‘Loki’ Director Confirms Chris Hemsworth Voice Cameo As Frog Thor Variant

In an Easter Egg-filled penultimate Loki episode last week (I mean, the Thor Copter showed up!!) there was one moment that had me falling out of my chair with laughter. Pay attention and you’ll notice Throg, or better put the frog version of Thor, stuck in a jar yelping weakly while trying to reach for Mjolnir. It’s a great moment, and now director Kate Herron has revealed it was Chris Hemsworth himself who offered that pathetic ribbit.

“Throg, obviously, getting him in [was great]. And we recorded Chris Hemsworth for that, by the way,” Herron confirmed. “We recorded him for that, that’s new recording. That’s a whole new recording, not recycled, he recorded that!”

Very cool. Makes me wonder if he came all the way into the studio just for that, or if they just did it over the phone or something. Either way, the attention to even that small amount of detail is one of the reasons we love Marvel so much, right?

Loki has its final episode this coming Wednesday. Will Throg perhaps make another appearance? Probably not, but with all the weird shit that has already happened who can really say?
