Loki Producer Says Frog Thor Scene Got Cut From Episode 1
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is becoming more beastly these days. Not only did fans get a chance to see Alligator Loki, but the latest episode of the series also featured an easter egg of Frog Thor. Yes, some eagle-eyed fans spotted Throg in a jar, on the way to the Loki Palace. (UPDATE: voiced by Chris Hemsworth, it turns out.) After the episode aired, Loki writer and producer Eric Martin took to his socials to confirm that it was indeed a hint at the Thor-like hero, adding that it should have a much more profound impact on the story than that.
Comic fans will notice the Frog of Thunder in that jar. We actually shot a scene for the Time Theater in Ep 1 of Loki getting pummeled by Frog Thor, but had to cut it to keep things moving. It’s too bad, because Tom was funny as hell. #LokiMidnightTheater

In the comics, Throg’s real name is Simon Walterson. Simon is a former college football star who has been cursed into a frog. However, he proves worthy of lifting Mjolnir and wielding the power of the god of thunder, becoming the Thunder Frog. That need not necessarily be the same in the MCU, but fans will have to wait and see if the amphibian ever returns.
The first five episodes of Loki are streaming on Disney+. Episode 6 will premiere on Wednesday, July 14.
