It's going to be really interesting to see where Marvel takes the future of their films after the epic Avengers spectacle. It's hard not to imagine the Marvel movie universe blowing up from here. These movies are only going to get better and better. They may not be bigger, but they could get better. As of right now Iron Man 3 is currently filming, Captain America 2 is in production, and Thor 2 is scheduled to start shooting later this year. Marvel's also developing two other secret film projects.
Marvel President Kevin Feige recently did an interview with Empire Magazine to talk about Thor 2, in which he explained,
We’re going to see the other side of Asgard. It’s not all polished and golden in this film. And the events of Avengers will have affected Thor for sure. His relationship with Loki will continue to evolve, and the biggest part is Natalie and Thor returning with Jane Foster.
This isn't really any new news, we've heard that director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones) is going to take the world to a more gritty place already. Feige then goes on to talk about the villain of the sequel. After seeing the end credits scene in The Avengers I figured that Thanos would be the villain in Thor, but apparently that's not the case. When asked about Thanos Feige had this to say...
No, future, future. But there will be a major new villain. A major, major new antagonist…
So prepare yourselves because we're about to see an epic new villain come into play! Regardless of who they bring in to take on Thor, I hope to hell that Enchantress will have a part to play in the story this next time around! As far as Thanos goes, I think we actually might be waiting around for The Avengers sequel for it to happen.
Thor 2 is set to be released on November 15th, 2013, and I'm looking forward to seeing the story that Marvel and Taylor are cooking up for us fans. Who do you think will be the main villain of Thor 2? Who would you like to see?
