‘Loki’ Writers Considered a Sequence Where the God of Mischief Had Lots of Sex

While the God of Mischief may be bisexual and gender fluid, it turns out there’s a limit to the expression of Loki’s sexuality on the Disney+ show. A new behind-the-scenes special, “Assembled: The Making of Loki,” reveals some insight into the writers’ process, including a sexy sequence that didn’t make it into the final series.

One scene in the special offers viewers a glimpse into the writers room, which is anchored by a large white board filled with notes and diagrams the writers used in their process of scripting “Loki.” Included on the board is an eight-point outline of a montage that didn’t make it into the final show, transcribed below by the close-watching eyes at /Film:

The series’ third episode brought a poetic acknowledgment of Loki’s bisexuality, where Loki says he enjoys “a little bit of both” princes and princesses. That’s a far cry from the kind of “crazy mischief” and alien sex that the writers had brainstormed about.

That tasteful bit of dialogue fits in with the “Mad Men” meets “Blade Runner” aesthetic that head writer Michael Waldron said he was going for in a recent interview with IndieWire.

The series’ first season aired its final episode last week. It stars Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the Avengers nemesis/ally who was killed by Thanos in “Infinity War.” The Disney+ series focuses on an earlier version of the character, one who escapes the Battle of New York, causing a branch in the timeline. The escape gets him in trouble with the Time Variant Authority, which enlists him to help catch a female “variant” Loki who has been disregarding other timelines’ rules.

More behind the scenes tidbits are streaming now on “Assembled: The Making of Loki” on Disney+.
