Korg is one of the most surprising breakout stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now Taika Waititi — the motion capture actor behind the walking pile of rocks — has revealed his inspiration for the character's goofy accent. Speaking with All 4's The Last Leg, Waititi admitted he drew inspiration on the voice from some of the bouncers he's bumped into around New Zealand.
The Last Leg host Adam Hills then went on to ask what Korg's platform would be if the character ever decided to run for public office in New Zealand.
Korg's silver screen introduction came in Thor: Ragnarok, a movie that also served as Waititi's directorial debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although the character didn't appear on the Asgardian ship in Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige says the studio still has plans for the Kronan and his slug-like friend Miek.
"We have plans for Korg and Miek," said Feige in a conversation with Fandango. "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."
Expanding off the idea, Waititi himself said that the duo could
"We were talking about doing a little spin-off," said Waititi. "Like one of these One-Shot short films with Korg and Miek… like [them] just going shopping and things."0comments
