MARVEL Finds Their Writers For THOR 3
With all the buzz surrounding the Thor: The Dark World Blu-ray (Tom Hiddleston trying out for Thor and wearing Captain America’s costume), Marvel has gone ahead and announced they’ve found their writers for the third installment in the series of the Mjolnir-wielding hero. According to Variety, Marvel Studios has called up Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost to tackle the script.
Yost and Kyle, both comic book writers who have had their hands in previous Marvel scripts, have been chose to work on the threequel with Chris Hemworth expected to return, obviously. Kyle most recently served as the senior VP of production and development at Marvel Studios and Yost works in comics, TV, and movies. Thor 3 is likely going to fall in late Phase 3 or early Phase 4. This news is hot off the heels of Marvel being so happy with The Winter Soldier that they’ve asked Joe and Anthony Russo to come back for another Captain America film. Kevin Feige praised Kyle for his contributions to the Thor films:
I am proud of Craig and have enjoyed working with him over these past years. His creative instincts have helped shape “Thor” and “Thor: The Dark World” at every level of the filmmaking process. The entire team at Marvel is very happy to continue collaborating with Craig as he continues as a screenwriter working with Christopher on the forthcoming chapter of Thor’s adventure.
Obviously there are no details about what the film may be about, but Hemsworth did mention he’d like to take on Surtur or do something involving Ragnarok. We’ll have to wait and see if the star gets his wish. It doesn’t seem likely that Alan Taylor will return to direct. He went rogue in interviews when he talked about things he wasn’t pleased with as far as the Marvel filmmaking process goes. I’m sure Marvel will let him move and focus entirely on to the Terminator reboot to which he’s attached. What do you think about Thor 3 moving ahead? What do you hope happens in the next installment of the Asgardian warrior’s adventures?
