Final Wednesday, Loki debuted its season finale, which completely shocked followers with its shock twist and frustratingly thrilling cliffhanger. As a way to have a good time the ending of the acclaimed first season, Marvel Studios launched the ultimate character poster for its "villain" that Loki and Sylvie tackle — He Who Stays. Not like WandaVision or The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki's reveal launched extra questions than solutions, and ended on a really ambiguous cliffhanger (thank god there's a second season coming).
Loki was simply probably the most formidable tasks that Marvel has ever taken on (be aware: main spoilers forward). It follows our favourite anti-hero as he discovers that he’s a variant amongst quite a few different Lokis that don’t match "the Sacred Timeline," as purported by the Time Variance Authority (TVA). He discovers that one other variant, a feminine Loki named Sylvie, is attempting to take down the TVA, as they destroyed her life and erased all chance of free will for the universe. We initially imagine that the "Time-Keepers," historical beings who’ve the power to see the long run are in cost, however in episode 4 it’s revealed that these are automatons hiding the identification of the actual mastermind behind the Sacred Timeline.
As our heroes battle to search out the actual villain behind the creation of the TVA, Sylvie and Loki lastly meet him on the finish of the season. He’s referred to as "He Who Stays," and is a extremely smart being that has created the Sacred Timeline in order to cease a "Multiversal Warfare," which he endured eons in the past between different variants of himself. Jonathan Majors performed his half completely, with all of the strangeness and weirdness of somebody who has spent millennia with out social contact. The poster showcases his character with some nice Jesus allusions, as his Godlike powers have stored the MCU on a strict timeline for its total period.
Nevertheless, on the finish of the season, Sylvie kills He Who Stays, spurring what followers have lengthy been awaiting — the Multiverse. Our closing picture of the season is a huge statue of one of many variants of He Who Stays, and Loki being unrecognized by Mobius and B-15. So, in concept, this poster may very well be of this new variant, and never even of the outdated one, implying the continuation of the Multiverse and what this implies for the MCU. We will solely guess that this plotline is subsequent picked up in Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity, and there will definitely be problems that reverberate all through the remainder of the universe, and there are robust rumors that a number of Spider-Mans exist within the new Spider-Man: No Approach Dwelling. Loki's finale actually did finish with a bang, and may have followers breaking down the episode for weeks to return.
