There is little doubt that Loki had a lot of amazing moments but most fans still prefer the scene where Loki and Sylvie subtly confirmed their sexuality. So what does Tom Hiddleston think about the memorable moment? The Avengers: Endgame actor has spoken up about Loki coming out as bisexual and expressed his support for the God of Mischief!

Tom Hiddleston recently took part in Variety's Actors on Actors series where he was paired up with Lily James. When James mentioned Loki's sexuality, Hiddleston was quick to open up about the brief yet memorable moment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe series.

"Back from my early days of researching the character in the ancient myths, the identity of Loki was fluid in every aspect and in gender, in sexuality," Hiddleston said. "It's a very ancient part of the character and I think I thought about it ... It hadn't emerged in the stories we've told. And I was really pleased and privileged, actually, that it came up in the series."

He then pointed out that it wasn't a grand reveal but believes it's a great start.

"It's a small step. There's so much more to do. But the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to reflect the world we live in. So it was an honor to bring that up," Hiddleston said.

"It was really important to me. It was really important to [director] Kate Herron and [showrunner] Michael Waldron, and I'm pleased that we could bring it into our story," he concluded.

It's great to know that Tom Hiddleston fully supports Loki's sexuality and is eager to explore the character's story even further. Needless to say, we can't wait to see more of the God of Mischief in the future.

Loki has been confirmed for a second season. However, Season 2 has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
