LOKI Once Featured The God Of Mischief Wielding The Infinity Gauntlet And "Doing Crazy Mischief, a.k.a. Sex"

A behind-the-scenes photo from Assembled: The Making of Loki reveals a scrapped montage from the series that would have seen the God of Mischief travelling through time and gaining the Infinity Gauntlet...

Things got pretty crazy over the course of Loki's six episodes, but would it surprise you to learn that at one point the series was shaping up to be even barmier than what ended up hitting Disney+? In a screenshot from the Assembled: The Making of Loki special that debuted yesterday (shared by Slash Film), we see a whiteboard with a description of a montage that didn't make it into the show.

Basically, it sounds like Loki was going to be allowed to escape from the TVA, get everything he wanted, and then come to the realisation that none of it mattered because of his lack of free will. 

Here's what the list, pictured alongside Head Writer Michael Waldron, featured:

  • Loki visiting different time periods
  • Doing crazy mischief, aka sex
  • Pivots to taking power
  • Collecting Infinity Stones
  • Has the Gauntlet, holds power, more sex, bi, alien, etc.
  • Alone in the throne room. He’s taken power but is infected with thoughts that it isn’t "real" because of TVA’s control over free will
  • Returns to the TVA, gauntlet’s power down, Mobius is waiting for him
  • Loki gives honest answers to Mobius. Mobius shows the sheer power of TVA.

This likely would have been extremely expensive to put together, but the sight of Loki with the Infinity Gauntlet would have been pretty cool. Still, the montage was going to be a very long way to get to a point the episode itself managed to with a simple conversation, and it doesn't really make sense for the TVA to allow the God of Mischief to cause such chaos before realising that everything he was doing was simply because they wanted to make a point about free will!

Regardless, these early ideas might explain why the first piece of concept art for Loki (which was never officially released) showed the title character in a 1970s setting. 

Do you think this montage had a place in the final cut of Loki
