Many fans didn't expect Loki to have such an impact in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because initially, they thought it was just a way for Tom Hiddleston to have closure with the character before he finally "retires" the God of Mischief mantle. Shockingly enough, the series plays a major role in shaping up the future of the franchise, and the explosive Season 1 finale of Marvel Studios' latest Phase Four offering turned out to be our first true taste of what to expect now that we are diving into the multiverse.
In Episode 6, Sylvie's actions created more complications within the sacred timeline and as it turns out, she was the one responsible for opening the portal to different timelines and worlds previously unbeknownst to many. Now, with the "multiversal war" about to unfold, fans are convinced now more than ever that characters from previous Marvel films are heading to the MCU.
Taking to Twitter, webheads reacted to Loki's mind-blowing finale and thanked the series for opening up the multiverse, allowing Tobey Maguire to finally arrive in the MCU. Of course, Maguire has been heavily rumored to make an appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home but both Marvel and Sony have debunked his involvement.
Still, fans are convinced that he and fellow Spider-Man actor Andrew Garfield are reprising their Spidey roles this December. Check out some of the reactions here:
Take aways from Loki:— Michael Garcia (@MichaelGar93) July 14, 2021
1. Loki is the best character in the MCU and deserves to be face of it
2. That main bad guy if that’s who i believe it is, is going to give Thanos a run for his money
3. definitely getting Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in the new Spider-Man #Loki pic.twitter.com/A44TOMYd9T
WAIT BUT IF SYLVIE ALMOST CREATED THE MULTIVERSE THEN MAYBE SPIDERMAN NWH WILL BE SET AFTER LOKI EVENTS AND WE WILL HAVE ANDREW GARFIELD AND TOBEY MAGUIRE, I'M GONNA SCREAM— liz ceo of spiderman -153 (@starksafin) July 14, 2021
Loki really showed us the Multiverse man. Somewhere in all that madness was Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, The X-men and Fantastic 4… so crazy to think about— EZ-D (@DamienRuiz5) July 14, 2021
The possibility of Tobey Maguire suiting up again after Loki basically broke the door down to the Multiverse is driving me insane. pic.twitter.com/VGuNCWKBkX— Rex Heatdown (@RexSparxHD) July 14, 2021
Marvel fans are in for a massive treat now that Phase Four is kicking into a higher gear and just when you thought Marvel Studios has exhausted everything during the Infinity Saga, the multiverse hits us with a straight punch from out of nowhere. Things just go hella crazier and I'm all here for it!
