When Daryl Met The Grandmaster: The Return Of The Marvel One-Shot?
In what appears to be an unnamed revival of the Marvel One-Shot, a member of "Team Thor" ends up sharing a breakfast table with former overlord of Sakaar. It's the new "Odd Couple" and I want more of it.
This latest bonus feature from the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok Blu-ray, features the God of Thunder's former flatmate relocating to America and as fate would have it, he ends up living with The Grandmaster. If you're a fan of Daryl's previous adventures with Thor in Australia, you're sure to enjoy his chemistry with one of the most charming beings in the universe.
Like I said, it's delightful. Even if it is only just over a minute long. I'm hoping the shenanigans these two get up to are continued in a second short. Which, if you're paying attention, is exactly what they did with Thor and Daryl.
The real questions is, do these Thor shorts mark an unofficial return of the Marvel One-Shot? The Marvel One-Shots were fun little films, which were included in a few Blu-Ray releases of some of the previous Marvel movies. Curiously, there haven't been any since Phase 2 and in an odd twist, the last official One-Shot was included on the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray release.
Let's hope the popularity of these Thor-centric shorts rekindle Marvel's interest in doing more for other parts of the MCU. Otherwise, I'll gladly accept any and all unofficial One-Shots with Thor and or Daryl. Mostly Daryl.
All apologies to Odinson.
