragon’s father. Though she was introduced in Guardians 3, this may have been a nod to where The High Evolutionary got the girl from. Arthur was also killed by Thanos, which may have happened to OB if he’d remained on the timeline. AD is, of course, used in time as well, with us using it to date things opposite to BC.
His room looked exactly the same as the TVA, and he even used a taser on Loki in the same way that a pruning stick would be used by the TVA.
Now, from here, we cut to centuries later and see Loki guiding Victor into the machine. Man’s memory must be amazing ‘cos I can’t even remember what happened in last week’s episode, but Loki remembers all the stuff he needs to. It’s clear that he also has been through this a lot of times before because he talks about where he needs to tape the suit. This includes one of the crack parts of the faceplate, which Mobius also had to do in the season’s first episode.
Victor repeats the line, “time to be brave,” but again, everything’s kind of in fast forward.
Loki’s clearly learned a lot too, and I love this bit.
It just shows how much he’s been through it and is losing his patience but doesn’t wanna clue anyone in to what’s really going on.
Now, Loki at this point instructs Victor to hit the button, but it just won’t work. Kinda reminds me of when I tell people to hit the thumbs up, but that doesn’t happen either. Got like 300,000 views and 10,000 likes; what the bloody hell’s that?
Nah, we appreciate it, but this shows that Victor isn’t the right person for the job, and though it works, the struggles here hint it has to be someone else.
Now, this foreshadowing of Loki taking over was even shown in the first shot, where we had Loki running in front of the statue of Kang. His face then started to crumble, and that’s sort of been a metaphor for what’s been happening in this series.
Now, Victor fires it off and manages to finally get back, which is when Victor says, “This is actually 19th-century slang, and it basically means to give yourself a pat on the back.
However, unfortunately, the loom still ends up exploding, which makes Loki realize that all those centuries were kinda for nothing.
It needed to happen to get what we get, but yeah, just a kick in the teeth to see this happen. The monitor sparks up, and we see that the energy is also green, which in itself is, of course, one of Loki’s colors. I kinda wonder if greens laced throughout the TVA for this reason, with even the key lime pie being that color too.
The branches then expand due to a scaling problem, and the loom can’t accommodate an infinitely scaling multiverse.
Once more, the loom explodes, and Loki ends up returning to the Citadel, where he tries to change things. We get a sort of replay of the scene before the timeslip takes him back, but he’s able to change what he said. Loki says, “the last thing I want is a throne,” which, ey, we’ll see about that.
I love how He Who Remains is just kinda cackling in the back, and he constantly says, “see you soon,” which was the taunt that he used in his dying breath.
Now, He Who Remains is still in his Immortus get-up, which is the last known version of Kang. All Kangs eventually become Immortus, and the comics could hint to us what happened. Immortus eventually brought all the council together and gave the idea this was to stand as a united front. However, in the end, that was a f**king lie, and he’d done this to be able to take them all out at once. So him wearing this makes a lot of sense, and I think he’s the real Immortus rather than the one in Quantumania.
Now, in the elevator, he also sees Loki put away his sword, which kinda tips him off that something’s changed.
That’s very much what we’re seeing here, with the loop of season 2 all being part of the plan.
Just in the same way that episode 1 had Ravonna explaining the Avengers were always meant to change time, Loki was pretty much always meant to do this.
“Can We Get Some Toast” did a graphic of how the show worked, and what we have is season 1 ending by creating this loop. The loop itself was always meant to happen, but it’s eventual outcome was always gonna be that it ended with Loki going back to this point.
From here, things would then change and be able to continue to what we have in the show.
Shoutouts to Josh at Den of Nerds, who predicted that this was all gonna be an illusion. This was because the floor in the hologram made it look like it had a triangle, whereas in the real room, it was a Necker square. A Necker square is an optical illusion, possibly hinting at what happened.
The battle is really a big thing for the show, and I love all the action that we see happening. The sword-throwing magic, it’s all spot on, and season 2’s sort of been a mirror of season 1.
We had Loki in both arriving at the TVA and not really understanding what was going on. They’d then team up with their variant, and bombings would happen, carried out by a nefarious head.
Next, we’d go to a location before a character was pruned and sent into the void. Mobius was pruned in episode 4, which was mirrored by Ravonna in episode 4 of season 2. That would then end with a big cliffhanger, with episode 5 showing us it was not as it seemed.
Finally, episode 6 would culminate at the citadel, and the shows just so well-structured.
When Loki asks He Who Remains why he doesn’t fight back, he then realizes that he’s been through this before and finally stops things to confront him. It just kinda him mocking him with him also stating that he paved the road. This is something he said in season one, and our survey says…that it was him.
Now, our survey says is a little joust he puts out, and in the UK, that would be referencing Family Fortunes. I think in the US, it’s called Family Feud, but you American peeps, come up, help a guy out with his breakdown, let me know what it is if that’s wrong.
Now, if you’ve been enjoying the videos for the past six weeks and want to help support the channel, then make sure you pick up our Loki-inspired T-shirt on our merch store below the video. This contains all our latest designs, like our classic movie breakdown one as well, and it’s the best way to support the channel. We also have the join button as well, which is basically our Patreon that will get you access to some of our videos before anyone else.
Also, I’ve been told to tell people to stop going on to ace cafe and using the code acespoilers to get 50% off. It was a joke, mate; it was just a joke; just chill.
Now He Who Remains also talks about reincarnation…baby, which is the same line he said in the season 1 finale. He’s really the devil, and it’s with this that Loki steps up to the plate and reveals it isn’t the first time he’s been through this. Stopping time, he shows that he’s mastered it with He Who Remains warping Sylvie out of there.
He Who Remains sees all and mocks Victor’s stutter and talks about the failsafe of the loom.
We discover how the loom actually works, with it just deleting the branches that aren’t supposed to be there, except for the sacred timeline. I feel like He Who Remains has also already encountered Loki before and that he’s seen him kill countless of his variants.
I feel like what we get in the end is that it may be Loki who goes toe to toe with him either in Kang Dynasty or potentially during the events of Secret Wars.
Either way, the outcome of the equation remains the same.
HE WHO REMAINS IN THE ‘LOKI’ SEASON 2 FINALE
Love the way he repeats the word “remains” as well, letting us know why he always wins.
At this point, Loki sees the equation on the wall and says that he’ll break things. However, Loki doesn’t seem willing to make the tough choice, as doing this will ruin all his happy moments and destroy his friends too. Not even the sacred timeline will be safe, but Loki promises to find another way.
At this point, He Who Remains brings back Sylvie, which gives Loki the option to make the hard choice.
From this point, we go back to episode 1 of season 1 and catch Loki in the time theatre. Him returning to this was actually foreshadowed last week with the time-slipping, as at one point he came back here. These were all important locations throughout the character’s lives, with this also being a defining one for him.
He promises to claim his throne again, tying back to that line from Thor: The Dark World.
On the desk, we can also see a can of Josta cola, which was an old cola brand that went out of business. Obviously, the TVA have access to all time, hence why they’re able to get it.
This sort of turns into a therapy session, but obviously, we’re with Season 1 Mobius. He’s still indoctrinated and is just pruning because he thinks that’s the right thing to do.
Mobius tells him the story of someone who was responsible for 5000 deaths in the Black Sea.
Going out to prune them, he discovered it was an 8-year-old boy and it’s very much a sort of ‘would you kill Hitler as a baby if you could go back in time’ thing.
The kid wasn’t really doing anything, and the hunter refused to make the tough choice, and thus things went awry.
In the end, we learn Mobius was that guy, and I think the two boys made him stop because he had two sons. Though his memory’s been erased, you can’t change a person’s nature, and it’s such a telling thing for Mobius’ character.
His partner who did it is revealed to be Ravonna, and we saw in her past how she brought in a young Sylvie. However, she too hesitated and let her go, and I think her being a teacher may have been what stayed her hand.
Realizing there’s no comfort and that you just choose your burden, Loki then slips to the end of episode 5. He stops reality from falling apart, he takes Sylvie outside time so the pair can have a conversation. Telling her that it’s designed to protect the sacred timeline and that she has to die so that she can’t kill He Who Remains in the first place. It’s sort of like the grandfather paradox, with Loki realizing that there’s hope he can replace things with something better.
Now the darker side to Loki being in control was actually foreshadowed a lot throughout the season. Even back in the first entry, we watched as Loki was trying to rationalize why He Who Remains was doing what he did.
he was the devil Calling him the devil, he also pointed out that he was also a sort of ‘better the devil you know’ leader. Though he’d stripped away free will, the other option was far worse. Kang’s multiversal war would ravage across every reality and lead to trillions and trillions of lives being lost due to the amount of destroyed timelines there’d be.
Loki has always been the perfect candidate to become Loki-who-remains, and him taking over the role was even something he argued for at the end of season 1. Sylvie ended up killing He Who Remains and kicking him back in time, but still, his choice was always obvious.
On top of that, Earth 616 Dan pointed out on our last video how similar Loki was to Kang when dealing with Don. He promised to drop him back at his home the moment that he left so he could be with his kids again.
This is similar to how Kang promised Janet that he’d return her to Hope if she helped him out. Both of them are kind of deals with the devils, and these Faustian offers, of course, never really play out the way you’d expect. Janet would’ve had to allow Kang to wipe out countless timelines, and in the end, she wouldn’t have even ended up with her hope. Mobius is in a similar boat, and he’ll just be serving the TVA until the end of time.
Now at this point, he warps back to the end of episode 4, and he decides to be the one that goes out on the walkway.
Also, huge shoutouts to Simon again for pointing out there’s the saying on the wall, “For All Time Always,” which, when broken down to its acronym FATA in destiny, means Latin.
Now the reason that Loki can survive this radiation is because he’s a god. Even things like Infinity War showed Thor could survive out in space, and due to their density and lifespan, it’s very difficult to kill them…which we’ve seen with Loki hundreds of times at this point.
This shows that it was always meant to be his destiny and explains why he’s worthy whereas He Who Remains isn’t.
Now this bridge itself also somewhat hints at Loki leading as it even resembles elements of the Bifrost. The Bifrost is based on Asgardian designs, which this too also has itself. Loki himself had a transformative moment on a bridge in the first Thor, and now it’s coming full circle to capitalize on that.
Walking along, we see his clothes strip away, but he changes this into a new kind of god suit. This was actually spoiled on the season 2 poster, giving us a clue at where things were gonna go.
This time, the crown resembles the cracks of the citadel, with it being fused together through using Kintsugi.
This is an ancient Japanese technique of fusing pottery together, and it could also show that he was the smashed statue at the citadel. We never learned who this was, but having Loki there would’ve spoiled everything.
Tearing the loom apart, this then spreads out the strands, which Loki starts to pull together. These act like the roots of a tree, and from here, Loki creates the world tree. This all connects to Norse mythology, and tree imagery has been shown throughout the season. Even the mail vent that led into OB’s room, that sort of looked like a trunk leading up into one.
Tearing open a doorway to the citadel at the end of time, Loki then decides to give everyone a chance.
Now I feel like this is taking Loki to the God of Stories and potentially the Avengers Prime arc. Agent of Asgard heavily influenced the show, as it was a major point for Loki in the comics, in which he switched from a villain into a hero. The source material had him as the God of Stories, in which he ended up leaving the multiverse completely and going to a void outside of time and space. Here, he encountered not only those who sit above in the shadows but also an elderly King Loki, who’d been throwing things through time to try and control his past.
God of Stories ended up telling him that due to his actions, he’d actually changed things with him too and had propelled him from being a stepping stone into becoming a new kind of Loki. This was a major change in the character that vastly altered him, and they are sort of riffing off that.
Last week also took a heavy focus on fiction, and fiction itself is, of course, based around stories. On top of this, we discovered that Hunter B-15’s name was Verity Willis, and that too was a character that popped up in the comics.
Now Avenger Prime is also someone who exists far, far, far out in the future, and he’s also been controlling things in the past too.
In case you don’t know, Feige is now the one who’s in creative control of the comics too, and it’s thought that he’s also slotting things into those to help set things up for the MCU. This includes Avenger Prime, who could become a major part in the upcoming stories like Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars. Their identity was teased for ages, and then it was revealed in the end that this was actually Loki. Unmasked in Avengers Forever 12, it was discovered that he’d dipped into the multiverse and had learned of Avengers defeating him everywhere. Destroying them, this then created several major multiversal threats that the Avengers would’ve defeated in their own reality. Thus, he had to collect Avengers from other timelines to right the wrongs of the past.
Now, I know that’s not really what’s happening here, but the basis for it could be used in the future.
From here, we jump to the TVA after and see the tree poster that’s been spoiling this entire ending every time we’ve seen it.
This was also shown in the mural as well, which the Timekeepers stood around.
Like at the TVA has been turned on its side, which we also see in the branches too.
Ms. Minutes is there, but they’re trying to trush her, and they’re keeping an eye on He Who Remains Variants.
This includes one that they say is 616 Adjacent, with us seeing shots from Quantumania. We’re told that they handled it, and thus the TVA doesn’t need to step in.
Now this confirms a theory that we had in our last vid, in which the majority of the show was taking place before Quantumania.
Avengers: Endgame was the moment in which Loki slipped out of the time stream, and after being caught by the TVA, he’s spent what’s about 2 weeks going on the journey in the show.
Thus, even stuff like No Way Home is technically happening after this series, with the multiverse opening up to allow the council of Kangs to be created. This has all ushered in the multiversal war that will be playing out in Secret Wars, with Kang potentially at the center of it. I know there are rumblings that he might be replaced by Doctor Doom due to the Variety article, and hey, that could be the case too.
In the comics, both Secret Wars events were centered around Doctor Doom, and he ended up stealing the power of the Beyonder or Beyonds, depending on what version you read. This made him into a God, in which he was able to bend reality to his will. When the multiverse was destroyed, Doom ended up putting together salvaged pieces of it into one planet called Battleworld, along with his ally Doctor Strange, who was there for the Beyonders being overthrown.
I think that’s sort of where things could end up heading, but we’ll talk about it more later on.
Now on his desk, we see that Mobius has requested a file, and though they want to take the Timekeeper murals down, they remain up. Mobius says those who don’t uh…wow…remember the wow…uh, and this is the beginning of the phrase, “those who don’t remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” This is normally used to describe war and heinous acts carried out by humanity, with it often being used to describe the outcomes of fascism. The TVA was once a fascist organization, but now they’re trying to do better.
Either way, we learn that Mobius is leaving, which shows that Loki actually kept his promise in episode 5. Though he gets offered the chance to be a judge, he goes back, and hey…I’m not crying…you’re crying.
Mobius doesn’t really know anything else, and thus he’s scared, but he still decides to go back. We see that the war room is now a buzzing hive of staff, with it showing that things are more open than just having one ruler above all. The official TVA second edition is released, with it being a golden yellow color.
‘LOKI’ SEASON 2 FINALE ENDING EXPLAINED
I was trying to think what this might represent, so if you know, then drop it below.
Back with Victor, he never got the book, and Ravonna then wakes up down in the void.
Over in the corner, she looks at the pyramid and sphinx, which could be hinting towards her teaming up with Rama Tut. This was a Kang variant that was a pharaoh in Egypt, and we see the grass move out of the way to reveal that this is where the TVA also once stood. I think. That’s how I interpreted it anyway. It seemed to me that the citadel was all that remained of it and maybe it was pruned and sent back. It could show that Ravonna escapes though, and maybe eventually we’ll see her destroy it.
Either way, we watch as Alioth arrives, and the creature is a big change up from how they’re in the comics.
The source material had him as an even bigger conqueror of time than Kang was, with his temporal domain stretching back billions of years. This was all the way up to 2000 BC, which is a temporal point that Kang refused to go past.
This is because it would’ve brought him into conflict with Alioth, who up until that year ruled it all. Though he’s presented almost like a lap dog here, there may be more to the character, with him potentially even being banished to the void so Kang could conquer more time.
Now I kinda feel like Ravonna may end up conquering Alioth, and she could use him as a way to get out. There’s a determined look in her eyes as it gets closer, and I don’t really think that that looks like fear.
Now Ravonna in the comics was a big love interest of Kang, with her playing a major part in developing the character.
That’s something that we’ve seen in the series with the info we’ve got, and she also sort of follows her later iterations. It got to a point where Ravonna ended up turning against him because of all the pain and misery he wrought. In “Only Myself Left to Conquer,” he loved her when he was a young Nathaniel, but she was then killed by an older version of Kang. This then sent her essence out into the time stream where she was reincarnated again and again. No matter what happened, their love was doomed, and the pair were always unable to be together. Sometimes she’d be killed, and other times she’d betray him, leading to Kang becoming depressed and bitter. In the end, he encountered his younger self and murdered her past version to start the cycle again.
Here we’ve seen Ravonna go from a loyal and devoted soldier who helped to win He Who Remains’ time war. Since then, she’s been running the TVA, but it’s been a thankless role, with her being cast out of the kingdom of heaven so He Who Remains can rule alone. In many ways, she may even be a flip on Lucifer, and there’s definitely lots of biblical imagery throughout the show.
Season 1 saw He Who Remains carrying an apple, and Loki and Sylvie were like Adam and Eve. Potentially, Ravonna could be the fallen angel that’s ruled the kingdom beneath, though I might be reaching.
Now we watch as Mobius goes back to his old home, which is where he’s joined by Sylvie. They’re seeing the perfection in imperfection, and this brings things full circle from what she said to him in episode 4. She said if he never looked, he’d never know, but now he’s ready to stay and watch his life.
Super sad like, super happy, and I’d be lying if I said there wasn’t some dust in the room making my eyes well up.
As for Sylvie, we don’t know where she’s gonna go, but we cut to Loki at the end of time on his throne, holding it all together. A tear passes by because of what he ended up giving up, but now the man has a glorious purpose.
Unfortunately, there’s no mid-credits scene and no season 3 confirmation.
Now before we get into my predictions, I want to talk about what I’ve thought of the series as a whole. I know the viewership’s been down nearly 40% since the first season premiere, but I genuinely think this is the best MCU series out there. I’ve always been fascinated with time travel, and I think this has mastered so many concepts and used its storytelling to beautifully weave them into its narrative. The bootstrap paradox has been used brilliantly, and even though this sometimes makes stuff predictable, there’s been so many curveballs thrown it’s been difficult to not marvel at it.
There’s also just the step up in production that’s happened with the series. I really noticed this watching season 1 and then going into this, but the way the camera moves is a major step up. It just adds so much dynamism to the scenes, and I actually think helps with the panic that you can see a lot of the characters going through. Plus, the acting is top-notch, and it’s a really well-crafted time story that I think makes the most of its central cast of characters. Though the location and characters are limited, it’s woven together really well and at points even feels like a stage play. This reminds me of a really well-crafted Dr. Who story stretched out for 6 episodes, and yeah, really enjoyed it.
Now, as for where the MCU goes from here, we have the multiverse saga coming into full effect with a number of the upcoming titles. Again, I won’t spoil The Marvels in case you haven’t seen it, but if you have, MT has a big video breaking down what happened in that on the channel right now. Either way, the next major project we know will be tackling it is Deadpool 3. This will take a heavy focus on the Fox franchises, and it will be bringing back a number of actors, including Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. From what I’ve heard, he’s gonna play a major part in Secret Wars too, and that’s gonna have a number of returning actors in it too. That’ll be Tobey Maguire, the major X-Men cast, Robert Downey Junior, and potentially even Chris Evans. Avengers: Endgame was a celebration of the MCU, and Secret Wars is sort of gonna be a celebration of all the Marvel movies from across the board. This includes the things that Marvel Studios didn’t even own, but Disney’s been doing the big moves and buying up all the studios that own these classic characters. So finally, they can bring them in for that big movie.
From there, it’s been said there’ll be a reboot that then creates a new universe out of all these older franchises into one streamlined timeline. That was what happened in the comics too, with characters like Miles Morales being brought into the main MCU. I think that we could even see a sort of Avenger Prime happening with Loki, in which he goes around recruiting the Avengers from across the timeline. Man can time slip at will, so we could see him going throughout all realities to get who he wants to help fight in this multiversal war.
Ultimately, I think that He Who Remains will likely come out on top, and we might see the cycle start again. However, this whole series has been about breaking cycles, and this has been seen across the board. Loki originally was a villain that was used as a stepping stone to propel others to greatness, but he’s even broken this along with the cycles we’ve seen in the series.
Such a good way to take things thematically, and I hope you’ve enjoyed us going through the series. Really means a lot that you watch us when there are so many great channels out there making brilliant breakdowns. Massive shoutouts to Screen Crush, Hax Dogman, Den Of Nerds, New Rockstars, Emergency Awesome, Mo From Streamr, Reel Rejects, Canadian Lad, Everything Always, Cosmic Wonder, and basically all the people who’ve made talking about this show so fun. Also huge shoutouts to MT who joined our team back in August. Man’s really brought an incredible amount to the channel, and his analysis level is next level.
Huge thank you again for everything, and please drop a like on the video as it really helps us out.
Now if you want something else to watch, we have a video on screen right now _____________________
With that out of the way, huge thank you for sitting through the video, I’ve been your host, and I’ll see you next time. Take care, Peace.
