In a recent interview with The Digital Fix, Kevin Wright, the executive producer of the Loki series, revealed that there is a person who ensures inconsistencies never occur in the MCU. He named the said mystery man Drew River, who is the Marvel Studios’ go-to guy for getting the upcoming events of any project verified. Since the entire franchise is a connected universe, any inconsistency can spell doom for it, which is why River is one of the most important people in the franchise.

Not only is he important, but he’s so important that he has been given a special designation in Marvel Studios for his said tasks. Wright said that whenever a script is completed, it is sent directly to River to get overviewed, and if he finds any inconsistencies, he flags the writers about it. Therefore, even after such a long time since the inception of the cinematic universe, eagle-eyed fans have managed to find almost no errors in the events of the MCU.
