The writer of the television series Loki and the movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the same, michael waldronsomething that makes sense if we think about what both projects have to do with the timeline and the multiverse.
Now, in a recent interview, Waldron expressed his regret at the ways certain things were established in Loki. For the writer, some of the rules of the multiverse were so clearly defined that they are now too strict for use in other projects.
We worked really hard on Loki to make it as tight as possible. But there were times when I thought, ‘Oh shit, I wish I hadn’t defined it so clearly. I don’t know why I had to, be so specific in my time travel TV series about the rules of the multiverse.
Now, this has its advantages, and the writer is grateful to have worked on the sequel to Doctor Strange with prior knowledge about how the multiverse works.
But I was glad that I came with institutional knowledge of the multiverse and was able to get the Doctor Strange creative team on the same page with me on everything. Because just like with Loki, that’s the most important thing when you’re dealing with this.
Waldron finished by saying that developing these shared rules is the most important thing in this kind of storytelling, otherwise it would all get too confusing.
Everyone needs to have a shared language of all these things, otherwise it can get pretty confusing.
