Screenwriters Hired for THOR 3

Marvel has been dominating the box office in recent years with their planned Phases, and that framework doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Yesterday it was reported that Joe and Anthony Russo are returning to helm "Captain America 3", just after the wrapped "Captain America 2". That certainly instills much confidence for fans and audiences alike, since Marvel is not in the business of playing it safe, so they must feel they have tapped into something fantastic with the directing duo.

Now news of another third chapter has surfaced, in the form of our favorite God of Thunder with "Thor 3". Alan Taylor's "Thor: The Dark World" was critically and financially a hit, so it comes as no surprise that it will become a trilogy. The screenwriters have now been confirmed and Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost have been hired to co-write the script.

Yost has been involved with the Marvel family for some time now, having penned several Marvel comics and animated series. He also did a script polish on "Thor: The Dark World", so he is very familiar with the tone and main players of that particular franchise.

Kyle, who serves as the senior vice president of production at Marvel, has worked extensively in Marvel animation as well and also served as an executive producer on "Thor: The Dark World". Both of these gents seem to be quite a seamless fit to take us on our next adventure to Asgard and beyond.

We aren't sure as to the plot details or any specifics at this time, but given the success of both Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, you can almost guarantee they will be reprising their roles.

Are you pleased with the screenwriters? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
