Why Didn’t We See Mobius’ Past In MCU? Loki Director Explains


It’s easy to say that everyone has fallen in love with Mobius one way or the other after they watch Loki. Played by actor Owen Wilson, Mobius has made his way to the top of the favorite characters among the cast. But fans are curious and have a lot of questions about Mobius’ past in MCU and all his stories.

While fans were given an insight into Sylvie’s past and her childhood stories, the same agency was not provided to Mobius. The need to address his past to get to know where he came from and what his life looked like before being recruited by the Time Variance Authority looms large.

Just like Hunter B-15 discovering that she had a family when Sylvie showed her the life she had before she was recruited by the TVA, it turns out Mobius also almost had the same opportunity.

Why Did Mobius Forget Loki?

According to the show’s director Kate Herron, we were almost given a glimpse of his past and it was also included in a few “drafts of the script.” “He had spoken about [it]. I think there were a few drafts of the script where you did see a family or you did see a life, but I think we all kind of decided we don’t know what it is yet,” Herron revealed.

She also admitted that this makes his character more exciting as fans have lots of questions and theories about his past. “I think that’s exciting, right? Because it gives more road to travel with him,” she said.

Herron admitted that she thinks the way his character was portrayed as the best for now. “I think it’s more painful when he is going to be deleted, him saying, ‘What if I had a family’ Because maybe he did or maybe he didn’t, I don’t know where the writers will take his character,” the filmmaker admitted.
