Loki Merchandise Teases MCU Timeline Changes | Screen Rant

But this does raise an intriguing question; what if Loki is right? What if the timelines are indeed attempting to break free of the TVA’s policing, meaning the Multiverse defaults to continuous expansion, and its growth has been restricted by the will of sentient beings who try to keep time in some semblance of order? The idea sounds very similar to Terry Pratchett’s novel Thief of Time (wherein the History Monks work to ensure that yesterday never happens after tomorrow and that tomorrow always comes after today). No doubt the MCU’s approach will be far less comedic, and in fact, Loki’s comments may well explain why even Avengers: Endgame‘s writers and directors disagree with how time travel works in the MCU. There is no consistent time travel model and temporal mechanics because the default is chaos, and any order is artificially imposed.

This may have significant implications for Marvel’s Multiversal stories, not least because they appear to be focusing on Wanda Maximoff. According to WandaVision, Wanda is a “Scarlet Witch,” a sorceress who wields so-called Chaos Magic – described as the power of spontaneous creation. A Scarlet Witch may possess the ability to create entirely new timelines, and that the association between such untamed creation and chaos is deliberate on Marvel’s part. If so, the TVA may not be particularly pleased to learn a Scarlet Witch has emerged on Earth – and Loki‘s new characters could be key enemies for the Avengers in the future.
