RUMOR: Tom Hiddleston’s ‘Loki’ Casting Marvel’s First Transgender Character

A new rumor recently surfaced online claiming that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series is casting Marvel’s first transgender character.

Just weeks after Kevin Feige mentioned that Marvel Studios were looking to include more LGBTQ+ representation, a new rumor suggests that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series is looking to cast Marvel’s first transgender character. The report from The Illuminerdi claims that the role will be a major supporting character in the Loki series, with potential plans of appearing in future movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The site claims that Sera will be a major character in Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. Sera first appeared in Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #1 written by Kieron Gillen and Marguerite Bennett back in 2015. Sera was originally one of the Anchorites, a wingless angel locked away in the tenth realm, and she was the only member of the group who identified as a woman. During the series, Sera married Thor’s sister Angela. Including Sera in Tom Hiddleston’s Loki would be a great step forward in LGBTQ+ representation for the MCU, so it’ll be interesting to see how the rumor plays out.
