The production process for the action and fantasy Marvel movie Thor 3 will soon begin, with the news being confirmed that Craig Kyle has been roped in as a writer this time. He will be collaborating on the script with one of the writers from the last Thor movie, Christoffer Yost.
Marvel Studios had confirmed Thor 3 in January this year, and it is being speculated that it can come out by the end of 2016. The studio had revealed that the third movie in Thor Series is already under development.
Kevin Feige has mentioned that Thor 3 has been declared along with Marvel’s other gem, Captain America.
The plot of the movie was discussed on several movie blogs while one of them revealed that this movie will circle around how Thor will Sabotage the world of Asgard. This is adopted from Ragnarok’s story from an action comic book series.
The Super Villain Loki, which is played by actor Tom Hiddleston, will be increasing the fun again this time. Hiddleston discussed many tid-bits from the plot of Thor 3 in his interactions with the media.
One of the High points of his many discussions was when he revealed while talking on the subject of Ragnarok that this time all the limits of destruction will be crossed as the level of mass demolition can be extended to the outer Universe even.
He also mentioned that Loki might be the driving force behind these actions. We could also get to see the interactions between Balder and Loki again as Balder will possibly work under Loki for his missions.
Chris Hemsworth is all ready to come back as Thor again while Natalie Portman will also make a return in this sequel with her character.

The #IceBucketChallenge is a “campaign” stars are doing on the web and you can have more information about it on the following blog.
Tom Hiddleston is being courted to play the lead role in an ambitious remake of the biblical epic Ben-Hur, reports Deadline.
Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov was announced as the man to take the new version forward in 2013, after studio MGM bought screenwriter Keith Clarke’s adaptation of Lew Wallace’s popular 1880 novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. The screenplay has since been revised by 12 Years a Slave’s Oscar-winning writer John Ridley.
Hiddleston is said to be MGM and partner studio Paramount’s top choice to play Judah Ben-Hur, the fictional Jewish prince introduced in Wallace’s novel and portrayed by Charlton Heston in the 1959 blockbuster. He has been approached by the studio, but has not yet agreed to sign on.
While Hiddleston has made a name for himself with supporting turns in Thor and The Avengers, Bekmambetov’s film would mark his first major Hollywood title role. However, the British actor is also considering another film for MGM, the literary adaptation Me Before You, based on Jojo Moyes’ bestselling novel.
I’ve got contacted by Justin Hill (be sure to check his Facebook Page) about this old interview of Tom during Thor 2 Promotion, that he’s been doing for ScoopLA and he’s been kind enough to send me embed code to his piece interview video. Enjoy it below!
