An Easter Egg from Spider-Man: No Way Home teases story details to come in Thor: Love and Thunder.
As per usual with every other film and TV series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: No Way Home is filled to the brim with many Easter Eggs to the broader MCU. One Easter Egg includes a reference to the Hawkeye series, but another one spotted from eagle-eyed fans teases some interesting implications for the story of Thor: Love and Thunder.
2022 will be yet another massive year for the MCU, with more original TV series hitting Disney Plus as well as a few new films for the big screen. With Thor: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth will be the first member of the Avengers to get their fourth standalone film. In regards to this particular Easter Egg from Spider-Man: No Way Home, we see a news tick banner upon Peter Parker’s identity reveal that reads, “Political turmoil in New Asgard as Z…”
As one can expect, Marvel Studios always leaves some Easter Eggs for fans to spot as a means to tease what comes next in the franchise. Both Spider-Man: No Way Home and the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder look to further explore the titular heroes in some of the most transformative periods of their lives, and at least in the case for Thor: Love and Thunder, it appears that the titular hero will be dealing with his new journey now that he has appointed Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) as the new leader of Asgard as well as his ongoing adventures with the Guardians of the Galaxy and a reunion with his old flame, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman).
Here is the synopsis for Spider-Man: No Way Home:
“For the first time in the cinematic history of Spider-Man, our friendly neighborhood hero’s identity is revealed, bringing his Super Hero responsibilities into conflict with his normal life and putting those he cares about most at risk. When he enlists Doctor Strange’s help to restore his secret, the spell tears a hole in their world, releasing the most powerful villains who’ve ever fought a Spider-Man in any universe. Now, Peter will have to overcome his greatest challenge yet, which will not only forever alter his own future but the future of the Multiverse.”
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, No Way Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Tony Revolori, Martin Starr, J.B. Smoove, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau, Benedict Wong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx, Thomas Haden Church, Rhys Ifans, Charlie Cox, with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
