Taika Waititi just hilariously confirmed that his fan-favorite character Korg will return in Thor: Love and Thunder.
When Taika Waititi came onboard to direct Thor: Ragnarok, he completely refreshed the character after the disappointing reception to Thor: The Dark World. With Taika Waititi’s zany comedy and quirky directing style, fans fell in love with the character all over again. But another supporting character quickly stole the limelight from Thor once he landed on Sakaar, Korg. Taika Waititi played the scene stealing rocky gladiator and it turns out he’ll be returning for Thor: Love and Thunder.
In a new interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live ahead of his new film Jojo Rabbit, Taika Waititi revealed that Korg would be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thor: Love and Thunder, hilariously thanking the audience in Korg’s voice. The director also went on to confirm that he’s recently finished a few drafts of the sequel and that there’s more Thor to come. Watch the interview with Taika Waititi on Jimmy Kimmel Live below.
“I just finished a couple of drafts of that story. There’s more Thor! There’s twice the Thor in Thor 4… Natalie Portman’s coming back, she’ll be playing a female version of Thor, it’s from a comic run. There’ll be two of them! My character is coming back, Korg. Thank you. Thank you so much for that reaction, I’m overwhelmed.”
