A new piece of Loki fan art created by Megan Levens reimagines Thor: Ragnarok’s “get help” scene with Alligator Loki and Frog Thor.
Warning: SPOILERS for Loki episode 5, “Journey Into Mystery.”
A new piece of Loki fan art reimagines Thor: Ragnarok’s “get help” scene with Alligator Loki and Frog Thor. The fifth episode of Marvel’s latest Disney+ series sees Tom Hiddleston’s titular trickster stranded in a void at the end of time, where the Time Variance Authority (TVA) sends the branch realities and variants they prune. As the TVA’s dumping ground, “The Void” is full of Marvel Easter eggs and other variants including (but not limited to) Classic Loki, Boastful Loki, Kid Loki, and, of course, Alligator Loki.
As they evade Alioth, the Void’s cloud monster/garbage disposal, the Loki variants lead Hiddleston’s character to their underground hideout filled with discarded TVA junk. As they descend into the lair, the camera pans past layers of dirt, revealing a jar containing a Frog version/variant of Thor, aka Throg, buried in the ground. Eagle-eyed viewers were quick to notice this as well as the jar’s label reading “T365,” a reference to the character’s comic-book origins. However, this Easter Egg paled in comparison to the Internet’s reaction to the Reptile of Mischief.
Artist Megan Levens on Twitter recently shared some art depicting Loki’s newest scene-stealers. The piece re-imagines Thor: Ragnarok’s now-iconic scene where Thor (Chris Hemsworth) suggests “let’s do get help” to distract some guards, to which Loki replies, “we are not doing get help.” Cut to Thor carrying his brother and screaming “get help!” before throwing Loki at the guards. Later in the film, when Thor, Loki, and Valkyrie are discussing how they are going to defeat Hela, Loki quips, “I’m not doing get help.” Check out Alligator Loki saying the same to Throg below:
Taika Waititi’s signature brand of irreverence and directorial style famously reinvigorated the Thor franchise with Ragnarok. For example, “get help” is said to be a bit of improvisation between the two Odinsons. That gag may even be referenced in episode 5 of Loki when an army of variants, led by President Loki, invade the Loki lair and begin to betray one another. Kid Loki throws Alligator Loki at a member of the army during the resulting brawl, creating a diversion while our Loki and the rest escape, a clever callback to Thor: Ragnarok.
It’s unclear whether or not Loki will feature more of Alligator Loki or Throg. In Thor: Ragnarok, Thorg was teased when Thor returns to Asgard and witnesses a Loki-themed play. In the production, Matt Damon’s actor playing Loki tells Luke Hemsworth’s Thor, “sorry about that time I turned you into a frog.” Presumably, the Throg variant seen in Loki was never turned back into a human. The series’ sixth episode is poised to change the MCU in a big way and, while variants aren’t expected to appear in Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, it’s hard to imagine the events of the show not being referenced. And if Thor: Love and Thunder doesn’t see the return of “get help,” at least now there is Levens’ reptilian take on it.
