What’s an Asgardian to do when he’s not invited to take a side in Tony Stark and Steve Rogers’ little pissing match? Drop in on his average roommate’s office job, make Homeland-esque conspiracy theory boards about Thanos, and tuck Mjolnir in at night, apparently.
Marvel Studios has finally gifted us with Civil War: Team Thor, the amazing mockumentary tracking Thor’s whereabouts during that other Civil War movie. All of the San Diego Comic-Con writeups didn’t do justice to how absolutely adorable this little gem is. After watching three and a half minutes, all we can say is that Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok needs to get here as soon as possible.
And even though it’s the apocalypse, Ragnarok should hew closer to Team Thor than Thor: The Dark World. Chris Hemsworth is positively delightful with his theories about Thanos (“doesn’t like standing up”) and sketches of giant Mjolnir wielding a tiny Thor (definitely breaking the fourth wall there). But he’s also bummed that he got left out while Bruce “why am I always wearing cutoffs?” Banner had Tony Stark blowing up his phone.
Thor: Ragnarok comes to theaters November 3, 2017—plenty of time for Mjolnir to rest up.
