The new “Loki” series on Disney Plus will lead right into “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” Marvel Studios chief creative officer Kevin Feige said in a recent interview with Bloomberg.

The explanation: In Bloomberg’s new profile of Feige, the Marvel Studios head said the two series would have a connection that hasn’t previously been discussed.

  • “I’m not sure we’ve actually acknowledged that before. But it does (connect),” he said.

Required viewing: Feige said the Disney Plus shows that take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — like “Loki,” “WandaVision,” “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” and “Hawkeye” — will need to be watched by fans as the film franchises continue. The TV shows will connect with the movies, he said.

  • “These episodes will intersect with the movies in a very big way. It’s a totally new form of storytelling that we get to play with and explore,” Feige told Variety in a previous interview.
  • “They’ll be six episodes, eight episodes, 10 episodes with the actors from the films playing their characters,” Feige said. “They’ll be changing, evolving, growing in those event series and then those changes will be reflected in their next film appearances.”

Flashback: Multiple reports from the last few months revealed that Marvel’s upcoming “WandaVision” project — which will center around Scarlett Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and The Vision (Paul Bettany) will lead into the “Doctor Strange” sequel, too, as reported by the Deseret News.
