Warning! Spoilers ahead
Who is He Who Remains and who plays him?
Loki and Sylvie reach the citadel at end of the time. There they meet an eccentric, apple-munching, man dressed in lordly garb. Jonathan Majors plays He Who Remains, the scientist played by Jonathan Majors.
Majors is most well-known for his roles in The Last Black Man In San Francisco (2019), Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods (2020) and as Atticus Freeman on HBO’s Lovecraft Country (2020).
Which comic character are you?
His other name is not mentioned in the final, but He Who Remains’ comic counterpart Kang the Conquerer is. We meet a 31-year-old scientist who created the Time Variance Authority in an effort to stop evil variants from destroying the multiverse.
Kang, a villain from the 31st Century who has faced off against the Avengers numerous times since his 1960s debut, is depicted in comics.

What was Sylvie’s secret?
The multiverse is now able to branch freely thanks to Sylvie’s decision of killing He Who Remains. He Who Remains has ceased to be there to control his evil variants — he is now able to feed them and their timelines onto Alioth, the big purple people-eating cloud.
The Avengers will likely be confronted with the evil Kang the Conquerer forms, which are free to roam wild and cause havoc.
When will Kang the Conquerer be next?
Deadline reported in September that Majors would play Kang the Conquerer, in Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania.
Although the exact release date of the threequel is unknown, it will arrive in 2023 after a number of MCU movies including Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness. Kang will be seen in one of his variants in the Doctor Strange sequel. It’s possible.
What’s the second season of Loki?
We see in the middle of the credits that Loki will have a second season. This is the first MCU series that has a sequel season on Disney Plus (excluding animated series What If …?). This is the.
It will be here when? We don’t yet know. We can only go by reports that production began in November. This indicates that the show’s timeline was as well-planned as the Sacred Timeline.
WandaVision, like other Marvel Disney Plus series was intended to be a short miniseries. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier have yet to confirm additional episodes, or whether the story will continue in a big-screen adventure with Anthony Mackie as Captain America.
