It seems as though Loki Episode 1’s credits might have accidentally revealed who this Marvel Studios’ series’ mysterious villain really is.
WARNING: Before continuing with this article, I have to let you know that there are potential SPOILERS in here.
Right, back to who this mysterious Loki villain be?
Loki Episode 1 really set up this show pretty well.
One of the big questions people found themselves asking when the episode ended was who really is this mysterious murdering variant?
Owen Wilson’s Mobius reveals at the end of the episode that the murdering variant is Loki himself.
Wait? What? Loki is the murdering variant? That makes no sense! And why would Mobius recruit Loki to hunt down himself?
There might be an explanation, and I really like it.
Did Loki Episode 1’s credits reveal the identity of its mysterious villain?
The credits of Loki Episode 1 revealed that someone called Sarah Irwin played a character referred to as “Variant Double”.
So, according to a recent post on Instagram from one of Loki’s actors, Sophia Di Martino, social media Irwin is her stunt double.
Putting two and two together, Sophia Di Martino must be playing the villain under the hood.
It’s been reported that Di Martino will be playing a female version of Loki in the show.
Then, if you add the news that Loki is gender-fluid – which was revealed in one of Loki’s promo videos – then it becomes very clear that the murdering variant is the female version of Loki.
Wow. It’ll be interesting to see Tom Hiddleston’s Loki go up against a female version of himself.
There have also been rumours stating that Kid Loki, a younger version of the character, and Classic Loki, an older one, will be making appearances in the series.
