Twitter account @ForAllNerds (Going through @ ViewsDe616) posted an interview with Herron where she revealed the thrilling cameo. They talked about some of the Easter eggs that she was thrilled to be a part of in the episode. She noted that it was a team effort to include them all, like the Thanos Copter and the Throg. She then revealed that Hemsworth himself recorded new audio for a brief moment. See below for Herron’s statement:
“Throg, obviously, to get him in. We recorded Chris Hemsworth for that, by the way. We recorded him for that. His voice was like ‘Ahhh!’ It’s a brand new recording. Not recycled. He recorded it. “
In the comics, Throg is actually Simon Walterson, who turns into a frog because of a curse. He gets the name “Puddlegulp” from other frogs, one of which is particularly powerful and helps defeat the rats that attack them. He had no idea that this mighty frog was Thor himself after he was transformed into a frog. When he leaves to return to Asgard, Puddlegulp manages to defend himself with a small shard from Thor’s hammer. After receiving the powers of the God of Thunder, he took the name Throg.
The cameo is small and quick, although it’s hard to miss and it’s a silly but fun variation to include. After seeing so many variants of Loki, it’s a nice surprise to see one of the variants of Thor have a moment on screen. While this moment doesn’t have any weight on the series’ narrative, it potentially hints at some fun directions the MCU can take from here. Loki Really lays the foundation for the multiverse, and the finale is sure to impact the rest of Phase 4.
