You probably won’t be very surprised by this, but Marvel is definitely moving forward on a third “Thor” movie, as well as a third “Captain America” flick. Okay, so the third “Captain America” is a little surprising, given that the second film hasn’t opened yet. Then again, considering the buzz surrounding it, maybe it’s not really so “out there.”
As for “Thor 3,” Marvel isn’t just moving forward, they’ve set a pair of screenwriters to bang out a script, with Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle doing the duty. Yost is a long-time Marvel guy, and co-wrote “Thor: The Dark World.” Kyle, as well, has written many of Marvel’s animated ventures.
No word on what “Thor 3″ will be about, or when it’ll land on the schedule, but given the ending of “Thor: The Dark World,” a return to Earth for the superhero played by Chris Hemsworth would seem like a sure thing.
Meanwhile, Variety reports that a third “Captain America” movie is also moving forward, with the studio setting brother directors Anthony and Joe Russo to return after helming “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.”
So apparently Marvel was really, really satisfied with their work, which bodes well for the sequel.
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” opens this April 4th, and finds the good Captain (once again played by Chris Evans) teaming up with sidekicks The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and The Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) against an old enemy, the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Plus, political shenanigans rear their ugly heads to make our hero’s life just a little bit more difficult.
Take a gander at the trailer for it below:
