With anticipation building for the upcoming Thor sequel and the promise of more Chris Hemsworth shirtlessness, new attention is being paid to Thor’s devious brother, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston in the film adaptations) and the character’s sexuality.
Writer Al Ewing is currently penning a solo comic for Loki entitled, Loki: Agent of Asgard, set to be released by Marvel in 2014. Ewing was recently asked by a fan how Loki’s sexuality will be portrayed in the comic given that Loki is bisexual and a gender-changing shape-shifter in traditional Norse mythology.
As The Quire reports, Ewing responded to the question, which was posted to his tumblr account, with a rejoinder sure to ignite the imaginations of many a fanboy (and girl), “Yes, Loki is bi and I’ll be touching on that. He’ll shift between genders occasionally as well.” Whether or not Loki will be bisexual and a gender-flexible shape-shifter in any upcoming films is still anyone’s guess.
