“Loki”: The secret behind the series logo
“Loki” is coming to Disney Plus soon. Tom Hiddleston has explained what the mysterious logo is all about.
What is the “Loki” logo about? Disney
“Loki” is coming to Disney Plus on June 11th! The makers behind the series seem to be so convinced of the concept that a second season is almost guaranteed. And how could it be otherwise? After all, Loki, the god of discord, is a really exciting character who has more than just a cool saying in-store. And the character itself is also the inspiration behind the constantly changing logo of the series, as “Loki” actor Tom Hiddleston explained in an interview.
What the “Loki” logo is all about.
In an interview with Empire, Hiddleston spoke about the character of the god we got to know well from the “Thor” films and the “Avengers” series. The fact that the individual letters of the logo are constantly changing their shape was a stylistic decision that has to do with the character itself, explains the actor: “ Loki is the personification of the shapeshifter. It is in his nature that in the Marvel Universe you never know for sure whether he is a hero, villain, or anti-hero. “ The logo, which changes the shape, should make it clear to the audience that the show“ Loki ”has identity and integrity as its theme. “About the many ‘I’s’ we can be and maybe also about the many ‘I’s’ we are, ”continued Hiddleston. “ I find the idea behind it very exciting because I’ve always considered Loki to be a very complex construct. Who is this figure who can wear so many masks, keep changing its shape, and apparently also changing the emotions that are visible on the outside in a matter of seconds? ”
The Loki from the series is not the Loki we know.
The tragic thing about the character Loki is that we could watch her on her way and her development: We saw him as a villain in “The Avengers” and as an outcast and unloved son in “Thor”. We saw his charming and funny side and we saw that he is capable of noble deeds. And then we saw him die in The Avengers: Infinity War. And the Loki we’ll see on the show is different. He has never gone through this development, he is – actually – still the villain we saw in “The Avengers”. But he will also try to restore the broken timeline. It remains to be seen how successful this will be and which facets and “I’s” we will still experience from Loki!
