Seemingly through the sheer will of tumblr — and/or just Marvel's general plan — Tom Hiddleston is returning to the role of Loki for the third Thor film. Can you hear the gifs being made already? I can.
The third in the Thor movies will be called Thor: Ragnarok and is slated to hit theaters July 28, 2017, just two months after the Guardians Of the Galaxy sequel and four months before the recently-announced Black Panther. As Marvel president Kevin Feige said at an event discussing the studio's line-up through 2019, "This is a very important movie for us in Phase Three. We plan on taking Thor to another level. It picks up where we leave Thor in Avengers: Age of Ultron and impacts everything that comes after."Considering Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, and Guardians Of the Galaxy 2 all come out between Ultron and Ragnarok, this might indicate that Thor will not be taking part in the superheroic rift that Civil War will explore.
