Why Marvel Studios Chose for ‘Loki’ to Get a Second Season Over ‘WandaVision’ and ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’. The new Marvel shows have been a raging success for both Marvel Studios and Disney+ and many fans are curious as to why Marvel Studios approved the second season of Loki so quickly but waited to share news on the future of the other Marvel series, WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
The answer is rather simple, Loki and Sylvie’s journey is far from over and the stories featured in WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier have reached their respective conclusions. Wanda Maximoff has transformed into the Scarlet Witch and Sam Wilson has taken on the mantle of Captain America, but the characters from Loki have more work to do and we need a more intimate look into those actions that a movie can not sum up seamlessly. Simply put, we need more time with them (pun unintended, I promise).
Currently, Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch is set to return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness alongside Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange). Reportedly several characters featured in Loki will also be making an appearance in the film, but this has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios representatives. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will return in the upcoming, untitled Captain America 4 film for the studio. It is currently unknown what other characters will be making an appearance in the sequel.
Though Marvel Studios has yet to share a timeframe for the second season of Loki, the timing of the show’s initial release would put the new season’s Disney+ premiere just before the theatrical release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. This makes sense knowing Loki will be making an appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel which will act as a continuation of the storylines from WandaVision, Spider-Man: No Way Home and Loki, and Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror has already been announced as the villain in Quantumania. Until a formal release date is announced, this is strictly a theory for the moment.
