Marvel’s Thor 2 appears to be back on track, and we’ve now got a brief update on the production. After running through what seemed like a revolving door of potential directors (the latest of which, Patty Jenkins, left the project in early December), television helmer Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) has been set to direct the superhero follow-up. Star Tom Hiddleston recently spoke to Empire and revealed that filming is poised to begin this summer:
“All I know about Thor 2 is that we’re supposed to film it in London in the summer and that it is being directed by Alan Taylor.”
Like I said, it’s a brief update, but it’s good to know that things seem to be moving forward. Both Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are set to return, but plot details are being (predictably) kept under lock and key. We should have a better idea of where the story will go after The Avengers in May. Thor 2 is slated for November 15th, 2013.
