'Loki': Let's Talk About That Crazy Final Scene
(This article contains spoilers for the premiere of the Marvel series "Loki" on Disney+) Well. That sure was something. At long last, "Loki" is here. The first episode is quite a trip, as we finally find out where Loki went after he teleported himself out of Stark Tower in "Avengers: Endgame": The middle of the desert, where he's very quickly captured by the Time Variance Authority, or TVA. Loki's handler at the TVA is a guy named Mr. Mobius (Owen Wilson), and it's clear from the early goings that he has a plan for Loki.
The series first teased Loki's gender fluidity with a teaser for the series by showing a document describing his "sex" as "fluid."
"Loki, as a character, has had such a broad and wide-ranging identity," he continues, adding, "He's always been a character that you could never put in a box, that you could never pin down, and I was really pleased that we were able to touch on that in the series."
Both "Loki" director Kate Herron and the show's lead writer Michael Waldron has confirmed the character is gender fluid.
"He's gender-fluid in the Norse mythology and the comics and it felt like an important thing to, as you say, make sure it's canon," Herron previously said, while Waldron noted fans have been "eager" for representation on-screen. "We worked really hard," he noted when discussing Loki's gender depiction.

But now, finally, we do actually have a major character, a headlining character even, who is openly bisexual: Loki himself (Tom Hiddleston).
