Marvel Studios Adding Transgender Character to ‘Loki’ Disney+ Series

Over the summer, it was rumored that Marvel Studios was looking to cast a transgender actor for a future Marvel project. Many speculated this character would appear in the upcoming Thor sequel Love and Thunder, but The Illuminerdi has come across new information that relates to Disney+’s TV series, Loki.

The site reported that Marvel Studios plans to introduce Sera, Marvel’s first transgender character, during the first season of Loki. The role is being described as a major supporting character set to appear not only on the series but possibly in future MCU movies as well.


Sera is an Anchorite. The Anchorites are a small group of male, wingless Angels who were kept inside a temple in Heven, the Tenth Realm. Sera was the only one of the Anchorites who identified as a woman, thus being the first and, so far, only major trans woman in Marvel Comics. She also happens to be in a relationship with the character of Angela who is a daughter of Odin.

Production on Loki is expected to begin in the upcoming weeks with more casting announcements coming very soon.
