THOR: RAGNAROK Director Taika Waititi Actually Played Three Different Characters In The Movie

We all know that Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi brought Korg to life in the Marvel Studios threequel but the filmmaker has now revealed that he also starred as two more unexpected characters.

Taika Waititi did an amazing job playing Korg in Thor: Ragnarok and stole the show in every scene he appeared in. He was hilarious from start to finish, something which should come as no surprise if you've seen his work in front of the camera in the likes of What We Do In The Shadows and The Hunt For The Wilderpeople. However, in a new interview, he's revealed a couple more cameo appearances!

Those were both made by Waititi as he played two more characters, including one of Thor: Ragnarok's lead villains. "I am one of the heads on the three-headed alien, this character called Haju. I'm the head on the right. And I'm also the motion-capture for Surtur." He was ultimately voiced by Clancy Brown but it's definitely a surprise to learn that he played both the adorable Korg and fearsome Surtur!

In another unexpected reveal, Waititi confirmed that only practical effects were used in the scenes with Doctor Strange where he teleported Thor around his Sanctum Sanctorum. "It was all in-camera. Just jump cuts – hard-cutting to Chris doing a little wobble, as if he'd just arrived. For me, it was great - we didn't need to do some sparkly VFX illusion. That stuff is very satisfying as a filmmaker."
