(pet Mongoose), RIP Simpson, who or what is the monster, that the series continues to explore serious and complex topics, and Jeri Hogarth’s health issues.

Loki Set Pic Show Major Marvel Corporation’s Involvement

https://www.cbr.com/loki-set-pic-show-roxxons-involvement/

A leaked fan photo from the television series set has leaked online, revealing that the Roxxon will be making an appearance on the show, seen on both a school bus repurposed into an evacuation settle and a nearby shopping cart.

A skyscraper bearing the Roxxon name was briefly seen in the background of the Los Angeles skyline in the original Iron Man film, with a Formula One team in Iron Man 2 seen sponsored by Roxxon. Roxxon’s cameos have continued in a Marvel Cinematic Universe short film as a gas station visited by Phil Coulson while en route to investigate Thor’s hammer in New Mexico while Iron Man 3 had a Roxxon executive captured by the Ten Rings. Roxxon has also had a significant presence in Marvel Television productions, appearing in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Daredevil and, perhaps most prominently Cloak & Dagger (in addition to smaller shoutouts in Runaways and Iron Fist). It is unclear what role the corporation will play in Loki, but will hopefully amount to more than a fleeting cameo.
