Thor: Love and Thunder left us with plenty to discuss, but now we’re taking a closer look at the blockbuster’s best Easter eggs, references, and cameos. Something tells us you missed a few!

Thor: Love and Thunder may not have been the critical darling Thor: Ragnarok was back in 2017, but we always knew the film would struggle to live up to its predecessor.

While the response to this sequel was a bit mixed, it was also a box office success and left even the most disappointed fans with something to love. The film is very fast-paced and rarely gives us or its characters time to breathe. with that in mind, we bet you missed quite a few of these Easter Eggs!

From fun cameos to obscure comic book references and even teases about the MCU’s exciting future, we’ve got plenty to dig into here. Director Taika Waititi has crammed in a lot of Easter eggs, but these are our favorites.

10. Jane Foster and the cliché

When Thor and Jane Foster are reunited, they both have very different views on how long they haven’t been together. While The Mighty Thor risks a guess at three or four years, the God of Thunder counters that with a much more accurate tally of over eight years and seven months.

So what’s going on?

Well, common sense says the five-year difference is a result of Jane Foster being among those wiped out by Thanos. This would explain why the hero never found her following the events of Avengers: Infinity War and confirm that The Cosmic Quest Volume II: Aftermath the book is not canon (as it suggested that Jane survived The Blip).

9. Cast children


We’ve heard a lot about the children of Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Taika Waititi. Thor: Love and Thunderbut where exactly do they appear?

Portman’s children Aleph and Amala Millepied, Bale’s children Emmeline and Joseph, and Waititi’s daughters Te Kainga O’Te Hinekahu and Matewa Kiritapu are all among those kidnapped by Gorr the Butcher God ( another fun easter egg occurs when Thor grants them all a share of his powers and he spreads through them in the form of Yggdrasil).

Joining them is Hemsworth’s daughter Sasha, while her twin brother Tristan plays young Thor. The most important role, however, goes to India Rose. She plays Gorr’s daughter and eventually joins the God of Thunder as a super-powered love interest.

8. Infinity Conez


Thor: Love and Thunder is a movie with a lot of jokes (like, a plot), but is this one going a bit too far?

When King Valkyrie fulfills her duties as the leader of New Asgard, we see her opening a new ice cream parlor which is called “Infinity Conez”. As someone recently pointed out on Twitter, isn’t that the equivalent of opening a Holocaust-themed store? After all, The Blip wiped out half of all life on Earth and traumatized countless millions (if not billions).

It might be a clever pun, but it feels like Marvel Studios has to decide how seriously they want to treat Thanos’ attack on Earth, especially when it’s been completely ignored in some recent projects. .

7. “Nick Furry”


During this fun sequence exploring how and why Thor’s relationship with Jane Foster ended, we see the God of Thunder take a call from former SHIELD Director Nick Fury.

As Thor and Jane reunited in 2013 Thor: The Dark Worldwe have to believe this took place sometime before the fall of SHIELD in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. What Fury would call the God of Thunder is undeniably intriguing, and there are clearly plenty of missions Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have taken on together that we haven’t gotten to see.

However, the funniest part of it all is that Thor somehow came to the conclusion that Fury’s name is “Nick Furry”.

6. The Necrosword


In the comics, the Necrosword was created by Knull, the god of Symbiotes. He imagined it to kill the Celestials after the Big Bang because they brought life and light to a universe that was previously bathed in darkness.

En route to Thor: Love and Thunderwe speculated that a retcon might be planned to have Gorr retrieve Hela’s similar weapons from Thor: Ragnarok (after his death fighting Surtur). Instead, Marvel Studios stuck to the source material, a surprise considering the Symbiotes and Venom aren’t part of the MCU.

Again, Eddie Brock left a piece of his alien costume in Spider-Man: No Coming Homeso there is every chance that everything will start to come together over the next few years.

5. Asgardian Actors


There are plenty of fun cameos to discuss in this movie, but among the most enjoyable are the ones we see during another Asgardian performance. Summarizing the events of Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity WarSam Neill, Matt Damon, and Luke Hemsworth reprise their respective roles as actors playing Odin, Loki, and Thor.

Joining them is Melissa McCarthy this time as Hela, while her real-life husband has fun as part of the set.

After New Asgard is attacked by Gorr, we actually see Damon and Hemsworth’s Asgardians pestering the Valkyrie King for the opportunity to start writing a new play about what happened that day!

4. The MCU’s First Werewolf


It may have felt like a disposable moment, but as Marvel Studios continues to embrace the supernatural, it might be more important than you think.

Although not significantly discussed here, New Asgard seems to have picked up a lot of pests across the cosmos. Among them is a kid who identifies himself as a “Lycan,” and we’re sure you’ll know that’s another word for werewolf.

Vampires already exist in the MCU and, after this Halloween night werewolf Special, we will also learn more about lycanthropes. However, Jack Russell is clearly not the first to succumb to this curse based on this moment of flight!

3. Thor’s Tattoos


When Thor is unceremoniously stripped of his birthday suit by Zeus, we see the God of Thunder has a huge tattoo on his back paying homage to Loki. It might sound funny, but it’s a touching tribute to his dead brother (remember, he has no idea there’s a variant of Loki – well, two of them – alive and well somewhere after Avengers: Infinity War).

He’s not the only fallen comrade that Thor also honors.

Look closely and you will also see the names of Odin, Frigga, and Heimdall. Outside of Asgard, Thor even commemorated his fellow Avengers, Iron Man and Black Widow after their respective deaths. Unfortunately, your guess is as good as ours regarding the meaning of the flower, although we’re guessing the broken heart is for Jane.

2. Familiar faces from the Thor franchise


A few characters that didn’t arrive on Thor’s back are The Warriors Three. Fans weren’t happy to see how quickly they were killed in Thor: Ragnarokbut we’re starting to think Waititi isn’t a lover of the trio due to the way he uses flashbacks to poke fun at their respective disappearances (Korg doesn’t even remember their names).

On the plus side, the wider Thor franchise is getting some respect with cameos from Erik Selvig and Darcy Lewis.

The latter offers support to Jane during a session of chemotherapy, while Erik leaves a message for his old friend to tell him that he has found no cure for his cancer.

1. Some fun movie references


As we have established, Thor: Love and Thunder has its fair share of references to the larger MCU, but what about the other movies?

There are two standout examples we picked out, including Korg’s conceit of telling Thor’s story to a cave full of children instantly bringing back memories of Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Even more obscure is the “Cocktails and Dreams” neon sign on the barge our heroes are heading out into the cosmos on.

This is the bar chain that Tom Cruise’s character worked for in 1988 Cocktailso we can only assume that someone involved in this sequel was a huge fan of this film.
