This hasn't been a major, formal announcement but hiring screenwriters is enough to confirm that a third Thor film is in the works by Marvel. The studio reportedly has hired Craig Kyle and Christopher Yost to pen the script. The pair previously wrote the animated X-Men: Evolution series. Yost also worked on Thor: The Dark World while Kyle moved his way up in the Marvel executive offices and is currently the senior VP of production and development. Chris Hemsworth will also be returning as the God of Thunder.
This comes soon after the Russo brothers began negotiations to return and write the third Captain America film. There are no plot details released for the third installments of either Thor or Captain America, but there is a possibility we might see either of them in 2016 or 2017. Marvel has locked up dates during both years for untitled projects. There are a number of projects that could go to these dates such as Thor 3, Captain America 3, Iron Man 4, a new movie about the Hulk, or it could go to the rumored Doctor Strange project. There are even talks of a Black Panther movie and it is also possible 2017 could be The Avengers 3. Either way, there are a lot of stories being tossed around at Marvel and they have until 2021 to get it all done. I would imagine they'll wrap up the characters we have now before fully moving onto Phase Three characters (like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange), but you never know.
Here is the current timetable of Marvel films coming our way:
2014 - Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4th), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (May 2nd), X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23rd), Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1st)
2015 - The Avengers: Age of Ultron (May 1st), Fantastic Four (June 19th), Ant-Man (July 17th)
2016 - X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27th), The Amazing Spider-Man 3 (June 10th), Untitled Marvel Project
2017 - Untitled Marvel Project
2018 - The Amazing Spider-Man 4 (May 4th)
