Now we are eagerly waiting for the exciting Loki episode 3.
Now there are the extended credits of Loki episode 2 which give us some hint to the direction of Marvel Studios that might be taking with this latest time-variant character. This episode has introduced a principal new character to the MCU. Now, this show has confirmed a famous casting theory of Sophia Di Martino, who is the female version of Loki. She has the ability to hatch the scheme which has been designed just to spend the time as we know it.
It is very strange about the existence of a female version of Loki. If you want to know about the meaning of the trickster god’s MCU story then you have to watch the episode.
Lady Loki: History of Comic Book
It is already known to us that in traditional Norse mythology, Loki is a character who has the ability to shift the shape and also a trickster who transforms himself into many forms. He is unlimited based on manifesting as a man or as a human. There are several myths of Loki in which the most famous myth is the god of trickster has taken the form of a mare and also is impregnated by a stallion named Svaoilfari, in the result of which Loki gave birth to an eight-legged horse named Sleipnir which becomes the prize steed of Odin.
Until the 2007 Thor comics, the concept of lady Loki did not arouse. The series has set after the Ragnarok in which we have seen a cataclysmic war in which only Thor will survive. After that Thor is reigning in the empty kingdom of Asgard. Thor came out to find out all his fellow Asgardians who are respectively reincarnated in new human bodies without any memories. He just wants to restore them to full power which is included with Loki.
In the comic series, we have seen that Loki has to face many issues like in the Loki: Agent of Asgard has taken the form of a woman at the time of reuniting with his friend and Ally Verity. It has seen that Verity is the only person whom Loki is only physically incapable of lying. This latest form is just a sign of Vulnerability and trust. From the villain of Marvel.
It seems that Di Martino’s Loki has also gone to Enchantress another main Thor villain. In this episode lady, Loki has blond hair just like Enchantress, unlike the traditional dark Loki hair. It is reported that there is at least one foreign language one foreign-language dub of episode 2 which is listed as Di Martino’s character just not as a variant but as “Sylvie”.
In the entire comic Sylvie Luston is definitely used for the Enchantress name in the comics book. It is assuming that this thing suggests few elements of the Enchantress would be carried over the portrayal of Lady Loki but the real enchantress in the second episode e that it is an Asgardian who are searching for the affections of Thor. The second episode also has provided some Enchantress which is nothing but the human has given magical powers by Loki.
Lady Loki In the MCU series
After getting the confirmation about lady Loki and Di Martino’s role, several questions have been aroused in the new Disney + series. The main question is she will be able to take the new form as a part of her strange plan, or it is Loki itself from an alternate timeline.
It is known that the Loki from the Di Martino is the same character as Hiddleston’s Loki from the later point of the timeline of MCU. It is not been appear in the MCU about the adapting of the original Lady Loki storyline which depicts the character of Di Martino like a Loki who also has hijacked the body of another person.
The Loki-based comic of marvel might be given us a brief idea of the core conflict between Loki and Lady Loki. It does not seem to be a clear-cut villain but Loki is also chasing behind the idea like he become the destroyer of Asgard. In Loki: Agent of Asgard it has seen that the fear was embodied in the alternate version of a character called king Loki. On that, the struggle of Loki seriously boiled down, and also desired to write his story once again. And become who he desires to be.
It has been speculated by the Marvel fans that the mystery role of Richard E. Grant is mainly King Loki. If the story turns into it then it is assuming that Grant’s Loki may represent the actual fate such as a cosmic destroyer while Di Martino’s Loki might embody the freedom and also the possibilities which are still unwritten as a story. It seems that the character also may as some possible future for the Loki series.
