Don't Worry, Thor's Roommate Made It Through Avengers: Infinity War
The Marvel everyman is doing just fine.
One more survivor of Avengers: Infinity War has been confirmed. In a brief new video, Thor's roommate Darryl wishes the god of thunder a happy birthday and updates him on what he's been up to since Thanos came to earth. Spoilers for Infinity War follow.
Darryl was originally featured in a series of shorts alongside Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to explain why the powerful demi-god was missing-in-action during Captain America: Civil War. He was apparently trying to live out a normal life, taking up in an Australian apartment with an average guy. The resulting odd couple made for some hilarious misadventures, but his fate was in question in light of Thanos' magical finger-snap wiping out half the population of the universe.
Fear not, though, Darryl fans. In a new short, Darryl is alive and well and wishing his buddy Thor a happy belated birthday. (Actor Chris Hemsworth's birthday is August 11, and Darryl's video was released on August 12). And though he survived, many of his fellow office workers didn't, so now he has to work on Sundays.
It's a lighthearted way to deal with a movie that was shockingly dark, having ended with half of the universe--including many of our own heroes like Spider-Man and Black Panther--being wiped out in an instant. The movie had its share of funny moments, including some that were cut out, but it certainly ended on a dour note. Help is on the way, but we'll have to wait until next April to see how it all resolves.
