With the success of Thor, we figured it was only a matter of time before we heard about the future of a sequel for the God of Thunder. Deadline Hollywood reported yesterday that Marvel Studios has decided to move forward with Thor 2. While Chris Hemsworth will return, director Kenneth Branagh won’t. Branagh left on ‘mutual and amicable’ terms and might serve the project in a producer role. The writers for the seqeul have yet to be named and after the news broke, Ashley Miller posted on Twitter about his and Zack Stentz future with the project saying:
For the record, we know jack-diddly about what’s happening with the thunder god right now. And if we did, we wouldn’t be able to say.
While the future for the creative forces behind the first film are in flux, I’m quite glad to hear we’ll be spending more time with the Asgardians. 2013 already looks to be a busy year for Marvel Studios, Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3 will open on May 3, 2013.
