Thor's Roommate Darryl Returns for Rent in Another Marvel Short
Marvel/Disney
Last summer, Marvel Studios released a short film by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi showing Thor's mundane adventures while the other superheroes were all wrapped up in Captain America: Civil War. It caught on, and the God of Thunder's lovably boring roommate Darryl established his own, quiet nook in the MCU.

So it should come as no surprise that he and Thor are back in a new short called Team Thor: Pt. 2, Where Are They Now? which pairs the air-quotes "iconic" duo together once more, with the description: "Rogers & Barnes. Stark & Rhodes. Thor & Darryl." The video will be bundled with the Doctor Strange Blu-ray that comes out this month, along with some Doctor Strange deleted scenes. But you can also see it here:


Thor will likely have returned in Asgard for Ragnarok (where he'll be fighting the Hulk), so it's fitting that he'll probably get kicked out of Darryl's apartment before then, especially if he doesn't have enough Earth money to pay rent. Of particular note is Thor's hammer casually resting on the counter behind him, as well as an ancient shield just sort of laying about.


For anyone who's seen director Waititi's other work, like his vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows or some episodes of Flight of the Conchords, they'll recognize the similar sort of deadpan, extremely silly arguments on display here. The real question is how much of said silly arguments will appear in Ragnarok, which Waititi has described as a "70s/80s sci-fi fantasy" movie. Only time will tell.

And if you haven't seen the first Team Thor yet, please do yourself a favor:

Thor: Ragnarok comes out on November 3, 2017.
