Thor 2 will land in July 2013

Just after Iron Man 3

Thor will definitely be heading back to the big screen for a second solo outing after The Avengers.

Marvel and Disney have announced that Thor 2 has been given a release date of 26 July 2013 (for the US - no word on the UK yet).

That means that Thor 2 will take its bow just two months after Iron Man rolls out his third solo feature film, with Iron Man 3 due 3 May 2013.

Though Thor’s early trailers generally generated shrugs around the Total Film office, the film itself surprised us with its rich storyline and well-placed humour.

The film’s now grabbed $437m in worldwide ticket sales, which justifies Marvel’s decision to turn the film into its own mini-franchise (at least at the business end).

Sadly, one of Thor’s pivotal figures won’t return for Thor 2 – director Kenneth Branagh is only sticking around in a producing capacity. Shame.

Thor blimey! Fancy a sequel? Or were you not impressed by the first film? Talk to us below...

      This news has made my morning! I was very happy to hear that Iron Man 3 would follow on from the events of The Avengers film, but a sequel to Thor as well? Fantastic! Throughly enjoyed the first one. Now all they need to announce are sequels to Hulk & Captain America and I'll be a happy little Marvel-lite, I'd love to see all four main characters in their own adventures just a year later after their big team up! Shame Branagh won't be directing the sequel though, but it's exciting news nonetheless.

      Don't get too excited, they're using the scriptwriter from Fantastic Four II :-(

      ...Oh. Still, Branagh's still involved, so there is some hope for the sequel, no?
