Warning: There are spoilers ahead for Loki episode 3!
Prior to its release, the creative team behind Loki talked up the God of Mischief’s fluid sexuality. However, the third episode of the show is the first time that Loki has acknowledged onscreen that he’s bisexual. During a conversation with his “Variant,” Loki admitted that he’s had lovers from both genders. He also implied that his Variant is likely bisexual as well.
Shortly after the episode debuted, Loki director Kate Herron shared her response to that scene.
From the moment I joined @LokiOfficial it was very important to me, and my goal, to acknowledge Loki was bisexual. It is a part of who he is and who I am too. I know this is a small step but I’m happy, and heart is so full, to say that this is now Canon in #mcu #Loki pic.twitter.com/lz3KJbewx8

This is also the first occasion that the MCU Loki has even acknowledged any romantic entanglements at all. During his appearances in the Thor and Avengers films, Loki seemed more in love with the idea of power, as opposed to another person. If anything, Loki was in love with himself. But it’s possible that the events of his current series may change that.
How do you feel about this revelation about Loki’s sexuality? Let us know in the comment section below!
