Just about every named MCU character is an adaptation of someone or something from the Marvel comics. Even the most minor characters are likely to have had a story arc in the ’80s that someone at Marvel Studios dug out of a crate and used as inspiration when creating a show or movie. But not Hunter B-15 — she has no precedent. She’s never had a story arc, and she’s not based on or even inspired by any particular character. As such, Looper had to ask Wunmi Mosaku, what’s it like playing a rare original character?
“It’s fun,” she told us with a smile. “You don’t feel this pressure of ‘I hope the fans like it and agree’ and whatever. You get the freedom to just make it come to life how you feel is best. You’ve got the script, obviously, as your outline and then you do the rest. Yeah. It was really fun.”
The first episode of “Loki” is now streaming on Disney+. Stay tuned to Looper for more exclusive coverage.
