Marvel has revealed Loki will be gender fluid for their upcoming stand-alone TV series.
The superhero, who is the brother of Thor and God of Mischief in Norse mythology, is being played by Tom Hiddleston.
Despite him being killed by Thanos in Avengers: Endgame (sorry for the spoilers but, come on), this TV series on Disney+ will take place in an alternate timeline.
It's all set for its big debut tomorrow (Wednesday June 9) and Marvel has let slip a few details about Loki's character ahead of the premiere.
In a teaser video, we're shown the Time Variance Authority's file on the anti-hero, presumably because he's been arrested for meddling with the timeline with the Tesseract.
It was a 'blink and you miss it' type moment, but eagle-eyed viewers saw that Loki is classed on the document as gender-fluid.
While this might be surprising for some, this will be old news for fans of Loki.
The character takes many forms and has even been referred to by Odin (his Godly father) as 'my child who is both' genders.
In Mackenzi Lee's Loki: Where Mischief Lies, the character is also said to be gender-fluid as well as pansexual.
The announcement has taken some fans aback, however many have stepped in to explain Loki has a long history with a non-binary gender.
One person wrote on Twitter: "Before anyone starts complaining, the earliest appearance I could find of gender-fluid Loki in the comics is 2004, and even then Lady Loki apparently appeared in something in the 1940s. This isn't new, fully expected, and I'll show you the door."
Another added: "Seeing different gender presentations as different characters or personalities. It bugs me immensely when people act like Loki and Lady Loki are two different entities or characters of some kind. They're literally always Loki. Loki is always themself, herself, himself."
The teaser hints we could be seeing different versions of Loki being played across the six episodes.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige told Entertainment Weekly that the MCU is really fun to explore because the opportunities are technically endless.
"Part of the fun of the multiverse and playing with time is seeing other versions of characters, and other versions of the titular character in particular," he said.
"He's been around for thousands of years. He had all sorts of adventures. Wanting to fill in the blanks and see much more of Loki's story [was] the initial desire [for the series]."
