Thor fans have wondered how Korg’s all-male species in Love And Thunder could be gay, as the storyline doesn’t seem to match his family background in a past film.
Viewers were left puzzled because in the fourth movie Korg has two fathers but in the 2017 movie Thor Ragnarok his mother is mentioned.
Then later in the movie. Korg has been seen being happily associated with a male character with whom he shares a baby Kronan – confirming that his character is gay.

Thor: Love And Thunder is about how Thor enlists Valkyrie, Korg and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to battle Gorr the Butcher God, who is intent on making the gods disappear.
The last film includes a scene with Korg (voiced by Taika Waititi), who explained to Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) that baby Kronans are created via a special ‘handshake’, after revealing that he was also raised by two fathers.
And while it’s possible to consider more than two people as biological parents, fans took to Twiitter to say they wanted clarification on Korg’s story.

They wrote: ‘I can’t be the only one confused that Korg’s species is gay because Korg tells Ragnorak he was kicked out of his mom and boyfriend’s house and then goes on to talk about his fathers. #ThorLoverAndThunder.
“The only gay thing about it was Val was kissing that woman’s hand, and this whole Korg thing about his species being all male, how come in Thor Ragnarok he says he has na mum sisters.” [sic].
“This is the second Marvel movie I haven’t been to the movies for. Korg said he had a mother and father in Ragnorok. Now I hear his race is a group of male whelping. What? Why does everyone have to be gay? Finished with Marvel.’
