Korg Recruits for the Re-Revolution in New ‘Marvel: Contest of Champions’ Spot Featuring Taika Waititi
Welcome to the first meeting of the Revolution 2.0, or as I like to call it, the “Re-Revolution”
A new motion comic featuring a humorous scene with Thor: Ragnarok stars Korg and Miek recruiting Champions for “The Revolution 2.0” – or as he likes to call it, the “Re-Revolution.” As a special surprise, Taika Waititi (Director of Thor: Ragnarok, What We Do in the Shadows and the upcoming Jojo Rabbit) has reprised his role as Korg for the video! More information on Marvel: Contest of Champions, including the recent addition of Heimdall as a champion, can be found at the game’s website.
