While Loki was recently the biggest show that everybody was talking about, it has now almost been replaced by Rick and Morty. However, there was a time when Loki was going the 'Rick and Morty' way, or at least, that's what the makers claim.

Michael Waldron, the creator of the show, spoke during the Ringer-Verse podcast about a few scenes that didn't make it to Loki's final cut. No guesses, Rick and Morty types scenes were one of them.

He spoke about planning a Rick and Morty-style montage of Loki with the Infinity Gauntlet. "At the end, it's just kind of like, 'What does it matter? The TVA exists, they're the greatest power." Ultimately, the team went ahead with Chrono-Monitor Loki.

Michael further revealed that Sylvie, who is Loki's female variant, would have a different opening in episode 3. While currently she tries to infiltrate Hunter C20's mind and turns emotional, the scene was conceived differently earlier. In the unused version of the scene, Sylvie was attacked by people at the beach bar, including kids. The scene would have ended with Sylvie 'kicking an armadillo with laser mount like a soccer ball, into the ocean.'

A web series developed on the popular Marvel character, Loki explores the world of 'God of Mischief' more closely. He gets involved in the TVA (Time Variance Authority) that brings him into a new world on the pretext of 'righting the wrong'. There, Loki meets his look-alikes and learns more about them and himself.

Starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the web series also sees Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Tara Strong, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Sasha Lane, Jack Veal, DeObia Oparei, Richard E. Grant, and Jonathan Major in pivotal roles.
