Marvel Studios is moving ahead with a sequel to this summer’s Thor movie, according to Deadline. Though this doesn’t come as a shock, it is interesting to note that it did take the studio a bit longer to announce the news. Chris Hemsworth will return, but sadly Kenneth Branagh doesn’t look like he’ll return to the director’s chair.
The release date is still pending, but it looks like summer 2013 is the current target range.
UPDATE: We’ve now learned that Thor 2 will arrives July 26, 2013.
