‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Featured Hidden Tribute to Iron Man and Black Widow
The movie event of the summer thus far delivered a whole lot of laughs and classic Marvel action, as Thor set a record with his fourth solo film; it also featured some surprising hearts, and some hidden easter eggs, as Thor: Love and Thunder featured a hidden tribute to Iron Man and Black Widow.
There is really no understating how excited fans were for the long-awaited return of Marvel’s God of Thunder, who was primed to dominate the peak summer box office months with the latest installment of his Marvel Cinematic Universe saga.
The film boasted one of the shortest promotional campaigns of any Marvel film, but it was a campaign that showcased a ton of fantastic moments that fans could look forward to prior to the film’s release; and some that foreshadowed incredible scenes that awaited audiences.
One of the most interesting scenes shown in the promotional campaign for the latest Thor film is a now famous scene that shows Chris Hemsworth’s Marvel character having all of his clothes blown away by the god Zeus, revealing the godly physique of Hemsworth and a fantastic back tattoo on the character.
As it turns out, the tattoo was thoroughly revealed in the film, and not only was it a clear message of mourning for the film’s eponymous character’s brother, but Thor: Love and Thunder also used this moment to feature a hidden tribute to Iron Man and Black Widow.
Originally found by ComicBook.com, a closer look at Thor’s back tattoo shows that it was actually a mural dedicated to all of the people that he had lost in his life; with the main focus being his brother in the ‘RIP LOKI’ writing as well as the famous horned helmet.
The tattoo, however, also features a scroll with several names of Thor’s deceased friends; it seems to read, Mother, Father, Heimdall, Loki, Tony, and Natasha, depicting everyone close to Thor that unfortunately met their demise.
Although the tattoo is played for comedic purposes, it also puts into perspective just how much loss Thor has had in his life, with the film being a comedic way of dealing with the characters mourning and a lack of purpose.
