Loki, which takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), sees MCU alum Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief, Loki, taken prisoner by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) for crimes against the Sacred Timeline.

Also starring in the show is Sophia di Martino (Flowers, Yesterday, Into the Badlands) who made her debut in the second episode of Marvel Studios’ Loki. She plays Sylvie/Lady Loki — a variant who has been wreaking havoc throughout human history by visiting various apocalypses.

Recently, di Martino spoke out about how Marvel Studios supported her as a working mom during Loki filming. She posted on Twitter:

It’s not easy being a working Mama! Genius #christinewada [costume designer Christine Wada] designed Sylvie’s costume & added concealed zippers so I could pump easily & nurse my baby between takes. Little (big) things like this that made it possible for me to do my job & be a parent. I’m forever grateful

No spoilers here, but it certainly seems that di Martino’s character could play a huge role in the Marvel Multiverse moving forward.

The first season of Hiddleston’s Loki will have six episodes, but reports indicate that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and his team are pushing for at least three seasons of the show about the Prince of Asgard.
