For more than a decade, Marvel fans have been forced to stick around until the end of the credits for each movie, as there’s usually an Easter Egg or teaser enclosed to boost anticipation for the next movie. Unlike the movies, the Marvel-Disney Plus series like WandaVision and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier changed things up a bit, introducing the after-credits scenes in the later episodes.
Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston, followed the same route as the other series. The show premiered on June 9, and while it was an action-packed episode, there were no post-credits scenes, although it was fun to run through the credits. I hope Loki would also include post-credit scenes like WandaVision and The Falcon And The Winter Soldier. While we saw post-credits scenes, we didn’t see Mephisto, who was at the center of numerous fan theories in WandaVision, none of which unfortunately came to fruition. Loki was referring to a ‘devil’, but apparently that’s not what we think it is.
When asked about this by Loki director Kate Herron, she replied: “It’s honestly just a super weird coincidence. Like, it’s really a reference to Loki – the horns, he was thrown from heaven, that’s where it’s a reference. is,” Herron said. “Because we filmed that way before — I think WandaVision must have been in the post (post-production) when we filmed that. I’ve seen all about that online and I thought, ‘Oh, this is going to be interesting.’ [Laughs] But no, it’s more relevant to the themes of our show and it’s not a nod to that character.”
Loki airs Wednesdays, Disney Plus-Hostar. The show continues with Loki’s disappearance in Avengers Endgame, where he escaped from an alternate timeline with the Space Stone.
