A new report from the Illuminerdi suggests that the Marvel Studios Disney Plus Series Loki will introduce Sera, a transgender character first introduced in 2014’s Angela: Asgard’s Assassin, to the MCU in a strong supporting role.
Should this report prove to be correct, Sera would be the first transgender character to be heavily featured in a Marvel Studios project. In the comics, the character is an Anchorite, a group of male angels from the previously unknown Tenth Realm: Heven. She was featured heavily in Angela: Asgard’s Assassin as she first helped, then fell in love with Angela before eventually marrying her. Sera’s inclusion in the series could very well indicate that it will introduce Heven and, potentially Angela. Though the trades suggested she might be playing a female version of Loki, actress Sophia Di Martino’s role in the series has never been clearly defined, so it’s possible that she could be playing Angela, if they are including that character in the series.
Loki is now filming in Atlanta and is currently scheduled to stream on Disney Plus in the Spring of 2021.
