While we all speculate on whether 'Doctor Strange' or 'Black Panther' will be a part of Marvel's Phase 3, today comes some actual new on what one of those Phase 3 movies may be. Unfortunately, there's no major announcement on either of those two new films, but instead it looks like one of the Phase 3 movies will be another sequel, alongside 'Thor 3' and 'Captain America 3' - 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'.
'Thor 2' dropped his hammer on the box office over the weekend, posting a stout $86.1 million to lead all contenders. To date, it has banked $327 million worldwide, and has a very good chance at approaching the $1 billion global mark … something that is becoming status quo for Marvel Studios.
While the end credits for ‘Thor: The Dark World’ teased ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ fans of Asgard’s protector probably want to know when they’ll be able to see 'Thor 3' in theaters again – if ever. Let’s break down everything that we know about ‘Thor 3,’ starting with a release date.
Post-'Thor 2,' Chris Hemsworth's Marvel contract has him in place to tackle 'The Avengers 2,' 'The Avengers 3' and, should Marvel sign off on it, 'Thor 3.' So, after he faces the Dark Elves of 'The Dark World' and Ultron himself, what new threat could menace him and his Asgardian brethren in a potential third standalone installment? The actor has some ideas for where the story should go, and it could be one to end it all.
