Earlier today, we reported that Monster director Patty Jenkins may helm Thor 2 for Marvel Studios. While it still isn't clear if she is locked in for the job yet, some new details on the superhero sequel have emerged from Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. Take a look at what he had to say below, which indicates that Chris Hemsworth's title character will be going beyond the realms of Earth and Asgard.
Thor 2 will explore other worlds and Thor's relationship with Jane Foster
"(The sequel will) take Thor literally to other worlds. (Thor 2 will) primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and how the new dynamic with his father (Odin, played by Anthony Hopkins) is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
There hasn't been official confirmation yet that Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins will reprise their roles from Thor, although that seems to be the case. Don Payne is writing the screenplay for Thor 2. There has been no indication on when production may start. Marvel Studios has locked in a July 26, 2013 release date for the sequel.
Thor: The Dark World comes to theaters November 8th, 2013 and stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Ray Stevenson, Kat Dennings, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston. The film is directed by Alan Taylor.
