A “Thor” Sequel Already in the Works

Thor is already slated to show up in the upcoming team-up movie The Avengers along with the likes of Iron Man and Captain America. But once that’s over with it’s believed that Marvel Studios will already have a Thor 2 in the works. In fact sources say that they’ve already begun kicking around story ideas for the sequel with the hope that they’ll have it ready and in theaters in the same year as Iron Man 3, in 2013. That fits the pattern we’re seeing this summer, with both Thor and Captain America hitting theaters in the same year.

Source tells us that while the Thor 2 project is still in very early stages and they don’t expect to start actually writing the script until the end of the year, internally producers are kicking around possible villains. In contention to face off against Thor are two characters named The Enchantress and The Executioner.

In Marvel Comics lore The Enchantress is a powerful Asgard sorceress named Amora. In the comics her first appearance involved an attempt to take out Thor’s love interest in order to have him all to herself. That notion seems to fit pretty well with where the first movie left us. When last we saw him Thor was pining for, and obviously head over heels in love with, Natalie Portman’s Jane. Eventually he’ll have to bring her to court, and that’s going to piss a lot of Asgardians off. Loki could figure in here, if Tom Hiddleston’s character returns, since in the comics he helps Amora seduce Thor.

The Executioner is a character closely tied to The Enchantress. He’s in love with her, and she manipulates him into doing her dirty work. He’s a warrior and easily manipulated. Toying with him could be fun for Loki too.

For now it’s all in the early stages and these are just a couple of the ideas we hear Marvel may be kicking around internally. Expect more detail as Thor 2 moves forward. (Source)

  1. I have to say…I didn’t feel like Thor was anything close to head over heals for Jane in the film. (Maybe in the comics) They knew each other for two days in the film, which hardly felt like enough time to develop more than just superficial ‘feelings’. Maybe it was just the lack of real chemistry between the actors that left me feeling like he’d get over her pretty quick if he couldn’t ever get back to Earth.
