Marvel’s Thor 3 Moving Forward with Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost Scripting

Hello again ladies and gents, well it just seems like there’s news spilling out of the woodwork today as I have an other news story relating to another Marvel Studios film as it seems like the Thor film series will be going into its third entry. The following information comes from superherohype:


“On the heels of yesterday’s news about Captain America: The Winter Soldier helmers Anthony and Joe Russo signing on for Captain America 3 comes word on another Marvel Studios sequel. Marvel announced today that Senior Vice President of Production and Development Craig Kyle will script Thor 3 alongside the returning Christopher Yost (who, with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely scripted Thor: The Dark World from a story by Don Payne and Robert Rodat).

I am proud of Craig and have enjoyed working with him over these past years,” President of Production Kevin Feige said in a prepared statement. “His creative instincts have helped shape ‘Thor’ and ‘Thor: The Dark World’ at every level of the filmmaking process. The entire team at Marvel is very happy to continue collaborating with Craig as he continues as a screenwriter working with Christopher on the forthcoming chapter of Thor’s adventure.

Kyle began his career at Marvel Studios in 2001 as the sole Creative Executive for the company’s animation division. In 2003, Craig co-created the character X-23, an adolescent female clone of Marvel’s popular character Wolverine. She was introduced into the comic book mainstream a year later, becoming one of the most popular new characters from Marvel over the last decade. Craig has developed, produced and written numerous animated series and oversaw the development and production of Marvel’s original animated direct-to-DVD projects including Ultimate Avengers: I & II, Invincible Iron Man, Hulk VS, Next Avengers, Doctor Strange, Planet Hulk and Thor: Tales of Asgard. During his many years with Marvel, Craig co-wrote a series of top selling X-Men comics including “New X-Men,” “X-23: Innocence Lost” and “X-Force” (also with Yost). Kyle was promoted to SVP of Production and Development of Marvel Studios’ live-action division five years ago.

Marvel Studios currently has three mystery titles on their schedule: One on July 8, 2016, one on May 6, 2016 and one set for July 8, 2017. Could one of those dates wind up getting filled by Thor 3?”

It was honestly inevitable but I’m still glad that it got announced because Thor needs some closure, ESPECIALLY after the ending of the last film. WE NEED ANSWERS! But other than that I would have hoped that Thor’s film would at least carry into a trilogy, and there are so many more areas of the mythology to take a look at and have even deeper connections to the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe too. Now us fans can speculate and just hope that some of our dreams come true like:

  • Finally introducing other villains like Surtur, The Wrecking Crew or even better gives Enchantress!
  • Introduce other Asgardians like Hermod (Iove that guy) and Valkyrie.
  • Give us Ragnarok so we can have the most epic battle of Thor’s life and have some more drama, death and badass fighting!

Just a few suggestions but they would be the best for securing the audiences and the fans in the next instalment especially if it is the last one.
