Besides WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Disney+ is also expecting another Marvel series in the form of Loki. While the main plot for the series is being kept under wraps, word is going out that Loki will actually have a romantic interest this time—in fact, make it two romantic interests.
According to insider Daniel Richtman (via @cosmic_marvel), the Loki series will have Thor’s estranged brother have both a male and female love interest.
🚨 RUMOR: Loki will reportedly have 2 love interests in the MCU, one is a male and the other will be a female.

So far, Loki has mostly been asexual for his entire appearance in the MCU, but if Marvel is going to delve into his more romantic relationships, I guess the series is the perfect place to do it. This news of a male love interest actually lines up with the rumor that we are going to get Lady Loki in the show. My guess is that Loki will find himself stuck as a woman for some part of the series, and some guy is going to be find himself smitten with him/her.
Based on what we’ve gathered from the internet, the show looks to deal with time travel and this version of Loki will have a run-in with Marvel’s Time Variance Authority. We don’t know exactly what he does, but it’s speculated that he will be jumping around the timeline, influencing events as is expected of the God of Mischief. Hopefully there are some other things that fans have yet to figure out.
In the meantime, Disney+ is set to premiere WandaVision later this December. Loki is expected to debut on the platform in the spring of 2021.
