By DCMarvelFreshman - 1/29/2014
With production on The Avengers sequel and Ant-Man gearing up for this summer, Marvel Studios is actively mapping out the next installments to "Phase Three" of the shared cinematic universe. Following yesterday's big news that Captain America 3 will get a familiar pair of directors, now comes official word that a familiar pair of writers have been tapped for another Thor sequel.

Frequent Marvel Comics writers Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost, who served as an executive producer and a co-writer on last year's Thor: The Dark World, respectively, will pen the screenplay for Chris Hemworth's third solo outing as the God of Thunder. “I am proud of Craig and have enjoyed working with him over these past years,” stated Kevin Feige. “His creative instincts have helped shape Thor and Thor: The Dark World at every level of the filmmaking process. The entire team at Marvel is very happy to continue collaborating with Craig as he continues as a screenwriter working with Christopher on the forthcoming chapter of Thor’s adventure.”

While he co-wrote many X-Men comics, Craig Kyle initially served as the Creative Executive for Marvel's animation division which involved him overseeing the development of many direct-to-DVD movies including Ultimate Avengers, Hulk Vs, Planet Hulk and Thor: Tales of Asgard. He was also an executive producer on the first Thor movie back in 2011. Anyhow, there're obviously no plot details or even a director attached for this third Thor movie, but both Craig Kyle and Hemsworth have teased that the Ragnarok storyline could serve as a follow-up to Thor: The Dark World. This would evidently make the Fire Demons of Muspelheim and their leader Surtur the next primary villains. Hopefully Thor 3 will exclude misadventures on Midgard this time around. What do you think?

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!,cool,i liked both thor films( the first one more then the second one) anyway cool,i know feige has said that he wants the forumal of release to be one unknown property and one known property,they are doing that with cap and guardians this year,avengers age of ultron and ant man next year,so my phase 3 predicted movies are dr strange ,cap 3, black panther,thor 3 and avengers 3

2nd one was pretty good when compared to the 1st but i really don't need another thor movie. Rather see some other characters get a shot
GizmoEl - 1/29/2014, 4:32 PM
Yesss, Thor deserves a third movie. Actually I would love to see a lot more than just a trilogy because those characters are fantastic
Cool I guess, but I'm guessing more Loki and Darcy Scenes.
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:32 PM
Blackjack Ron swanson and no stache,tell me it aint so!!
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:34 PM
Mexicansuperman-loki is gonna be in it cause almost every thor story has loki and those two characters compliment each other, plus (SPOILERS) ......... Loki being disguised as odin and now on the throne is gonna be interesting,darcy i could do without but she is most likely gonna be in it....
TheRealRemyLebeau - 1/29/2014, 4:35 PM
Hey DCMF there are reports that actress Kim Soo-hyun has been cast in avengers 2 possibly as a doctor aiding tony stark or a villain. Speculations from some fans are moondragon and Lady Hydra. According to KDrama stars and Kpopstarz. ;)
I hope Thor becomes king in Thor 3, and that ends in a bang like Ironman 3.
JJJameson - 1/29/2014, 4:36 PM
Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost are the Marvel equivalent of Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. This is the best news that the next Thor film could have.

Excited as [frick] for this, bring it!!
Marvel1997 - 1/29/2014, 4:36 PM
YES! LONG LIVE THE MCU! It's just non stop from these guys.. Also Kevin guess what? Now is your chance to bring in Sutur, Betta Ray Bill, Enchantress and Executioner!! This Thor film can be pretty bad ass and epic on scale. While I liked the 2nd one.. It didn't feel like that much was at stake even though there was.. But make this happen!
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:37 PM
i hope this one takes place fully in asgard and other realms
GizmoEl - 1/29/2014, 4:38 PM
I'm hoping for Enchantress and Executioner. Or Surtur
Marvel1997 - 1/29/2014, 4:38 PM
Makes sense because **SPOILERS** which you should have [frick]ing seen the movie by now*** we need to find out what the hell happened to the real Odin and what Thor's REACTION will be once he finds out Loki is still alive!
Marvel1997 - 1/29/2014, 4:39 PM
I second @ezio's comment
Jollem - 1/29/2014, 4:40 PM
less twilight, fabio thor, more beast-god thor
AvengingWolverine - 1/29/2014, 4:40 PM
I mean, we all knew this was happening after Thor 2's ending.
Marvel1997 - 1/29/2014, 4:41 PM
Isn't one of the Asgardians that is appearing in Agents of Shield Enchantress' sister?
@ezio619, Tom Hiddleston is great as Loki, but I'm just tried of him. I would like Loki to sacrifice himself to save Thor.
DrDoom - 1/29/2014, 4:42 PM
Chris Yost is one of the most talented writers in the business. Working with Craig Kyle?

Make it happen.
McNyagano - 1/29/2014, 4:43 PM


Thor 3 better be Ragnok and have Enchantress in it!!
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:44 PM
Mexicansuperman-dude i would have agreed with u after avengers,i didnt really get the hype back then on him, like,iliked him and tom was great but he just didnt fully do it for me but i dont know what happened but i loved lOKi in thor the dark world and that has reinvograted my interest in that character
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:44 PM
Blackjack- i will not worry and be happy if cap,guardians ,psidey and xmen are good movies
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:45 PM
plus didnt craig kyle and chris yost wirte an x force run that people love?
CaptainObvious - 1/29/2014, 4:47 PM
Let's hope they write an interesting villain.
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:47 PM
captainobvious-yeah besides the whole darcy earth track,i thought malekith was weak villain in terms of character, those were my two big problems with the film
McNyagano - 1/29/2014, 4:47 PM


Anyone?:D
TheRealRemyLebeau - 1/29/2014, 4:47 PM
Loved Thor the dark world. Thought it was the best solo mcu film. Glad its moving forward. This has harry potter potential in sequels. 2016 must be a Thor sequel and Dr. Strange 2017 must be captain America 3 and Black Panther. 2018 will be Avengers 3 and Inhumans

Phase 3:
Ant Man
Thor 3
Dr.Strange
Captain America 3
Black Panther
Avengers 3

Options: Phase 3

Inhumans
Ms. Marvel
marvel72 - 1/29/2014, 4:48 PM
after thor the dark world cliffhanger ending we need a third outing as soon as.
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:49 PM
i know this character is quite recent but he quickly became beloved, how about Gorr The God Butcher as the villain in the third film?
JordanKing - 1/29/2014, 4:49 PM
:MexicanSuperman Loki already did that when they were fighting Kurse.
WhiteBolt - 1/29/2014, 4:50 PM
Ragnarok is coming, bitches!
RichardBoldly - 1/29/2014, 4:51 PM
What about Sir Alan Taylor?

I didn't even seen The Dark World, but the Game of Thrones episodes directed by Alan Taylor have some of the best photography of the entire series.

Oh, [frick].....

I just realised Fox hired him already for Terminator: Genesis.

Then suck it, Mr. Feige.
ALmight - 1/29/2014, 4:53 PM
More Loki please

ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:53 PM
Feige wants to do two movies a year for now,he wants one to be aknown property and one unknown property,like with cap andguardians this year, avengers 2 and ant man next yearso my predicted phase 3 ,2016-2017 films are

Dr Strange

Thor 3

Cap 3

Black Panther

Avengers 3
TheRealRemyLebeau - 1/29/2014, 4:53 PM
I kind of feel that Ragnorok should be saved unless hemsworth is done with the role. Thor films can go on for like 6 total films with this current cast.
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:53 PM
Almight-man tom has moves!!
frova - 1/29/2014, 4:53 PM
I have a feeling they're not going to ask Alan Taylor back
ALmight - 1/29/2014, 4:54 PM
@ezio- oh yes he does

Tom Hiddelson Thor Audition
ezio619 - 1/29/2014, 4:55 PM
