There is little doubt that the first episode of Loki had fans talking about how time travel has affected the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Interestingly, it has even led to fans declaring that Steve Rogers should be arrested by the Time Variance Authority for what he did in Avengers: Endgame. But will we see this happening in the show? Michael Waldron has addressed the possibility of Steve being taken in by the TVA.
In Endgame, Steve was given the task to return all the Infinity Stones to their proper place in time. However, Steve decided not to go back to the future and chose to stay with Peggy Carter in the past instead. His actions are believed to have affected the Sacred Timeline even more than what Loki has done.
So will we see Steve being arrested by the TVA in Loki? Waldron was asked about this in an interview with SUPES. Interestingly, the show's head writer and creator didn't share much but did point out that fans should watch every episode of the series.
"I don't think I can answer that," Waldron said. "I don't think I can answer that. I think maybe...I think maybe just keep watching."
It's an interesting comment considering that there have been speculations that Chris Evans could reprise his role in a new MCU project. Although it was initially believed to be The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, it's more likely that the project is actually Loki.
We love the idea of Evans returning as Steve, even if it does mean that he'll be arrested by the TVA. However, it's important to point out that Evans' appearance in Loki has not yet been confirmed so it's best to take this with a grain of salt.
The premiere episode of Loki is now streaming on Disney+.
