Loki Season 2 First Photos Reveal Surprising Marvel Easter Eggs
by Tom Hiddleston Loki officially became the first live-action Marvel Studios Disney+ show to be renewed for a second season, the announcement of which came as a post-credits scene at the end of Season 1. As did the cast with the first six episodes of the show, Season 2 is expected to include another fun Easter Egg Hunt as well as the undisclosed plot that will drive the story forward.
While some of these Easter Eggs teased future story points like Jonathan Majors’ Who Remains, others came as fun nods to other characters and stories from across the Marvel Universe. This included a look at the Thanos helicopter in episode 5 and even a link to Wanda Vision in episode 1, and season 2 will have even more opportunities thanks to everything that has been released since then.
While Marvel is doing its due diligence on Season 1’s rewards chances, Season 2 is in the early stages of preparation ahead of its undisclosed release date in the near future. And thanks to a few photos taken early on, it’s been confirmed that the upcoming half-dozen episodes will continue this Easter egg trend on more than one occasion.
Loki Season 2 Easter Eggs Confirmed
twitter user @LOVE1SNOTENOUGH shared the first set photos from Marvel Studios Season 2 Loki, which is currently filming ahead of its premiere on Disney+. These photos are from the surroundings of the Noel Theater in London, England.
A photo shows a theater with some posters outside, both for an in-universe movie called Zaniac:
Zaniac is definitely one of Marvel’s scariest characters, first introduced in Thor 319 beginning in May 1982 as an entity that possessed various hosts in order to sow terror and chaos. He was even thought to have taken over the body of Marvel’s Jack the Ripper, bringing to life the legend that has existed for two centuries in the real world.
In some iterations of the Marvel Comics universe, Zaniac becomes a fictional monster featured in slasher movies, which seems to be the same direction for the character who Loki Season 2 takes.
Outside the same theater is a poster of the film Phone Store under an advertisement for the establishment:
The Phone Ranger is an even wilder hero, dressed in a costume that literally looks like a wired phone with the number keys on his chest after discovering how to tap into countless phone lines. And while the outfit is a little ridiculous, it has saved her life on numerous occasions, and it would certainly make for a crazy movie if it ever got made.
In this same room, the posters of two films released in 1974 – Herbie rides again and Earthquake – could be spotted, indicating more time travel shenanigans will land Loki and/or related characters in the 1970s.
Who are these obscure Marvel characters?
While not all MCU Easter Eggs are tied to confirmed characters in the story or on the way, these two are fun nods to another part of Marvel history,
While it’s unclear how long these Easter eggs will be on screen, Loki Season 2 won’t shy away from bringing wild and wacky characters to the fore.
Depending on the release date, it’s even possible that this new series of episodes will touch on other iconic Marvel Studios properties, like Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Where The Fantastic Four. More of these nods will turn out like Loki Season 2 is getting closer to its promotional run, but these photos indicate that the Easter egg hunt is off to a great start.
Loki Season 2 is currently filming ahead of its debut on Disney+.
