WHAT IF…? Why Will TVA Be Left Out of The Scenario?

WHAT IF... Why Will TVA Be Left Out of The Scenario

Loki has always made it very clear that it would be the most crucial series in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, at least for a reasonable amount of time.

By telling the story of a character who is dead in the main timeline, the series has turned Loki into a sort of link between releases, connecting him to WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Madness Multiverse and expanding the universe into a chaotic multiverse created by Sylvie.

One of the most significant new things that Loki brought us was the concept of TVA (Temporal Variance Authority), which will be of great importance to the future of Marvel as we know it.

After all, it was from there that  Kang (He Who Remains) variant controlled the world for a long time, pruning out whoever was messing with the sacred timeline and letting the rhythm of things go according to what he planned.

The next Marvel project will arrive today (11) with the release of What If…? Aside from being the first animated series in the MCU, it will be the production that should most address the essence of what the multiverse means.

Addressing several ramifications on the timeline, one might assume the TVA would play an important role in the animated series; after all, that’s where it all began. So the importance is there, but it won’t be that vital.

In an interview with io9, the series’ screenwriter A.C. Bradley joined director Bryan Andrews to comment on what’s ahead in What If…?

“We were already deep in development and writing the show by the time Loki got up and running,” said Bradley, who signed onto What If back in the fall of 2018. “So we had a meeting and talked about what we wanted to do with the multiverse—kind of as an aside—because Doctor Strange 2 was still in the very early stages.,” Bradley revealed.

The initial idea for What If…? was to focus only on telling the alternate versions on the timeline and bringing out whatever was possible from the multiverse. Bradley left much of the multiverse rules, such as TVA, to  Loki and Doctor Strange 2 productions.

“Basically I was like, OK, I’m just going to go and show all the fun we can have in the multiverse,” Bradley said. “I’m going to show all the things that can happen and the places we can go, I’m not going to lay down any serious rules I’m not going to touch anything to do with the TVA.'”

According to Andrews, there wasn’t much collaboration between What If…? and any other Marvel project, just a general understanding of what could and couldn’t be shown.
