Taika Waititi's Korg is coming back for Thor: Love and Thunder

Taika Waititi's Korg is coming back for Thor: Love and Thunder”

Love him or hate him, Korg will also be returning. No, it's not Valkyrie, or the Grandmaster or the God of Thunder himself, but Taika Waititi's Korg, the biggest banter merchant in the entire Marvel universe.

The filmmaker confirmed the news during an appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel Show when asked about his latest instalment of the Thor franchise. Entertainment of Love and Thunder's story, a remark that typically might suggest everyone's already on the same page about whether Thor will revisit his portly look from Avengers: Endgame (and, presumably, some of the beer-chuggin' emotional baggage that came with it).

Thor has all the time in the world - or two years, to be precise - to decide which version (or versions) of Thor he wants to be before hammering onto movie screens in Thor: Love and Thunder.

"My character's coming back, Korg", he said causing the audience to cheer. He said he had "finished a couple of drafts" of the story, so it sounds like he's making progress. "Thank you so much for that reaction", he said rather incredulously.

Teasing us with what we can expect from Love and Thunder, Taika revealed to Entertainment Tonight, "Well, if you take Ragnarok, which I feel was a very outlandish and big, bombastic film, we're trying double down on everything we did with that and create something that is even more insane and even more of a big adventure".

Kimmel was referring to Jojo Rabbit, Waititi's new movie, which is opening in limited release.

Are you excited to see Thor: Love and Thunder?

"I learned very early on when I was writing the script that there's no way to pitch this movie", Waititi said. Thor: Ragnarok went on to gross over $800 million worldwide.

Just let that image roll around in your head for awhile.
