Taika Waititi is all set to reprise his role as Korg from Thor: Ragnarok. Korg was one of the funniest and most entertaining side kicks in the film. Taika, who also directed the film, did all the voice work and now he will be back… in Motion Comic Book form.
Marvel’s Contest of Champions is bringing Korg into their universe. He will debut in the game itself on the 30th of August. Korg’s story will introduce him as the leader of the Revolution 2.0… or as he calls it: “Re-Revolution”. Taika Waititi will voice the character for the motion comic as he did in the film. We can all hope this will not be the last time we see Korg.
Here is what Korg had to say about using him in the game, when he becomes available:
Oh, hey there, my name is Korg. As you can see… I am made of rocks. Perishable rocks though, so don’t put me into fights thinking I am invincible, unless my opponent is made of scissors. Ha! … Anyway, Miek is here too and wants to help, so instead of blocking with my rock arms, I let Miek taste some of the action! After all, that’s what friends are for!
You can also find out all about his abilities and uses on the Contest of Champions website. Korg, and by extension, Taika are this week’s spotlight. Check out the video below for more on this newest edition to the Marvel’s Contest of Champions game.
