As the forthcoming Thor: Ragnarok will incorporate parts of the hugely popular “Planet Hulk” storyline, which sees the Hulk stranded on an alien planet and participating in gladiator-like arena fights, it will also include characters who normally wouldn’t play a significant role in a Thor film. Ragnarok director Taika Waititi recently took to his Instagram to tease such a character’s appearance.
Korg is a member of an alien race known as the Kronan and has fought alongside the Hulk numerous times. For reference, in the opening battle sequence of 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, Thor actually fought and easily defeated a Kronan.
Thor: Ragnarok is set to hit theaters November 3, 2017, and stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/The Hulk, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Karl Urban as Skurge The Executioner, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.
