We came to expect the unexpected on Marvel Studios’ Loki. Different timelines, crazy callbacks, multiple variations and most recently an alligator with horns. The character, called “Alligator Loki”, was introduced in the post-credits sequence of Lokithe fourth episode of “The Nexus Event” but came to the fore in episode five, “Journey into the mystery. “With a new fan favorite now firmly established, the team behind the series spoke about the out-of-the-ordinary character, what he looked like before and the way he acted on set – and whether or not he is, in fact, a Loki.
“I know, but I want people to wonder” Loki chief writer Michael Waldron tell marvel.com. “I want this to be the next big Marvel debate. Is Alligator Loki really a Loki or not? Okay, so we won’t have an answer to this question, but other questions are answered in the interview. Like: since Alligator Loki isn’t inspired by any comic book, where did the idea come from?
“We were talking about [how] we want to meet many different versions of Loki in this show, ”said Waldron. “I was just like, there should be an Alligator Loki. And it’s like, well, why? Because it is green. ” It’s a feeling Loki the actor himself, Tom Hiddleston, found it very funny. “The question is, ‘Is he really Loki? Or is it just green? ‘ Hiddleston told Marvel. “It’s such a funny question that [the Lokis] everything is bickering. One thing about Loki is that Loki likes to be right. And they all have a different opinion on this alligator.
And while green may have been the main reason Alligator Loki existed, it wasn’t like that on set. On the set, before the character was created in CGI, he was represented by a blue plush alligator. With wide eyes. Here’s a photo.
Once done, what exactly does Alligator Loki look like? And according to Loki director Kate Herron, the answer was not immediately obvious and several versions were designed. “We had a few early versions when we were doing visual effects that were probably a little too cute, in the sense that it looked a bit more like some kind of cartoon alligator,” Herron said. “But it just got funnier and funnier as it looked like a real alligator that wore horns. It was the perfect spot. Once we landed in that place where it looked like a real alligator, but with a slightly flippant kind of horns, that’s where we were like, “Oh, here it is. ‘”
It is there indeed. It’s likely that we won’t see Alligator Loki in next week’s final episode, but if there are more seasons or more time spent with some of the variants, he could perhaps bite more of one’s hands. given moment. “It’s so stupid, but it also makes perfect sense,” said Waldron. “You almost have to take it seriously, like maybe it is [a Loki]? Why wouldn’t there be an alligator version of Loki? As far as we know, it’s an alligator universe or whatever. It’s just the kind of irreverent thing that in this show we play straight out and make audiences take it seriously.
Well, we seriously love the little rascal. Visit Marvel.com to learn more about Alligator Loki and the other variant Lokis too.
