While Mobius takes Loki through the events of the Battle of New York via a projector in the Time Theater, a few classic shots from “The Avengers” pop up. One is set at the Avengers Tower, where the superhero team stares Loki down after his loss. Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) is at the forefront with his bow pointed right at the trickster, while the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes stand menacingly behind him. A second “Avengers” moment is the famous panoramic shot of the Avengers as they stand in a circular formation on the street during the battle in New York.
In a third shot, as Mobius tells Loki he’s “not very mischievous,” there’s a brief appearance of an “Avengers” actress in the theater projection. Taken straight from “The Avengers” film, there’s a throwback of the waitress, who, Captain America saved during the battle. Played by Ashley Johnson, the waitress has a small speaking role in “The Avengers” when she talks to a news team, expressing her thanks to the Avengers — specifically Cap — for saving her life.
The small cameo clip in “Loki” is of the waitress as she hides inside her restaurant looking at the destruction Loki and his Chitauri army are causing in New York City. Her appearance lasts for only a few seconds and could be easily missed if viewers aren’t paying close enough attention.
