Tom Hiddleston Declares Alligator Loki as the Superior Loki

There is little doubt that people were thrilled to meet the several different versions of the God of Mischief in Loki. But which one is the best Variant? Tom Hiddleston has just declared that Alligator Loki is the Superior Loki.

Alligator Loki aka Croki was introduced along with Classic Loki, Kid Loki, and Boastful Loki in the post-credits scene in Episode 4. Since then, fans couldn't stop talking about the Asgardian reptile and have even gone as far as claiming that the Variant is the best one in the bunch.

But does Hiddleston agree? The Avengers: Endgame star recently took part in a Tumblr Q&A session where a fan asked if he thinks Alligator Loki is better than him. Hiddleston was quick to point out that he originated the role but concedes that he has been defeated by a crocodilian.

“I’ve been toiling away at this character going on for 11 years. And I have given everything I can only to be upstaged, perhaps inevitably, by the one true Loki, the superior Loki, which is Alligator Loki,” Hiddleston said.

“You know I sort of knew it was coming. I felt I was going to be substituted at some point. And I’m glad it’s finally happened. Alligator Loki has arrived. And, yeah, thrown his hat down. And the rest of us simply have to get out of the way at this point,” he concluded.

It's good to know that Hiddleston respects the power that Alligator Loki holds. Although it's unclear if we'll see more of the reptilian, fans believe we'll eventually get to learn Croki's backstory.

All episodes of Loki are now streaming on Disney+.

How Ant-Man 3's Kang Variant Will Be Different From Loki's He Who Remains

Screen Rant 16 July, 2021 - 01:32pm

With Loki being a time travel series and the 31st century Avengers villain being a top candidate for the MCU’s next big bad, it was suspected even before the casting of Jonathan Majors in Ant-Man 3 that Marvel might use the show to set the stage for the character’s introduction. Not only did it do that, but it also put him at the center of what was really going on with the Time Variance Authority. In the Loki season finale, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophie Di Martino) learned that Majors’ He Who Remains is the man behind the curtain who’s been pulling the strings of the TVA all this time. Apparently, he discovered alternate timelines, caused (and then prevented) a multiversal war waged by his variants. Though his name was never mentioned, in the context of the comics it’s clear that He Who Remains is a version of Kang the Conqueror.

He Who Remains died at the hands of Sylvie at the end of the episode, thus kicking off on a brand-new arc for the MCU revolving around various versions of Kang vying for supremacy. Numerous incarnations of the character (including ones not played by Majors) can now join the MCU at any time over the next few years, including in Loki season 2, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Ant-Man 3. The latter of the three will shine the spotlight on a proper version of Kang the Conqueror, whose arrival in the MCU was just made possible.

Similar to the backstory laid out by He Who Remains in Loki, Kang the Conqueror aka Nathaniel Richards hails from the 31st century. At some point in his past, Richards (who is supposedly a descendant of Mr. Fantastic or Doctor Doom) got his hands on some highly advanced weaponry and tech, which he was able to use to travel to different time periods. Armed with his genius intellect and technology, Richards set out to conquer other civilizations and found some degree of success in his efforts. Over the years, Kang came to believe that he was unbeatable, but realized that wasn’t true when he met the Avengers, who repeatedly foiled his attempts to take over modern-day Earth. Kang’s frustration over being beaten by people who he perceived as simpletons resulted in the character developing a long-held vendetta against the team.

Another reason he’s one of their greatest enemies is related to the fact that he targets them specifically. The two emotions that drive Kang the most are ambition and hate. Due to his numerous losses, Kang longs to get his revenge and kill the Avengers for the troubles they’ve caused him. The very depth of his hate was revealed in a 1960s comic when he gave up a chance to resurrect the woman he loved (Ravonna) in favor of killing the Avengers. For Kang, pursuing his vendetta was his top priority over everything else, even the person he cared about most. If Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania brings these qualities to the MCU interpretation of Kang the Conqueror, he stands a chance at being one of the MCU’s most sinister villains ever. All things considered, any hero who earns Kang’s enmity in the MCU will have a tough road to survival.
