We’ve heard that Marvel Studios is going straight ahead with a Thor sequel (your mileage my vary in regards to whether this is an unfortunate thing or not). We know that the screenplay for Thor 2 will be written by Don Payne, and the planned release date is July 26, 2013.
Professor Lockhart Kenneth Branagh will not be directing the sequel, the studio has been in talks with potential directors to pick up the story.
Word has it that Brian Kirk of Game of Thrones is one of those directors. Apparently one of the big appeals is the fact that he has lots of experience with large ensemble casts in TV.
We’ll see what happens! What do y’all think of Kirk possibly helming the Thor ship?
