Loki director Kate Herron shares a behind-the-scenes picture of what Alligator actually looks like on set before it is animated by CGI.
Director Kate Herron reveals what alligator Loki looks like Loki before CGI. The latest episode of the Marvel Studios show, titled “Journey Into Mystery,” introduced a number of new variations that join the god of mischief and Sylvie. But the most interesting of them all is arguably the reptilian version of the trickster.
First debuting in the post-credits scene of Loki Episode 4, four new variants of Loki welcomed the god of mischief who found himself in the unknown void after being circumcised by Ravonna Renslayer at the TVA. With danger looming because the Alioth was whirling around, Classic Loki, brilliantly played by Richard E. Grant, let the disoriented Loki stand up and seek protection. He was joined by Kid Loki, Boastful Loki and Alligator Loki. The Asgardian Princes continued to spend time with and learn about the new team, including their respective Nexus events.

While the God Mischief has long been a fan favorite character in the MCU. Loki, introducing several new variants of the same character, meant a number of new versions that the public could invest in. In her latest Twitter post, director Kate Herron shares what alligator Loki looks like on set, and it’s drastically different from what it looks like on screen. Take a look at the picture below:
Alligator Loki is arguably one of the most bizarre creatures in the MCU, and that says something when you consider the many new creatures to the franchise over the past few years. The Guardians of the Galaxy have Rocket Raccoon and Groot (of different ages) while Captain Marvel has Goose who is a Flerken. However, this Loki variant is far too strange for even the Asgardian Prince, who grew up in Asgard near Frigga and was able to transform into different beings, to be still fascinated by it. While the reptile had no lines, it communicated by making sounds that the other variants apparently understood. In this way, it is also revealed that it has deviated from its predestined fate by eating the wrong neighbor’s cat.
That being said, it’s still worth noting that alligator Loki might not ultimately be a Loki. Agent Mobius M. Mobius, who has been with the TVA for a long time and has handled different versions of the character, said he couldn’t remember a reptilian variant. Given that it doesn’t speak, it’s hard to judge whether or not it fits as a Loki variant. At the end of Loki Episode 5, it stayed with Kid Loki while Classic Loki helped the Asgardian prince and Sylvie tackle the Alioth. Given that, it’s safe to say that alligator Loki might very well reappear if he could dispel those doubts.

A casual film buff with constant curiosity, Ana rekindled her love of writing a few years ago and married her to all of pop culture. The result is a passionate young author who was able to wander (and of course write) for several hours a day over films and series. She has a soft spot for the Lion King, old songs and home design; is currently obsessed with old sitcoms (The Golden Girls!); and doesn’t dare to watch horror films, even though she’s (ironically) dying to see one. Even though she got to the party a little late and was a true Force non-believer, she now finds the Star Wars franchise pretty intriguing (fun fact: it was some crazy Jar Jar Binks / Sith theory that attracted her).
