Loki lead author Michael Waldron, who also wrote Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness for Marvel Studios, addresses whether Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is aware of the Time Variance Authority. A bureaucratic organization found outside of time and space, where even the cosmic infinite stones are rendered useless, the TVA is tasked with protecting the sacred timeline and maintaining the proper flow of time. “Is this the greatest power in the universe?” Loki asks for the institution set up by the omniscient Time-Keepers, whose existence might surpass even the Masters of the Mystic Arts.
IN Thor: Ragnarok, Strange says to Thor (Chris Hemsworth) during a visit to Midgard, “I keep a watch list of individuals and beings from other worlds who may be a threat to this world. Your adopted brother Loki is one of those beings.”
“We do not really know. It would be interesting if they did,” Waldron said The direct. “I think what we see with TVA is while people at Kamar-Taj handle things in a magical way, TVA is paperwork. It’s bureaucracy. It seems to be a little more science-based.”
If Strange is not yet aware of Agent Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) and TVA, he may soon find out: Loki the series’ premiere, “Glorious Purpose,” suggests a connection to Multiverse of Madness when the animated TVA mascot Miss Minutes (Tara Strong’s voice) reveals variants like Loki who risk creating a Nexus event that, if left unchecked, “can branch out into madness and lead to yet another multiversal war.”
The series is “extremely important” for the future of Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige recently told Empire Magazine. “It might have a bigger impact on MCU than any of the performances so far. What everyone was thinking WandaVision, and was kind of true, and Falk and winter soldier, which was kind of true, is even more kind of true too Loki. “
