The film will mark the third big screen appearance of Chris Hemsworthâ€™s Thor and Tom Hiddlestonâ€™s Loki following 2011â€™s Thor and this yearâ€™s Marvelâ€™s The Avengers. Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander and Idris Elba have been confirmed to be returning for the Alan Taylor-directed sequel as well, though even more of the first filmâ€™s cast likely to be back as well.
Mikkelsen is no stranger to Norse legend nor to tales of gods and men, having appeared in Nicolas Winding Refnâ€™s Valhalla Rising and the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans.
Featuring a screenplay by Robert Rodat and Don Payne, Thor 2 is scheduled to be released on November 15, 2013.
