Thor 3 pressing ahead, writers hired

News Simon Brew 30 Jan 2014 - 06:31

Writers have been hired by Marvel for the follow-up to Thor: The Dark World...

Just over a day since we heard that Marvel was already at work on Captain America 3 - you can read that story here - comes the news that Thor 3 is already in the works as well. It's not the most surprising story of the year, as around the release of Thor: The Dark World there was already chatter of a further sequel. Furthermore, Thor 2 went on to outgross its predecessor by nearly $200m at the worldwide box office.

Marvel itself has broken the news that not only is Thor 3 happening, but it's also got a pair of screenwriters on board. The new film is set to be penned by Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost. Kyle was one of the producers of Thor: The Dark World, whilst Yost co-penned the script for it.

That's three of Marvel's phase three movies pretty much confirmed then. Ant-Man is the first, Captain America 3 is coming, and now Thor 3 is in place. We just need the confirmation of Doctor Strange, and we'll have the set (given that they'll lead up to the already-confirmed The Avengers 3).

We would imagine that Thor 3 will be a 2016 release, but don't hold us to that. Here's the full story over at Marvel.

Still no Hulk movie! SMAAAASHHHH!!!

I would like to see them make another Hulk film, However i wasn't overly impressed with the last two attempts

Gotg 2 and strange will fill the last 2 slots, I'd wager.

can we please have a Captain Marvel film? getting to be a bit of a sausage fest. Or hey, here's an idea - Budapest. I don't know a single person who doesn't want to see Natasha and Clint and the op that went very, very badly...

I thought Ant-Man was technically a Phase 2 movie I swear Marvel have previously referred to it as such despite it coming out after Avengers: Age of Ultron

I really want a Captain Marvel movie, it would be a great way to introduce the Kree and Carol is one of my favourite characters in the comics.

Are you saying that the Thor-Jane Foster (forced) romance isn't enough? :-O

They burnt their hands on the last 2. I think Marvel could be waiting to see the response to GotG before they experiment with another Hulk movie.

That would be an interesting superhero movie. A Black Widow and HawkEye movie where everything that can go wrong will go wrong with no happy ending. That would be a bold move!

Marvel doesn't have the Kree or Skrull movie rights I believe, that why we got the 'Ultimate' version of them, the Chitauri, in The Avengers. They are included with the rights to the Fantastic 4 and that one of the reasons I want the Fox reboot to crash and burn before filming so we can have them in the MCU.

Oh, and Yvonne Strahovski for Ms. Marvel!

Nope, every Phase is concluded with an Avengers movie, meaning 'Ant-Man' will be the first Phase 3 outing.

sure Thor 3 is big news, but what we're waiting on is Thor Four: For Forfar!

What I'm still wondering is that if the MCU is in sort of real time to our world that there hasn't been any word on what Thor is doing now and what happend to that Londen roaming Yotenbeast.

As much as I want to see the resolution of the end of Dark World, I find myself a little disappointed. I assume they're doing trilogies for the main characters, but I want to see more standalone films. Ms/Captain Marvel for example. Also it has been hinted that Black Panther and Namor exist in the universe, and confirmed that a Black Panther film is being worked on.

Iron Man 3 is set around Christmas 2012, after the events of 'The Avengers' in the Summer. Episodes 1-7 of 'Agents of SHIELD' are set after 'Iron Man 3'. Episode 8 takes place very soon after 'Thor: The Dark World', so episode 8 onwards are set after 'Thor: The Dark World' with the rest of the series leading into and perhaps setting up 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'. Avengers 2 will then follow this. Guardians of the Galaxy is a bit more ambiguous since it's set away from Earth but I guess it's after Thor 2 judging by the mid-credit scene in that film.

I guess Thor is hanging out in London with Jane. No idea about the Yotenbeast though...

So is it?;

Avengers 2
Ant-Man
Thor 3
Cap 2
Dr Strange
Avengers 3

My only concern is that it's called "Thor 3" and not "Loki"

I think we'll get another film in there too; with Ant-Man out in 2015, assuming there'll be two a year (and that Avengers 3 will be the first in 2018, three years after its predecessor), there should be 4 more in between, 2 each for 2016 and 2017. We've got Thor 3, Captain America 3 and Doctor Strange expected, that leaves one more. I think that spot will be Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Ms Marvel, or Black Panther, or juuuuuuust possibly Iron Man 4 ($1.2 billion is hard to ignore).

What you told me I'm very well aware of, but thanks. What I really am wondering is what Thor is up to and where the Yotenbeast ended up. I mean that would be something SHIELD should take care of (or they handed it over to UNIT or Torchwood ;-) ). Also in Agents of SHIELD it seems like SHIELD or at least Coulson isn't keeping his resurrection a secret to at least Thor. I'm wondering how that will play out.

For real? Hmm, maybe it's like with Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.

I think these two link to Kree;

Ronan The Accuser (in the comics part of the alien Kree race and a member of the Accuser Corps, the Kree equivalent of military governors and jurists)

Korath the Pursuer (in the comics a Kree agent who was a member of a supervillain team called Starforce and an ally of Ronan the Accuser);

nope. Katee Sackhoff. Who would be really good in the air force *and* alcoholic parts.

Yep, but at the whole it's (without tie in comics, games and the horrible Heroes United direct-to-video)....

Phase 1
- Iron Man
- The Incredible Hulk
- Iron Man 2
- One-shot: The Consultant
- One-shot: A Funny Thing Happend on the Way To Thor's Hammer

No thank you. I don't get the fuss with Katee Sackhoff, just like with Felicia Day.

Yep but this is the more correct order for Phase 1 & 2;

- Agents of SHIELD s01e08-22
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Ah yes, the timeline watchlist. I rather go with the chronologic watchlist, because that's the same list Marvel released the movie and because they seem to have a plan it sounds more logic to me. Also, Captain America directly flows over in The Avengers.

No, I prefer to do my list (chronological order rather than release date order) as it's just more logical to me. Cap happens during WW2, Agent Carter follows on from that etc. Makes sense to view them as they occur.

Ideally I'd like an epic supercut; start with the Thor3 prologue, then the Thor2 flashback to Frost Giants, then Cap (without the modern day bookends), the Agent Carter etc etc...

I am surprised Thor 2 made more money than the original. It was pretty awful. Such a dull first 30 minutes.
