Loki, featuring Tom Hiddleston as the titular god of mischief, made the case for the upcoming phase 4 of the MCU and how!
The internet is abuzz with theories about the multiverse, so here’s a list of the upcoming MCU movies and TV shows that are going to dive into the chaos and leave you wanting for more in 2021.
