The season finale of “Loki” issued last week left us with a moment that has changed the Marvel Cinematic Universe. By killing the One Who Remains, the timeline is no longer monitored and that allows it to evolve uncontrollably, creating a whole multiverse which will be the canvas to work on from now on. We already saw in the episode how the timeline created new branches, and those in turn created others, but it remains to be seen how they will handle this new situation.
To put us in context, the director of the six episodes of the season, Kate Herron, has advanced what is the idea behind what we saw when Sylvie finished with the variant of Kang. More when “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” will have to deal with this directly and everything points to “Spider-Man: No Way Home” as well.
So you have the branches, which are like the alternate realities, but there is also something else, you’ll see, it’s very subtle but in the last shot you see the multiverse, there are other big timelines. It is as if these different trees are connecting now.
So it seems that we can understand that there are several timelines, each with its respective variants (which is what we have explored this season). This makes us watch the animated series “What If …?” with different eyes when considering the possibility that some of these variants come together and form the guardians of the multiverse. They are not variants of the same timeline but of several different ones. For Herron, we have to imagine the different branches that are formed as a kind of bridge between timelines:
It is almost like a bridge. The branch is like another reality, but if the branch extends to a certain extent, it will connect with the other physical timelines. That last shot we did, there are other thick branches that represent our timeline, but then there are others and the branches are like connectors basically.
It won’t take long for us to continue exploring the multiverse. The series “What If …?” will arrive this August and “Spider-Man: No Way Home” will be released in theaters this December. Despite the apparent connections with other projects, the director has also confirmed that she did not hold conversations with other directors and project managers, and given the secrecy, only Marvel itself speaks through, that is, Marvel producers Kevin Wright and Stephen Broussard. He did speak to director Peyton Reed about casting Jonathan Majors as Kang / The One Who Remains.
