Marvel Confirms That Both Thor and Captain America Will Get Sequels

Even though Marvel Studios is two weeks away from releasing Thor and over three months away from dropping Captain America: The First Avenger into theaters, the comic company is so confident in its summer superheroes -- played by Chris Hemsworth and Chris Evans respectively -- that it is already planning blockbuster sequels for each.

In a new interview with Disney's quarterly magazine D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed his future plans for both Thor and Captain America:

"Thor will go off into a new adventure, and Captain America will continue to explore the modern world in another film of his own. We hope that holds true for the characters appearing in that film -- Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the spy organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. --all of whom are more than worthy and capable of carrying their own films. And, we've got a lot of other characters we're prepping and getting ready for film debuts: the world of martial arts, these great cosmic space fantasies, Dr. Strange, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe. There are many, many stories to be mined."

Exciting news indeed, especially since we can rest easy knowing that Captain America will defeat the Nazis in this summer's First Avenger -- as if there was any doubt. Now, who would you like to see Chris Evans take on in a modern day sequel?

    Unless you live in Australia like me and you're going to see it tomorrow 🙂
