Loki season 2 has been a treasure trove of Easter eggs, but one referencing Ant-Man may just take the cake. In the third episode of Loki season 2, Victor Timely pays a visit to his Wisconsin laboratory, which is brimming with his inventions.
Among the array of projects visible in the background, eagle-eyed viewers spotted an Arc Reactor prototype and numerous complex calculations. However, what’s most intriguing is what Timely describes as “the culmination of [his] life’s work.”
Initially appearing as a spherical device capable of opening and closing, this peculiar contraption emits ticking sounds like a clock. However, it has sparked speculation that it is actually Kang’s ship from “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” designed for traversing the multiverse.
A Reddit user by the name of Suspicious-Catch3112 first brought this connection to light, sharing the insight with the caption: “Just realized this from episode 3…” This discovery has piqued the interest of the Marvel community, with some fans corroborating the observation.
One Reddit user stated, “Exactly. The moment I saw it, I knew that was Kang’s Multiversal Drive in miniature,” while another commented, “There is any possibility that we see the full power of Multiversal Chair in the future.”
A third fan even proposed a theory regarding its significance, suggesting that it might be linked to the characters He Who Remains and Renslayer, kickstarting a multiverse war.
However, not everyone is convinced of the broader implications. One viewer saw it as a clever nod to the MCU, saying, “That’s a neat little nod. Ironically though, the part I’m enjoying the most about Loki S2 is that I’m not constantly on the lookout for continuity nods or references. I’m genuinely invested in this story and characters, and I don’t care how it all fits together in the MCU.”
The verdict is still out on whether this is merely a subtle Easter egg or a strategic setup for the future of Marvel’s Phase 5. Regardless, Loki season 2 continues to intrigue fans with its rich tapestry of background details and connections.
