In the past couple of hours alone we've learned that Monster director Patty Jenkins is in the running to direct Thor 2, and that we likely won't be seeing another Captain America solo film until 2014. But for fans of the superhero genre, particularly those of the Marvel variety, that isn't nearly enough. So how about some Thor 2 plot details as the cherry on top of your sundae?

While reporting the news that Jenkins is a potential helmer for the God of Thunder sequel, EW reached out to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige for comment, and he spilled a bit of what we might be seeing in the character's next adventure. For starters, while Thor took us to the lands of Asgard, Midgard, and Jotunheim, the sequel will be exploring the other six realms. Furthermore, the movie will also develop the relationship between the Norse God (Chris Hemsworth) and his human love interest, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), as well as his father, Odin (Anthony Hopkins). Said Feige about the project, "[Thor 2 will] primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds."

I don't think I'm alone in saying that the scenes in Asgard were much more compelling than the scenes on Earth in the first film, so having the characters travel to the other worlds is a great step in the right direction. For those unaware, the other six worlds include:
  • Alfheim: Land of the Light Elves
  • Hel: Land of the dead
  • Muspelheim: Land of the demons
  • Nidavellir: Home of the dwarves
  • Svartalfheim: Land of the Dark Elves
  • Vanaheim: Land of the Vanir, a “sister race” of the Asgardians.

Throw in an interesting villain (The Enchantress and The Executioner perhaps?) and it could be a fantastic follow-up.
