In June, Disney CEO Bob Chapek called “Loki” Disney+’s biggest premiere ever. The MCU show also makes history with Marvel’s first openly bisexual main character.

In episode three of “Loki,” Hiddleston’s titular character opened up about his sexuality during a conversation with a female timeline-hopping version of Sylvie. Discussing romantic partners, Sylvie asked the villain, “What about you? You’re a prince. Must have been princesses. Or maybe some other prince.”

“A bit of both. I have the same doubts as you,” replied Loki.

Following the episode’s release, series director Kate Heron confirmed on Twitter and observed that the scene established Loki as the MCU’s first openly bisexual character. “From the moment I joined @LokiOfficial, this was very important to me, and my goal, to accept Loki as bisexual,” she wrote.

She continued, “It’s a part of who he is and who I am. I know it’s a small step but I’m happy, and my heart is so full that it’s canon in #mcu now.”

The first season of ‘Loki’, which premiered on June 11, is available to watch on Disney+ Hotstar in India. ‘Loki’ is the third of Marvel’s scripted TV series to debut on Disney+. The first, ‘WandaVision’, ended with an episode that was labeled as a series finale.

Marvel’s second offering, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” is billed as an ongoing drama series (it collected five Emmy nominations in the category on Tuesday).
