A new rumor claims that Loki’s upcoming second season on the Disney+ show will feature a Kang variant of the ’90s comic book series Avengers: Forever.
A new Loki the identity of one of Kang’s Marvel Comics-inspired variants in Season 2 may have just been rumored.
The rumor comes from the Patreon account of reputable scooper Daniel Richtman. He claims that LokiKang’s second season will feature multiple versions of Kang, including one who is “an inventor from the past who wants to buy things from people to influence the future.” As noted by one of Richtman’s Patreon subscribers, this broadly matches the description of the Kang Victor Timely variant, which first appeared in the classic ’90s comic book series. Avengers: Forever by writers Kurt Busiek and Roger Stern and artist Carlos Pacheco. Richtman replied that he could not say for sure that Loki“Inventor Kang” is Timely, however, he suspected that was the case. That said, neither Marvel Studios nor Disney+ have confirmed Victor Timely’s inclusion in Loki Season 2, which means this rumor should be treated as pure speculation at this time.
Loki introduced Kang to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the Season 1 finale, “For All Time. Always.” Here, a variation of the supervillain calling himself The One Who Remains reveals that he created the MCU’s singular timeline to prevent a multiversal war between his counterparts from different realities. The One Who Remains is played by Jonathan Majors in Lokiand the actor is set to portray Kang himself in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Majors previously confirmed that he only signed for the The ant Man sequel after finishing filming on Lokias playing He Who Remains left him eager to explore other sides of Kang’s character.
