If I recall, Thor 2 will be out for Thanksgiving 2013. I think it shoots later this summer.
Thanks, the only thing I'd heard was a rumour of spring 2014 some weeks back.

They pushed it to November to avoid competition with The Lone Ranger. Thor fears no Frost Giants or Chitauri but he runs, scared shitless from the box office power of Johnny Depp.

Does this movie have a director yet? I had heard that Branaugh was not going to be back.

I much preferred the Asgard portions of Thor. I hope somehow Kat Dennings' character makes her way to Asgard as well.
I doubt it seeing as she'll be busy filming the second season of 2 Broke Girls. Unless they can nab her for a small cameo.
Well, Cobie Smulders got away from her CBS comedy to film The Avengers and Jason Segal has found time to write and star in movies while still acting on How I Met Your Mother, so I'm sure Dennings could find the time if they needed her.

Not real important though, as I'm sure the movie will do just fine without her.

But Hemsworth mentioned that filming will begin in August, and that's when they usually start filming new episodes for a September premiere. Avengers began filming an April when it's over and Segel shoots his movies during the summer months.

But I agree, she's not important, I actually found her character annoying in the movie.

I can't say I am familiar with him. But I did see that he directed a couple of episodes of Game of Thrones so that is good to know.

Not necessarily. Scheduling is different for all shows, and the window of time between writing/shooting/completing episodes
and when they are finally broadcast can vary even more so. It is entirely possible that Dennings could still appear in the film with as large as or larger a part as she had in Thor 2. It will all depend on scheduling.

And if this movie does indeed take place primarily in Asgard it's good that we have a director who is familiar with that kind of setting.

Though I am bummed Branaugh is'nt coming back, I do like him as a director.

I was very bummed to hear Kenneth Branagh wasn't coming back to direct Thor 2. I believe he was largely attributable to the film's success. I am unfamiliar with Alan Taylor, so I'll withhold judgement.

Re: Thor 2 -Movie Discussion, News, Interviews, Pics till release 2013

Digging around trying to find any bit of news I haven' read yet about this film, I came across this from Hemsworth:

"Alan Taylor, one of the directors and creators of Game Of Thrones, is directing it. What I love about that series is the mythical element to it, but that world that they lived in was entirely tangible and organic. It was all real locations, not green screen. I think Thor and Asgard could use that. That would be a huge plus, to not have worlds that are too clinical and ethereal, and have places that look like they have existed for thousands of years. I think this would be more locations and less green screen."

Not making it a Summer release is an odd choice.

Bulk of it taking place in Asgard I'm not sure on either, but I guess we'll see how things go over the next couple of years.

Alternating between summer and winter never hurt Harry Potter any.

Well the movie does start filming in August, so perhaps we'll find more out then. Unless they keep this movie under wraps, which is possible.

They could set the story in Bumfuck, Australia as far as I'm concerned, so long as they finally give Thor a helmet that he wears for most of the damn movie.

I get that the original prop wasn't designed or meant for action work (hence why it didn't show up in The Avengers), but god damn, GIVE THOR HIS HELMET.
