Can the world handle another dosage of the God of Thunder? Well, it better get ready as Thor 2 has gotten a release date.
While the first Thor film didn’t exactly burn up the box office compared to some of the other movies out there, that isn’t stopping Disney/Marvel from getting ready to release a sequel. The film will hit screens on July 26, 2013, only about two months after Iron Man 3 hits on May 3, 2013.
Chris Hemsworth will be returning to the title role, but Director Kenneth Branaghwill not be back for the second film. Reportedly his departure is not born out of any issues between him and the studio, but rather was a mutually agreed upon decision and was amicable on both parts.
No word on details such as a new director yet or if the script has even be started as of yet.
With the last few films building towards The Avengers coming out next year, I wonder if we’re now building towards The Avengers 2 by using solo movies to build things up again. Obviously there is a master plan afoot here, we just don’t know what it is as of yet.
