The director’s longtime wish has been fulfilled!
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has thanked Marvel Studios for putting Thanos’ helicopter in the Disney Plus series, Loki.
Since Loki debuted last month, just about every single crazy thing imaginable has happened in the Disney Plus show. The latest episode pushed this even further by revealing just where the Time Variance Authority sends things that disrupt the sacred timeline. The result is an episode that is loaded with easter eggs that are too numerous to count.
One such easter egg was Thanos’ helicopter that could be spotted earlier in the episode. In of the Mad Titan’s goofier appearances, the character flew around in a helicopter with his name literally printed on the vehicle. Thanos obviously has not flown a helicopter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but director James Gunn has longed for Marvel Studios to include it in the universe.
In 2015, the director first posted about Thanos’s helicopter stating that he couldn’t wait to see it in the future. In a more recent post, the director thanked Marvel Studios for finally including the vehicle:
