This can only be good news for Thor. Now granted it'll still need to show via previews, still photos etc that its worth lining up for but that release slot is a proven winner for Marvel movies. I recall Spidey, Iron Man and the X-Men films opening there and all doing well. Thor is likely to at least get butts in seat based on the public now being very familiar with the Marvel brand.
I thought Chris Hemsworth was good as George Kirk in STXI. There really hasn't been any real fantasy superhero movies released so I can see Thor taking off with the public like Iron Man did two years ago.
