Episode 5 of ” Loki ” is now available on Disney + in the stream and heralds the finale, which awaits us next week on the streaming service. Finally, the big, mysterious villain is revealed, who is in the truth behind the TVA and who will determine the progression of Marvel Phase 4.
Be warned about spoilers for episode 5 of “Loki” and possibly the finale. While they are purely theories, we are drawing on knowledge from Marvel Comics, which means there is a certain likelihood that the theories will turn out to be true in the end.
Loki: Alioth is a protective wall against the real villain of Marvel Phase 4!
In a huge final battle in which Classic Loki (Richard E. Grant: ” Star Wars 9 “) sacrifices himself, Sylvie can enchant the cloud monster Alioth. This opens the way to a castle in another dimension. Loki and Sylvie hope to find the TVA’s real puller there.
Fans of Marvel Comics already sense that it is Kang the Conqueror, who has already been confirmed for Marvel Phase 4, more precisely the movie “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania”. Jonathan Majors was cast as the actor.
Loki’s connection to Ant-Man
The connection to the “Ant-Man” films is further underlined by the fact that Kang’s fortress called Chronopolis was already seen in the second “Ant-Man” film when Hank and Janet Pym flee the quantum realm. At least fans interpret a short scene as an Easter egg, which Chronopolis should show.
The coloring around the fortresses, the colorful shimmer, is actually similar in both cases. However, the fortresses are hardly similar. So Loki Castle is not Chronopolis after all?
Loki: Was Kang freed by defeating Alioth?
It’s hard to say if Kang will really be introduced to the Disney + series. It would be rather daring to introduce the main antagonist for all upcoming Marvel films in a series. Still, both Alioth and Ravonna Renslayer have clear connections with Kang in the comics.
Kang is a conqueror from the future who can travel through time and occupy multiple time realms. A clearly superior villain in the comics is Alioth. Therefore, Kang establishes protection against Alioth. This protects Kang, but his own protection limits him.
He cannot expand his own empire further through Alioth’s danger, which is why the earth is safe from Kang. – Transferred to “Loki”, this could mean that Loki and Sylvie have just freed Kang by defeating Alioth and Kang can now continue his conquest through the multiverse.
The grand finale of “Loki” finally awaits us on July 14, 2021. In addition, the movie ” Black Widow ” will start on July 8, 2021. On July 9, you can also find the film in the Disney + novelty program.
