The Entertainment Weekly website reports that "Thor 2" will take Chris Hemsworth "to other worlds," according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. The movie, he told the site, will “primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and how the new dynamic with his father (Odin, played by Anthony Hopkins) is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."
The Nine Worlds is a reference to the planes of existence that are part of the Asgardian mythology.
First, of course, fans will see Thor in "The Avengers" next year. "Thor 2" will not be in theaters before the summer of 2013.
Thor may also be getting a new woman in his life, according to EW. A leading candidate to fill the director's chair is Patty Jenkins, best known for "Monster," which won an Oscar for Charlize Theron in 2003. Nothing has been finalized yet.
