Just before we meet Thor in

New Asgard,

Banner and Rocket meet

Valkyrie on a pier and discuss Thor's situation.

In the far background, there is a large clothed CGI character, roughly Hulk- or Titan-sized.

The character in question

enter image description here

Who is this CGI character?

Incidentally, it's definitely not

Korg, as he will be encountered moments later on Thor's couch.

    I'm confused by the down voting. I was wondering the same thing after my first viewing... – Odin1806 May 2 '19 at 15:23

    @Odin1806 I was under the impression people were downvoting because of no image so wasn't sure who it was about but there has been some since the image was added. My only other guess is that people just think it's a random background guy so "meh, not interesting". – TheLethalCarrot May 2 '19 at 15:26
  • @TheLethalCarrot - Obviously I got here after the edit this morning, but since I gave an up vote someone else has thrown another one on... either way, well done finding the image sir! – Odin1806 May 2 '19 at 15:31

    It looks like a picture from a pirated version of the movie... – Chris May 2 '19 at 17:28

    @Chris, regardless of where it came from, this is fair use, I believe. – ThePopMachine May 3 '19 at 13:19

I believe that the CGI character is a member of the Sakaaran Rebellion, originally led by Korg in Thor: Ragnarok. Some members of the rebellion were killed while fighting against the Berserker army on Asgard, while others were killed by Thanos and the Black Order during their attack on the Statesman. However, a few survived and settled on Earth to create New Asgard. The audience definitely knows that Korg and Miek survive. Two other possible survivors that we know are Biff and Tasba.

enter image description here


Biff is the character in the lower image. Tasba is the purple character seen in the bottom left of the top image. They do not have confirmed deaths, so it is entirely possible that one of them is the character in the scene. However, Biff appears to be a human in a suit, so it is unlikely that it is him.

Additionally, the character could be the black character with blue paint featured on the right of the top picture, who is clearly computer-generated and fits the stocky build of the character in the scene.

  • If you look closely at the structure of the arms, shoulders and head, and the size, I believe the best chance is that it's the black and blue character if it's any of these. – ThePopMachine May 15 '19 at 15:15
  • Do you have any higher resolution? That first image is useless. – OrangeDog Jan 13 at 12:24

Looking at the pictures from this article detailing some Thor Ragnorak concept art, it would appear to be Korg's friend and fellow gladiator Miek.

Here's a photo from the first article

Miek He's an insect who has knives for hands

    Wasn't Miek in Thor's cabin? – Jenayah May 2 '19 at 17:22

    @Jenayah yes and is a lot smaller than that character – TheLethalCarrot May 2 '19 at 17:23

    @TheLethalCarrot Wasn't he just not wearing armor? – Laurel May 2 '19 at 17:41

    @TheLethalCarrot What I mean is that Miek was the slug-like creature on the couch with Korg. See here for a mention of this. – Laurel May 2 '19 at 18:10

    Miek is on Thor's couch immediate after this scene. It's definitely not Miek. – ThePopMachine May 2 '19 at 19:38
