Well, Loki finally had its Snoke moment. At the end of Episode Four, we finally met the high and mighty Time Keepers. One of them had a weird moustache not made out of hair and it kept me up last night. But with one fell swoop, Sylvie cut the head off one of the Time Keepers and picked it up, only to find that it was... made of robot parts.
Obviously someone else is pulling the strings here. And Marvel fans seem to have reached a consensus as to who that being is: Kang the Conquerer, a legendary comic book villain who is already confirmed to show up in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, played by the always-great Jonathan Majors. In the comics, Kang has a long, long history. If you want to go down that rabbit hole, be my guest. Just know that he's essentially a time-traveling baddie who's going to show up to mess with the Avengers at some point in the MCU's future. In fact, timelines, multiverses, and variants are kind of his thing. Even though clamor for Kang has surrounded the entirety of Loki so far, let's kick it over to Reddit user Hpotter821 for the theory:
Kang the conqueror: So in the comics Prime Kang wanted to eliminate all other versions of Kang to ensure that he would become Immortus. What if MCU Kang created the TVA to prevent any other timelines with Kang variants to form.
And what if where Loki ends up in the post credit scene of ep 4 is a version of Chronopolis made up of every person, place and thing the TVA ever pruned.
If Marvel wants to properly introduce Kang before the next Ant-Man and the Wasp installment, this is the way to do it. Given what we know about Kang, it would be a very Kang thing to do—forcing a legion of variants to ensure his ruling over the timelines. Chronopolis is essentially Kang's city in the future, so that would be an interesting spin on comic-book lore. So will Kang actually show up in the finale of Loki? Majors himself has pretty flatly denied the rumours of his cameo. But hey, never say never. Stranger things have happened at Marvel.
