"I would say that details are marked in but it is something acknowledged," Kate Herron, the director of the Disney+ series told Insider. "He's gender fluid in the Norse mythology and the comics and it felt like an important thing to, as you say, make sure it's canon."
"I know how many people identify with Loki in particular and are eager for that representation, especially with this character," Michael Waldron, the head writer on Loki, said. "We worked really hard."
“Breadth and range of identity contained in the character has been emphasized and is something I was always aware of when I was first cast 10 years ago,” said Tom Hiddleston. “I know it was important to Kate Herron and Michael Waldron and to the whole team. And we were very aware, this is something we felt responsible for.”
