Are you ready for a high-profile Marvel Studios sequel in...November? That seems to be the story today in regards to Thor 2. Walt Disney Pictures has shifted some of 2013 features around today and one of those is their highly anticipated follow-up to last summer's hit. The next adventure starring Chris Hemsworth was originally scheduled to arrive in theaters July 26, 2013 but has now been shifted out of the summer schedule to a new premiere on November 15, 2013. There's currently no competition set aside for it in the week prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.
Writer Don Payne is returning to flesh out a screenplay, with Marvel chief Feige describing the sequel's story as "We're going to take Thor literally to other worlds -It will primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
