A mockumentary featuring Thor renting a flat in Australia and living a (relatively) normal life aired at Comic-Con earlier this summer and recently made its way online. It's a fun little spoof that goes to show how perhaps superpeople and normal people aren't meant to room together, as it seems clear that Thor's roommate Darryl Jacobson becomes more than a little annoyed with the god of thunder.
The "Team Thor" video is meant to be a goofy way to explain why exactly Thor wasn't seen picking a side in Captain America: Civil War. However, as it turns out, fans may not have seen the last of Thor's roommate Darryl after all.
Speaking with Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, IGN reports Darryl may appear again in the future. First, Waititi explained further what Thor was up to following the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron.
"Thor briefly rented a room in a flat in Australia after the Ultron debacle," he tells IGN. "Just to get some downtime — to get away from The Avengers, to get away from America. So he had a little downtime in Australian. And he met this guy Darryl and they shared a flat together. So that's Darryl."
Waititi then implied fans may see Darryl again in some capacity, though he didn't mention specifics.
"I think you probably could see him again," he says. "There may be other little pieces of that thing that everyone saw that may just be a small part of a bigger thing."
There are a couple of ways to view Waititi's statements. It seems like he's either implying that Darryl could make some kind of appearance in Thor: Ragnarok, or that the three-minute spoof video may actually be a part of a much longer version of said spoof, possibly in the same vein as previous Marvel One-Shots. Fans will likely have to wait a while to find out for sure. Waititi is still filming Thor: Ragnarok, and is set to release in theaters Nov. 3, 2017.
In other Marvel news, Groot actor Vin Diesel recently confirmed that the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy will both be appearing in Avengers: Infinity War, though the actor didn't elaborate on how the two groups might team up. According to the film's directors, the movie will serve as both a beginning and an end to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as fans know it.
