If there is something that made the Marvel Cinematic Universe successful, it is because you have to watch every single one of the projects in it because is deeply connected with each other.

This remains true even with the additions of the series in the franchise and for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Loki, the showrunner of the latter discussed how it is intertwined with the movie.

Michael Waldron gets to pen both Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and in a chat with The Playlist, he discussed how the two are interconnected, "The headaches I have are probably intertwined. I mean, it's all intertwined and it's all stands alone. Like a great comic universe, I think that one thing certainly informs the other."

Waldron added, "You're going to have a better time watching the next chapter of an MCU story if you've seen the stuff before it. But also, hopefully, even if you've never if you've walked in off the street, you'll still have a blast. It should be good enough that it stands on its own."

Loki went to introduce how the multiverse works when the God of Mischief escaped from captivity in Endgame before the Time Variance Authority captured him for not being supposed to exist at that point in time. He later learned that there are other variants of him, his versions from other alternate universes, like Sylvie and the rest who were locked out in The Void.

By the time the series ended, Sylvie and Loki reached He Who Remains, the one responsible for the creation of the Time Variance Authority, and for keeping in check what is supposed to be in what timeline and whatnot. He Who Remains warned them that a variant of him is much more sinister, pertaining to Kang the Conqueror, but Sylvie kills him anyway.

Now that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will delve deeper into the universes apart from that of the one where the MCU timeline is, Loki and Sylvie are expected to appear somewhere in the film at some point, and from there, the second season of the series might be set up.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will premiere in theaters on May 6, 2022. Loki Season 2 is yet to be given a definite schedule.
