In an interview with Comic Book Movie, Marvel’s newly-appointed Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige has revealed that Tom Hiddleston’s forthcoming Disney+ series Loki will also be making a connection to Marvel Studios’ highly-anticipated sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. However, Feige didn’t confirm if Hiddleston will also be making an appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel.
Loki is set to debut in the Spring of 2021 with Michael Waldron as its showrunner. It will be the second MCU series that is expected to directly impact the events of the Doctor Strange sequel with the first one being Elizabeth Olsen’s upcoming WandaVision.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is being described as the first horror film in the MCU with Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch returning as the titular sorcerer supreme and Elizabeth Olsen also appearing as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch. The film will again be directed by Scott Derrickson with The Turning scribe Jade Bartlett set to pen the screenplay. It is scheduled to debut on May 7, 2021.
Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch recently appeared in this year’s highest-grossing film of all time, Avengers: Endgame, where they were both last seen attending Tony Stark’s funeral. Loki also appeared in Endgame and was last seen after the events of the Avengers’ first battle in New York, where he escapes with the Tesseract cube.
