We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Kate Herron Quotes. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
My dad, bless him, he was never into Marvel before, but now he’s obsessed with it. When I got the job, he started watching his way through the films, and he’s got all these different YouTubers that he now watches for theories, and he tries to get spoilers out of me.
It’s a lot for one director to do six hours, particularly in the Marvel way.
For me, it was really exciting because I think Loki has had one of the best arcs over the last 10 years of the MCU.
I say ‘sorry’ all the time. I just throw it into sentences.
Generally, Marvel manages everything internally and keeps us all in check.
Well, there’s that beautiful quote about Loki from the comics, which is that he’s the god of outcasts, and I think he said ‘They see themselves in me, and I in them.’ I think that’s a big part of why I love Loki, but also, you know, he is isolated.
Directing all six episodes was a really unique experience, right? Because normally TV is run through the showrunner system, and Marvel didn’t do that on ‘Loki.’
I always thought of episode 1 as the prologue and episode 2 as our chapter 1 for ‘Loki.’
The main thing I would say is: Lady Loki in the comics is a very different character to our character, obviously.
I think the thing that always blows my mind is that Loki hasn’t had much screen time, really, in the grander scheme of things. I think it’s roughly 79 minutes and I think that’s so incredible that he’s this really beloved character.
Loki has been written as bi, he’s also been written as pan, and it just felt like this is a show about his identity, so let’s acknowledge it and make it canon.
An Alligator Loki is something that we all found hysterically funny.
I love stories about self-love and finding your identity and your people.
When I worked in an office, I was definitely using a computer that should’ve been long gone over a decade ago but wasn’t because it wasn’t broken so they weren’t going to fix it.
Alligator Loki, who knows what the alligator’s story could be? That was always fun – the debate about whether it’s a Loki, or if it’s just an alligator with horns on its head. I think he is a Loki.
I love Loki. I love so many of the comic runs with his character as well.
I think that if a villain’s done right, you don’t necessarily have to like their actions, but you have to understand them.
I love Marvel, and I was just so excited to have a chance to direct for them.
I’m so bad at getting up in the morning.
Oh, Amy Poehler. I just love her. I think she’s like a dream woman.
He Who Remains is in the comics, but the version in our show was very different.
Basically, Marvel always have an executive on every film. So we had Kevin Wright. And there’s kind of a Kevin Wright on every production that is essentially your producer, but they’re also the Marvel gatekeeper, I guess, or the overseer.
Is anyone truly good or truly bad?
The multiverse being released, we always knew that is where ‘Loki’s story was going to end.
I always wanted to direct stories that are big scale and fantastical worlds.
I grew up in southeast London and there’s a lot of brutalist architecture.
Basically, I love Loki, and I found out they were making a show about him.
I play a lot of board games, so you need to be quite good at strategy and poker faces so people can’t always read your hand.
The jobs I’ve gotten are usually the ones where I go in cold or blind in terms of what they’re after and I pitch my take on it.
I remember my heart was beating very fast when I had to call him because he’s like one of my heroes. But he’s Owen Wilson. He’s lovely and very charming and it was just really fun talking to him.
I love villains.
I think Marvel is really good at managing, and the thing I love about working with them is that you never feel hindered.
I was really inspired by the film Minority Report when he sees the projection of his wife because she’s no longer there, but she’s life-size and in the room with him, and that’s very painful.
I just didn’t know that you could have a voice and an authorship over a film, which probably sounds a bit silly. But I just hadn’t really thought about films in that way.
It was so exciting to me watching him go from villain to antihero over the last 10 years. So when I found out they were making a show about ‘Loki,’ I was very determined to get in the room for it, and they luckily met me and here I am. I would say I chased heavily after it as a ‘Loki’ fan.
When I started the show, that was always in the DNA of it – that Loki was going to meet a version of himself and they were going to fall in love.
My background’s in comedy.
In terms of the themes, I love gray areas. The show is really about what makes someone truly good or what makes someone truly bad, and are we either of those things? ‘Loki’ is in that gray area.
‘Delicate.’ I say it all the time when I eat food; when I’m trying to sound smart. I’m like: ‘Oh, it’s really delicate.’ And my friends – they’ve caught on. They know what I’m doing. Like, ‘why do you keep saying it’s delicate?’ I’m just trying to sound like a food critic.
Mobius is like a detective in the way that he works with Loki.
