Disney+ Loki Series May Involve Female Version of the Marvel Villain


Yesterday star Sophia Di Martino, who was reportedly in talks to join Marvel's Loki series, has seemingly been confirmed to join Tom Hiddleston's God of Mischief on Disney+ in a major way.

According to Deadline, Di Martino will be a co-lead in the series and may even portray a female version of Loki.

Aside from the possible inclusion of a female Loki, the series will also delve into time travel. "There will be a man on the run quality to it, and we get the chance to explore the more human sides of Loki," executive producer Stephen Broussard said.

Of course, a female Loki isn't the only swerve in terms of the eponymous character. At Comic-Con International in San Diego, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed the primary Loki of the Disney+ series is the same one that stole the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame, prior to his redemption arc.
