Superheroes — both the fictional and real-life variety — definitely get things done and are celebrated by the masses for their gallant efforts in keeping the peace. But at the same time, all those pats on the back won’t pay the bills.
This is what emerges when Thor has a hilarious catch up with his roommate Darryl Jacobson, who we met in the first Team Thor video. Back then, the hammer-wielding hero from Asgard, who we also know as Chris Hemsworth, explained, mockumentary style, that he needed a little “me” time. Living with “average, everyday guy” Jacobson gave him the stability he was so craving after saving the world in Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013).
But, now it’s rent time.
Jacobson has a talk with the Norse god about sorting out the bills. It turns out Thor idea of contributing financially is to throw down coins from his world, which are worth gazillions of human dollars… errr, that’s according to Thor. Unfortunately, the banks of Earth aren’t going to recognize the proposed exchange rate.
Jacobson politely suggests Thor get a proper, tangible job — with an income.
You can check out Thor’s reaction in the below:
We hope Thor enjoys his downtime living in a “flat” in Australia, because he’ll be called to duty soon enough with Thor: Ragnarok premiering later this year (November 3). He’ll reunite with his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins), his half-brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and the gatekeeper, Heimdall (Idris Elba). But there’s a new baddie in town, Hela, the Goddess of Death, played by Cate Blanchett.
We can also look for Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) in the third installment of the Thor franchise.
Speaking of the latter Marvel hero, concept art for Thor: Ragnarok has recently been released, featuring Thor and the Hulk. We find the two in a stadium, battling it out gladiator style:
But, back to the issue at hand: Thor needs the skills to pay the bills.
