Frog Thor, also known as Throg, made a cameo appearance in episode five of Loki and writer and producer Eric Martin took to Twitter to describe the full scene that was cut from the series.
It was reported that while the Loki series was in production, the crew shot Throg for the Time Theater sequence in episode one. In the scene, it was revealed that Loki was getting beat up by the Frog of Thunder. Martin also mentioned that Tom Hiddleston was really funny while shooting and the scene was deleted because Martin wanted to move things forward with the first episode.
Based on the Twitter post, Martin explained that the alligator version of Loki was the first element of the show and credited Michael Waldron for pitching the idea. He also gave fans details about Throg along with the hashtag #LokiMidnightTheater and #AlligatorLoki.
Since Throg was not featured in the Loki series, it’s cool to imagine how the scene would have played out. On the bright side, we have alligator Loki which is also a scaly and feisty variant. The alligator version of Loki was created using special effects with a plush stand-in on set for the actors, while the exterior scenes of Void were shot on a soundstage.
While fans would certainly like to see more of Throg, it seems that most are still enjoying every single episode. For Martin he is impressed with Tom Hiddleston’s work, most notably with his performance in the fifth episode where emotions ran high when Hiddleston’s character hugged Owen Wilson’s character. He said, “We were all sequestered to avoid COVID,” “so I think they just enjoyed human contact.” In other words, it also makes the scene more touching as the two friends say their good-byes.
Loki is available on Disney + and episode six will be streaming on July 14. Follow The Illuminerdi’s social media’s page for more upcoming content and pop culture news.
