Thor's Roommate Darryl Might Be In Ragnarok

To help explain Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) noticeable absence in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi put together a humorous video that shows the God of Thunder in Australia, taking a break from his superhero duties and awkwardly living with a commoner named Darryl Jacobson, and it was unveiled at San Diego Comic Con and officially released online a month later.

It was so well-received, a Change.org petition (currently has 3,048 supporters) was started in the hopes of getting the mockumentary turned into a full-blown television series on Netflix. While that almost certainly won't happen, that doesn't mean we won't see Darryl again.

"Thor briefly rented a room in a flat in Australia after the Ultron debacle," Waititi explained to 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.

"I think you probably could see him again," he continued. "There may be other little pieces of that thing that everyone saw that may just be a small part of a bigger thing."

The cast of Thor: Ragnarok features returning stars Chris Hemsworth (Rush) in the title role for the fifth time; Tom Hiddleston (Kong: Skull Island) as Thor's adversarial, adopted brother, Loki; Idris Elba (The Dark Tower) as the Asgardian sentry, Heimdall; and Sir Anthony Hopkins (Silence of the Lambs) again portraying Odin, Ruler of Asgard. Newcomers to the franchise include Cate Blanchett (Cinderella) as the mysterious and powerful new villain Hela, Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park) as the eccentric Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson (Creed) as the classic hero Valkyrie, Karl Urban (Star Trek) as Skurge, and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) reprising his role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk.
