‘Thor: The Dark World’ breezed past the first ‘Thor’ movie in terms of box office sales, thanks no doubt to the character’s elevated awareness thanks from ‘The Avengers‘ … well, and Loki. Since Tom Hiddleston won’t be reprising that role in ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron‘, it only makes sense that Marvel would green light a third ‘Thor’ which hopefully will bring Loki back into the cinematic universe.
In a step forward, Marvel has hired animation veterans Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle to pen the script to the next ‘Thor’ movie. The pair worked together on the brilliant animated series ‘X-Men: Evolution’ and have worked closely with Marvel ever since, collectively working on ‘Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes’, ‘Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow’, ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’, ‘Iron Man: Armored Adventures’, ‘Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes‘, ‘Ultimate Avengers’ and ‘Ultimate Avengers 2’, ‘The Invincible Iron Man’, ‘Doctor Strange’ and ‘The Spectacular Spider-Man’. In addition to these Marvel projects, Yost has written for ‘The Batman’ and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’. Yost also contributed to the script of ‘Thor: The Dark World’, while Kyle served as co-producer on ‘Thor’ and executive producer on ‘Thor: The Dark World’.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated:
“I am proud of Craig and have enjoyed working with him over these past years. 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.”
Obviously, they haven’t started writing yet, so there’s no news as far as the plot, but we can assume that ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ may influence the resulting films. Chris Hemsworth is signed on for an additional film, but here’s hoping that the majority of the principle cast including Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston will be free to return as well.
Personally, while there are some misses on their resumes, there are also some big wins like ‘X-Men: Evolution’ and ‘Wolverine & The X-Men’. What do you think they might bring to the big screen?
