Marvel Studio’s Thor will be returning to the big screen with a release date of July 26 2013. Chris Hemsworth seems likely to return as our hero, but it seems that Kenneth Branagh won’t be directing this time around. The rumours are however that he will return as producer. At this stage there is no real news on why he will not direct the sequel, only speculation.
Of course, the release date is great news for those Thor fans out there. We loved the movie at The All Action, No Plot Movie Blog, and it received generally positive reviews worldwide. Coupled with a current worldwide gross of over $437 million, I think the sequel has every chance of being a similar success.
Let’s just hope they can find a worthy successor to Branagh – one of my favourite actors and a fine director, I thought he did a great job! Any suggestions?
