Loki is over for now. This series, which will have broken audience records on Disney +, will return for a second round of episodes, which are already shaping up to be eventful. But while waiting for this providential return, Kate Herron returned with io9 on the introduction of Kang the Conqueror in the MCU.
Even if he died at the hands of Sylvie, the character played by Jonathan Mayors has not yet revealed all its mysteries. The protagonist many have identified as Kang the Conqueror will play a vital role in continuing the adventures of our favorite superheroes on the big screen.
If it’s a safe bet that it will not return in its current form, the creation of the multiverse leaves the door open to many of its variants. Information that is not surprising when we know that Jonathan Majors, who embodies him in Loki, is also announced to the cast ofAnt-Man 3. To build this version of Kang the Conqueror, the director explains having had several discussions with Jonathan Majors on the direction to adopt.
“What really appealed to us was finding that balance between extrovert and introvert. He’s isolated, the only character he seems to be talking to is this clock, Miss Minutes. Other than that, he’s surrounded by this really boisterous timeline. As for the citadel, it is very calm, there is a form of solitude and isolation that results from it. ”
The creation of the multiverse at the heart of a new saga
As you might expect, the multiverse will play a more than crucial role in the next phases of the MCU. Loki was therefore an introduction to this new epic, which definitely draws a line on the stones of Infinity. If Kate Herron gives very little information on what could await us for the sequel, especially since she will pass the baton for season 2 of Loki, she did not fail to address a little advice to the spectators. “I can’t talk about what the future holds, but I guess anything is possible, right? I guess I’m expecting the unexpected, to quote our series. ”
