Of all of the characters being launched to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thor: Ragnarok, Grandmaster is essentially the most eccentric of the bunch. Which is to be anticipated once you solid Jeff Goldblum. Because the ruler of the planet Sakaar, Goldblum’s Grandmaster serves as a facet antagonist in Thor: Ragnarok, forcing the God of Thunder to combat for his life in gladiatorial fight. However the third Thor film wasn’t the one materials Goldblum shot as Grandmaster. In the identical vein because the Workforce Thor mockumentary shorts, there is a quick movie floating round that includes Grandmaster hanging out together with his personal roommate. As Goldblum revealed:
I shot a factor with Taika, the place there is a roommate in Australia. I present up at his, and I do knock on his door. And I take up residence within the little flat, as they are saying right here. That is what I do. And order issues from the takeaway restaurant. Purchase all of the native meals.
For many who want a refresher, final 12 months throughout San Diego Comedian-Con, Marvel launched a comedic short that confirmed Thor hanging out in Australia and residing with an workplace employee named Darryl through the occasions of Captain America: Civil Battle. Team Thor Part 2 was connected to Physician Unusual’s house media launch earlier this 12 months, which was additionally directed by Taika Waititi, the person behind Thor: Ragnarok. Now we have realized from Jeff Goldblum that Waititi determined to offer Grandmaster a style of on a regular basis residing within the Land Down Underneath. Goldblum did not say in his interview with Radio Times if this quick movie will ever be launched, though this sounds likes a wonderful particular characteristic for Thor: Ragnarok‘s house launch subsequent 12 months.
Similar to the Workforce Thor shorts, we are able to moderately assume that this Grandmaster quick movie is not legitimately canon throughout the MCU. In spite of everything, why would that character wish to hand around in an Australian neighborhood when he has a complete planet to maintain him entertained? However from a purely comedic standpoint, seeing the colourful Elder of the Universe doing mundane actions like ordering takeout and watching the native information is one thing would absolutely be the stuff of legend. Okay, I is likely to be exaggerating, however nonetheless, here is hoping that Marvel ultimately releases this quick movie so we are able to see if he does a greater job of “adulting” than Thor did. However till that occurs, you possibly can sit up for seeing the MCU’s Grandmaster manipulate these beneath his rule in Thor: Ragnarok, which can embody forcing Thor to combat Sakaar’s reigning champion, the Incredible Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok will introduce Jeff Goldblum’s Grandmaster to the world when it is launched on November three.
