Avengers: Infinity War was full of Superheroes and it wasn’t short of Supervillains as well even though the movie largely focused upon the Mad Titan. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo managed to do Justice to a larger chunk of the heroes and villains and we have to admit that they did a great job with that. These two Directors and the Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely involved these characters in the best way possible making some of those important, while others not so much. Amidst so many characters, there were some names with the likes of Valkyrie, Hawkeye, etc. that did not actually make it to the film.
Since the movie was already so stuffed and there was so little time to establish each and everything, it is obvious that the creatives had to bench some characters while others could go out and have their moments. What they did very well with the ending was that not only did they give us the big thrill that we were never ready for, they also made way for other characters like Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Valkyrie and Captain Marvel to come in the next part of this mega finale and fulfil their story arcs.
One more such character that was set up really big but did not even appear in the movie was Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie. Her non-appearance was actually really surprising and it definitely needs an explanation. Since we may see Valkyrie return in the next movie, it is highly possible that Taika Waititi’s Korg, and even Miek may return for Avengers 4 as they may be with Valkyrie herself.
Well, the good news now is that the team of Director Joe Russo and writers Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus have mentioned some good insights about the upcoming role of Valkyrie and Korg in the Infinity War commentary, but a bad news also follows. Here’s what they said:
“McFeely – I think we should say that several Asgardians have escaped.
Joe Russo – Several Asgardians have escaped. I have gone on record saying Valkyrie has escaped with some of the Asgardians.
Markus – All I can say is pray for Korg.”
So it is obviously good to know that Valkyrie is going to have a story arc in the next movie, and they are going to indulge with the opening scene of Infinity War which really was not complete. But what Markus said about Korg in particular is worrisome.
After watching Thor: Ragnarok, the one character everyone got attached to was Taika Waititi’s Korg. Everyone in the world feels nothing but happy to see the character and imagining him to die in Avengers 4 does make us a little concerned. Taking by what Markus said, it is highly likely that Korg might have actually got disintegrated. But seeing that disintegration scene with Korg is surely going to make you a little sorrowful right in the beginning of the movie.
It is amazing how TaikaWaititi was able to create so much love and bonding with the character in such short span of time. Let’s just hope that it does not happen the way it looks to be. You can find all this commentary and the full list of special features on the upcoming home video release below:

Avengers: Infinity War was the biggest movie of the year and here’s the official Synopsis of the movie:
“As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain”.
