Game of Thrones’ DeObia Oparei cameoed in Loki as the only Loki Variant Worthy of Lifting Thor’s Hammer Mjolnir



Marvel’s latest television venture ‘Loki‘ has been under the watchful eyes of the audience for quite some time now. The new series got the viewers to the edge of their seats, when the mid-season credits rolled, and it was revealed the God of mischief is still alive. And it didn’t end there, the TV show introduced various versions of Loki, that were never-before-seen in live-action. One of the most mysterious characters of them, the Boastful Loki, is played by Game of Thrones alum DeObia Oparei (Areo Hotah, captain of Prince Doran Martell’s guards). What’s even more surprising is the fact, unlike all the versions of Loki we have seen so far, this one looks the strongest and possesses his own Mjolnir. Yes, you heard it right! Thor’s fabled enchanted hammer Mjolnir!

After recovering from his latest death fake-out at the end of Loki episode 4, “The Nexus Event,” Loki Variant L1130 finds himself face-to-face with four new Loki variants. They include Old Loki (far right), in the middle is Kid Loki, on the left is Boastful Loki played by Oparei, and finally there’s little Crocodile Loki held by Kid Loki in the centre.

There’s not much known about Boastful Loki as of yet, except that he wields his own version of Mjolnir. Oparei is really excited to be a part of the show, as evident from his recent post on Twitter.

Thrilled to be a part of the MCU & excited to have been intro’d in Ep 4 of #LokiWednesdays

There are many theories as to who boastful Loki is. Some say he’s from a timeline where Thor died and he stood up to take his mantle. Other’s say he’s from a time branch where he’s born as an Asgardian. We don’t know yet. All we can do is wait for Loki episode 5 that is scheduled to stream on Disney+ on Wednesday, July 7, 2021.

It is a well-known fact that most of the shooting for Game of Thrones took place in Northern Ireland. Before the pandemic, Northern Ireland was a thriving sanctuary for Game of Thrones lovers. HBO’s fantasy epic is a big part of the country’s tourism industry. Tourism Ireland has been putting in more efforts to boost this sector, by establishing itself as a premier tourist spot specifically devoted to the show. Tourism Ireland’s ‘Glass of Thrones‘ stained glass windows, which were created as part of Tourism Ireland Game of Thrones campaign to showcase and celebrate Northern Ireland as “Game of Thrones territory” during the airing of the final season of the popular fantasy television show in 2019, have gone on permanent display in Belfast.

Tourism Ireland stated on its website, “Tourism Ireland has gifted its six ‘Glass of Thrones’ stained-glass windows to Maritime Belfast Trust (formerly Titanic Foundation Limited). The windows are now on permanent display in the Titanic Quarter and are part of Belfast’s Maritime Mile.”

“The beautifully crafted windows were installed around Belfast back in 2019 – to showcase and celebrate Northern Ireland as ‘Game of Thrones territory’ to millions of fans of the TV series around the world. The windows – which each depicted a key House from the show – marked a decade of filming and production in Northern Ireland and the installation was timed to coincide with the broadcast of the final season. The campaign – called ‘Glass of Thrones’ – was created by Tourism Ireland and Tourism NI, in partnership with HBO.”

“As travel from overseas to Northern Ireland begins to restart, the ‘Glass of Thrones’ installation will be an important new attraction for fans of the hit TV series visiting Belfast and Northern Ireland. Tourism Ireland will take every opportunity to promote the ‘Glass of Thrones’ in Belfast’s Maritime Mile, as well as our Game of Thrones filming locations, in its promotions around the world.”

Ever since its confirmation last year, House of The Dragon has caused quite a buzz. Fans all over the world are expecting more news about Game of Thrones spinoffs. So far the big brains at HBO have kept it shut tight, and all we have are rumours from all over the internet. HBO chief Casey Bloys was once again prodded about the possible Game of Thrones spinoff shows currently under works. He has kept mum once again, confirming House of The Dragon is the only prequel to have received the green light.

“The good news is that everything you do [connected with GoT] becomes news. Any script that is in development or script that is pitched becomes news and it inevitably gets reported and people assume they are in production. Only House of The Dragon is in production, the rest is in development, and we will make a decision,” he said during a press event at WarnerMedia headquarters in New York City.

“Nothing else is greenlit but a lot of interesting [projects in] development,” he reiterated.

We know that other than House of The Dragon, there are five Game of Thrones-related projects at work. They include 9 Voyages aka Sea Snake, Flea Bottom, 10,000 Ships and an adaptation of Martin’s Tales of Dunk & Egg novellas at HBO, as well as an animated series at HBO Max.
