The director of Loki, which now airs on Disney +, said Tom Hiddleston’s bisexuality has become new canon in the MCU.
Since I joined Loki, it has been very important for me to show that Loki is bisexual. This was my goal. This is part of who he is. And it is also a part of me. I know this is a small step, but I’m happy that now it is KVM canon – wrote the director of the third episode, Keith Herron, on her Twitter.
In response, the audience expressed their gratitude to the director for such a move.
Thank you so much for this! It really means a lot to a lot of people, especially the LGBTQ + community, according to one of thousands of similar posts.
In the third episode, Loki himself hinted at his orientation when, in a scene on board the train, he and Sylvia talked about love. Fans have noticed that the episode is characteristically tinged with shades of blue.
In the comics, the god of deception was indeed bisexual. However, Marvel is not famous for including LGBTQ + relationships and characters in their projects. In part, this may be due to the ban on such content in some countries, including Russia, on which the income of the parent company Disney depends. But in countries where propaganda is banned, Disney + streaming is not yet available, so studios have plenty of room to expand.
Roskomnadzor recently warned the mouse house against showing a cartoon with a gay protagonist in Russia. True, they did not intend to release it.
