Official Marvel Replica Confirms Name of ‘Loki Variant’

Official Marvel poster shows Sophia Di Martino

We have affirmation that the character released at the conclusion of the previous Loki episode, ostensibly Girl Loki, is named “Sylvie.” This has been our hypothesis for a even though and sharp-eyed fans found that the character, called “The Variant” in English credits, was credited as “Sylvie” in some international marketplaces. Now an formal Marvel reproduction of the character’s helmet exhibits that the Sylvie identify will stick.

Of course, this does not very clear up whether Sylvie is in truth Girl Loki—a immediate Loki variant—or if she’s basically the character Enchantress, most likely masquerading as a Loki so that Loki receives the blame for her actions. Another likelihood is that the Disney+ Loki display has mashed up many figures from the comics into a brand new character. A Girl Loki/Enchantress hybrid, if you will.

The Immediate 1st noted on the Sylvie-branded merch for sale on the Dutch site Zaavi. A pair of replica helmets exhibits Loki’s classic horns as we’ve noticed them in the MCU and the version worn by Di Martino, which has one particular damaged horn. Text that certifies the replicas reads:

This doc certifies that these horned helmets have been influenced by the aspects worn by Loki and Sylvie in the Marvel collection: Loki. This officially liscensed jewelery merchandise ended up manufactured by licensee Saleson, LLC.

And from the solution description:

Acquire on the part of the God of Mischief with the Sylvie and Loki helmet reproduction established. These officially certified parts are encouraged by the strike Disney+ Television set series Loki and obtainable exclusively on Zavvi (British isles and Europe).

Though Sylvie Lushton, in the comics, is provided her powers by Loki to develop into a latter-day Enchantress, it is attainable that Di Martino’s Sylvie was at first a Loki variant who, for factors unidentified, has taken on a distinctly diverse id. The casting of an actress as “Young Sylvie” on IMDb suggests we might see flashbacks or visit her childhood.

A TVA file glimpsed on the show also lists her total title as “Sylvie Laufeydottir,” which would look to indicate she is either a Loki or linked to Loki. Yet an additional selection is that this Sylvie is the direct magical generation of a Loki (as in the comics) or is their baby or sister. Being a Loki creation or relative could also explain why Sylvie has a Loki-like “temporal aura” that tricked the TVA into thinking she was a Loki variant.

It stays unclear regardless of whether we’ll study the responses powering the Sylvie thriller in the upcoming episode. Loki followed her as a result of the time portal, but Sylvie would seem to want to have nothing to do with him appropriate now and has so significantly only been hostile. I’m crossing fingers they’ll have substantial interaction quickly, but for all we know, the very first handful of minutes could see the TVA acquiring Loki yet again though Sylvie vanishes. What we do know is that she seemingly has a central function to participate in in the show’s storyline and that we’re going to see the fallout from her “bombing” of the Sacred Timeline.

Since the start of the series, it’s been hinted that the TVA is not what they seem to be to be (do the Time Keepers even exist? Is Choose Renslayer pulling all the strings? Is the villainous Kang the Conqueror?). Even if the TVA is not corrupted and getting run for sinister motives, at its heart Loki is concerned with the nature of chaotic no cost will as opposed to predestination and rigid get.

As these kinds of, even though Di Martino’s character has been presented thus considerably as a criminal and a killer, likelihood are we may possibly uncover she’s on the “right” side of matters or has extremely very good explanations for accomplishing what she’s performing. I’m thrilled to understand additional about her, and she has piqued the fascination of many Loki aficionados, to say the minimum. See you tomorrow, Sylvie enthusiasts.
