Beta Ray Bill (Loki)
Fans have been waiting to see Beta Ray Bill in the MCU for who knows how long and he was seemingly snubbed for a guest-spot in Thor: Ragnarok. But, perhaps Loki (Hiddleston) will run into the alien demigod at some point during his upcoming adventures.
As we mentioned in previous slides, the God of Mischief will use the Tesseract to travel the universe in Disney Plus’ Loki series. His destination and goal are still unclear, though we can certainly count on Loki mingling with a new company on his travels. Who knows, Beta Ray Bill might even make an introduction early on into the series.
Come to think of it, Loki could feasibly introduce Bill to 2012’s Thor with the intent of distracting them both. In doing so, Loki would gain the opening he needs to evade his brother’s grasp. Of course, Heimdall can easily locate the God of Mischief.
There is, however, a chance that Bill will get his start in Thor: Love And Thunder rather than in Disney’s Loki series. His primary weapon in the comics was Stormbreaker—which Thor is carrying at the moment—so the two could fight over the right to his ax. They actually disputed the right to wield Mjolnir in the comics, though the bout concluded with Odin crafting Stormbreaker for Bill.
With those factors being noted, Thor losing his ax to Beta Ray Bill could segway into Jane Foster’s rise to God of Thunder. She’d require a new version of Mjolnir be forged or duel Bill for Stormbreaker, though our guess is Jane will wield a hammer. Natalie Portman was gifted a replica of Mjolnir with her during her appearance at SDCC 2019 after all.
Marvel Studios’ Loki is scheduled to launch on Disney Plus in 2021. Thor: Love And Thunder is set to release on November 5, 2021.
