The Rumored Villain For The ‘Loki’ Series On Disney+ Is A Massive Game-Changer For The MCU

Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Cinematic Universe officially changed its relationship status to ‘single’ when it came to villains, as the disintegration of Thanos meant that the franchise was now in need of an equally-if-not-more-powerful main antagonist that can truly threaten the almighty Avengers. And according to a recent report, that next big bad is shaping up to be Kang the Conqueror, and apparently, he’s going to debut in the Loki series on Disney+.

Kang the Conqueror’s debut in Loki makes sense for a number of reasons, the first and foremost being that the series is set to take place in the alternate timeline created by the God of Mischief when he absconded with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. Furthermore, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has long promised that the Disney+ original series will be as vital to the future of the MCU as its films, and debuting the franchise’s next primary antagonist on one of those very shows is certainly one way of keeping that promise.

At this time, Loki is set to premiere on Disney+ in the Spring of 2021. The first MCU Disney+ series, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will hit the streaming service on August 20, 2020.
