The realities of mainstream film production as it compares to comic book storytelling means that it’s a lot more challenging logistically to have Thor hanging out/fighting with Captain America or Iron Man in a movie than it is in a comic. So naturally, even in a movie like Captain America: Civil War, not everybody makes it onscreen. That includes Thor, but a new comedy short called Team Thor provides a much more entertaining explanation for what he was doing while the events of that film took place.
Team Thor was first seen by attendees at this year’s Comic-Con, but Marvel has been kind enough to release it online so the general public can enjoy it. And this is just speculation, but the humorous, comedic tone of the short may also be a clue for what to expect from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, especially since it’s directed by Taika Waititi of What We Do in the Shadows.
You can watch Team Thor for yourself below. And for more from Thor: Ragnarok in advance of its November 2017 release date, check out the movie’s official site right here.
