While promoting the release of Jojo Rabbit, director Taika Waititi talks about his new Marvel movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, and the return of Natalie Portman as well as his character Korg. "My character's coming back". While talking with ET on Tuesday, Waititi not only confirmed that Korg will be back, but his friendship with Thor will continue to grow as well.

But the director / aka voice of Korg said Thor's on-screen look hasn't been decided on, and that the debate over reviving "Lebowski" Thor or just letting that look enjoy a peaceful retirement in New Asgard is still a point of continuing discussion at Marvel Studios.

Portman quit the Marvel franchise after appearing in Thor: The Dark World, down to creative differences, though it seems Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok inspired her to reprise her role in a big way. But it also sounds as though the finished story has a certain amount of built-in flexibility, since Waititi is still hashing out with the studio the important detail of pegging exactly when, in the MCU timeline, Love and Thunder will unfold.

To beer belly or not to beer belly, that is one question we've been pondering when it comes 2021's Thor: Love and Thunder.

Kimmel said: "The New Zealish aren't good at pitching, huh?" and Waititi wasn't a fan of the invented label. It's from a comic run.

While there has been much speculation over the progress of the script, which Waititi himself had to shut down, he did give an update on the writing. When he tried, he was told, "Stop. But whether it ends up in the film is yet to be seen", he told Variety.

Fair enough, Waititi figured, given that asking any other actor to play Hitler would be a very tough sell, both before and after the fact. "And then it took on a life of its own", he said.

How do people like 'Jojo Rabbit?' It has an 80% on Rotten Tomatoes, with the critical consensus being "Jojo Rabbit's blend of irreverent humor and serious ideas definitely won't be to everyone's taste - but either way, this anti-hate satire is audacious to a fault".
