Thor was visibly absent in Captain America: Civil War, leading many people to question the whereabouts of the god of thunder. A recent short film, directed by Thor: Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi quelled these questions with a mighty (and funny) blow, hinting as well on what could be a lighter take on the characters and movie franchise in the upcoming third film.
The clip, which can be seen below details how Thor, after Age of Ultron, moved to Australia for some “me” time, crashing in with a guy named Darryl Jacobson. The hilarious video then details, some of the stuff the Marvel hero has been doing, like emailing Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers.
Thanos also made a cameo in the short video, albeit a (bad) drawing of him, being called the “purple” guy who never left his chair. Banner also sat down with the Norse god, to talk about the aftermath of Civil War and explaining why neither of them was with the rest of the Marvel superheroes.
True Marvel fans may notice some of the easter eggs hidden in the video, too. Like the current location of some of the infinity stones which can be seen in Thor’s art project with yarn. In the short, the superhero was also able to surmise that the purple guy, Thanos, has been the one orchestrating all the mayhem that the universe has been facing, so far.
The short’s director, Waititi, is best known for his light-hearted and usually comedic movies like Eagle vs Shark, What We Do in the Shadows, Boy, and the Hunt for the Wilder people. With the director holding the helm for the third Thor movie, fans may expect a different, another worldly take on the hero and the rest of Asgard.
Thor will be joined by the Hulk in Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017.
