Sequel Watch: 'The Hangover Part 3,' 'Thor 2' and 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' Clip

Hangover Part 3

Speaking at a press conference to promote The Hangover Part II, which opens next week. Todd Phillips addressed the potential for a third Hangover movie. Fans of the Wolf Pack will be glad to know that there is a loose concept for a third outing which, according to Philips, would end the franchise.
While reluctant to go into specifics, Philips said, “Obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy. The third would be very much a finale and an ending. I haven’t discussed it with the actors yet. It would not follow the same template, but is very much a new idea.”
Philips also shot down the idea of character spin-offs, though he joked that Ken Jeong’s Mr. Chow has enough backstory to fill his own franchise.


 

 
Thor 2
The God of Thunder has grossed $357 million worldwide ($125 million of that domestic) and Marvel Studios has gotten the ball rolling on Thor 2. Marvel wants Thor 2 ready to go as soon as The Avengers is done shooting and are targeting a 2013 release date. The studio is looking to debut the sequel close to Iron Man 3 which is slated to open May 2013.
Storylines are currently being drafted and two early contenders for the main villains are The Enchantress and The Executioner. The Enchantress, aka Amora, is a powerful sorceress from Asgard who attempts to destroy Thor’s love interest, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), so she can have him all to herself. In the mythology of the original Marvel Comics, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) helps Amora accomplish her goal. The Executioner is so in love with The Enchantress that he will do whatever she asks, including kill Jane Foster.
Granted, these are early drafts and Marvel doesn’t expect a completed script until the end of the year, but if all goes according to plan, Thor 2 will start filming as early as March 2012.
Thor fans, sound off with your thoughts on this sequel storyline. Who would make an awesome Executioner and Enchantress?
 
Transformers: Dark of the Moon Clip
Yesterday we got our first glimpse of Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. The scene, which also features Patrick Dempsey, doesn’t include any robots… unless you include Huntington-Whiteley’s acting. Check out the clip below as Witwicky meets McDreamy and tell us if you agree.
