Sylvie’s Early Concept Art Reveals a Totally Different Look


As only an Asgardian trickster could, Loki’s first season introduced fans to many different versions of the Norse god. This included a female version played by Sophia Di Martino, who ended up being more of a mix between the traditional Loki and the Asgardian Enchantress. While Di Martino and Tom Hiddleston share few similarities, the original concept art behind the former’s “Sylvie” initially depicted her much more similar to her Earth-616 counterpart.

revealed in Marvel’s Loki: The Art of the Series, the character’s concept art shares her with flowing black hair, complete with Loki’s signature golden crown. “When I first started working on concepts for Sylvie, I knew very little about it,” Marvel visual development artist Wesley Burt explains in the book. “Before I could read the script, I knew she was going to be a variant of Loki, that she was going to be inspired by both Lady Loki and Enchantress Sylvie Lushton from the comics.”

As seen in the art, Burt’s original pieces bear little to no resemblance to Di Martino. “The first pass of stuff I did was really focused on just seeing what I could pull from the comic book references and build from there,” Burt adds. “Then I was able to read the whole story to get an idea of ​​who she is, what she’s looking for, and her personality. Even though she’s a variant of Loki, she’s a different person in some ways. .”

Will Sylvie be in season 2 of Loki?

Principal photography for Loki’s second season has wrapped, and Di Martino has been spotted in set photos, confirming his role in the next batch of episodes. In an interview last year with Variety, the actor revealed that she hoped to explore the regret Sylvie would have after killing Jonathan Majors’ He Who Remains.

“She did it and she’s kind of waiting for the relief and the release and for something to happen to make her feel a little bit better,” di Martino said. “And it just doesn’t come, and she questions everything. I think [regret] definitely comes at some point. I’m sure, because the whole conversation that just happened with Loki almost feels like a misunderstanding. It’s just miscommunication in a way, and then she’s left with the reality of what she’s done. There are great feelings.”

When does Loki season 2 air?

Season 2 of Loki will premiere on Disney+ in the summer of 2023. If you haven’t checked out Disney+ yet and want to give it a try, you can do so here.
