What has the hammer-wielding Nordic god Thor up to while the rest of the Avengers were battling each other in “Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War”?
Walt Disney Studios gives superhero fans a look into the mythological marvel (pun intended) during his off hours in this bonus feature “Team Thor,” in which Thor takes time off as a “regular guy” in modern day Australia. That means a roommate, a visit to a kindergarten class and a lesson or two about “electronic letters.”

The goofy featurette was first shown to Comic-Con attendees who managed to make it into Marvel’s big presentation in Hall H in July.
“Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi has a brilliant idea on how to make the upcoming Marvel sequel even funnier: Add more jokes.
“I’ll take the second film and just add some jokes to that,” Waititi told TheWrap’s Jeff Sneider.
Plot details are scarce for “Ragnarok,” but it will feature Thor (Hemsworth) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), a.k.a. The Incredible Hulk, working closely together, no doubt trying to stop the end of at least one world.
The returning cast for the film includes Hiddleston as Loki, Jaimie Alexander as Sif, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, and Idris Elba as Heimdall. New cast members include Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, and Karl Urban.
“Thor: Ragnarok” is set to premiere in theaters on Nov. 3, 2017.
