Just a quick heads up, the following does contain SPOILERS about the upcoming LOKI series on Disney+. Please proceed with caution!
Recently in an interview with Business Insider (via Entertainment Weekly), the Russos said Loki’s new Disney series could possibly feature Steve Rogers, aka Captain America himself!
During Avengers: Endgame, Loki steals the Tesseract when Tony Stark and Scott Lang completely fail in their attempt to steal it in the first place! So, we know Loki goes back to Asgard so the events of The Dark World can happen, but, and this is where it could get awesome, there is a HUGE GAP when Cap travels back in time to put all the stones in there original places. Could he have spent some time trying to find Loki in the past? This is where the new LOKI series could become AMAZING!
“Loki, when he teleports away with the Time Stone, would create his own timeline. It gets very complicated, but it would be impossible for [Cap] to rectify the timeline unless he found Loki,” Joe said. “The minute that Loki does something as dramatic as take the Space Stone, he creates a branched reality.
WE’RE DEALING WITH THIS IDEA OF MULTIVERSES AND BRANCHED REALITIES, SO THERE ARE MANY REALITIES,” ANTHONY SAID.
Kyle Anderson from the Nerdist said
“Firstly, to be clear – Loki takes the Space Stone, not the Time Stone. It’s also directly stated in Endgame that only removing infinity stones from their place in time will create branched or alternate timelines. The Space Stone has no time traveling properties and Loki doesn’t have any Pym Particles as far as we know. So he could be anywhere in space, but that instance of the Tesseract never left 2012.
But when asked if Cap is in a different timeline, the Russos said:
“Correct, so he would have to come back to this timeline in order to hand off the shield,” Joe said.
“There’s a question of, how did this separate timeline Cap come to reappear in this timeline and why?” Anthony added.
The big debate now is, does Chris Evans have or even want to do this? Personalty I think this would make an Awesome series.
