Marvel Has Plans For 'Thor: Ragnarok' Side Characters

Marvel may be ready to rock…

Since Thor: Ragnarok has been screened for select audiences to mostly positive feedback, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige is teasing some plans for future projects featuring characters from the movie. Unless the projects are being set in the past, you might consider the following article to have MINOR SPOILERS.

Two of the side characters in Ragnarok appear to have tickled audiences fancy, and those are a pair from the Warbound in the comics: Korg and Miek. Korg is the rock-like Kronan warrior in the comics. You can see a glimpse of him in the trailers, with a bluish hue instead of his comic book orange skin. Miek, in the comics is an insectoid character, native to planet Sakaar. Apparently, the two are paired up at times in the movie and it's something that Marvel will encourage more of. Per Feige:

"We have plans for Korg and Miek" … "When and where we'll have to wait and see, but we, like the audience now that they've seen them, can't get enough."


In Ragnarok, Korg is voiced by director Taika Waititi. Is more Korg voicework what Feige was referring to when he expressed confidence about working with Waititi again? Though Feige isn't ruling out a movie, it does seem like he is aiming smaller:

"… the "Team Thor" short that Taika did with Darryl and Thor were great fun, and are quite doable" … "So there might be opportunities for more things like that."


The Team Thor short gave us an idea what Thor was up during Captain America: Civil War. We're not sure Waititi is so willing though:

"Yes, it all depends on whether they can meet Taika Waititi, the actor, exorbitant fees because Korg is now established in this film and if you want Korg you have to... cash up" … "The actor version doesn't work without the director version."


That's signature Waititi humor (we hope). We'll just have to wait to see where we can catch "Team Warbound" shorts in the future. Perhaps they can front movies that continue the Hulk storyline? Anyway, if you haven't seen it, you can catch a preview of what Korg is like in a clip shown during the Jimmy Kimmel show:


See more of Korg and Miek in Thor: Ragnarok, fighting it's way into theaters November 3.
