Comic-Con: 'Thor: Ragnarok' Director Reveals What Thor and Hulk Were Doing During 'Civil War'
Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi wondered what Thor was doing during the events of Marvel' last film, Captain America: Civil War. So, Waititi made a mockumentary that reveals Chris Hemsworth's demi-god's whereabouts while the other Avengers were bickering.
The footage, which debuted Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con, shows Thor getting a non-super roommate named Daryl, who he asks to write all of his email correspondence with Iron Man and Captain America.

Thor's bedroom is decorated with conspiracy boards about the Infinity Stone's whereabouts, and we also find out that the Norse god of thunder has a tiny bed for Mjolnir— his magical hammer of choice.
At one point Mark Ruffalo makes an appearance as the Bruce Banner, and he and Thor share a friendly cup of coffee.
Waititi is familiar with the mockumentary style, having helmed last year's What We Do in the Shadows — the vampire-focused satire.
Thor: Ragnarok will see the return of Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as everyone's favorite bickering Norse siblings. They will be joined by stars Jeff Goldblum and Tessa Thompson, who will play The Grandmaster and Valkyrie, respectively, as well as Cate Blanchett, who will take on the role of Hela.
Behind the scenes footage from the superhero standalone was also screened during the presentation, and a new logo for the film made its debut.
Thor: Ragnarok will hit theaters on November 3, 2017.
