A new Easter egg from Thor: Ragnarok reveals a surprising cameo from director Taika Waititi.

There’s plenty of references and Easter eggs hiding across the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but a fan with a keen eye recently spotted a new cameo from none other than Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi in the God of Thunder’s third solo outing. Waititi recently confirmed that the script for the next Thor film, Love and Thunder is finished, teasing plenty of romance ahead for the Norse God. But it seems the director managed to make another appearance in Ragnarok that largely went unnoticed by fans.

A Marvel fan on Reddit, ‘shadyarya25’ posted a screenshot from Thor: Ragnarok during a scene involving all the gladiators on Sakaar, pointing out that a character in the background with three heads is actually director Taika Waititi himself. Obviously the director also played the lovable Korg in both Ragnarok and Avengers: Endgame, but apparently he couldn’t help but make a second cameo in the film. Take a look below.
