The Loki character is revealed to be is gender-fluid in a new clip for the Disney+ Marvel show Loki.
In a preview trailer for the Tom Hiddleston show, which is set to begin streaming this week, a file documenting Loki Laufeyson’s Time Variance Authority has ‘FLUID’ listed under the gender.
The series also stars Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer and Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, as well as Sophia Di Martino and Richard E. Grant.
The timeline of the show follows the Asgardian in the wake of 2018’s Avengers: Endgame.
Hiddleston was first seen as the character in Thor in 2011, and has gone on to appear in the role in 2012’s The Avengers, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok and 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.
Loki’s gender has been speculated upon in the wake of a comic book in which Odin called Loki, ‘my son, and my daughter, and my child who is both.’
Loki’s gender fluidity was also topical in the 2019 book Loki: Where Mischief Lies from writer Mackenzi Lee.
