Thor: Ragnarok: Director Taika Watiti Played Korg & Three More Roles

Director Taika Watiti, who seems to be following on the footsteps of Iron Man director Jon Favreau has reportedly played four supporting roles in the just released Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok.

While Taika Watiti is getting a lot of accolade for his work and utilizing his film-making sensibilities in the best possible way in Thor: Ragnarok, not many are aware that he essayed not one, but four roles in the film. Everybody knows that Watiti played Korg, but who are the other three characters?

Taika Watiti shared a few set and products secrets to Empire Online including playing other roles apart from Korg in MCU‘s Thor 3.“I am one of the heads on the three-headed alien, this character called Haju [this may not be correct spelling], I’m the head on the right. And I’m also the motion-capture for Surtur.” Though Watiti also did mo-cap for the fire demon that fulfilled the prophecy of the end of Asgard, American actor Clancy Brown was the one to provide its voice. Apart from that, the director was the one to play a stand-in for The Hulk after Mark Ruffalo had left.

Taika Watiti might join the likes of director Jon Favreau who continues to reprise his role as Tony Stark’s (Iron Man) trusted aid, Happy Hogan. Favreau will also appear in MCU’s next – Avengers: Infinity War.

The threequel is doing extremely well at the box office, having exceeded expectations within an opening weekend of $121 million. The film is all set to top the box office in the second weekend too, which could be because of the rave reviews that it is getting, or fans are choosing to watch it all over again.

Thor: Ragnarok has released across the globe, and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, with Mark Ruffalo, and Anthony Hopkins.
