    "It felt like an important thing."

    It's been confirmed that Loki is genderfluid — but for most major Marvel fans, that won't come as a big surprise.

    Loki's gender fluidity has long been speculated, and in a promo for the new Disney+ series, it was finally referenced.

    She continued, "He's gender fluid in the Norse mythology and the comics and it felt like an important thing to, as you say, make sure it's canon."

    Meanwhile, Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in the MCU, says he's always known about Loki's gender.

    "It's always been there in the comics for some time and in the history of the character for hundreds, if not thousands of years," Tom recently told Inverse.

    He added, "Breadth and range of identity contained in the character has been emphasized and is something I was always aware of when I was first cast 10 years ago...We were very aware, this is something we felt responsible for."
