SPOILERS for Loki will be found below.
After toying with viewers over the course of the first two episodes, the “Evil Loki” that’s been murdering TVA agents (a.k.a. Minutemen) across the timeline has finally been revealed. From the looks of things the villainous character appears to be Lady Loki, which may confirm a long-simmering fan theory that’s been bouncing around the internet after diligent Marvel fans learned that Sophia Di Martino had been cast in a mystery role.
Because Twitter has no chill, “Lady Loki” immediately started trending just a few hours after Loki Episode 2 premiered on Disney , which is one of the perils of releasing shows in the dead of night. But while the spoiler-averse probably won’t be thrilled to see the character’s name bouncing all over their feed, the Marvel fans that adjusted their sleep schedules accordingly are loving the Lady Loki reveal:

On Twitter, another theory is forming that Lady Loki is not actually Loki, but instead, she’s actually Enchantress, a well-known villain from the Thor comics. That theory is bolstered not just by her line about not wanting to be called Loki, but also by what appears to be an unintentional reveal in the Spanish version of the credits. Di Martino is listed as “Sylvie.” Why is that important? The full name of the Young Avengers version of Enchantress is Sylvie Lushton.
Either this is a masterfully placed red herring, or Marvel needs to tighten up their credit game.
I think that “Lady Loki” is actually Sylvie Lushton (Enchantress). I only say that cause she has blond hair, similar powers and also was asked to not be referred to as Loki which was very questionable #tome. But I could be wrong pic.twitter.com/6aw0fZW05N
