Did Taika Waititi Really Pass Out Rocks to Kids in Thor: Love and Thunder Premiere, Calling Them ‘Limited Edition Korg Toys’?

Taika Waititi strikes again! There is a certain element of comedic humor that only Taiki Waititi has achieved so far. His Oscar-winning film Jojo Rabbit further proves the point. Taika Waititi started his journey into the Marvel Cinematic Universe by directing the blockbuster hit Thor: Ragnarok in the year 2017 which the fans loved instantly. And with the addition of the new Thor: Love and Thunder, it seems Taika Waititi is back at it again!

Limited-edition Korg Toys!

A user by the name of ash the conqueror’ took to Twitter to write out a tweet that is surely something the hilarious director would do.

The tweet is an alleged prank that Taika Waititi has done. Taika Waititi apparently stood at the premiere of his latest film Thor: Love and Thunder and handed out rocks to the attending kids! Calling them limited edition Korg toys, the director played a humourous prank on the attendees and had a laugh. In case you have forgotten Korg or probably don’t know him, here’s a picture to jog your memory:

Korg is a warrior of Kronon descent that made his appearance in the 2017 hit Thor: Ragnarok. Fighting alongside the heroes with a unique sense of humor, Korg was instantly adored by the fans. Making his appearance in further MCU films such as Avengers: EndgameThor: Love and Thunder, Korg has become a fan favorite. The VFX warrior has been voiced by none other than the director of the film Taiki Waititi himself (the reason for his exquisite sense of humor).

Fan responses to the prank are hilarious

However, there has been no confirmation of this prank taking place. Although knowing the director, this is something that is viable for the award-winning director to do so. Thor: Love and Thunder is currently screening in theaters across the world while several people did express their disliking of the film with several disappointing reviews!

Quickly adding fuel to the fire, more people took to Twitter to express their views on the hilarious matter.

Thor: Love and Thunder will be released on 8th July. Being a Taika Waititi film, it is bound to work its way up the records. With Natalie Portman reprising her role as Jane Foster and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher, it is going to be a masterpiece.
