The topic “Is Miss Minutes a Villain? Loki Producer Reveals the Truth” has two versions, a written version, and a video version below the written version.
In a recent update, a Loki producer has shed some light on whether Miss Minutes is a villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the first season of Loki, Miss Minutes, voiced by Tara Strong, served as an educator, providing insights into the TVA, Time-Keepers, and the Sacred Timeline.
However, by the finale, it was revealed that she was one of a few TVA agents who possessed knowledge about the organization. The latest episode of Loki Season 2 has unveiled more about her past, objectives, and true intentions.
Is Miss Minutes a Villain?
In the third episode of Loki Season 2, which is called “1893,” Miss Minutes teams up with Ravonna Renslayer to find He Who Remains. However, this mysterious mascot has her own agenda.
When speaking with Marvel about Miss Minutes, Loki producer Kevin Wright claimed that while she is not entirely “bad,” she does operate “in the grey area.”
During the episode, Miss Minutes betrays Renslayer and confronts Victor Timely, who is a Variant of He Who Remains, about “the past that they had.” This reveals that the AI has “consciousness” and “longs for this connection again.”
“At the end of Season 1, we know she’s kind of duplicitous and she’s got a bigger plan going on. But I think it was intriguing to play with, what is that plan? Why is she doing it? In Episode 3, when she speaks to Victor Timely about the past that they had, I think it’s really kind of moving. It’s weird, you get she’s an artificial intelligence, but there is some kind of maybe consciousness there that she’s had these experiences, and she kind of longs for this connection again.”
Wright raised questions about Miss Minutes’ loyalty and ambitions for a human body, questioning whether they were a result of her programming or a natural growing emotion:
“Is her programming [written] to make that loyalty for him? Or, as she says, she was given the free will to write her own programming? Is this a naturally growing kind of emotion that she’s having? I just think that’s a cool space creatively to sit in.”
Regarding the question of whether the orange AI timepiece is villainous, the Loki producer returned to her previous statement, stating that “when she is rejected, she will go off the rails” and describing her as “vindictive:”
“And of course, when she’s rejected, she’ll go off the rails. That’s fun, too, because she’s vindictive.”
