A new report suggests that Sophia Di Martino has signed on to play a female version of Loki in the character’s Disney Plus series starring Tom Hiddleston.
It was recently revealed that Sophia Di Martino will be appearing alongside Tom Hiddleston in Loki. The British actress is known for a number of roles on television. This past summer Di Martino had a supporting turn in Yesterday. When it came to what part she would be playing in one of the most highly anticipated projects for Disney+, some reports were unspecific. Variety, which initially broke the story, noted that it was unclear who Di Martino would be playing, and that Marvel did not comment on the casting announcement.
However, according to a source close to the production of the Disney+ series, Di Martino’s role may be extremely significant. Speaking to Deadline, the source hinted that the actress would be portraying a female version of Loki. The source added that, in effect, Di Martino would be sharing the role with Hiddleston. If true, that shifts the possibility of what the Loki series could be. It also suggests that Di Martino’s contribution goes far beyond a guest stint or even a major supporting role. But that remains to be confirmed.
Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series is said to follow the character as he travels through time and becomes embroiled in major historical events. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has also confirmed that Loki will tie into the film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
In addition to Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, Marvel Studios’ slate of Disney Plus series includes The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, What If?, Hawkeye, Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel.
Loki is scheduled to debut on Disney Plus in early 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Sophia Di Martino, Tom Hiddleston and the Marvel Studios series on Disney Plus.
