It seems that Thor and Jane Foster aren't the only Marvel characters fans should be excited are returning to the big screen.

Thor Ragnarok director Taika Waititi stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! this week to promote his newest film, Jojo Rabbit. During the interview in the below video, Kimmel asks Waititi about what he has going on with some of his other projects, particularly Thor: Love and Thunder.

The 44-year-old director first teased that with the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film, we are also getting double the Thors, referring to both Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman taking up the characters.

The What We Do in the Shadows star then spilled even more exciting news. “My character’s coming back, Korg,” he announced, followed by a massive cheer from the audience. He then addressed the reception of the news in Korg’s voice, saying, “Thank you, thank you so much for that reaction.”

The upcoming film will be a first in many ways. Not only will this be the first time an MCU hero will get a fourth installment to their respective series within the franchise, but Tessa Thompson will also return as King Valkyrie and finally get to express her character’s LGBTQ identity.

Jojo Rabbit hits theaters Oct. 18, and Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released Nov. 2021.
