2016’s massive hit, Captain America: Civil War, saw some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful players knock each other about in a fight of epic proportions! Of course, the two heaviest hitters who have found fame on the silver screen: Thor and the Hulk were nowhere to be seen. . To explain his absence, Marvel dropped Team Thor in the summer pairing up the God of Thunder with his roommate, Darryl Jacobson, and as luck would have it, the pair may be reuniting soon.
Team Thor premiered at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con as a stand-in for a lack of footage for the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok scheduled for release on November 3rd, 2017.
The clip is a mockumentary-style piece directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in The Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, and Thor: Ragnarok). Thor is awaiting contact from his good pal, Tony Stark, to see if he needs any help with anything back in the Big Apple. Thor has taken up with regular Joe, Darryl Jacobson, to get some much needed ‘me time’ and proceeds to accompany him to the office and have him draft emails for him. Since its debut, fans have been clamoring for another short of the two characters and it looks like those hopes may soon be answered.
A thread started on Blu-ray Forum has indicated that the release of Marvel’s Doctor Strange will include a new short of Thor and Darryl titled, Team Thor: Part 2. While that may not be the most imaginative title in the world, it fits perfectly with the silly nature of the first short. Fortunately, it won’t be long until this short hits the shelves as the Doctor Strange Blu-ray is set to be released on February 28th.
