The mighty Thor is back! Well, not quite back. In some ways, yes, he is back in the upcoming The Avengers. But what we’re trying to say is one of our favorite superheroes from summer 2011 is set to return on a solo mission.
The sequel to the highly successful Thor has been given a release date of July 2013.
Marvel Studios and Disney have announced that Chris Hemsworth and his badass alter ego Thor are going right from the Avengers in 2012 to their own follow-up story the following summer.
Unfortunately the man who brought the Shakespearean touch to the first Thor, director Kenneth Branagh, will not be returning to direct Thor 2. Not to worry, both sides broke up amicably. To quote Thor, "I swear!"
So there is no director to speak of, as yet, and no writers have been hired to write a script. But, we do have a release date which means one thing: Somebody has a lot of work to do. We, for one, cannot wait to see where this summer’s surprise smash finds itself in the future.
