SCOOP: THOR 2 to Begin Production in January 2012; Otherworldly Characters Set to Return

Though director Kenneth Branagh's replacement in the upcoming sequel has yet to be named, sources close to the production have revealed to us that the project is scheduled to begin filming early next year.

Chris Hemsworth will reprise his larger than life role as Marvel Studios' God of Thunder in Thor 2 which is tentatively scheduled for theatrical release on July 28th, 2013. Director Kenneth Branagh -- who garnered much praise for his dedication to the first film -- is not attached to return. Screenwriter Don Payne, who was one of the contributors to the Thor script, has been hired to produce a treatment for the sequel.

We've recently learned that Thor 2 is being geared to begin filming in early January 2012. Also, actors Ray Stevenson, Josh Dallas, Jaimie Alexander, Tadanobu Asano and Idris Elba (who play Volstagg, Fandrall, Sif, Hogun and Heimdall, respectively) will have major parts in the film. Supposedly, Thor 2 will not feature a return to Earth but will instead explore several other of the Nine Realms including Hel.

There's no word yet whether Tom Hiddleston, Anthony Hopkins or Natalie Portman are slated to return as well.

well damn...kinda feel bad for Hemsworth lol by the time Avengers finishes....he just have a couple of months or so to rest then hit the gym again and get massive for the role again, so Cap 2 will film around the same time too. i have a feeling it'll get pushed back

Sounds good but I pretty much figured it would start filming around that time, possibly a couple months later because it is being released almost three months later this time around.

I hope this gives them enough time to get a good script and hire a good director and give him enough time to get acquainted with it all. 5-6 months and it sounds like not much other than ideas have gone into it yet.

Exploring the other realms could be cool, but Thor has to do a ton more smashing this time around, and this might give him the opportunity to do that. Would be a bit of a weird shift though since he was so adamant about being a defender of earth then not go back to it after the Avengers. And something has to happen with Portman's Foster.

Having to 'save earth' again could become redundant, and I wasn't a big fan of the location they used for earth, but I wonder if staying solely in other realms will in effect "alienate" general audiences.

Why these filmamkers can't take their time and make sequels with some time apart. This movie shouldn't come out till at least 2014. I hope the screenwriter has thought good about the script cause I didn't fell this last one at all.
