Back in October, Marvel confirmed that the next Thor sequel will be called Thor: Ragnarok, which is set for release on July 28, 2017. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston will be back as Thor and Loki in this Marvel Phase Three adventure, but there is very little we know about the story. While doing press for his new cyber-thriller Blackhat, Chris Hemsworth revealed that there isn't much he can say about Thor: Ragnarok, mainly because there is no script in place yet, but he did tease that "it's pretty big."
"But also, there is no script for Thor, the next Thor, so I have no idea where we're going to end up, but it's pretty big."
The mighty Asgardian warrior Thor will next be seen in the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron, where he and the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes will square off with the villainous Ultron (James Spader). There have been rumors that Avengers: Age of Ultron will end with a very different Avengers lineup, but when asked if Avengers: Age of Ultron will affect where we'll see Thor in Thor: Ragnarok, the actor had this to say.
"Yeah, definitely. I mean, it has to, doesn't it? Unless I was standing on the sidelines."
Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle are writing the script for Thor: Ragnarok, after Christopher Yost co-wrote the script for Thor: The Dark World and Craig Kyle served as a producer on that sequel. It's worth noting that /marvel-announces-a-new-female-thor-will-this-affect-the-movie-franchise/Marvel announced in July that a female will take over as Thor in the new comic books, with some speculating that Chris Hemsworth may pass the Thor mantle over to a female. Of course, we'll have to wait and see how this affects the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the future, but for now, we can at least see Chris Hemsworth return in Thor: Ragnarok.
