Recently, it was revealed that Yesterday star Sophia Di Martino is in talks to join Tom Hiddleston in Marvel’s Loki. Well, according to Deadline, her character will reportedly be a new take on the God of Mischief.
It seems that the actress will portray a female version of Loki. The report claims the information is from a source close to the show’s production. Effectively, the star would share the role with Hiddleston. In the comics, Loki is a shapeshifter and has become a woman before, so this concept is not too surprising.
Hiddleston’s upcoming series is one of many original series Marvel Studios is developing for Disney+. The slate includes The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk. The series will allow a number of characters to develop like never before and will introduce new ones to the MCU who will then segway into the films.
Loki will be directly tied into Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. This makes sense given the version of Hiddleston’s character appearing in the series will be from the alternate timeline created when the Asgardian stole the Tesseract in the past during the events of Avengers: Endgame. If Di Martino is playing an alternate version of Loki, this could mean her character could make the leap into the MCU films.
