Movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe often come chock full of cameos and Easter eggs, and Thor: Ragnarok was no different in that regard. Director Taika Waititi stole several scenes with his performance as the lovable Korg, but it turns out that he actually teamed up with Thor actor Chris Hemsworth for another cameo that quite literally involved putting their heads together. Check out the newly-discovered cameo, below.
We knew Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi had grown close over Ragnarok's production, but this cameo literally joins them at the neck. The first face to pop out on this three-headed is Waiti (the head on the far right), who can be seen staring directly at the back of Korg (also played by Waititi). Then, on the far left side of the creature's head, the face seems to resemble that of Thor: Ragnarok star Chris Hemsworth -- though what he's looking at isn't exactly clear.
The head in the middle is the one that fans on Reddit, who initially discovered the image, can't quite seem to come to an overall consensus on. Some have suggested that the middle head is meant to look like The Wall star John Cena, while others have posited the possibility that it's actually Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
And to think, that's just the tip of the iceberg in terms of cameos featured in Thor: Ragnarok. In addition to Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth, the third entry in the Thor saga also featured cameos by actors like Hunt for the Wilderpeople's Sam Neil, and Chris Hemsworth's brother Luke Hemsworth. Then, there was also the widely talked-about cameo by Downsizing's Matt Damon.
Although the home entertainment release of the flick is coming soon, audiences will have to wait and see if we ever get another Taika Waititi-directed Thor movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The filmmaker joked to CinemaBlend about a possible opening for Thor 4 that would involve a Jurassic Park reunion between Sam Neil, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern, but whether or not Marvel would ultimately go for that much less another Thor-oriented movie remains to be seen. If nothing else, we can presume Thor 4 would feature some fun cameos if it ever comes together.
With yet another Thor: Ragnarok cameo discovered, now is the time to look ahead to guess as to what other cameos may be on the horizon for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 3 slate. We won't have to wait too much longer to know for sure, as Black Panther will debut in theaters later this month on February 16, and Thor Odinson will reunite with the rest of the MCU heroes in the battle against Thanos (Josh Brolin) and The Black Order when Avengers: Infinity War premieres on May 4.
