The buzz is still building after so much new information was revealed to the public at Disney Investor's Day regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Actors rumored to be in the franchise for the past few months were officially attached to roles, and Marvel CCO Kevin Feige unloaded four never-before-seen trailers for the first four Disney+ shows releasing in 2021.
The show with the least amount of footage seen before this point was Tom Hiddleston's Loki. This new series has had more than a handful of rumors connecting the plot to at least a couple of Phase 4's theatrical movies, and it will put the God of Mischief on an insane solo adventure throughout different areas of both space and time.
Loki has even been said to bring teases for some major plot points going forward in the MCU, which seems to be confirmed by a new social media blast giving more depth to a theory from earlier this year.
A recent episode of the Post-Credits Podcast, via Twitter, revealed that Jonathan Majors' Kang the Conqueror is rumored to make his full debut in the Disney+ series Loki. This comes after a rumor from scooper DanielRPK in February that said Loki would simply set up teases and an introduction for Kang.

WHAT THIS MEANS
The Loki series has everything needed for a perfect Kang introduction should this come to fruition. Kang is one of the most prominent time-traveling entities in Marvel Comics. The first trailer for the Disney+ series shows the God of Mischief in a number of unique situations through the course of human history, and with Owen Wilson's Mobius M. Mobius and the Time Variance Authority involved, Kang would appear to be an ideal target with his potential mayhem.
It would also be right in line with how Marvel Studios is working to interconnect the movies with the Disney+ shows so deeply, even with the franchise's next major villain after Josh Brolin's Thanos. Captain Marvel 2 will co-star both Iman Vellani's Ms. Marvel and Teyonnah Parris' Monica Rambeau after their respective appearances in Ms. Marvel and WandaVision. This will also work the other way around too with series like She-Hulk, which will include appearances by Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner and Tim Roth's Abomination.
Kang's first reported appearance will be in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, as officially confirmed by Feige, but he should already have plenty of momentum after his introduction in Loki. There are no details as to how he will specifically make his way into Tom Hiddleston's series, but it should go down as one of the most memorable moments in Phase 4 when it does.
Loki is set to premiere on Disney+ in May 2021.
