2021 has seen the MCU kick off its Phase 4 content with TV shows rather than movies thus far. WandaVision came out in January 2021 and that bridged right into Falcon and the Winter Solider. On June 9, the newest series dropped, Loki. Everyone loves making predictions relating to MCU properties, and we at On Tap Sports Net are no different.
Below you will find some Loki theories and predictions from our team regarding the show, how it will fit into the MCU, and what impact that will have. For Week One, we have Schwartzy's prediction for where the series will end up. While everything below is speculation, a spoiler warning is in effect.
Loki Theory 1 - The real "big-bad" at the end of the series will be Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch.
Episode 1 of Loki laid out a great base for a "buddy cop" story, but I think there are grander things at play. Throughout WandaVision they made references to "Nexus" through the fake commercials we saw. Wanda is herself a Nexus being (she can alter the flow of time), and now in Loki, we understand the TVA is actively monitoring Nexus events that may start new timelines. I suspect the show will give a false sense of victory in stopping 'timeline Loki', only to have the TVA uncover Scarlet Witch in her Super Saiyan form from the end credits scene in WandaVision.
Out there Loki theory - Mephisto is behind it all
This is mostly me just wanting one of my many WandaVision theories to come true. I was obsessed with Mephisto appearing in that show and I'm just not ready to hang it up. He has a heavy presence in the comics with Wanda/her family and Agatha Harkness. He would make for an awesome character to have in the fray ahead of Multiverse of Madness.
