Honestly Loki is basically the only morally complex character marvel has tried to write and he's been through like seven different directors' intentions and rewrites and the most fucking inconsistent characterization fiction has ever seen so kudos to Tom Hiddleston for actually pulling a semi-compelling character out of that mess but also for not going fucking feral on every new director who, thinking theyre god's gift to marvel and cinema, has turned to him and said "I think we're gonna do something a little different with Loki this time"
I remember sitting down with Kevin Wright, the producer, and some of the writers, and they were telling me the story of the show. And they were like, “So, there’s this really interesting character called Mobius and, um, he’s kind of like an analyst in the TVA. And he’s a great intellect, and he’s a scholar. And he kind of understands Loki. And he’s able to show him parts of himself he’s never understood before.” And I always thought, “God, I wonder who’s gonna play that part?” And here he is.
