SPOILER WARNING: "Team Thor" details below!
Jeff Goldblum will officially make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the Grandmaster when Thor: Ragnarok opens next week (not counting his tiny surprise cameo during the end credits for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). Now it looks like the character will stick around, at least for a new “Team Thor” mockumentary. Heck, yeah.
Directed by Taika Waititi, there have thus far been two “Team Thor” short films (see below). The first one was released during last year’s San Diego Comic-Con and was included in the Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray. The second -- “Team Thor Part 2: Where Are They Now?” -- was included in the home release for Doctor Strange.
The mockumentary-style videos answer the age-old question: Where was Thor during the events of Civil War and followed Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder, who moves in with an Australian roommate named Darryl. While they may or may not be canon (most likely not), they are hilarious, and quickly became a hit with fans. Meaning: We want more.
Speaking to Radio Times (be aware that the interview has spoilers, so you may want to skip to the very end if you haven’t seen Thor: Ragnarok yet), Goldblum hinted that a third “Team Thor” short has indeed been filmed.
“So what happens? Well, I could go anywhere – I might knock on your door, and say hello. Guess who’s here? I shot a thing with Taika, where there’s a roommate in Australia. I show up at his, and I do knock on his door. And I take up residence in the little flat, as they say here. That’s what I do. And order things from the takeaway restaurant. Buy all the local foods.”
Here are the two shorts, in case you missed them the first time around. Have a look and let us know if you’re looking forward to the Grandmaster joining “Team Thor.”
