Marvel and Disney announce Thor 2 for 2013

Marvel Studios and Disney have announced that a sequel to “Thor” will be hammering into theatres July 26, 2013.

Kenneth Branagh will not be directing the sequel; the filmmaker had an option to direct the film but there was a ‘mutal parting of ways’ and as such someone else will be taking the reigns on the follow-up.

There’s no script in the works yet, let alone writers on the project, but what’s for certain is that Chris Hemsworth will be back as the hammer-wielding norse god. No word on Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgard, Kat Dennings or Tom Hiddelston.
