According to Deadline Marvel and distributor Disney have yet to pick a date; however Marvel Studios’ release pattern whenever they have ad 2 films in oone year has been one at the beginning of May (Iron Man in 2008 and Tor in 2011) followed by another tat same summer (13/6/08 for The Incredible Hulk and 22/7/11 for Captain America) It seems likely that the same will happen here.

According to the Deadline exclusive the new film comes too soon for the return of Kenneth Branagh (It doesn’t state that as a reason he can’t return but the director has several options ahead of him) It does state that Branagh is likely to remain as a producer. Marvel Studios had been saying they wouldn't announce any new films until AFTER the Avengers was out, but with the film proving so popular (especially outside of North America) $436m & counting, it seems they felt able to break that ruling. It is also likely that Marvel Studios took steps to secure Hemsworth before his ever growing slate of films meant a sequel to Thor would take another 2 or 3 years to get going. As well as a high profile role as The Huntsman in next May’s Snow White & The Huntsman, Hemsworth has the starring role in Sony’s Black Ops thriller Shadow Runner; also from one of the writers of Snow White. With Red Dawn & Joss Whedon’s Cabin In The Woods also featuring in between his two #guaranteed’ hits The Avengers & Thor, it seems Chris Hemsworth is here to stay.

Of course with Hemsworth currently filming Marvel Studios’ The Avengers, this will mean the god of Thunder will be smiting evildoers for three summers in a row. Add in Snow White & The Huntsman and we’ll be seeing a lot of Mr Hemsworth. 

So who would you like to replace Shakespeare’s reincarnation as director? Guillermo del Toro all the way for me.
