Marvel has announced that a deleted scene from Loki season 1 featuring Chris Hemsworth as Throg will be included in the physical release of the show. Throg’s cameo in the scene adds comedic relief to the otherwise serious plot of Loki season 2 and has the potential to break the tension. Having Hemsworth as Throg in season 2 would also allow him to appear alongside Tom Hiddleston and bring together two of the MCU’s biggest stars in the Disney+ series.
Chris Hemsworth’s Deleted Scene from Loki Season 1
The deleted scene, titled “Loki’s Coronation,” features Throg appearing during Loki’s timeline review by Mobius. Although Throg made a brief appearance in season 1 without any lines, this deleted scene will give him a proper appearance. The physical release of Loki season 1 is set to hit stores on September 26, right before the premiere of season 2 on October 6.
The release of this deleted scene right before season 2 suggests that Throg could potentially return in the upcoming season. Fans were excited to see Throg in season 1, only for his appearance to be short and silent. Including him in season 2 would be a way to pay off that moment for fans who may not have purchased the physical release of season 1.
Throg’s cameo in season 2 would also provide a comedic touch to the otherwise serious plot. With the TVA being reshaped by Kang the Conqueror and the introduction of a new Kang variant in season 2, the show is expected to have a tense and dramatic storyline. Throg’s presence would bring some light-heartedness and balance to the season.
Additionally, having Hemsworth cameo as Throg in season 2 allows for an exciting reunion between the two MCU actors. Hemsworth and Hiddleston’s characters, Thor and Loki, have a long history in the MCU, and fans have enjoyed their dynamic on-screen. While a meeting between the main Thor and the Loki from the series is more likely to be saved for a movie, having Hemsworth appear as Throg in season 2 is a great way to have the two actors interact on the Disney+ series.
Overall, the inclusion of the deleted scene featuring Throg in the physical release of Loki season 1 suggests that the character may make a return in season 2. Throg’s cameo in the upcoming season would provide comedic relief and allow Hemsworth and Hiddleston to share the screen once again. Fans can look forward to the physical release of Loki season 1 on September 26 and the premiere of season 2 on October 6.
