Warning: Contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Loki season 1. Lovecraft Country star Jonathan Majors appeared as Kang the Conqueror for Ant-Man & the Wasp: Quantumania, making his debut in Loki episode 6, and here's everything you need to know about the Marvel movie's new main villain Kang.

The Multiverse and Variants introduced in Loki season 1 are central to the MCU's Phase 4, 5, and 6 narratives, collectively dubbed «The Multiverse Saga.» Phase 6 finishes with the next two new Avengers movies,  Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars, with Kang as the Big Bad.

The MCU Kang the Conqueror is the post-«Infinity Saga» Thanos replacement. Disney+'s Loki TV series stars Tom Hiddleston as the titular God of Mischief, or rather as a variant of Loki who was created as a result of the Avengers' time travel.

Captured by the Time Variance Authority and put on trial for crimes against the «Sacred Timeline,» Loki eventually learned the timeline was naturally chaotic; any moment has the potential to create a so-called «Nexus Event,» a branched reality.
