The Marvel Cinematic Universe appears to be moving in the direction of more and more animal superheroes: not just reptiles, but also amphibians. While we wait for the inevitable Alligator Loki spin-off (that’s not seriously a thing … yet), fans will have to content themselves with the hatching of Easter eggs. But one such Easter egg almost had a bigger debut in Loki.

Frog Thor, AKA Throg, is a fan favorite in Marvel Comics, but on the Disney+series Loki, he’s only a tadpole of an idea right now. However, writer and producer Eric Martin recently revealed that we could have seen the amphibian God of Thunder lay a smackdown on Loki back in the first episode of the Marvel Studios series.

Martin recently took to Twitter to deliver a #LokiMidnightTheater thread, where he revealed some interesting behind-the-scenes tidbits about Loki‘s production of the fifth episode of the series. Here’s one of the most interesting tidbits:

According to Martin, Farahani “literally bought a bowling alley in Omaha and had it shipped out to Atlanta to be turned into The Loki Palace.” Between takes, Martin said that star Tom Hiddleston “is always moving. He’ll run in place, do squats, whatever.” If you’re late to Loki and just now binging the first five (of six) episodes, you may want to consider doing some squats yourself to keep the blood stirring in your legs.

There was some real emotion behind Hiddleston’s goodbye hug with Owen Wilson. “We were all sequestered to avoid COVID,” Martin said, “so I think they just enjoyed human contact.”

Loki is available to stream now on Disney+.
