Darryl and Baby Mjolnir Retconned – Feel Free to Riot Now

Minor Thor: Ragnarok spoilers follow.

Screenrant recently took a wonder around the set of Taika Waititi’s Thor set and chatted with producer Brad Winderbaum about what Thor was actually up to during the events of Captain America: Civil War.

The journey he’s been on at the beginning of this movie, it’s not like five minutes after Ultron ends we start this movie: it’s a couple years later. And as we know, at the end of Ultron he’s started this quest to find the puppet master, and the Infinity Stones, and all that. What he realized really fast– I don’t think I’m giving too much away because it’s right at the top of the film, but basically that one quest, that universe-ending peril that he was trying to figure out dovetailed or branched off into any number of universe ending-perils that he’s been adventuring on for the two years leading up to the beginning of this film.

So, Infinity Stones, yadda-yadda, universe-ending peril. So…not sharing a flat with an uncomfortable looking office worker.

Winderbaum continues:

We find him as a lone gunslinger, you know, a guy who’s been adventuring around the cosmos for two years right at the top of our movie. He’s a more savvy version of the character. In Dark World he has trouble navigating that Dark Elf spaceship… but that’s the Thor of the past.

I’m sure Darryl will be fine though. He’s got a gazillion dollars worth of Asgardian coins to cover rent.



  • Let’s start a campaign to have Daryl show up in AoS as a guy who believes he’s roommates with Thor.

    I am actually glad that they embraced the comedic side of Thor. It makes him more interesting in my opinion.

    You know that was a great gag, but if there’s one thing that gives me pause about Ragnarok it’s the weirdly modern, fratboy take on Thor (I mean, in what world would Thor Odinson say something like ‘we’re friends from work’; it’s like a parody of the Office). So this officially not being cannon can only be a good thing.
