Production onThor 2 is pushing ahead after the announcement of its 2013 release date – the godly sequel has just landed a writer in the form of Don Payne.
Payne has worked on a Marvel property before, having been part of a conclave of writers on Fantastic Four sequel Rise Of The Silver Surfer.
He was also responsible for the not-so-super, horribly unfunny Uma Thurman ‘comedy’ My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
Hopefully he’s learnt from the mistakes of those earlier wash-outs and will be able to deliver a decent follow-up to this year’s surprisingly solid Thor.
The next announcement for Thor 2 should be a list of contenders for the director’s chair – Kenneth Branagh, who helmed the first film, won’t be returning for the sequel.
Let the Darren Aronofsky rumours commence…
Thor 2 opens 26 July 2013.
