The Rise of Dr. Doom: How Loki Season 2 Indicates a New Big Bad

Loki season 2 has just ended, and the season finale has left fans with mixed emotions. The final episode, titled ‘Glorious Purpose,’ sees Loki taking his place at the end of time on He Who Remains’ throne, safe-keeping all timelines. This decision will have significant implications for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The finale also hints at the departure of Jonathan Majors’ Kang as the MCU’s main antagonist, with Dr. Doom set to take his place. Marvel Studios is reportedly planning to move away from Kang and introduce Dr. Doom as the new big bad for future Avengers films. The conclusion of Loki season 2 sets the stage for Victor Von Doom to make his MCU debut, with the series laying the groundwork for his arrival. With the recent poor box office performance of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,’ Marvel seems eager to steer the MCU in a new direction, with Doom stepping in as a potential new villain. As fans await further news from official sources, Loki season 2 is available for streaming on Disney+.
