The second trailer for 'Loki' is here and fans have a lot of theories

Since the series' announcement in 2018, Loki continues to be a highly anticipated and fan theorized show. Which makes sense considering that, despite his villainous acts, he's one of the most loved characters in the MCU.

With the release of the second trailer on Monday, people are once again buzzing about the possible events that will take place during the show. While some theories are a bit crazy and far-reaching (like the idea that Loki from this timeline will hunt down and kill Captain America), there are several theories likely to come true.

1. Loki Will appear in Thor: Love and Thunder

As so many of us know, Loki died during Avengers: Infinity War and even though many fans have hoped that it was all an illusion put on by the God of Mischief, it doesn't seem like that Loki is coming back.

However, a widely accepted theory of the show is that Loki will end by connecting to Thor: Love and Thunder, thereby giving us the beloved character back in the main timeline.

This is totally possible seeing as Marvel's phase 4 centers around the multiverse, so it's believable that we might see the Loki timeline cross over into the main MCU timeline, and the Asgardian brothers reunite.

2. Captain America and Loki cross paths

Earlier, a theory was mentioned and written off as too crazy about Loki possibly killing Steve Rogers, which still sounds unlikely however, it's not so impossible to believe that their paths will cross at all during this series.

Loki as Captain America, Thor: Dark World

In Avengers: Endgame, Captain America traveled through time to return all the Infinity Stones back to where they found them in order to prevent the timeline from getting too messy. Because of this, fans theorize that Loki will receive a visit from Steve seeing as he would want to keep Loki from creating any havoc with the Infinity Stone he stole during Avengers: Endgame.

3. Lady Loki (Or Black Widow?) will appear

There has been a lot of speculation as to who the lone female character is in the Loki trailers. Many believe, or want to hope, that it's Black Widow from an alternate timeline. It is somewhat believable because the character does resemble Natasha Romanoff.

However, other fans argue against this theory because the character can be seen with a sword which Black Widow has never used before in the MCU. Instead, some fans believe that this is Lady Loki, a female version of the loveable God.

We can see from the trailer that there will likely be several different versions of Loki popping up throughout the series, so it's not exactly a stretch to say that Lady Loki will make an appearance, too.

4. Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, and Loki will team up

Not only are all three characters magic users, but it's been confirmed before that Loki would tie into the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which also features Scarlet Witch.

Fans theorize that Nightmare might be the big bad controlling the multiverse and that Loki will join with Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch, through his jumps in time, in order to defeat him and settle the multiverse.

5. Loki will face his past and change

Phase four projects like WandaVision and Falcon and The Winter Soldier have, so far, focused heavily on character's actions, their grief, and their attempts to make amends.

It only makes sense that, while jumping through time, Loki will see his past self as well his alternate selves, and will come to understand the gravity of his actions. Hopefully the series will end with a slightly less evil God of Mischief.
