Loki Chapter 5 introduced a multitude of new variants of the ‘God of Deception’, including a classic version from the comics, a young girl, and the one who stole fans’ attention: Alligator Loki, in English, but known in Latin America as Lokidrilo or Cocodriloki.
The reptile, who introduced himself like the rest of the characters with tiny golden horns, is just as tricky as his human counterparts when he appears. With fans unaware of his true origin, the one who has answered for him is one of the scriptwriters of Loki, a Marvel series for Disney +.
Through an interview for Marvel.com, showrunner Michael Waldron referred to him and especially whether or not he is a variant in truth. “I know the answer, but I want people to ask until the end,” he said.
“They have to take it seriously, maybe it’s a real Loki? Why couldn’t there be an alligator-like version of Loki? For all we know, there may be an alligator universe or whatever. It is the typical irreverent thing that we raise in the series so that the audience takes it seriously, “he explained.
As for their fate in production, the reptile and Kid Loki have been left in the Void, so it wouldn’t be uncommon to see them reappear at some point in Marvel’s MCU. For now, the bite he took from President Loki is a good sign as to which Loki will support.
Loki, chapter 6, arrives this Wednesday, July 14. Delivery will be the finale for the series starring Tom Hiddleston and Sofía Di Martino.
