The Return Of Korg And Miek
Thor: Ragnarok has some amazing characters, but two of the most surprising breakout personalities are rock-man Korg and his insectoid pal, Miek. Based on characters from the Planet Hulk comic book, Taika Waititi reimagined them as (part of) the film’s comic relief, giving himself the role of the unexpectedly chirpy, optimistic gladiator and revolutionary.
At the end of the movie, both Korg and Miek are on the Asgardian refugee ship, hinting that they’re going to stick around the MCU. Thankfully, this has been confirmed by Marvel chief Kevin Feige, who’s teased that there’s a plan in place for the pair.
“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.”
Feige’s comments are interesting, as they suggest that the duo won’t simply return in Thor 4 but could crossover to a different sub-franchise. The most obvious option is that they could pop up in either Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4 and help defeat Thanos. After that, it might be fun to see them in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Korg and Miek would fit right in with Star-Lord’s gang of misfit heroes, don’t you think?
