The marvellous and godlike heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been a crown jewel of Marvel Studios' storytelling. In MCU-616, characters like Thor, Loki, and the Eternals have all become part of everyday lives. This has increased the possibilities for one of the superhero film genre's greatest assets... Easter eggs.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has created a lore that extends beyond any film franchise. Let alone the established lore of over 80 years of Marvel Comics. Easter eggs have become a staple of the MCU with almost every frame providing opportunities for hidden details.
Fans spend the majority of their time watching MCU projects leaned forward in their seats. Easter eggs can appear at any time within lines of dialogue, iconic comic book locations, and especially within the set, as continues to be the case with the most recent story in development.
Loki Season 2 Set: King Appears
According to a newly-leaked set photo, Loki Season 2 will include an in-world poster of "The Great" Kingo. The poster is for a film starring Kumail Nanjiani's Kingo, a Hollywood family for decades.
InEternals, it was revealed that this long line of Bollywood actors has just been Kingo living his immortal life as a family of actors. This meant that every descendent of Kingo was just Nanjiani's Kingo, the next great movie star.
The poster on the set of Loki Season 2 is similar to those Kingo keeps on his private jet.
This is a set photo from Season 2 of Loki, which was shot outside theNoel Coward Theatre in London, indicating that, despite both Kingo and Loki being cosmic-based characters, Loki will return to Earth and in the 1970s in Season 2.
Kingo's Legend Remains
Many questions were asked when it was revealed that the Eternals had been living among humans on Earth for centuries. One of the biggest is, what have the Eternals been doing this entire time? Some took jobs and moved around the world. Others decided to retreat into solitude and hide away from the ones they once protected.
Kingo took a different route in stepping into the limelight and forming an imaginary line of Bollywood superstars. It has already been referenced in the MCU inMs. Marvel, with Kamala and Kamran debating the hierarchy of Bollywood acting. Another organic and seamless integration of one MCU project into another.
This poster will be used in Season 2 of Loki. Kingo states inEternals that he and Thor are related, implying that Loki may also know the great Bollywood actor Eternal. If Loki finds himself in London seeing Kingo on a poster, will he be looking at an old friend?
These Easter eggs bring the Marvel Cinematic Universe together in a weave of comic book movie nerds leaning forward like the Leonardo DiCaprio gif.Loki Season 2 will expand the legend of Kingo while also expanding the MCU connectivity.
