Loki Creator Explains How Popular Anti-Hero Is New Key To Multiverse Saga

Loki Co-Producer Kevin Wright speaks about how the character is key to the Multiverse Saga
LOKI, Season 2

The long-awaited second season of the Marvel Studios Disney+ series Loki debuts this Thursday. The series is filled with glorious purpose as critics have given praise for the latest Disney+ show. As Loki deals with multiversal traveling and the different realities there are in the universe, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Loki‘s storyline has a big part in Avengers: Secret Wars.

The film is set to release on May 27, 2027, which is a long way to go. However, according to Loki co-executive producer Kevin Wright, Loki seems to be key in the Multiverse Saga.


During the press day for Loki season 2, asked Wright if Marvel sees Loki as a premise for the Multiverse Saga. Wright explained that while working on season 1, both Michael Waldron and himself would talk about the character and how it would almost always backtrack to Loki.

“He’s become that and I remember [Michael] Waldron and I would talk a lot about in season one or just kind of acknowledge in season one, so much of the first two, three phases of Marvel storytelling do track back through Loki and the choices he made. Even Thanos coming to Earth is a ramification of Loki not doing his job in Avengers.”

He continues by explaining that everything plays out as they are developing the character. Wright says that it’s really “cool” so the phases continue and it runs through Loki and his choices. “It always, I mean those are kind of like broad discussions, but we always are focusing in on just what we’re doing and try not to get too bogged down by the bigger picture. If we tell our story really well, the rest of the MCU will embrace it.”


At the end of season one, all hell broke loose due to Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) killing He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors), causing the Sacred Timeline to be broken, opening and allowing Kang and his variants to create chaos among the multiverse once again. The only two people who know what has happened are Loki and Sylvie. The Time Variance Authority has no idea what has happened which leads to Loki trying to stop what has been unleashed.

Now that the Sacred Timeline has been broken, havoc is set to unfold in future TV series and films which will eventually lead us to Avengers: Secret Wars. By the time we get to the Loki season 2 finale, anything is possible. Marvel Comics’ Secret Wars has multiple story arcs. Let’s take a look back at what is in store for the MCU.


There are four different Secret Wars events in Marvel Comics’ history so far and it expands from 1984 to 2015. The first ever company-wide crossover event was the Secret Wars 1984 event. This began when each individual hero’s respective magazines were “called” to a massive mechanical ring that mysteriously appeared in Central Park and transported them to a location called Battleworld. The persona responsible for kidnapping the various heroes (and also villains) to fight was an entity called The Beyonder.

Secret Wars II is the sequel of the original series and this is where The Beyonder visits Earth in search of some sort of enlightenment but ultimately comes into conflict with Earth’s superhumans and the cosmic entities that exist in the Marvel Universe.

In this final chapter of the Secret Wars trilogy, Doctor Doom and the Fantastic Four travel to the Beyonder’s universe so Doom can learn the entity’s secrets while also trying to regain the memories that the character took from him. Once they have arrived, they witness the Beyonder battling Kubik and the Shaper of Worlds when the Molecule Man intervenes and helps the powerful entity learn his origins. The Molecule Man and the Beyonder end up merging with another after discovering that he was the product of a faulty Cosmic Cube that was connected to the Molecule Man.

The 2015 Secret Wars event begins with the destruction of the multiverse, as Earth-616 and the Ultimate Universe were destroyed. A planet was made up of several different worlds across the multiverse and it was created by Doctor Doom who stole the power of the Beyonders and became the God Emperor Doom. A few heroes were able to escape the destruction and ended up taking a stand against Doom. An epic battle erupts between Reed Richards and Doctor, ending in the restoration of the multiverse.

There are different ways where Avengers: Secret Wars can go. It will be interesting to see which direction the film will take and what we will see that leads up to this epic battle. For now, we’ll just have to wait and while we’re waiting, Season 2 of Loki will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on October 5.
