Kasra Farahani noted that the Void is “a dumping ground of aberrant realities” and approached it as such: “The idea behind that and the Void generally is that it’s this hyper desolate place where you’ve been deleted from time, and you get to the TVA, and then you’ve been pruned even from the TVA that’s sort of deleted twice, this is where you end up.”
From there, we got into specifics. Discussing the physical construction of the set, Farahani revealed to us that “The Void was an entire stage build, and so that was a massive interior terrain that we built that had seven different iterations. We would bring in different elements to make it feel different, sometimes overnight. So for example, the giant heads were one iteration of it. The drive-in movie theater was a different iteration of it, where Sylvie wakes up. There was a version of it with the engine of the spacecraft that they walk past. There was a version of it where Loki first wakes up with the bus shelter and all that.”
When asked if there were any Easter eggs he wanted to highlight, “the entire Episode 5 is like an Easter egg, because of what I’ve said, it’s aberrations from time, so they’re deleted. Some of that originates from the script, some of it, the various collaborators propose, some of it is born in the art department.” He noted that the “Thanos-copter is super fun,” and he also liked the Polybius machine in the Loki Lair.
