Loki on Disney +: the bisexuality of the God of Malice confirmed in episode 3, the director reacts

Be careful, spoilers. It is advisable to have seen the third episode of the Loki series before continuing to read this article.

While the first episode of Loki evoked the non-binarity of the God of Malice, the third episode of the series now mentions the bisexuality of the Marvel character, embodied for already 10 years by Tom Hiddleston.

The new series from Marvel Studios on Disney + is therefore closer to the characteristics of Loki in the comics, in which Odin refers to the God of Mischief as being "her child who is neither her son nor her daughter".

If the Marvel film franchise has never mentioned the non-binarity and bisexuality of the character of Tom Hiddleston, the series Loki finally explores them, thanks to the involvement of its director Kate Herron. She also split a tweet after the upload of episode 3:

“From the moment I joined Loki's team, it was important for me, and it was a goal, to recognize Loki's bisexuality. It's part of him and it's part of me too. know it's a small step but i'm so happy and my heart full to say it's hot in the MCU now. "

In the third episode of the series, Loki is roaming Lamentis-1 with Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), which we do not yet know if she is Lady Loki or the Enchantress. While the two evoke their romantic pasts during a discussion, Loki makes it clear that he has had suitors but also suitors as Prince of Asgard.

The British actress also added an important detail to Kate Herron's tweet on the lighting and colors used in the scenes of episode 3. Sophia Di Martino refers to bisexual lighting ("Bisexual lighting" in English ) which is the simultaneous use of pink, purple and blue lighting to highlight bisexual characters in movies, television and in advertising.

It is a cinematographic process, through studio lighting, which is used as "emancipatory audiovisual device" wanting to combat the striking under-representation of bisexuality in the media according to George Pierpoint of the BBC News. The colors used also refer to the bisexual pride flag.

So this is a small but important step forward for the representation of the LGBTQIA + community within the MCU before discovering the first openly gay superhero Phastos, embodied by Brian Tyree Henry, in the movie The Eternals.
