, Thor's evil step brother who is played by English actor Tom Hiddleston, will feature in the new batch of Marvel films recently announced. The list includes Thor: Ragnarok and both parts of Avengers: Infinity War.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, made the announcement, reported Ace Showbiz.
It was pretty much a given he would put in an appearance in the third Thor film. By the end of Thor: The Dark World he was able to take the form of King Odin and had persuaded Thor (Chris Hemsworth) to return to Earth and be with Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman.
He will also play a part in Avengers: Infinity Part 1 and Part 2 because his sceptre has one of the Infinity Stones in it and once it is placed in the Infinity Gauntlet it will set off havoc for the band of superheroes to deal with.
Thor: Ragnarok will be released on July 28, 2017, while Avengers: Infinity Part 1 will come out the following year on May 4, 2018, before Part 2 follows on May 3, 2019.
