Avengers: Endgame introduces time travel to the MCU, but with strict rules. Now Loki Writer Michael Waldron talks about time travel in the series. As we all know from the many trailers and TV spots. Loki ends up working for TVA, the Time Variance Authority. As editor-in-chief Waldron points out in a recent interview with Vanity ShowThere are advantages to Loki being able to see different versions of himself.
“You can literally hold a mirror in front of your characters. Perhaps they can encounter other versions of themselves at different times in their lives. In the case of Marty McFly from Back to the Future, he can meet versions of his parents and then he gets to understand each other better.
Waldron was also asked if Loki could find himself “himself” on the show?
“It is certainly possible,” says Waldron. “What being is more chaotic than Loki?” What do you have to learn from any version of yourself? “
However, while Avengers: Endgame Having come to the era to “travel” for the first time in the MCU, one would expect TVA to have a little more knowledge of the process. So Waldron had to set some rules for time travel inside Loki.

“We had to create insane institutional knowledge of how time travel would work within VAT so that the public never had to think about it again. It was a lot of winding timeline drawings.
Marvel has argued for how time travel works in Avengers: Endgame, but that, Waldron points out, “is how the Avengers understand it.” With a TV show, it’s a little different. ” I’ve always been very aware that there’s a week between each of our episodes and these fans are going to do exactly what I would do, which is separate that. We wanted to create a time travel logic that was so waterproof that it could last over six hours. There are some sci-fi time travel concepts here that I can’t wait for my fellow Rick and Morty to see.
Waldron also wrote Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, he therefore understands that if he “makes a mess”, it is up to him to clean it up too. However, doing damage is pretty fun with a character like Loki.
“Yes, we’ll leave that to the next writer. But then you do that on Loki and you find yourself writing Doctor Strange and you have to clean up your own mess.
