Movie News: Jeff Goldblum Teases Future Marvel Short

Thor: Ragnarok

Marvel Short: Jeff Goldblum, who makes an appearance in the forthcoming Thor: Ragnarok as the Marvel character The Grandmaster (above), may soon be seen playing the character again for director Taika Waititi. Goldblum says: “I shot a thing with Taika [Waititi], where there’s a roommate in Australia … I take up residence in the little flat, as they say here. That’s what I do. And order things from the takeaway restaurant.” What Goldblum describes sounds like it may be a followup to a previous Marvel short, Team Thor. [Radio Times via THR]
