The trend in movies and televisions shows if you will is to always try and go bigger and better than what came before. Otherwise, you’re just going stagnant and you’re not really “advancing” anything. When Loki came to Disney+, many were wondering just how much of an impact it would have, the answer was…quite a bit, and that allowed certain things to happen in movies like Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
And that apparently went and inspired Michael Waldron (who wrote the first season of Loki and will be helping overall with season 2) to try and go bigger with it, though how that’ll happen…even he doesn’t know.
“I don’t know if I could go any weirder than we went in season 1,” Waldron toldÂ Polygon. “We had an alligator drinking wine out of a kiddie pool. That felt like the Mount Everest peak of weird! I think there’s plenty of opportunity there. We’re always looking to outdo ourselves, but hopefully, it’s always driven by character. And yeah, I learned on this movie once again, no idea is too crazy. You can write Stephen Strange possessing his own corpse, and maybe you’ll end up shooting it. That encourages me to be bold, which is good.”
If you recall, Season 1 ended with “He Who Remains” being killed by Sylvie, which gave rise to Kang The Conqueror throughout the timeline/timelines. But given that Season 2 hasn’t filmed yet, and Kang is going to be the villain in Ant-Man Quantumania, the big question is how everything will go and work.
Plus, the memories of everyone at the TVA has been erased, so Mobius M. Mobius doesn’t remember all that happened before, leaving Loki very much alone.
Filming is about to start on Season 2 though, so perhaps we’ll get an insight into what will happen soon enough.
