“Assembled: The Making of Loki” Trailer Reveals Infinity Stones Subplot That Almost Was

Yesterday we published our interview with Loki makeup department head Douglas Noe where we learned just how the creative team pulled off Marvel Studios’ latest Disney+’s series Today, Marvel has released the first trailer for Marvel Studios’ Assembled: The Making of Loki which reveals more about the making of the series, and, some potential subplots that didn’t end up getting explored.

We know one thing Loki definitely did reveal—that its titular god of mischief (played, of course, by Tom Hiddleston) is both gender fluid and bisexual. In the trailer for the upcoming doc, however, we learn that one of the avenues the writers were exploring was one in which Loki finally gets every single thing he’s ever wanted. That includes getting hold of all the Infinity Stones and becoming King of Asgard.

This insight is brought to you by /Filmwhich noticed that a whiteboard featured in the trailer behind head writer Michael Waldron includes a description of a montage that includes “Collecting the Infinity Stones” and, wait for it, “Doing crazy mischief, aka sex.” Considering the final version of Loki that we all saw, what with multiple timelines, multiple Lokis (including, spoiler alert—an alligator Loki!), and the assorted shenanigans that were included, it’s actually kind of amazing that the Infinity Stone haul and the rest didn’t make it.

Check out the trailer for Marvel Studios’ Assembled: The Making of Loki below. The doc is streaming now on Disney+.
