Thor: The Dark World is edging ever closer to release and Thor and Loki, the two adopted brothers, are squaring up to face each other once more. The two men are about as close to chalk and cheese as you can get – Thor is all brute force and straight talking while Loki ducks and dives and manipulates.

All families have a black sheep and it’s good to know that even the gods are no exception. If you ever had any doubt of that, however, check out some of these families who boast the worst brothers you can think of.

5. Brennan & Dale – Step Brothers

It’s hard to pick out which is the worst brother in this comedy by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.

Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell) and Dale Doback (John C Reilly) are both unemployed and middle aged, living with their parents. Neither wants to move out or find a job and why should they when their parents are happy to support them? However, when Brennan’s mother Nancy (Mary Steenburgen) and Dale’s father Robert (Richard Jenkins) fall in love and get married, Brennan and Dale find themselves lumbered with a step brother they neither want nor like.

However, sick of the fighting, their parents issue them with an ultimatum – find jobs within a month or move out. Gradually the pair discover that they have a lot in common and develop a close connection, but they still need to find work or they’ll be out on their ear.

The team behind Step Brothers also worked together on Talladega Nights and although Step Brothers wasn’t quite as popular, it’s still good fun. Adam McKay hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a sequel, perhaps with Brennan or Dale married and finally mature only for something to happen to set them back again. There’s no definite date yet, but with Anchorman 2 on its way, there’ll be plenty to laugh at in the meantime.
