The new Disney+ TV series Loki will clear up how time travel works in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Ahead of the series premiere on June 9, Loki producer and writer Michael Waldron shared details about the “airtight” time-travel theory the writers created for the show. And Waldron is hoping Marvel fans won’t be able to dispute their approach to time travel.

How does time travel work in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Marvel was able to avoid time travel for most of the early MCU phases. But the topic is so prevalent in the Marvel comic books that it was inevitably going to come into play. Movies such as Doctor Strange and Ant-Man addressed time and multiple dimensions, as did Thor: The Dark World (during which Loki was supposed to die for good). But the Loki Disney+ TV series will establish a new precedent for time travel moving forward.
