Apparently, Marvel Studios will reveal the title of the upcoming Thor sequel today during the Iron Man 3 panel, along with some possible early footage featuring visual effects reel. More after the jump...

And so it begins... With today's Iron Man 3 panel at San Diego Comic Con, Marvel Studios will reveal much more about their upcoming projects. Now, IGN has exclusively revealed that the full title for Thor sequel might be Thor: The Darkest World. Report also says this:

"The title will be revealed during today's Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con panel in Hall H. We hear there may even be some footage from the film shown. (We'd imagine it might be visual effects/proof of concept-type stuff.) Want even more cool Marvel movie news? That Ant-Man footage that Edgar Wright recently shot will be shown to the fans, according to our sources."

Stay tuned for much more Comic-Con news, as well as a full report about this and Iron Man 3 in a couple of hours.

Exploring Thor's relationship with the Asgardian all-father Odin, as well earthbound companion Jane Foster, “Thor 2” follows the God of Thunder to other worlds beyond Asgard and earth. With the Warriors Three tagging along, among other Asgardian warriors, more mythical Norse creatures are expected. “Thor 2” stars Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jaimie Alexander, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano, and Ray Stevenson. Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones”) takes over directorial duties from Kenneth Branagh, who helmed the first “Thor” film. And “Thor 2” hits theaters November 8th, 2013.

Wow, that's a pretty weak title. At least it isn't Thor 2 anymore.

DioFoRio - 7/14/2012, 1:37 PM

DioFoRio - 7/14/2012, 1:38 PM
Hope marvel just continues these movies when I'm old with new actors and no reboots

Well, I don't think they've shot any of Thor 2 yet, so they probably won't show any Thor footage. But I can bet on them showing some Iron Man 3 footage, plus the Ant-Man screen test.

what a stupid title
Jaspion - 7/14/2012, 1:49 PM

OhGawDuhhh - 7/14/2012, 1:53 PM
THE DARKEST WORLD.. sounds Star Wars-y!

Whoo! I am so excited that MCU Phase 2 is in full swing.

This makes me so warm and happy inside!!!!!

I hate when move sequels get numbered, Spider-man 2, Ironman 3 etc. no originality behind it, so this is a good thing with the Thor title change.
Talontd - 7/14/2012, 1:55 PM
Thor II - The Nine Realms
Tony93 - 7/14/2012, 1:55 PM
When will there be panels online on Youtube?
VicSage - 7/14/2012, 1:56 PM
I'm okay with the title. While THOR: GOD OF THUNDER would have been the better title.

The "in-thing" is for the second film to use the character's nickname as the title. Batman Begins > The Dark Knight. If Superman Return had gotten a sequel, it would have been THE MAN OF STEEL. Amazing Spider-Man I'm sure will follow suit with SPECTACULAR SPIDERMAN as Hulk was followed by THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Funny.

If they want to keep with this 'Darkest World' thing. Remove the 'THE'. Saying 'THE' right after Thor sounds repetitive.

Thor: Darkest World sounds better.

Thor II - Adventures in Alfheim
95 - 7/14/2012, 1:57 PM
I like it. Big news today!
ScottPilgrim - 7/14/2012, 1:58 PM
1 Thor
2 The Mighty Thor <- Executioner + Enchartress
3 Thor: Son Of Asgard <- Beta Ray Bill
4 Thor: God Of Thunder <- Hera + the events of Ragnarok
Talontd - 7/14/2012, 1:58 PM
Thor II - Journey to Jotunheim
kingshnake - 7/14/2012, 1:58 PM
LOL @Jaspion
Thor 2:Beer Pong
DTor91 - 7/14/2012, 2:00 PM
Thor 2 would be better. It's simple, and you know what it is. No one complained with Iron Man 2 and now 3, and all of the previous numbered titles in movie history. What's different now? I hate corny subtitles. I don't take them seriously. That was one thing I didn't like about Captain America: The First Avenger. Simply Captain America or The First Avenger would have sufficed.
superotherside - 7/14/2012, 2:01 PM
I like the title. I wonder what its meaning is... also bring on the Ant-Man footage. Better release it online too though.
BrowniesExplode - 7/14/2012, 2:04 PM
I get why they would can it this odin summoned that dark magic from someone but who. Because who ever it is will make asgard dark
Tainted87 - 7/14/2012, 2:05 PM
Sounds plot oriented - definitely the right direction for Thor.

I love that picture from the Avengers. Kills the Highlander pose.
Tainted87 - 7/14/2012, 2:06 PM
Probably the Dark Elves.
Gyasiman - 7/14/2012, 2:08 PM
Sounds more like a video game title to me
CoolantTech - 7/14/2012, 2:09 PM
I know there damn well better be lot viking sorccery magic and killing, and none of that watered down earth action shit that was in the first movie you know, they gotta live up to the title.
BrowniesExplode - 7/14/2012, 2:10 PM
@tainted87 probably and @85 lets see maybe thanos will intervene i just thor will be darker
musashi - 7/14/2012, 2:12 PM
I prefer a title. It sounds better than Thor 2.
musashi - 7/14/2012, 2:12 PM
