We have arrived wait for the unexpected on Marvel Studios’ Loki. Different timelines, crazy callbacks, multiple variants, and, most recently, an alligator with horns. The character, called “Alligator Loki”, was introduced in the post-credit sequence of LokiThe fourth episode, “The Nexus Event,” but came to the fore in episode five, “I travel in mystery. “With a new fan favorite now firmly established, the team behind the show talked about the important character, from what it looked like before to how to act on the set — and whether or not it’s, in fact, and Loki.
“I know, but I want people to ask me,” Loki chief Michael Waldron he told Marvel.com. “I want it to be the next big Marvel debate. Is Alligator Loki really a Loki or not?” Okay, so we won’t get an answer to this question, but other questions are answered in the interview. Like: since Alligator Loki isn’t inspired by any comics, where did the idea come from?
“We talked [how] we want to meet different versions of Loki in this show, “Waldron said.” I was just like, I should be an Alligator Loki. And it’s like, well, why? Because it’s green. “It’s a feeling Loki The actor himself, Tom Hiddleston, was a lot of fun. “The question is,‘ Is it really Loki? Or is it just green? “” Hiddleston told Marvel. “It’s such a fun question that [the Lokis] all the way around. One thing about Loki is that Loki loves to be right. And everyone has a different opinion on this alligator. ”
And while green might be the main reason for Alligator Loki’s existence, it wasn’t so in the industry. On the set, before the character was created in CGI, it was represented by an alligator filled with blue. With googly eyes. Here is a photo.
Once that was done it just came down to what, exactly, does Alligator Loki look like? And according to Loki directed by Kate Herron, the answer was not immediately obvious and several versions were conceived. “We had some early versions when we were doing visual effects that were probably a little too cute, in the sense that this was a bit more like an alligator type cartoony,” Herron said. “But it just got more and more fun and it looked more like a real alligator that just happened to carry horns. That was the sweet spot. Once we landed in that place where he felt like a real alligator, but with some sort of slightly fascinating horns, here’s where we were like, “Oh, there are. ‘”
Here it really is. Chances are we won’t see Alligator Loki in next week’s final episode — but if there’s more seasons or more time spent with some of the variants, maybe we could bite a few more hands at some point. “It’s so silly, but it also makes total sense,” Waldron said. “We almost have to take him seriously, as he might be [a Loki]? Why shouldn’t there be an alligator version of Loki? For all we know, this is an alligator universe or whatever. It’s just the kind of irreverent thing that, in this show, we play straight and make the audience take it seriously. “
