“Thor 2” gets a release date, loses a director

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The God of Thunder’s getting another shot at summer blockbuster glory.

Now that “Thor” has earned north of $430 million at the global box office, Disney and Marvel Studios have announced that a sequel, tentatively titled “Thor 2,” will open in theaters on July 26, 2013, according to Deadline. It will be the second Marvel Studios live-action film in theaters that summer, as Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3” right now has a May 3, 2013 release date, so the summer will mirror this summer’s release pattern of a Marvel movie in theaters in May and July.

It’s being reported that Chris Hemsworth will return to the role, but surprisingly, “Thor” director Kenneth Branagh will not. THR says there were “talks” between the studio and the director, who had an option to direct a “Thor” sequel, but a “mutual parting of ways” occurred.

It’s way too early to begin speculating which direction a “Thor” sequel would head. But the character will be a big part of Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers,” which kicks off Summer 2012 with a May 4 release date.
