Until the moment that many expected. Marvel fans were aware of Loki’s fluid genre, but it was just made official in the third episode of the exclusive Disney Plus series. The confirmation came in the middle of Pride Month, cementing Loki’s status as an LGBTQ icon.
Loki has freely switched between male and female forms with his shapeshifting powers and has been shown to be drawn to both genders in the comics. It was only a matter of time before the same thing happened in the Marvel series.
Loki’s bisexuality was confirmed in a scene from episode 3, titled “Lamentis,” when Thor’s brother tried to learn more about Lady Loki, who later identified herself as Sylvie. After sneaking aboard a train that was transporting the world’s rich to a ship destined to get them off the planet, Loki asked Sylvie if there was “a lucky boyfriend” waiting for her somewhere.
Sylvie admitted that she had managed to maintain a serious long-distance relationship with a postman, before guessing that Loki, as prince of Asgard, must have met some “would-be princesses or perhaps another prince.” Loki smiled and confirmed that there was “a bit of both.”
The confirmation of Loki’s sexual orientation goes beyond being a reference to the comics. It’s an affirmation for the many LGBTQ fans of the MCU who feel a connection to Loki, due to the character’s battles with his identity and acceptance within his own family and his desire to prove himself despite being different.
MARVEL | The Ant-Man theory
According to a theory shared on TikTok, Marvel’s TVA is located in a city located in the Quantum Realm, and has already been shown in the MCU through the Ant-Man and the Wasp movie, precisely in the Quantum Realm, where the time and space are not what they seem. Since TVA and the Quantum Realm share this same characteristic, fans believe they share the same place.
The idea almost seems more like fact than theory. The Avengers already use the Quantum Realm to travel through time in Avengers: Endgame, so it makes sense that the TVA uses it as well. If we add to this that Kang the Conqueror, the villain of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, is a time traveler and has ties to the TVA according to the comics.
