After getting an official release date, Thor 2 gets a writer

Jul. 1, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Earlier this week it was announced that THOR 2 was officially in the works at Marvel Studios and not looking to waste any time on development, today we have word that they've already hired a writer.

Don Payne, who was one of many credited writers on the first film as well as a writer on FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER, will get first crack at the script for the THOR sequel.

As previously reported, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston will be returning for the sequel but director Kenneth Branagh will not be. His departure is said to be amicable (i.e., he wanted to leave and they wanted him to leave) and Marvel will soon begin meeting with directors to help Payne shape the story.

Now speaking of the story, where do we go from here? The ending of THOR will presumably be wrapped up in the early stages of THE AVENGERS. Will there be more Jane Foster (please God say no...)? Is it too much to ask for to get some Enchantress love? If you're a big fan of THOR, where do you want to see this movie go?

More Asgard and the 9 realms, and less Earth bound stuff.

I'm not writing this off yet. But it's definitely not sounding too great as of these developments.

I have never read a Thor comic, but i did enjoy the first movie so if this is a bad idea just say so. Since Loki will obviously be defeated in The Avengers and it was announced he'd be in Thor 2, I think it would be cool to see him in a sort of Hannibal Lecter role. He would be imprisoned and Thor would talk to him and ask for help. Also, since the earth sections of Thor were by far the weakest point in the movie, they should avoid earth as much as possible and maybe even skip earth all

I kinda liked Thor for what it was. Sure the romance was forced but Natalie Portman's too big a star too pass on. I bet she has some cash drawing power in her as she's somewhat of a geek favourite if you trust sites like this. At least i hope she returns. Also, more Heimdall please!!

Loki is boring. He's the Lex Luther of Thor. How about some Thanos, Beta Ray, Gladiator, a real Galactus, Super Skrull,,something other than the safe boring stuff. Have some balls, Look what Nolan did with Ras, Bane and Scarecrow. Introduce some new names for once.

Interesting

I could have sworn that I had seen a few months ago that Branagh was saying that he would be interested in continuing...Did something happen or did he just change his mind?

Keep it SCIFI

They positioned Thor to be a great foot into the door of cosmic marvel. have him fight thanos or beta ray bill or something in space and it could be a great lead in to a guardians of the galaxy, adam warlock, or nova corps movie franchise.

Surtur with a dash of Loki and Mephisto. Add Enchantress to the mix and have Odin sleep his Odin sleep (as I'm sure Anthony Hopkins would most likely not come back as well).
And have Thor leave earth to visit the whole Lord Of The Ring shit: Dwarves, Elves, Trolls and Dragons.

And if you need a cameo from anoher Marvel hero cause it's a Marvel movie and they most likely would feel the need to do so: Hercules. Have Zeus send his son to help Thor on his quest (being manipulated by the

And if you need a cameo from anoher Marvel hero cause it's a Marvel movie and they most likely would feel the need to do so: Hercules. Have Zeus send his son to help Thor on his quest (being manipulated by the Enchantress cause Loki wants the sword) to find Surtur's sword.

Roll credits.

"Secret" after credit scene: Oh hey look it's Thanos and Fin Fang Foom (for some reason) heading towards earth for the Avengers 2. Thanos took the gauntlet while Thor and friends were busy fighting for Surtur's sword.

Honstly, Thor has one of the best rogues galery of any hero. So many great diretions they could head toward. Surtur, Enchantress & Executioner, Wrecking Crew, the real Absorbingman, Malekith or Ulik... Pick one and roll with it but don't overcrowd simply because you now have a large sandbox to play in.

Jane Foster will be back!

Portman signed on for sequels and just won an Oscar. And that means Earth, which to me is a good thing. If I want LOTR I watch one of those looooong movies. Set it mostly on Earth, but bring more crazy shit down here.

Too bad about Branagh, hope Marvel don't fuck it up.

As you all say; rather a fantasy/sci-fi film set in the other realms, than a earth story setting.
