Loki season two continues to drop Easter eggs left, right, and center, but in its second episode the show happily climbs aboard Marvel’s “running gag” bandwagon by throwing in a visual reference to one of the MCU’s most divisive movies: Eternals.

During the opening scene of this week’s Loki, the God of Mischief and his TVA analyst BFF Mobius (Owen Wilson) travel back in time to capture the slimy Brad Wolfe (Rafael Casal), a TVA hunter and variant who has absconded to a past point on the Sacred Timeline to build the life he never got to have as a 70s movie star.

At the premiere of his latest film, Zaniac, Loki and Mobius roll up to the red carpet, but not before passing a range of posters advertizing upcoming feature presentations, one of which happens to star Kumail Nanjiani’s Bollywood actor Kingo from Eternals! You can take a closer look at the poster below, as it was captured on set during production on Loki season two.
