Welcome to OTTplay Now You Know, the podcast that gives you lesser-known trivia and facts and even anecdotes of popular films and shows that you might not have known until now. I'm your host Nikhil.
Loki is an American television series, based on Marvel comics, where Tom Hiddleston portrays the titular God of Mischief. This is the third TV series in the MCU after WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and the series takes place after the events of Avengers: End Game. Loki has won several awards including the People's Choice Award for The Best Show of 2021 and the Favourite Male TV star. The series has been nominated for numerous other awards as well.
So, let's begin the trivia for this hit series then.
1. In order to prepare to play Agent Mobius in the show, Owen Wilson did not read the comics. Instead, he roped in Tom Hiddleston to explain the show’s plot and the MCU to him.
2. Marvel Comics writer and editor Mark Gruenwald must surely have had a difficult time in his career, considering he was tasked with maintaining continuity across the Marvel Universe. As a tribute to him, all Time Variance Authority agents in the Loki comics were made to look like Gruenwald.
3. Mr. DNA from the iconic Jurassic Park film was the inspiration behind the animated mascot Miss Minutes.
4. The title of the Loki series shuttles between several different forms, which actor Tom Hiddleston explains as "integrating the disparate fragments of the many selves that Loki can be."
5. The costumes of Sophia Di Martino, who plays Sylvie on the show, were altered to include concealed zippers. This was done so that the actress could nurse her newborn between takes.
You can watch this series exclusively on Disney + Hotstar
