Marvel Studios kicked off Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe by bringing a huge superhero roster together for Captain America: Civil War. Two Avengers who were noticeably absent from the fighting, however, are among the strongest in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Avengers: Age of Ultron ended with Hulk flying off to an unknown destination and Thor heading back to Asgard, and it will be Thor: Ragnarok that reunites the two.
But before Jade Jaws and the God of Thunder team up in the third Thor solo film, Ragnarok director Taika Waititi explored the camaraderie between the two by taking a decidedly lighter approach to superhero partnerships in the mockumentary, Team Thor. The brief comedic short showed that what Thor missed out on in Civil War, he more than made up for by moving in with roommate Darryl Jacobson. Now, the director has shared a new behind-the-scenes photo that appears to be part of the second video.
Waititi posted the photo on Instagram showing Thor sitting at a table surrounded by gourds and pumpkins. Outside of the earthly setting, the biggest sign pointing to it being involved with Team Thor: Part 2 is the caption stating that the photo was taken by Darryl. Take a look at the photo below:
The image doesn't give away much, but with the loads of food present, and the long-running love of feasts that Asgardians have, it isn't hard to imagine that Thor will try and share more of his customs with his current roommate. And in case you were concerned the video wouldn't continue the enchanted hammer-based humor of the first installment, you need only look and see Mjolnir seated in a highchair -- which raises the question, is the the chair worthy?
Luckily for those who enjoyed the first video, the sequel will be along soon. It was revealed a few weeks ago that Team Thor: Part 2 is a special feature attached to the Doctor Strange Blu-ray. This follows the release of the first clip with the Civil War home video release after first debuting at San Diego Comic-Con. After the great reception the first clip enjoyed, it's not hard to imagine the follow-up will soon have people talking as well. Considering the studio seems to have put a hold on the Marvel One-Shots, these mockumentaries could well become a more popular replacement.
Doctor Strange arrives on Blu-ray and DVD on February 28, 2017.
