    Yes, Korg's "Thor: Love And Thunder" Partner Is Basically A Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Joke

    "How did that joke fly over my head."

    🚨 Mild Thor: Love and Thunder spoilers ahead. 🚨

    At one point while watching Thor: Love and Thunder, I turned to my friend and said, "Oh, like The Rock" (at a respectable volume). I got a solid "Ohhhhh" in response. If you think this is terribly obvious, then scroll away and congratulate yourself for being the smartest person on the internet — but if you have no idea what I'm talking about, oh baby, have I got a post for you.

    The moment comes near the end of the movie, where it's said that Korg had a child with a man named Dwayne...

    ...and Korg is a rock...

    ...so his boyfriend is Dwayne "The Rock."

    Now, worry not if your name is Robbie and you're reading a very targeted post about how you missed a Thor joke! At least one other person didn't get it at first!

    What's more, daddy Taika (director, cowriter, and voice of Korg) confirmed that the reference was "no coincidence" via a response to a fan Photoshop of Korg and The Rock:

    "no coincidence baby"

    Now, Dwayne will become a superhero in his own right in DC's upcoming Black Adam but would a tiny bit of voice acting action be out of the question for future Korg romps? I think not!

    The Rock on the red carpet

    Anyway, hope you're having a nice day!
