Loki’s escape with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame looks to be the start of his upcoming solo series for Disney+. Joe and Anthony Russo have now hinted that Captain America himself may be involved in apprehending the trickster.
During an interview with Travis Clark of Business Insider, the Russo Brothers teased that during his mission to restore the Infinity Stones and return Mjölnir, Cap may find himself chasing Loki and the stolen goods.
 “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.
Despite what the writers of the films have said, The Russos are still adamant about the multiverse concept and that when Cap stayed with Peggy he created a new timeline.
“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. It seems this question will also be answered by the MCU in the future.

  1. It’s not what the Russos say or Markus and McFeely say re the multiverse. It’s what Kevin Feige says. That’s all that matters. Everything else is (fun) fan speculation.

  2. That interview isn’t about the Loki TV series and it doesn’t even mention the TV series in it. In fact at the end of the interview the Russos reiterate that they have no plans currently with new movies or Disney Plus shows with Marvel.
    All that is is an interview where the Russos explain the movie to the interviewer. It’s not saying “Oh, the Loki TV series is all about Cap tracking down Loki across the multiverse” it’s “Cap isn’t going to be able to fix that timeline unless he found Loki”. They also don’t say that Cap was successful in fixing all of the timelines – all we know is that he put the stones back, not that he put them back in such a way that the alternate timeline was fixed to be in synch with ours.
    (Also not providing the link to the Business Insider interview is poor netiquette – the guy who made the interview and wrote it up deserves the clicks.)

  3. Exactly. This is some Bleeding Cool-level clickbait here. Never in that interview was it presented as even a slight possibility that Chris Evans was going to be a part of the Loki show in any shape or form.

  4. Agreed! I expect better from The Beat, this is a non-article and pure speculation. Amateur hour.

  5. I suspect that Disney’s “endgame” is to get out of the theatrical movie business and dominate streaming. Now that they’ve taken over Hulu, they’re a step closer to that.
