The cast of Thor: Ragnarok is already off-the-charts outstanding. Not only are Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston returning as Thor and Loki respectively, but Sir Anthony Hopkins is back as Odin (as we’ve never seen him before), Mark Ruffalo has a sizeable role as Hulk, Tessa Thompson joins the franchise as Valkyrie, and Karl Urban has the role of Skurge. In addition, Cate Blanchett is playing Marvel’s first female villain Hela and Jeff Goldblum is playing the Marvel Comics character known as The Grandmaster. There might even be a cameo from Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. But there’s more.

Now it seems there’s a chance we might see Thor’s roommate Darryl (played by Daley Pearson) appear again in the Marvel cinematic universe, and Taika Waititi teases that the short may be hinting at something bigger on the horizon. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »
