What could the Marvel Cinematic Universe look like after Avengers: Endgame? That’s a question we’re still asking even two years and several movie and TV show releases after the epochal Marvel movie hit theaters, but it’s one that Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige is still feeling out as we forge ahead into Phase 4. On the TV side, Marvel is using the chance to explore the traumas of characters like Wanda Maximoff or Bucky Barnes, and on the film side, with the upcoming Black Widow, the studio is looking back — expanding on the time periods in which we didn’t see the character. In fact, Feige said that he’s open to the idea of exploring other Marvel characters with prequel movies similar to Black Widow.

It’s hard to believe, but Sam Raimi hasn’t directed a movie since 2013’s Oz the Great and Powerful, a big box office hit that I’m sure most people completely forgot about. Thankfully, Raimi’s long drought will soon be over with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange. And not only will Multiverse of Madness signal Raimi’s return to superhero movies, it will also have the filmmaker returning to his horror roots.
In a recent interview, Multiverse of Madness co-writer Michael Waldron confirmed the sequel would have Raimi leaning heavily on horror, and that’s something worth getting excited about.

Minor spoilers for Loki episode two follow.
You might have noticed their flashing neon signs throughout Loki. Specifically, the signs for Roxxcart, the big-box store where thousands of people are taking refuge from a coming hurricane and where Loki and the Time Variance Authority agents descend on a mission in episode two of the Disney+ Marvel series.

Do you remember how the feverish speculation surrounding the next lead in the legendary science fiction series Doctor Who would always, inevitably land on Tom Hiddleston? Rallying cries of “Tom Hiddleston as the 12th Doctor!” or “Tom Hiddleston should be the 13th Doctor!” frequently circulated the internet, as did fan art that depicted the Avengers star in front of the TARDIS, that blue box in which the Doctor traveled in time and space.
Well, fans kind of got their wish with Loki, the new Marvel series on Disney+ starring Hiddleston as the God of Mischief after he gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority for “crimes against the Sacred Timeline.” A rogueish protagonist who flouts the laws of time? An intimidating organization run by cosmic figures with a penchant for high collared capes? Time travel rules that are a little wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey?

This is especially true in this week’s episode of Loki, which calls to mind another “Volcano Day” in Doctor Who, but with a very different approach.
