Tom Hiddleston hopes his character Loki coming out as bisexual is ‘meaningful’

Tom Hiddleston is opening up about the upcoming story of his longtime Marvel character Loki, which brings the god of mischief closer to his comic book origins.

The actor reprized his role as Loki for a new Disney+ series with the same name as his character.

“I was really honored to be asked,” Hiddleston told The Guardian in an interview published over the weekend of his TV series role. “We all wanted to maintain the integrity of the character — I wanted to make sure we didn’t lose the bits that people loved when doing something new.”

“I also hoped that Loki was meaningful to people who came across as bisexual,” Hiddleston said. “It was a small step, and there is a way to go. But it was definitely important for all of us.”

Marvel Comics portrays Loki as queer and gender-fluid. While Marvel Studios Confirmed Loki’s Sexuality Clip released ahead of Disney+ show premiereHiddleston’s character makes an allusion to being bisexual in one scene, in which a version of herself is known as Lady Loki, who is visited by Sylvie.

Sylvie asks Loki if she “will be a princess, or maybe another prince?”

“A bit of both. I have the same doubts as you,” Loki replies.

“Loki” director Kate Heron tweeted about the conversation after the episode aired.

“From the moment I joined Loki, it was very important to me, and my goal was to accept Loki as bisexual,” Heron wrote on twitter in June. “It’s a part of who he is and who I am too. I know it’s a small step, but I’m happy, and my heart is so full that it’s now canon to say [the] MCU.”
