Marvel Studios has announced that a "Thor 3" sequel is being developed, according to a Jan. 30 report on MTV. Kevin Feige, head of Marvel revealed that Craig Kyle, the studio’s senior vice president of production, will be writing in collaboration with writer Christopher Yost.

Feige had this to say about the writing team:

"I am proud of Craig and have enjoyed working with him over these past years. 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 may wear a white collar these days but he has a comic book background that should lend itself nicely to the project. He and Yost have worked on numerous comic books in the past, not the least of which is “X-Force” and “New X-Men.”

It’s hard to say where “Thor 3” will fall into Marvel’s phase 3 timeline but it is probably a safe bet that the project is farther along than we think.

As for storyline, that’s anybody’s guess as well. suggests on possible storyline might involve Loki disguised as Odin as he tries to destroy the world.

For now, we’ll have to wait patiently for the next appearance of our favorite hammer-bearer. Thor will next be seen in 2015 when "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" releases.
