The seventh episode of the first season of “What If…?” is “assuming” Thor is full of mind all day long just thinking about having fun. What kind of world would it be like?
And how many eggs and surprises are hidden in this timeline, and what else are they echoing the official history?
This article will sort out the 30 eggs in the seventh episode of the first season of “What If…?”
- The styles and models of off-road vehicles by Jane and Dyss
Jane and Darcy’s off-road vehicles have the same style and model as Thor in the film history.
At the same time, it also illustrates the first bifurcation point that is different from the official history of film.
In this timeline, Loki was not adopted by Odin, and Thor did not learn the humility that should be in life.
This led him to not land in New Mexico, but to Las Vegas for his first trip to Earth.
- Gamblers in Hawaiian shirts
A Hawaiian shirt worn by a gambler in Las Vegas, dressed as a tribute to the logo of Taika David Waititi, director of “Thor 3: Ragnarok”.
In the world view of the film history, Korg, voiced by Taika David Waititi and performed by motion capture, also wears a shirt with the same pattern.
- Casket of Ancient Winters
When observers mentioned the past of Marvel movie history, they could see Rocky as a child.
He used Frost Giant’s artifact, Casket of Ancient Winters, to prank Thor.
- Odin sleeps
Odin will enter the state of “Odin’s long sleep” every time, and the animation also presents this scene.
But the film history is that Rocky is next to Odin, this time “What If…?” is replaced by Thor.
It is worth noting that in this timeline, Odin and Frost Giant are doing well.
So Frigga didn’t worry about the safety of her husband Odin during his long sleep, so he decided to go on vacation with her good sister.
- Odin’s Infinite Gloves
In the early days, in the “Thor” movie, Odin’s arsenal can be seen with infinite gloves.
But this setting is a bit contradictory to the later story.
After “Thor 3: Ragnarok”, Hela broke into the arsenal and said that Odin’s Infinite Gloves were fake, so as to solve the problem of continuity.
In the story of “What If…?”, we can still see “fake infinite gloves” appearing in the background.
- Thor’s Predator Team
Thor’s party-loving personality allows him to make friends with forces from all over the universe. In the early days, you can see Yondu Udonta and him lead the predator team and Skrull.
In addition, this time, the first mate Krelin played by James Gunn’s younger brother Sean Gunn has a slight adjustment in the animation. You can use your hairstyle to recognize people.
- Thor’s relationship with “Bushwacker”
“Bushwacker”, played by Karl Urban in the movie, is one of Thor’s long-term enemies in the comics.
He also appeared at parties. In this timeline, “Bushwacker” and Thor had a very good relationship.
- Wine that can never be finished
At the party, Thor said that the wine can never be finished, even if you try to drink it up, you can’t do it, all because of magic blessings.
And this segment is a segment that echoes “Thor 3: Ragnarok”, the “Doctor Strange” in the movie constantly pours Thor’s wine with magic.
Of course, this also tells us one thing.
That is Thor in the timeline of “What If…?” Perhaps because he loves parties too much, he discovered that he could drink beer with magic and unlimited beer earlier than his true history.
- “Grandmaster” and “Topaz”
Among the party guests are the two main counters “Grandmaster” and “Topaz” from Thor: Ragnarok.
Obviously in this timeline, they and Thor are also friends.
- Echoing the story of the comic “Marvel Fanfare #36”
This episode mentions Fandral, one of the three warriors. When he woke up drunk one time, he found a goat named Gerry beside him.
This segment echoes the 36th issue of the comic story “Marvel Fanfare” launched in 1988.
The story describes Fandral and a goat going to the island of love to meet the three goddesses of fate, and it turns out that this is Loki’s conspiracy.
- Nebula wants to change his eyes
When Nebula and Korg were gambling, Nebula said he hoped to make money and put new eyes on it.
This corresponds to the plot in which Nebula loses to Gamora in the official history of the movie, where part of the organic organization will be removed and converted into a biochemical unit.
Valkyrie and Drax also have guest appearances.
The Valkyrie of this timeline did not develop like in “Thor 3: Ragnarok”, she ran to the “Grandmaster” to participate in a death match.
14.Elvis Presley, actor
The Elvis Presley actor who presided over the wedding of Darcy and Howard the Duck looks very much like Kurt Russell.
This is an interesting easter egg, because Kurt Russell has played Elvis in many movies, not to mention his role as the father of Star-Lord in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In addition, there are two points to note.
The first point is that foreign fans like the pairing of Darcy and Howard the Duck very much.
Another point is that Elvis Presley, who hosted the wedding, reads “Love Me Tender” on the cover of the book, which is the title of Elvis Presley’s song.
Jane and Thor used couple tattoos together.
Jane stabs “magic” and Thor stabs “science”. In Thor, they mentioned that magic is just another scientific argument.
- Tribute to “The Hangover”
The scene where everyone had a party and hangover in a Las Vegas hotel was a full tribute to the scene of “The Hangover” starring Bradley Cooper.
Rocket Racoon, dubbed by Bradley Cooper, is even drunk at the hotel sink in this episode of “What If…?”
- Rabbit lying in the sink
In this episode of “What If…?”, Rocket Racoon was complained about as a rabbit lying in the sink.
This common joke first appeared in “Avengers 3: Infinity War”.
Thor in this timeline also took selfies with the golden priestess of Guardians of the Galaxy 2!
Does it mean when will they prepare for Adam Warlock to appear on the stage?
19.Frost Giant version of Loki
As mentioned above, the difference between this timeline and the film history is that Odin confiscated Loki, so Loki was raised in the Frost Giant way.
The Frost Giant version of Rocky first appeared in the Marvel movie Multiverse of “Mr. Sausage’s Kitchen”.
The Frost Giant version of Loki also appeared in the archive screen of the Time Variation Authority in the “Loki” episode.
When Captain Marvel came to Earth, he used the well-known “Whitesnake” in the 1980s to describe Thor’s appearance.
On the other hand, Captain Marvel, who also represents the MCU version, quite likes the setting of the 80s culture.
- Shout Thor’s Hammer
Thor shouted Thor’s Hammer, and the picture where the hammer swept across Captain Marvel’s face also appeared in “Avengers 4: Endgame.”
- Two British scenes
The two British scenes in this episode of “What If…?” are the Thames and Stonehenge.
Two locations happen to be the key to the plot development of “Thor 2”.
- Loki was overwhelmed by a hammer
The scene of Captain Marvel being crushed to the ground by Thor’s Hammer is a tribute to the movie Loki’s exit.
- Surtur without hostility
On this timeline, Odin and Frost Giant get along well.
Coupled with the fun-loving personality of the party Thor, Surtur, the flame giant, is also not hostile to him.
There is even a scene of misunderstanding that the Statue of Liberty is alive and flirting with it.
- Mantis and Mick cameo
When the crowd’s party stage came to Chris Hemsworth’s Australian hometown, more characters came to guest appearances.
They are Mantis and Korg’s insect creature friend Mick.
- Dr. Erik Selvig and Thanos
The roles of two fathers: Dr. Erik Selvig and Thanos.
Although none of them appeared in this episode, they were all mentioned briefly by their daughters, Jane and Nebula.
Maria Hill said that Captain Marvel would be distracted by cats, and Darcy said that Captain Marvel has a cat that swallows everything, which is referring to the orange cat Goose.
- The Leaning Tower of Pisa is straightened
When he knew that his mother was coming to Earth, Thor immediately sorted out the chaotic environment beside him.
But he mistakenly thought that the Leaning Tower of Pisa was crooked by him, so he hurriedly straightened it.
This satirizes this timeline Thor is stupid, and also pays tribute to the behavior of Superman Leaning Tower of Pisa in the “Superman 3” movie.
- Deeds of Captain Marvel
The fact that Frigga knows Captain Marvel proves that the heroine’s deeds have been circulated throughout the universe. Hopefully, there will be more descriptions in the future.
- Ultron Vision
The last appearance of “Ultron Vision” is obviously the villain of the first season of “What If…?”.
It is estimated that he will invade the multiverse and let the observers convene Captain Carter…and other heroes of different time and space to form a “multiverse guardian” to resolve this crisis.
Last reminder, in order to be separated from Zheng Stor.
This time, the Thor in “What If…?” is called “Party Thor”, and this name first appeared in Funko Toys.
