Loki head writer Michael Waldron teased if Captain America gets involved with the TVA and hinted at the role of Richard E Grant.
The first episode for Marvel Studios’ newest series Loki premiered earlier this week, revealing an exciting and unexplored area in the Marvel Cinematic Universe known as the Time Variance Authority (TVA). Given that the Loki that the show centers on is a certain Variant of the God of Mischief, the TVA are looking to restore him back to the proper timeline flow of events as seen from 2012’s The Avengers up to his fatal encounter with Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War.
Given the job that the TVA has involves apprehending variants and restoring them to the proper flow of time, some have speculated as to whether or not that means they will end up dealing with Captain America at some point, given that at the end of Avengers: Endgame, Steve Rogers ends up traveling back in time to pursue a life with Peggy Carter. Michael Waldron was in an interview with SUPES, in which he was asked about whether the TVA dealt with Captain America, to which he refused to answer:
“I don’t think I can answer that… I don’t think I can answer that. I think maybe…I think maybe just keep watching.”
Academy Award-nominee Richard E Grant is also part of the new series in an undisclosed role. Total Film asked Michael Waldron if Richard . Grant was potentially playing a variant of Loki, to which he replied:
“Nobody wants to hear me say who Richard E Grant’s playing. We’re lucky to have him in the show – if he’s in the show, I heard he might be. So I think everybody should just watch and find out. Like Loki himself, we really wanted the experience of watching the show to feel kind of unexpected and constantly shape-shifting.”
Do you think the remaining episodes of Loki will involve Captain America at some point? What kind of role do you think Richard E Grant is playing in the series? Sound off in the comments below.
