Since ‘Loki’ came to Disney Plus the world has been “upside down”, especially now that the recent episode of the series starring Tom Hiddleston brought back the rumors of a possible presence of Mephisto in Phase Four of the MCU.
Marvel Studios’ third live-action series on Disney Plus came with good news long before the premiere of its first episode.
Recall that, unlike ‘WandaVision’ and ‘Falcon and the Winter Solider’, this production premiered on a Wednesday two weeks ago, however, the numbers have been more than positive so Disney Plus recently announced that all its releases they will move to the third day of the week.
But hey, skipping this logistics aspect, we go back to our theory of Mephisto as part of the MCU. Those who have followed the passage of the premieres of the streaming platform of the mouse company, will know that these comments about a new villain in the Marvel universe appeared from ‘WandaVision’, although we clearly know that the truth was right before our eyes and that we just get carried away by the moment.
However, everything “c almed down” when ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ did not provide any opportunity to rekindle Mephisto’s presence in the MCU. Now, the recent episode of ‘Loki’, supposedly, is full of “hidden” clues and Easter eggs that point out that Mephisto’s existence is real, and that we just have to be patient to see it arrive.
If we are objective, Jac Shaffer, the creator of ‘WandaVision’, admitted that at no time did they want to confuse the audience, or at least not to claim that Mephisto had something to do with the situation. But, ‘Loki’, along with his breaks in time and his attempt to fix the multiverse, could be a chance to see him in action.
Would it make sense to see Mephisto in ‘Loki’?
Before talking about “theories that could lead us back to a dead end”, we have to be honest with you and tell you that it is unlikely that Mephisto will appear in ‘Loki’, however, let’s have a little fun with this.
While the world seems to be crying out for Mephisto to show his face in one of the MCU productions, it would be a complete mistake for Marvel to divert attention from a character like Loki, who had to wait many years for his own production.
However, recent episodes of the God of Mischief series seem to be shedding signs of a possible Mephisto being a Time Keeper. But why.
In the first chapter some fans swore that there was an Easter egg in the introductory scene of agent Mobius, when he traveled to 1549 and the boy who was left alive in the French cathedral pointed to a stained glass window that he had represented the Devil sitting on a throne, just as Mephisto was shown in the comics.
Director Kate Herron debunked the theory saying “it’s just a super weird coincidence,” so we wonder: is this our signal to stop looking for the fifth leg of the cat and assume that Marvel is changing the way it does content?
If we are honest, it would make sense that Mephisto had to do with the destruction of the Sacred Timeline monitored by the TVA, especially since the super villain’s whole raison d’être in the comics is to harvest souls, and it seems that his modus operandi fits with what we have seen in the series.
Destroying the Sacred Timeline could give humanity multiple opportunities to fall from grace, which would certainly be the perfect opportunity for Mephisto to enslave all souls and rule worlds.
Again, Mephisto likely has nothing to do with Loki’s narrative line, but, we are only indulging inquisitive minds and theory lovers.
Teletubbies inspired Loki series, says director Kate Herron
