When Feige announced that ‘Loki’ would play a central role in the Multiverse Saga, he may have inadvertently unveiled a crucial piece of the puzzle.

In a pivotal scene from the season 2 premiere of ‘Loki’, the audience is transported to a Time Variance Authority bunker, where a lingering shot on a particular door sent the internet into a speculative spiral. The door bore an uncanny resemblance to the entrance of Cerebro beneath the Xavier Mansion, a connection that fans of the X-Men couldn’t ignore.
With Kamala Khan’s recent transformation into a mutant and Feige’s cryptic teases, the stage seemed set for an X-Men introduction. But Farahani, confronted on the Phase Zero podcast, was quick to dispel the rumors.

“No, I don’t even know the doors people are talking about. We were looking at subterranean missile bunkers, missile silos, from the Cold War era. There’s some insanely heavy fortified doors in those bunkers and that’s where the doors come from.”
A statement that leaves us pondering – is this the Marvel way of misdirection, or have we, the audience, taken the bait of a well-crafted nothingburger?

One thing, however, is certain – the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to be a treasure trove of secrets, and we, the audience, are more than eager to dive in and explore.
