The third episode of Loki titled “Lamentis,” officially debuted yesterday, where MCU fans have finally gotten a proper introduction to Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie, who is described as an extremely capable and dangerous variant. Now, Marvel Studios has released a new Loki featurette, teasing more mischief and surprises about the new character.
The video, which you can check out below, also features interviews by Di Martino, Tom Hiddleston, and director Kate Herron as they talked about how important it was to make Sylvie stand out as its own character, even though she’s another version of Loki. It also features new footage from the remaining three episodes.
Loki centers around Tom Hiddleston’s fan-favorite God of Mischief as he gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority, after his escape with the Tesseract during Avengers: Endgame. The TVA, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, arrested him due to the damage he had done with the timeline. Now, he must willingly work with the TVA in order to fix the reality he broke or else face deletion from existence.
Joining Hiddleston are MCU newcomers Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cailey Fleming, and Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane and Wunmi Mosaku. Hiddleston has been playing the character since 2011 in Thor.
Kate Herron is executive producing and directing Loki from a screenplay coming from head writer Michael Waldron (Rick and Morty). Waldron is also the scribe for Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which Loki will reportedly have ties into just like with WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The three episodes are now available for streaming on Disney+, with new episodes streaming every Wednesday through July 14.
