Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston)

Thor poster (Loki)In an interview with Empire, Tom Hiddleston has confirmed the start date for the troubled Thor 2 production.

Remaining fairly taciturn on the subject, and coy on the future of Loki in the universe, Hiddleston commented: “All I know about Thor 2 is that we’re supposed to film it in London in the summer and that it is being directed by Alan Taylor“.

Once The Avengers has been released in cinemas in April/May this year, we will be able to gain a more accurate picture of the future of his character, as he is set to play a major villain role in the super-hero team-up.

Thor 2 was originally set to be directed by Patty Jenkins, but when she subsequently left the film citing creative differences, Game of ThronesAlan Taylor took over the big chair.

Thor 2 is due to hit cinemas on 15 November 2013 from Disney. It will be part of a second cycle of films that will ultimately lead to a sequel to next year’s The Avengers.
