New ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Clip Introduces Us To Taika Waititi’s Korg

Korg Thor: RagnarokThor: Ragnarok is closer than ever, and more clips just keep getting dropped. So many clips! In a new one Chris Hemsworth brought with him to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, we get out first real look at new character Korg.

Korg is a full-CGI character but is hilariously voiced by Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, and the clip from the film shows that he’s quite confused by Thor’s particular preference for his magic hammer. The comic banter is quite incredible and is but a taste of the gut-busting stuff waiting in the full film.

There’s also the full Chris Hemsworth interview on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, as well as a clip of Matt Damon (rumoured to be cameoing in Thor: Ragnarok) crashing said interview. Check out all the clips below!

Thor: Ragnarok stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins. Here’s the official synopsis:

Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk, his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.

Thor: Ragnarok is in cinemas November 3.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie

X-Men Marvel Comics

So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think 20th Century Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big screen as soon as possible.

There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focuses on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.
