WARNING #1: This article contains potential spoilers for both the Loki series as well as Thor: Love & Thunder.

Spoiler

Earlier this week, MCU Cosmic reported that previous rumors of Loki’s timeline meddling were true, but also added that the Space Stone will be used to help him travel to different times… where he will “change historical events.” This lines up with a new production logline provided to FandomWire:

“[Loki] Follows Loki after the events in Avengers: Endgame as the trickster uses the power of the Tesseract to travel throughout human history and change historical events”

This seems to be very in line with The God of Mischief’s character since the “branch timeline” Loki, having just tried enslaving a city with an alien army, has not yet been reformed by the events of Thor: The Dark World (2013) or Thor: Ragnarok (2017).
*  *  *
A source close to FandomWire has stated that Loki will end with The God of Mischief useing the Tesseract to hop through the multiverse… returning to the main MCU timeline/dimension, just in time for Thor: Love & Thunder.
*  *  *
At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios announced that Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster will be returning to the MCU, this time as the Goddess of Thunder. She took the stage as director, Taika Waititi, gifted her with Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Many have wondered how exactly Mjolnir will come back after being destroyed by Hela in Thor: Ragnarok (2017).

But much like how Mjolnir made a big comeback in Avengers: Endgame via time travel, the hammer will be returning to our main timeline along with Loki at the end of the Disney+ show.
*  *  *
This will set things up for Jane Foster to become the Mighty Thor and wield Mjolnir in Thor: Love & Thunder. It is still unclear what time (or exactly how) Loki will steal Mjolnir from. Could the events of Loki deem him worthy of lifting the hammer? It’s too early to tell, but this is sure to have some negative ramifications.

According to the actor himself, Tom Hiddleston, Loki will start filming early 2020 and is slated for a Spring 2021 release. Taika Waititi has finished the script for Thor: Love & Thunder and the movie is set to release on November 5, 2021.

‘Loki’: Owen Wilson Joins Marvel Series On Disney+

Quote

Owen Wilson is headed to Disney+ and the small-screen corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadline has confirmed. The Cars and Zoolander actor is the new big-name addition to the cast of Loki, the Disney+ series starring Tom Hiddleston as the trickster demi-god and brother to Thor.

No word on the exact role Wilson will be handling, but it is a prominent character. Wilson, also an Oscar-nominated screenwriter (Bottle Rocket), is well known for his Wes Anderson films (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Grand Budapest Hotel, among them) and broader big-screen buddy comedies (including Wedding Crashers, Shanghai Noon, The Interns). He next stars in Anderson’s latest film, the upcoming The French Dispatch.

Loki Has a Chance to Be Marvel's Version of

Spoiler

Legends of Tomorrow

While many expected Tom Hiddleston to hang up his knives after the end of the Infinity Saga, Marvel Studios announced the actor would return to the role in a Disney+ series. Although information on the series is sparse, Hiddleston will reprise his role for a time-traveling journey that will see the God of Mischief

cross paths with an organization that is tasked with protecting the fabric of time and space: the Time Variance Authority.

If that premise sounds familiar, it's because it's eerily similar to The CW's Legends of Tomorrow. With the ability to time travel using the Tesseract coupled with Loki's desire for mischief and chaos, it's basically a foregone conclusion that the show will see the God of Mischief jump around to different points in history to throw a wrench in things. And with the inclusion of the TVA, it's easy to see how Loki may act as a possible successor to Legends of Tomorrow.
*  *  *

After Loki bounces around to some of his favorite events throughout history, it would make sense for the time cops to show up and recruit him, similar to Rip Hunter's journey in Legends of Tomorrow. In The CW series, Rip enlists a group of B-list heroes from the present under false pretenses to save his family from Vandal Savage's world domination in the future. If Loki follows a similar path, it could see the God of Mischief team up with the TVA to take on a bigger threat than him, leading him down the antihero path he followed in Thor: Ragnarok.

*  *  *
The upcoming Disney+ series Loki is planned for release in 2021 and will feature six episodes. In addition to Tom Hiddleston, the series will also star Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
