Fans are still trying to wrap their heads around the events of the Loki finale, which set the stage for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to explode into chaos. Sylvie’s decision to stab Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror variant may well prove to be a hugely unwise one, with the branching timelines already causing chaos and confusion for Tom Hiddleston’s trickster.
Not only did the sixth installment of the first season set up countless future MCU projects including Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania to name but three, but the final scenes may have confirmed that the events unfolded at exactly the same time as WandaVision.
Everyone thought the franchise’s first Disney Plus exclusive would be the one to introduce the multiverse into the mix, but it turned out the elaborate sitcom realities were all a manifestation of Wanda Maximoff’s growing abilities. Even her own children technically weren’t real, but during the post-credits scene we heard Tommy and Billy call out to their mother, indicating that there’s at least one timeline out there where the twins are flesh and blood.
Based on what we know post-Loki, it makes sense for Wanda to hear those cries at exactly the same moment Sylvie sends the Sacred Timeline into chaos. Scarlet Witch might be the most powerful superhero in the entire MCU, but she’s not quite capable of creating living beings out of nothingness. Every permutation of any reality is now something the series can explore in the future, and it ties Phase Four even closer together if the exact moment He Who Remains dies was when Wanda discovered there’s a way to bring her children back.
