Taika Waititi Confirms Korg Will Be In Thor 4
No mention if Noobmaster69 will finally make an appearance though.
One of the breakout characters from Thor: Ragnarok was none other than Korg, played by director Taika Waititi. The rock man appeared in Avengers: Endgame, and now, he's going to officially be a part of the fourth movie in the Thor franchise, Love and Thunder.
During the appearance, which you can see below, director Waititi discussed the upcoming 2021 movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, and he jokingly said, "There's more Thor. There's twice the Thor." He continued, stating Natalie Portman would also be playing a version of Thor in this movie. However, the best moment of the interview came when he said that his character, Korg, would be making his return.
As to what Korg will be up to in this movie, only Waititi knows for sure, as the movie is still in pre-production. The last time we saw Korg, he was in New Asgard--Tønsberg in Norway--and he's been gaming hard and dealing with an annoying gamer named Noobmaster69. He's spent his days with Thor and Miek, locked up in a house, eating, drinking, and having a good time.
Thor: Love and Thunder was announced at San Diego Comic-Con back in July. Waititi will return to direct, and the movie will star Portman as Jane Foster, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie. During SDCC, Portman walked out on stage holding Mjolnir. It's apparent the next movie will play with Jason Aaron's Thor comic book run, where Foster picked up the mantle after Thor was deemed unworthy for the role.
Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on November 5, 2021.
