After a month in front runner status among the directing candidates for Thor 2, Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures has officially confirmed that helmer Patty Jenkins (Monster) is the one who will be leading the follow-up into theaters. The announcement comes just a day after the studios shifted the sequel out of the summer line-up and into a release premiere of November 15, 2013.

The statement has also confirmed that Chris Hemsworth will be joined by his co-stars Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston. As before in last summer's installment, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige will be producing and screenwriter Don Payne has been charged with fleshing out the scripted adventure.

Producer Feige has already described the sequel's story by saying "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."

Thanks to Chopsaki for the submission.

I love what I hear. Can't wait to hear who the new enemy will be, there's no shortage of candidates who'd team up with Loki or who Loki would look to manipulate for his own purposes. I've been championing The Surtur Saga for a while so I'm hoping for an adaptation of that myself

I hope the Warriors Three and Sif play a bigger role this time around. I would also like to get more of Thor/Sif relation/attraction than the small hint we got in the first film that Sif is into him.

It seems that Marvel would like to keep Thor away from typical tent pole directors.  Good for them.  I've never really been a fan of the Thor books but it seems to have a more operatic tone than most comics and I'm pleased to see that Marvel will keep this property out of the hands of the Brett Ratners and Michael Bays of the world.   It's also why I was so sad to hear Aronovsky was leaving Wolverine.

And here I though Leeeroooy Jenkins! would be in the movie.

Marvel's done a great job picking directors so far, so I trust their pick. I trust Marvel with its storyline for the movie, but I'd much rather see Thor take Jane to Asgard where he has to battle Sorceress, Executioner and maybe even Surtur. Better yet, have Thor battle the world serpent who's put into play by Sorceress and her bodyguard Executioner and "pet" Fenris. Thor could battle the serpent while the Warriors 3, Sif and Baldar (hopefully) take on the others.

I've never ben a fan of Thor's space adventures.

I'm trusting Marvel, too but I'd like to read an interview with her so I get a sense of what she is like and what her take is for the movie.

I'm also a little surprised that Portman will be in the sequel. Even before she won her Oscar for Black Swan she is always perceived as a class actress that can pick and choose what she wants to do. I know she didn't find the SW prequels to be a great acting job so I would have thought she would be wary of genre fare and to be playing the secondary love interest for the hero again.

I still wanna see Tarantino directing Thor.  Or maybe Eastwood, "Get thou off my lawn!"

Big come down with Brannagh not being involved.  I'll wait for more detail before I start leg humping unlike some here.

Cosign Wise...Surtur saga would be AWESOME...

I agree with others on wanting to hear more from Jenkins herself, that would go a long way towards convincing folks (fans) she's right for the job, although I have plenty of faith in the folks at Marvel Studios...

Too bad no KB, but what can you really do besides hope for the best in the sequel? I'm not too worried, all the Avengers-centric films have been pretty sweet so far...
