There's still a few months to go until we see the God of Thunder smash his hammer into things, with Thor: The Dark World landing in theaters in November, but plans are already underway for a third installment of the franchise. One of the stars of the first two movies, , spoke to NME about the future of the blond bombshell, revealing:
Well I think they are going to make a Thor 3, so I think Anthony will be pleased.
The Anthony in question is of course , who plays Thor's father, Odin, and is apparently super excited about making loads more Thor movies.
It's not a massive shock to learn that we're going to get a Thor: Ragnarok as it seems to be Marvel's modus operandi to give their superheroes three movie story arcs. Iron Man got three movies and if I was a betting man (and ever since I lost my big toe to a Bhutanese bookmaker over a game of Connect Four, I most certainly am not) I would put money on Captain America getting a third installment as well. Studio chief also revealed recently that Marvel has movies planned through 2021, so it makes sense to include Thor in Phase 3, alongside lesser-known properties Doctor Strange and Ant-Man.
