The children’s show Teletubbies inspired Loki, too — but fans will have to wait and see how. “It's a stylistic [reference] that comes a bit later in the show,” Herron tells Bustle. “I do think when people see, if they're a follower of the Teletubbies, they'll know when they see it.”
The “brutalist architecture” of A Clockwork Orange also informed Herron’s approach to the world of Loki. The filmmaker actually grew up near Thamesmead in Southeast London, where Stanley Kubrick’s famous work was filmed.
A Minority Report scene in which Tom Cruise’s character sees a projection of his wife inspired the shots of Loki seeing his family on screen. “If that person isn't in your life anymore and you stumble on a photograph, there's something very immediately emotional about that,” Herron says.
