Thor 2 and Captain America 2 renamed

Marvel announce new titles for superhero sequels

‘Thor 2’ and ‘Captain America 2’ are no more. Marvel has renamed them ‘Thor: The Dark World’ and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’.

The name changes were announced at San Diego Comic-Con, and could hint at possible storylines for the sequels.

‘The Winter Soldier’ is a reference to the recent 2005 comic storyline, which saw Captain America’s presumed-dead pal Bucky re-emerge as a brainwashed Russian super-soldier.

‘The Dark World’ is more mysterious, but hints at a moodier and umm, darker, jaunt for the mythical hero this time around.

The ‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America’ are set for release on November 8, 2013 and April 4, 2014 respectively.
