Marvel Confirms Loki’s Sexuality in New Episode of the Disney+ Series

Our favorite Asgardian trickster is Marvel’s first canonically queer lead character.

In the third episode of the Marvel Cinematic Universe series, Loki (portrayed by British actor Tom Hiddleston), is having a conversation with Lady Loki (known by the name Sylvie and played by Sophia Di Martino).

Eventually, the topic of relationships comes up and Loki enquires whether or not Sylvie has a beau waiting for her at the end of all this chaos.

“Yeah there is, actually,” she replies. “How about you? You’re a prince. Must have been would-be princesses. Or perhaps another prince?”

“A bit of both,” Loki says. “I suspect the same as you. But nothing ever-“

“-real,” Sylvie finishes.

It’s the moment so many LGBTQ+ fans have been waiting for!

Before the series premiered, fans rejoiced after a teaser for the show listed Loki’s sexuality as fluid.

With the confirmation that Loki is a part of the LGBTQ+ community, fans are even more excited about the series, including series director Kate Herron.

“I know this is a small step but I’m happy, and heart is so full, to say that this is now Canon in #mcu #Loki,” Herron tweeted on Wednesday.

You can stream the full episode of Loki on Disney+ now.
