If rumors are to be believed, Avengers: Secret Wars is set to bring together the biggest heroes from across the Multiverse to save the day. A producer for Marvel Studios recently teased how the Disney Plus series Loki sets up the events of the highly-anticipated movie.
Marvel Studios producer Kevin Wright recently stopped by the Phase Zero podcast to talk all things Loki season 2. While Wright talked about many things, one of the key questions brought up the impact of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki on Avengers: Secret Wars, stating he is the confirmed catalyst for the film. Wright then added that Sylvie, played by Sophia Di Martino, also has a “lot of responsibility” for the state of the multiverse.
“He’s become that and I remember [Michael] Waldron and I would talk a lot about in season one or just kind of acknowledge in season one, so much of the first two, three phases of Marvel storytelling do track back through Loki and the choices he made, Even Thanos coming to Earth is a ramification of Loki not doing his job in Avengers,” Wright explained. “So all of that plays out and as we were developing this, we were kind of like, ‘Oh, in a broad sense, it would be really cool if the coming phases also ran through Loki and his choices, but in a different, unexpected way.’ It always, I mean those are kind of like broad discussions, but we always are focusing in on just what we’re doing and try not to get too bogged down by the bigger picture. If we tell our story really well, the rest of the MCU will embrace it.”
While this is far from a confirmation that Sophia Di Martino will appear in Avengers: Secret Wars as Sylvie alongside Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, it at least suggests that she’ll have an impact on the story, if not an outright role in it. Given Sylvie is also a fan-favorite character from the Disney Plus series, it only makes sense that Marvel Studios at least gives her a cameo in the finale of the Multiverse Saga!
