We’re only two episodes deep into Loki’s TV show, but the internet is burning with a lot of fan theories related to the Disney Plus series.
While Loki episode 2 confirmed a long-standing rumor about the introduction of a Marvel character, fans are still convinced that a major villain — someone who is set to appear in an MCU Phase 4 film. – He will also make his debut in Loki.
That person is Kang the Conqueror — and, if recent Reddit fan theory can be taken at face value, we could see Kang making his inaugural MCU appearance in Loki.

Discussing his theory in the Marvel Studios spoiler sub-reddit, user experiment3NTALKES suggested that Kang’s MCU introduction hinges on TVA.
Of course, rumors of that nature surfaced after Loki Episode 1. At the series premiere, fans were convinced that one of the Time Keepers (who we saw in Ms. Minutes’s interpretation of the sacred timeline) was Kang. This is because one of the three is tantamount to a scientific genius.
However, experiM3NTALcase takes this principle even further. He suggests that TVA is the city based on the Quantum Realm where the audience has a brief glimpse into Ant-Man and the Wasp.
confused? Let us explain Near the end of the film, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his wife Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) are reunited in the Quantum Realm. We can see the city encased in a bubble in the background of the shot as they get into Pym’s sub-atomic ship.
Comic book fans must have seen this and thought of Chronopolis. For those unaware, Chronopolis is the city headquarters of Kang, located on the outskirts of a timeless dimension known as Limbo.
How does this all add up to Kang’s possible presence in Loki? It’s plausible that, rather than Chronopolis, the bubble city in the Quantum Realm is TVA’s headquarters – and Kang may be in charge of it.
As Owen Wilson’s Agent Mobius told Loki in Episode 1: “Time passes differently here in TVA”. We already know that time passes much more slowly in the quantum realm, because Janet van Dyne is not as old (due to the effect of quantum particles) as she last saw Hank Pym in 1987.
if TVA is bubble city in the quantum realm, here too time will pass slowly. That’s what Mobius may be referring to, and the theory only gets stronger when you take into account the thoughts of another Reddit user.
Discussing a similar principle in another thread, user KrishnasFlute added more fuel to the fire. According to him, we have been shown that time travel is possible through the quantum realm (thanks to Avengers: Endgame), so TVA can use this dimension to travel to different points in time to search for time variants. is.
Add in the fact that Kang the Conqueror is a time-travel supervillain in Marvel Comics, and TVA leader Ravona Rensselaer has a comical relationship with Kang, and things really add up.
Analysis: Will Kang make his MCU debut in Loki?
While the above fan theory seems a lot more plausible than others we’ve seen in the past, it may just be a wild coincidence that these puzzle pieces seem to fit.
For one, TVA looks big Compared to Ant-Man and the Wasp in Bubble City. As shown in Loki episode 1, the TVA was spread over a vast area of an unknown dimension (Loki was in awe when he first saw it). By the time the TVA looks much larger on the inside than on the outside (similar to Doctor Who’s TARDIS) it may be too big to fit inside one of the bubbles of the quantum realm.
Then there are the recent comments from Jonathan Majors, who will portray Kang in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumia. Speaking to Variety about Loki coming in as Kang, Majors simply said: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Of course, it can be the majors driving readers away from the scent. Marvel Studios is notoriously secretive about its projects, and Major wouldn’t want to reveal a major Loki spoiler if he’s set to appear in some capacity.
Lastly, Ravonna Renslayer actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw recently told Screen Rant that Loki will serve as the “origin story” for her character. This suggests that Ravonna Renslayer hasn’t pledged her allegiance to Kang yet, so she shouldn’t have any idea about who he is.
As intriguing as this latest Kong fan theory is, we have to err on the side of caution and say that, while highly plausible, we don’t think it’s true.
It fits together nicely but fans shouldn’t be able to reveal a character so easily. We expect more from Marvel about how it will weave its characters into the MCU, and it seems a lot easier for us to work on.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long to see if Kang makes his MCU debut in Loki. There are only four more episodes to come, so we’ll know by July 14 if this fan theory is actually true.
