Loki has changed the scope of the MCU forever with a chance for Marvel Studios to take this story in any way it wants thanks to the multiverse being created. With the arrival of the multiverse it seems like anything is possible.
Have you ever wanted to know what Emily Blunt would’ve been like as Black Widow? Or John Krasinski as Captain America? The multiverse could make it happen.
Do you want to see Chris Evans return as Captain America? There’s been rumors that he’s eyeing a return to the MCU and I’m pretty sure after what’s happened with Loki that’s going to happen. Hugh Jackman may have even teased a reprisal of his iconic role as Wolverine in the MCU via his Instagram page a couple of weeks ago.
Or do you want Deadpool to meet The Avengers? We’re in the multiverse now. Anything could happen.
So yes, the Multiverse is open and that means Kevin Feige can run wild with his imagination but there are some things that need to remain permanent and one such instance is Iron Man’s death.

But to understand where these characters’ stories can go we have to look at what the show and the finale revealed to us about Loki and Sylvie.

He starts off as the jealous brother who tries to keep Thor from being king by secretly inviting the Frost Giants into Asgard to crash the party. His plan veers out-of-control when Thor decides to take revenge on the Frost Giants, resulting in his banishment. Meanwhile, Loki on Jotunheim discovers when touched by a Frost Giant that his skin turns blue like them. It suddenly clicks why he’s always been treated so differently than Thor, why he was never groomed for the throne even though he was the smartest of the two brothers.
He learns that he’s adopted and it shatters Loki, driving him on a villainous path that he hopes will conclude with him being King of Asgard. His plan fails but he turns to Thanos, becoming his pawn and in return he would become King of Midgard a.k.a Earth.
