Thor 2 Is Coming Sooner Than You’d Think

The God of Thunder is ready to strike again ... and again. Thor proved a solid hit for Marvel this year, and Deadline reports that Thor 2 is now being prepped for a July 26, 2013 release date, though Kenneth Branagh won't return as director. For those of you keeping score at home, this scheduling move makes Thor one of the most prolific superheroes ever, since he'll have starred front and center in three huge summer movies over just as many years: 2011's Thor, 2012's The Avengers, and 2013's Thor 2. Is Marvel running a risk by sending the Chris Hemsworth character into too many tours of duty too soon? [Deadline]
