A few weeks after bringing in veteran TV series director Alan Taylor to helm Thor 2, Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Pictures have tasked a new scribe for some rewrites of Don Payne's original draft. Deadline reports that writer Robert Rodat ("Falling Skies," Saving Private Ryan) has come on board the production to touch up on the original script turned in last year, with the studio still hoping to begin shooting the pic by next summer.

Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston have been confirmed as returning to star in the next adventure. Actress Jamie Alexander also sat down with MTV Movies recently and revealed that she will be returning to the role of Sif as well.

"I'm a comic book nerd at heart, so I'd like to see the relationship between Thor and Sif progress. Whether or not they do that, we're not sure yet. We'll see. I think that element will be in there, but I don’t know how much."

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."

Thor 2 arrives in theaters November 15, 2013.

I really really enjoyed the action/fight scenes with Thor and the Ice Monsters in the beginning and how he used Mjolnir to destroy the crap out of them. I do hope they show some more of that stuff in the sequel.  There was not enough of it !

Not that Private Ryan and Falling Skies aren't good but do they feel like the right tone for Thor?  Oh well, maybe Rodat is a diverse talent.  I'm more dissappointed that they are going with Loki again as the villain.  IMO, one of the worst things about the X-men flicks was constantly going back to Magneto.  When you use the same villain, it seems like the same movie.

Going by his track record alone I don't see anything wrong here. He also wrote The Patriot. So a couple of good films to his credit
