Thor will definitely be heading back to the big screen for a second solo outing after The Avengers .
Marvel and Disney have announced that Thor 2 has been given a release date of 26 July 2013 (for the US – no word on the UK yet).
That means that Thor 2 will take its bow just two months after Iron Man rolls out his third solo feature film, with Iron Man 3 due 3 May 2013.
Though Thor ’s early trailers generally generated shrugs around the Total Film office, the film itself surprised us with its rich storyline and well-placed humour.
The film’s now grabbed $437m in worldwide ticket sales, which justifies Marvel’s decision to turn the film into its own mini-franchise (at least at the business end).
Sadly, one of Thor ’s pivotal figures won’t return for Thor 2 – director Kenneth Branagh is only sticking around in a producing capacity. Shame.
