Even though Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness remained fairly wise in its exploitation of the multiverse, with cameos restricted to Illuminatithe film seems to have inspired Michael Waldronthe screenwriter of Loki and Multiverse of Madness to do even crazier things. The first season of Loki had already sent a lot of things on the supernatural side with a Alligator Loki as a variant then an important action scene between other versions of the God of Mischief.
Whatever, Loki will have a season 2 co-written by Eric Martin with the return of Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino and Wunmi Mosaku in season 2. On the side of the filmmakers in charge of the project, Kate Herron hands over to Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Kevin Feige seems in any case well packed on this subject: “The creative team is fantastic. As Tom has already said [Hiddelston]there is still a lot of mischief to come”. Filming will begin in June 2022.
Few elements of the synopsis have leaked but the show will indeed be attached to the elements of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness. Plus, the story will pick up where we left off. Lokithat is to say blocked at the TVA which announced the imminent arrival of Kang the Conqueror. In any case, if some found the series a little weird, season 2 should always go in this direction as Waldron declared it to polygon :
“I don’t know if I could get any weirder than what we did in Season 1. We had an alligator drinking wine in a kiddie pool. It was like the Mount Everest peak of weirdness! I think there are a lot of opportunities to do with the series. We’re always looking to outdo ourselves, but hopefully it’s always character-driven. And yes, I learned once again, thanks to the series, that no idea is too crazy. You can write that Stephen Strange is going to remotely possess his own body and you can do it live. It encourages me to be bold, which is good. »
