Loki is an American television series created by Michael Waldron for the streaming service Disney+, based on Marvel Comics featuring the Loki. Just before releasing of the season 2, one Marvel fan is shares the theory that Ke Huy Quan’s jumpsuit new MCU character will be the key to saving the universe in Loki season 2.
Fan theory makes that Ke Huy Quan’s jumpsuit the key to the Loki show
As first pointed out by ScreenCrush, when Quan’s OB is introduced in the promo, he’s wearing a jumpsuit that has an interesting logo on it. On closer inspection, the symbol looks like an ouroboros, typically depicted as a serpent or a eating its own tail, which represents an infinite loop. The ancient iconography is often associated with the idea of eternal cycle of destruction and rebirth.
Given how season 1 ended, we know things are going to get complicated in the next chapter, evidenced in the teaser by Loki’s timeslipping. One of Loki fan suggested that the ouroboros might be a hint that Loki will have to put together his own Time Variance Authority. The mysterious organization he was essentially trying to destroy in the previous installment, to restore balance and create another Sacred Timeline.
“Long ago, there was a vast multiversal war. Countess unique timelines battled each other for supremacy, nearly resulting in total destruction of, well, everything,” they remind us Miss Minutes said in season 1. One user reckons that when Sylvie killed Kang variant He Who Remains, it essentially kicked off a new multiversal war, thus “the cycle begins again.”
They go on to reference Jörmungandr, a creature in Norse mythology that is often nicknamed the “world serpent”, and claim that Loki might even use it as the marker for his army of Time-Keepers. Last of all, the same person points out that Loki season 2’s poster sees various versions of Loki continuously running around Miss Minutes’ clockface. They definitely could be onto something with this loop idea.
Loki season 2 will premiere on October 6.
