Thor: Ragnarok promises to take the God of Thunder in a whole new direction later this fall. Fans first got a sneak peek at that new style during last year's San Diego Comic Con, which gave viewers a hilarious documentary-style short directed by Ragnarok director Taika Waititi. The short, entitled 'Team Thor', showed Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth) laying low during the events of Captain America: Civil War.
One of the highlights of that short - and the subsequent sequel - was Thor's new roommate, Darryl (Danny Pearson). With Pearson and Hemsworth proving to be a good comedic duo, many have hoped that they would see more of Darryl in some form in Thor's subsequent Marvel Cinematic Universe outings, even campaigning for a Netflix sitcom about the two.
According to Chris Hemsworth himself, fans could see more of Darryl down the line - it just won't be in Ragnarok. While speaking at the Supanova convention in Sydney, Australia, Hemsworth revealed that Pearson will not reprise his role in Ragnarok, but very well could in next year's Avengers: Infinity War.
Considering the cosmic settings in Ragnarok, it makes sense that Darryl most likely wouldn't be able to make an appearance. But judging by set photos, much of Infinity War will be occurring on Earth. And Thor is lacking in non-superpowered human acquaintances, now that Natalie Portman's Jane Foster has essentially been written out of the franchise. With that in mind, it's not implausible that fans could see a small appearance from Darryl in the already-massive cast of Infinity War.
