LOKI Production Designer Says Answers Are "Forthcoming" About Mysterious Fourth Time-Keeper Statue
Loki Production Designer Kasra Farahani has shared some insight into the fourth statue we saw in the Citadel at the End of Time, and it sounds like Marvel Studios has plans to explore the mystery...
The season finale of Loki took us to the Citadel at the End of Time, a location we would later learn was the home of He Who Remains. The Kang the Conqueror Variant was the mastermind behind the Time Variance Authority, and the puppet master of the three robotic Time-Keepers we met in the fourth chapter.
However, as the God of Mischief and Sylvie explored Kang's home, we saw three statues of the Time-Keepers...along with a fourth statue that had been destroyed.
While it was a moment that passed many fans by, others couldn't help but be intrigued by what that meant. Kang seemed pretty insistent that the Time-Keepers never existed, but why would he destroy that fourth statue and, more importantly, whose likeness did it once portray?
Talking to Vanity Fair, Loki Production Designer Kasra Farahani said: "I can’t say anything about it, unfortunately, but the answers will be forthcoming."
In other words, it was there for a reason, and Marvel Studios plans to address this in some way in the not too distant future. He Who Remains was clearly nuts, so we don't know how honest he was being with Loki and Sylvie. If we had to hazard a guess, some sort of big Time-Keeper reveal could be heading our way.
In the same interview, it was suggested to Farahani that the spaceship in the Eternals trailer looks similar to the materials on this asteroid. Was that an intentional decision?
"It is not from my end, at least," she confirmed. "I think it’s just a coincidence, because they are in production in the U.K. and we were in Atlanta."
