Warning: if you haven't seen the finale episode of Loki, this article contains spoilers so read at your own risk!


Much like the first two spinoff shows that came before it, Marvel Studios' standalone Loki series starring Tom Hiddleston was also home to several fan theories. Shockingly enough, some of the fan theories surrounding the hit Disney+ series have actually come true and even Episode 6 saw one persistent theory come to fruition. A lot of fans have been speculating that Loki will mark the official debut of the MCU's next Thanos-level threat Kang the Conqueror and the fact that Ravonna Renslayer is part of the series somehow supports it.


Still, some fans were a bit apprehensive as they've learned their lesson the hard way not to cling onto theories that much. Phase Four's first two shows, WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have both proven that while some theories are too good to actually believe, there's no guarantee that they'll actually happen.

Well, Loki may have just ended that trend as the finale episode pretty much confirmed the persistent theory surrounding Kang. In Episode 6, Loki and Sylvie were successful in entering the citadel in hopes of finally uncovering the truth behind the Time Variance Authority. There, they meet a mysterious man behind the creation of the TVA who Miss Minutes refers to as "He Who Remains".


Now, we didn't exactly get his actual name but the character in question is played by none other than Jonathan Majors who was cast as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania last year. Although he's been heavily rumored to make an appearance on the series in some capacity, Majors' debut in Loki still comes as a huge shocker as a lot of people thought Marvel Studios was saving his grand arrival on the big screen.

Loki's finale episode is now streaming on Disney+.
