Taika Waititi Says Korg Returns in Thor: Love and Thunder

Taika Waititi Says Korg Returns in Thor: Love and Thunder

"There is twice the Thor in Thor 4", Waitiki joked.

Director Taika Waititi has opened up about what to expect from Thor: Love and Thunder.

"Bringing back a few beloved characters and ...a big part of the film, I [didn't] necessarily decide this, but Thor and Korg are a bit of a duo in this film", he teased. And now it's been confirmed that Korg's tale will continue inThor: Love and Thunder.

In a piece of news that is shocking only to those who can't read, director Taika Waititi has confirmed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that his fan-favorite character, Korg, will return in Thor: Love and Thunder.

When asked by Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima about how Love and Thunder will be different from Ragnarok, Waititi replied: "If you take Ragnarok - which I feel was a very big, outlandish, bombastic film - we're trying to double down on everything we did with that and create something that's more insane, more fun, and even more of a big, big adventure".

Whilst on the red carpet for Jojo Rabbit, Waititi was asked about Thor: Love And Thunder by Entertainment Tonight, and he revealed that he wants it to be more fun, crazier and even bigger than Ragnarok.

Reminding Jen of the script, Reese joked: 'Attain you undergo in mind your lines?' to which her buddy shook her head at. Subsequent to the selfie, the 50-Twelve months-used said: 'And now we're Instagram FRIENDS too.


According to Waititi, the decision of whether or not a larger Thor will appear in "Love and Thunder" comes down to how far the script is set after "Endgame".

"There'll be two of them!"

"I think that is really a very strong aspect in the comic books". The marquee element for this film will, of course, be Natalie Portman's Jane Foster taking up Mjolnir and becoming the new Thor, and personally, I'm excited see what she does with her new power, as well as Thor's reaction to being usurped by his ex-girlfriend and what the status quo is by the film's end. These things change through the shoot and even when we're editing sometime.

Jojo Rabbit arrives in theaters on Friday while Thor: Love and Thunder drops on November 5, 2021.
