As Loki begins to start production, a new report from The Illuminerdi has reported that Marvel’s first transgendered superhero, Sera will appear. Last year, GWW first reported that Marvel was looking to cast a transgender actor for an upcoming Marvel Project. Many believed that it would be Thor: Love and Thunder; however, new reports suggest Loki.

The site has learned that Sera will be a major supporting character and could be featured in future Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
Here’s a brief description of Sera from The Illuminerdi: “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.”
No official word has been given.
Loki is set to debut on Disney+ in the Spring of 2021, with production set to kick off early this year.
Disney+’s Loki will see the return of Tom Hiddleston as Loki and will feature Sophia Di Martino (Flowers; Yesterday) in an undisclosed role. Kate Herron (Daybreak) will direct the series with Michael Waldron (Rick & Morty) writing the series.
