Thor and The Avengers

Kevin Feige, the President of Production at Marvel Studios, has given Empire news on the upcoming Thor and The Avengers movies.

Feige gives a casting update for Thor: “We will probably be having cast announcements in the next month or so on Thor. We’re looking to cast Loki and Odin soon, and the main female role. And we’ll also hopefully have lockdown shortly, gearing towards the beginning of production, which will be early next year. So I think there will be a lot of announcements between now and then.”

Director Kenneth Branagh has already started prepping the first few action sequences with some “spectacular animatics,” and a rewrite of the film’s draft script is in progress. And an update on Marvel’s site has the release date set at May 20, 2011 instead of June 17, 2011.

As for The Avengers Zak Penn has already been signed on to write the script, and has begun an outline. Since the Marvel releases will all come together for this movie Feige reports that Penn is, “spending a lot of his time looking into what we’re doing with Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, seeing how we’re tying it all together.”
