In the aftermath of Thanos’ snap at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, it has been mostly somber news as most of the characters in the movie end up dying. For the most part we know who survived and who died, though some characters remains unknown, but now you can add one more name to the list of survivors.
Thor’s Earthbound best friend, Darryl Jacobson, survived Thanos’ snap.
Darryl Jacobson himself, actor Daley Pearson, revealed the news via Twitter while wishing Thor a very happy birthday. However, it’s not all good news for Darryl. Most of his co-workers did not enjoy the same fate as he did and as a result he now has to work weekends in a lonely office. He also has “quite a bit of debt” so he requests some Asgardian money which is worth a lot on Earth.
I guess now would be a bad time to tell him what happened to Asgard at the end of Thor: Ragnarok.
In case Darryl’s name doesn’t ring any bells, he’s the person who kept Thor company when he went AWOL from the Avengers during the events of Captain America: Civil War. He appeared in the two mokumentaries called Team Thor as extensions of Thor: Ragnarok. They explained where exactly Thor was during the battle that tore the Avengers up and to everyone’s surprise, they were utterly hilarious. Turns out Thor is a terrible roommate. That same humor returns in Darryl’s update video.
Maybe this means Darryl will show up in Avengers 4.
